Personal Injury

Personal Injury

If you have suffered a catastrophic injury as the result of someone's negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for damages from those responsible. This kind of injury is often accompanied by long-term or permanent disability. You or a family member may be unable to maintain employment or return to a customary and ordinary quality of life as a result, creating an incredible financial strain. Our attorneys have represented individuals who have been injured in motor vehicle accidents, dog attacks, slip and falls, nursing home neglect, and product liabilities.  Hiring our experienced attorneys is the first step in protecting your rights and options.

It is important to understand you may have several options depending on the type and cause of injury. For instance, in a serious automobile accident, your own policy may help to provide benefits by offering personal injury protection on automobile policies, which covers the policyholder's medical bills arising from an accident and underinsured coverage that helps protect you if the person who injures you in a car wreck does not have enough coverage.  Likewise, some conduct by responsible parties may be so grossly negligent that the injured victim may be entitled to punitive damages.

Regardless of the cause of your life-altering injury, there will be many important factors surrounding your case. Sorting it all out to establish fault and the extent of the damages you suffer likely will necessitate help from a qualified attorney.  Each case is unique, but there are a number of possible damages that victims might suffer. It is important to be compensated fully for all the damages you or your loved one suffer to be sure you receive the care and service you need. Given the severe nature of catastrophic injuries, the judgment or settlement sums are often large and may cover:

  • Medical bills (past and future)
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced capacity to earn a wage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Punitive damages

In order to get the just compensation you deserve, you may have to secure expert testimony from doctors, surgeons, physical therapists, life care planners and other professionals with the requisite knowledge and experience to investigate and communicate the specifics of your case. Your legal counsel can help you secure this testimony as well as other evidence that is required to prove your case.
