Any injury accident will have serious ramifications. There are significant costs involved in medical care, rehabilitation, nursing care, medications, as well as loss of income from work and other damages. In cases in which the individual has been permanently injured, each case is carefully evaluated to determine what amount should be sought in a settlement. If insurance company refuses to offer fair compensation, our personal injury lawyer can press forward with a legal action to pursue justice in civil court, or in some cases, federal court. The large majority of injury cases are settled without the need for litigation.
Experience in Civil and Federal Court in Personal Injury Cases
It is important to have an attorney representing you who has trial experience should it be necessary to take the matter to the next level. You deserve to be paid fair and full compensation - not offered a settlement that is inadequate. Insurance companies traditionally offer low settlements in the hopes that an injured victim will settle quickly, and for less. Those who are not represented by a high quality injury lawyer may accept a settlement offer far, far lower than could be recovered with the firm's help.
The process involves an initial meeting with our firm. In this consultation, we can evaluate your claim and exactly what occurred. We take on injury claims on a contingency basis - you will owe no legal fees unless we are successful in recovering compensation for you. This allows you to have top quality legal counsel working for you without worrying about paying the legal fees until the case is resolved.
With over 1,000 depositions, arbitrations and mediations, our firm has the level of experience you want on your side. We know personal injury law and can quickly advise you of what to expect, the length of time it may take to settle, and how we can help you recover the compensation you deserve. Each case is different. You have suffered the consequences of a negligent act, and the person or entity that is responsible must be held accountable. In our justice system, this is measured in financial terms. The types of compensation that can be pursued include both economic and non-economic damages. The economic damages are the direct and indirect costs that are the result of the injuries, including medical bills, ambulance bills, nursing, rehabilitation, medications, transportation, loss of income and other financial losses.
Permanent injuries will require long term medical care, and the costs are extremely high, and will last a lifetime in many cases. Non-economic damages are the more personal losses you have suffered, such as pain and suffering of the loss of quality of life. Our firm pursues all of these damages, and takes on these cases with the goal of recovering the maximum possible. Should there have been a case of gross negligence, it may be possible to pursue punitive damages as well - those that have the goal of punishing the negligent party.
The first step after an accident, injury or the loss of a loved one is to contact our firm to discuss your case and determine the best course of legal action. We are genuinely concerned about our clients and their future, and do everything possible to make the process move ahead as quickly as can be achieved. We know how important it is that you recover fair compensation. We are on your side and prepared to negotiate a settlement that truly reflects the impact of the injuries on your life. For families who have lost a loved one, the consequences are permanent. Those persons or corporations that have led to the death of another individual must be forced to pay compensation to the close family, as a form of justice. Call our firm today.
