About Personal Injury Law
Our country’s civil court system provides victims of negligence and wrongdoing with legal solutions to pursue damage awards for their losses. If an individual or business is responsible for an accident or incident that caused you harm, they can be found financially liable for your personal injury. Compensation for personal injury cases will usually include coverage for wage losses, medical bills, pain and suffering, and more. In some cases that go to trial, punitive damages may also be awarded.
A personal injury may come from an auto accident including those involving drunk drivers, pedestrians, motorcycles, trucks, aviation, as well as public transportation, a job site construction accident, the attack of a dog (which falls within the broader category of premises liability), or incident of medical malpractice. In these and similar cases, there is a victim hurt by someone else’s carelessness, irresponsibility, or purposeful act. Injuries resulting from these cases are often life-changing with effects that last long into the future. In some tragic cases, a victim may even pass away as a result of their injuries.
In personal injury cases of all kinds, it is usually an insurance company that will offer a settlement or that you will seek compensation from in court. In some cases, there may be more than one insurer, such as when an accident involves product liability from faulty equipment. Dealing with insurance adjusters and deflecting their lowball settlement tactics can be extremely difficult after an accident – for both the victim and their family. Insurance employees are focused on their company’s bottom line and may even try to pin the blame for an accident on you. An experienced personal injury attorney represents you, conducts a thorough investigation, and aggressively pursues rightful compensation on your behalf. We can also fight for your interests if your insurance company breaks faith with you, refusing to pay appropriate settlements or falsely denying your claim.
Our firm is also one of very few in the area offering bilingual representation for personal injury and medical malpractice.
