Individuals respond to injuries in their own way, but for most a serious injury results in disruption of their daily lives, their relationships, and their well-being. The pain and anxiety of the injury and the healing process can be prolonged, and the stress of dealing with health care providers, insurance companies, and technical forms can make matters worse.
The person who was responsible for causing your injury should pay for your damages--medical bills, lost pay, damaged property, and your personal pain and discomfort.
We have extensive experience handling a wide range of incidents giving rise to personal injury claims. From all types of motor vehicle accidents to slip and falls and other premises liability claims. We are often able to resolve personal injury claims through negotiation and settlement, but we never hesitate to proceed to court when this will protect our clients’ interests.
We will handle all aspects of your personal injury claim. For example, if you are involved in a car accident, there are generally three components to your potential recovery: a claim for lost wages and medical bills, a bodily injury claim, and a claim for property damage. We will address all of these matters. Following an accident, you may be contacted by an insurance company that wants to settle your case as quickly as possible. It is important to know that the insurance company does not have your interest in mind. The insurance company's goal is to pay you as little as possible for your injuries. They will not tell you everything you need to know.
Accepting a settlement generally bars you from any future actions even if your condition worsens or you develop new symptoms. Do not sign anything from an insurance company before speaking with us.
Many people have concerns about being able to afford quality legal representation. We help by offering contingent fee representation of personal injury matters. We get paid only if you get paid, because the fee is simply a percentage of your total recovery. If there is no recovery, then you do not owe anything in legal fees. Clients only remain responsible for certain costs of litigation. The contingent fee allows injured people to enlist the patient, careful, and skillful work of our attorneys and staff regardless of income level.
