Personal Injury Compensation

The legal definition of the word “negligence” is the violation of a duty of care owed which proximately causes damages. If a person is found to be negligent, then this person is legally responsible (liable) for a number of different types of damages, and can be made to pay fair compensation for these damages. Such damages include:

  • Medical expenses, past and future
  • Pain and suffering, past and future
  • Lost wages, past and future
  • Traumatic brain injury, herniated discs, scarring, physical disfigurement, nerve damage/paralysis, permanent disability, wrongful death
  • Broken bones, burns, sprains, soft tissue, and all other injuries proximately caused by the accident
  • All property damage
  • Loss of consortium and support
  • Serious emotional distress
  • Rental costs
  • Other miscellaneous costs and expenses

Most all insurance companies will not compensate a claimant fully and fairly unless all of the damages are properly documented and supported with expert opinions and legal precedent. It is our job as your legal counsel to build a strong and persuasive case on your behalf.  The insurance company often will settle your claim at that point based upon the strength of this evidence.  If the insurer still persists in unreasonably denying or diminishing your claim, we will recommend to you that we file suit. The issue of whether or not to go into litigation, however, is always ultimately your decision. If we do file suit, we will use the legal system to force the insurer to act responsibly and compensate you fairly.  Equitable compensation is the goal of every personal injury case.
