Operating as usual
[01/23/14] In virtually all cases, it's worthwhile to bring us aboard to ensure you are fully compensated. Do you know how to present claims for lost wages and pain and suffering? Generally speaking, you only have one chance to receive a fair settlement in a personal injury case.
[01/21/14] While criminal cases go before a jury, civil cases - like personal injury lawsuits - can utilize either a judge or jury trial. Regardless of who renders the decision, you're still entitled to the same level of damages if you win.
[01/16/14] There's a legal principal called the doctrine of contributory negligence that basically means you cannot receive compensation after an injury if you did something to cause it. When we discuss your case, it's important we discuss any contributory actions you may have taken.
[01/14/14] One important tip after a personal injury is to always answer any questions asked by police or doctors as honestly as possible. The truth is easy to defend. But different answers to questions about what happened and how you feel can make it look like you are not honest and perhaps exaggerating your injuries.
[01/09/14] Did you know that negotiating with an insurance company before consulting an attorney can actually hurt your case? We will give you sound advice as to what information should be disclosed and when.
[01/07/14] In personal injury claims, liability must be established in order to recover damages. This is defined as that person's legal and financial obligation owed as a result of an accident causing serious personal injury.
[01/02/14] Remember, you don't have to be the injured party in a personal injury case to need the services of a lawyer. If someone is suing you, we may be able to help you prove you did nothing wrong.
[12/31/13] When you're filing a personal injury lawsuit, it's important to keep track of all your related expenses. If you win, you may be able to receive reimbursement for things like the mileage to get to your doctor or therapy appointments.
[12/26/13] If you have a strong personal injury case, the likelihood is that there will not be a trial. We are skilled at negotiating the best possible settlement for your personal injury case.
[12/24/13] After a personal injury, it's not uncommon for the insurer representing the person responsible for your injuries to want to interview you regarding the accident either in person or on the phone. You don't have to agree to this interview. In some cases, any misstatement you make may be used against you.
[12/19/13] The possibility of being the center of a personal injury case may be greater than you think. In 2009, there were about 5.5 million auto wrecks in the country that resulted in 2.2 million injuries, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
[12/17/13] Did you know that product liability is one of the most common types of personal injury lawsuits in the country? These occur when a product on the market causes physical, emotional or psychological harm to a person.
[12/12/13] Some defective products that have recently been involved in litigation have been tires, brakes, helmets, farm equipment, airbags, restraint systems, like seat belts and car seats, and Teflon. People who have used those products have received settlements for the harm they've caused.
[12/10/13] There are a number of actions to avoid if you've just been injured and you think someone else is responsible. Don't announce that you aren't injured or that you feel fine. It's not uncommon for even significant injuries to take a day or several days before to become obvious.
[12/05/13] Remember, personal injury cases are civil matters that are tried in civil courts. When suing for personal injury damages, you can often sue for future damages in addition to current damages.
[12/03/13] Brain injuries can be caused by several factors, not just head injuries. Some of the things that cause brain injuries are drug use, a blow to the head, electric shocks, heart attack, stroke and inadequate oxygen supply.
[11/28/13] There's a common belief that personal injury attorneys are "ambulance chasers," or only out for ourselves. We're not just here to make a buck; we're here to help you out after an injury keeps you from making a buck.
[11/26/13] Remember, time isn't always on your side after an accident or injury. Depending on where you live, you may only have a matter of months before the statute of limitations runs out and you can no longer file your personal injury lawsuit.
[11/21/13] Immediately following an accident, it's important that you wait for the police to arrive and discuss the details only with the police, your insurance agent, and your attorney. This can significantly help your case later on.
[11/19/13] Did you know that personal injury attorneys can help you settle your car accident claim by as much as 50 percent higher than you can achieve on your own?
[11/14/13] Have you ever wondered if your dog's aggressive nature could be a problem for you? Remember, if your dog bites someone, you could be at the receiving end of a personal injury lawsuit.
[11/12/13] When you get a severe burn injury, you should always go to a medical professional first, especially if the burn injury is bad enough to potentially be fatal. After seeing a medical professional, come to us to handle your legal case.
[11/07/13] After a physical altercation, determining who was at fault may not be a straightforward task. If you were simply defending yourself and sustained substantial injuries, we may be able to help you get the financial compensation you deserve.
[11/05/13] When it comes to personal injury claims, you as the victim are responsible for proving liability. This will involve establishing how the accident occurred and who was at fault.
[10/31/13] There are a lot of symptoms that can help you tell if you have a brain injury, which can be difficult to tell because it doesn't show on the outside. The symptoms include dizziness, headaches, amnesia, mood changes and impaired thinking.
[10/29/13] Back injuries can cause a huge negative impact on your life. They involve lengthy therapy, discomfort, paralysis and even extreme pain, so we can even get you a settlement for pain and suffering in some cases.
[10/24/13] Back injuries can feel different for everyone and have different symptoms. Some of those symptoms are sharp pain, difficulty doing normal, everyday tasks, a persistent soreness in the back and sometimes even a partial or total paralysis.
[10/22/13] If a police officer asks if you want to be taken to the hospital, it's always smart to say yes. Adrenaline created by the frantic aftermath of an accident can mask pain, and it's never a good thing to have a police report conclude you were not injured because you did not seek medical attention.
[10/17/13] Body and limb injuries can impair your ability to work because they can often hamper your ability to lift things or move around well. They can also cause a lot of pain and suffering, which can help us get you a good settlement.
[10/15/13] Workers who get back injuries can often have strong legal cases because they can be so debilitating they keep you from working ever again. Back injury victims should see doctors right away and stay off their feet.
[10/10/13] If you have been seriously injured in an accident, it's imperative that you consult with an attorney before trying to negotiate a settlement, as it will be difficult to recover the full amount you are owed.
[10/08/13] When you're trying to determine whether you should file a personal injury lawsuit, it's important to consider anything you did that may have contributed to the injury. The other party may use this information as a reason to fight your claim.
[10/03/13] Defective products cause harm daily, and the products causing the harm include those that don't perform correctly, those that cause health risks to users and those that harm the environment. If you've been harmed by defective products, we can help.
[10/01/13] There are several steps we will undertake following your accident to build your case. This includes interviewing witnesses, gathering physical evidence, taking photographs, and hiring experts and investigators as needed.
[09/26/13] After an accident, be sure to disclose any and all symptoms to your healthcare provider. This can prove critical later on, as your doctor's records and reports are used extensively in most claim evaluations.
