What is My Case Worth?
Whether you have been injured in an auto accident, a slip-and-fall, a trip-and-fall or a construction accident, medical malpractice incident, etc., you may be entitled to large compensation for the injuries, damages and losses you have suffered. You may be able to receive money whether the accident was caused entirely by someone else's negligence or wrongdoing, or even if the incident was partly your fault. Our law firm has helped secure maximum amounts of money for several injured victims who have been accused by defendants of causing their own injuries. Our skilled attorneys and able negotiators help secure the enormous outcomes for you and your family.
The value of your case will usually depend on the severity of your injuries and the degree of fault on the person or company that caused your injuries. Depending on the circumstances of your case and the complexity of your injuries, you may be able to seek both economic and non-economic damages for your losses. Examples of economic damages are medical expenses, lost income and benefits and rehabilitation costs. Non-economic damages include loss of services of a spouse, past and future pain and suffering, etc. Our legal team will thoroughly review and evaluate your case in order to help bolster your claim and obtain just compensation for your losses.
Do I Need a Lawyer?
If you or a family member has been seriously injured in an accident, you will be putting yourself at a disadvantage if you choose to handle your claim without the guidance or counsel of an experienced attorney. Injury claims are quite complex and there is the opportunity to make mistakes that may jeopardize your claim. If you do not have a thorough understanding of laws and procedures, the errors you make can cost you time and money. Your claim will often be denied, resulting in long-term financial consequences for you and your family.
It is also crucial to remember that you will be dealing with insurance companies and their lawyers who are adept in keeping their payouts low. Do you think the insurance company is looking for your best interest? Their priority is about maximizing their profits. If you don't have an attorney on your side who can fight for your rights, you are likely to receive a low settlement or verdict or no settlement or verdict at all from the insurance company.
When Do I Need a Lawyer?
The best time to contact an attorney is immediately after the incident that causes your injury. The value of getting as much evidence as possible from the scene cannot be minimized. Photographs, witness testimony, physical evidence and other information, if not obtained from the scene and preserved, can be lost. These are the pieces of information that can help strengthen your case and maximize your chances of getting the most money for your losses. Our personal injury attorneys and investigators will start working for you right away. When you choose our firm to represent you, we will place more than 49 years of legal experience at your service and strive to bring you the greatest amount of money that you and your family justly deserve.
