Personal Injury Attorneys
After being in an accident, the last thing you want to worry about is how you are going to pay your bills and provide for your family. We believe that a personal injury attorney should do more than just review medical records and negotiate a settlement with the insurance company. If you can’t make it to our office, we will come meet you at the hospital or in your home. A good personal injury attorney works efficiently to get you the highest payout in the least amount of time and keeps you updated throughout the process. You should not have to wait until a final settlement to start recovering some of your damages. That is why we make our first priority to get the disability payments that your own insurance may have, even if you don’t know about it.
We do not shy away from taking a case to trial if we believe that the insurance company is not making a fair offer. We believe that our clients should never feel pressured into taking an unfair settlement. Most law firms increase their contingency fee if they take your case to trial. Not us. We charge the same fee whether you settle your case quickly or decide you want your case heard by a jury.
Personal Injury attorneys are most commonly associated with car accidents. Today, drivers are more distracted than ever. Whether it was an icy road or a texting teen that caused your accident, we can help you. Severe car accidents may result in debilitating health that will affect your ability to earn for years to come. Do not settle your car accident case without consulting one of our attorneys first.
Before you can recover, you must establish that the other party was at fault (if you were at fault, you may still be entitled to damages from your own insurance). Liability in most car accidents is easy to establish. Usually, there will be a police report and several witnesses to corroborate the story.
Most car accident cases can be settled in three to six months depending on the complexity of the case and injuries you sustained. In the event we cannot reach a fair settlement, we will take your case to trial which may take up to a year or more.
Dog bites can be very serious injuries. Furthermore, they often result in more serious issues that require medical attention such as a rabies shot. Owning a pet is a responsibility. Failing to keep that pet under control gives rise to liability.
It is very common for the dog owner to be friend or family of the victim. In fact, most dog bites happen on the property where the dog resides while the victim was a guest. This should no dissuade someone from contacting an attorney as in almost every case the owner’s insurance company will indemnify him or her from personal liability.
Slip and Fall
Slip and Fall injuries can be the result of poorly maintained walkways, hazardous objects or liquids left behind, ice, etc. In most cases, the property owners are required to maintain certain standards of care to prevent slip and fall injuries. Failure to do so creates liability.
To recover on a slip and fall case, you must prove that the owner had a duty of a certain level of care and breached that duty which resulted in your injury.
