Personal Injury

Personal Injury
Sometimes, individuals worry about the complexity of a lawsuit and choose not to consult with an attorney; however, hiring an attorney does not necessarily mean a lawsuit will be filed. On many occasions, once the insurance company discovers that the individual who sustained injuries has representation, they re-evaluate their initial position and offer a favorable settlement, without heading to court.

Our attorneys have been practicing personal injury law for years, as such, he understands the importance of investigating the incident that led to a client’s injuries, hiring experts to testify on behalf of his clients, attaining relevant medical records and determining which tactics will be used by the defendant’s counsel. Once these tactics are realized, our attorneys call upon their experience to address them; thus, improving their client’s odds of a fair settlement of his or her personal injury case.

Slips, Trips and Falls

If you have sustained an injury while on someone else’s property, you might be entitled to compensation. Obtaining compensation for your injuries requires proving negligence. For example, a business that mops the floor and neglects to set out a ‘wet floor’ sign may be held accountable for any injuries sustained by a patron. Our attorneys have successfully helped individuals attain a fair settlement or judgment for injuries sustained due to the negligence of another.

Intentional Acts

The most common type of intentional act is assault and battery. Since intentional acts frequently occur due to the evil intent or disturbing behavior of another, those injured may recover additional compensation that is referred to as Punitive Damages. These damages are awarded as means to make an example out of the wrongdoer and discourage similar behaviors from others.
