We all know that accidents happen and unforeseen occurrences befall us all. Most serious injuries, however, are usually due to negligence and preventable. To make matters worse, the person or people who are victims in an accident are usually not the ones who were negligent, thought they tend to pay the most cost. It is our mission to help ensure that those responsible for causing individuals serious person injuries are held accountable and that our clients get the compensation they need to care for their ongoing health and personal needs.
Handling a Personal Injury Claim
An injury can be a life-altering event, depending on the severity. In addition to the already difficult task of caring for yourself or your loved one, serious injuries can leave you fighting with the insurance and medical companies to try and get your health expenses paid.
As part of our commitment to obtain justice for our clients, we collect and evaluate information regarding your claim, fight to obtain payment of your medical bills, recover lost wages, attempt to negotiate a settlement and go to trial if necessary.
The areas that we work with personal injury cases include, but are not limited to:
- Slip and Falls
- Automobile Accidents
- Premise Liability
- Wrongful Death
Some businesses or individuals may try to appease the victim by offering modest compensation or a seemingly good will offer in exchange for a signed release form that forces them to relinquish the right pursue legal action. It is very important to consult with an attorney prior to agreeing to anything. Many people have signed these types of agreements, only to discover weeks later that they are experiencing some side effects or medical issues as a result of the accident.
Even if the immediate injury resulting from an accident seems to be small, consulting with an attorney should always be the first step taken to protect yourself from costly medical problems down the road.
