Injury and Wrongful Death
you are having difficulty dealing with an insurance company
regarding your claim and feel that you are not being offered
reasonable compensation for your injuries, please contact
us to discuss your rights. When we represent you in
a personal injury lawsuit, we understand that the outcome
of your case will have a significant impact upon your life.
We prepare every personal injury case as if it will go to
trial which maximizes your recovery. In a personal injury
action, the damages recoverable include your medical expenses,
future medical expenses, pain and suffering and future pain
and suffering, loss of wages, and future loss of wages, loss
of earning capacity, permanent impairment, and in some cases
your spouse may have a claim for loss of consortium or services.
Occasionally, the defendant’s conduct will be so reckless
and wanton that you may have a claim for punitive damages
to punish the defendant and deter that conduct in the future.
Once the case is concluded by trial or settlement, you cannot
seek additional amounts in the future for the same claim.
Generally, personal injury claims must be brought within one
(1) year of the date that the accident occurred or the claim
arose. However, there are exceptions to this rule and
you should contact an attorney immediately for advice concerning
the time period for filing your claim. In addition,
the longer you wait to file your claim may result in the loss
of evidence and witnesses which could greatly affect your
chance of recovery. The information in this paragraph
is provided as a professional courtesy and does not constitute
legal advise since our office does not represent you.
