Although mishaps are quite common, it does not lessen the amount of pain and confusion that many people feel following an accident, and/or after sustaining some kind of injury. Individuals who have suffered a severe trauma (spinal cord injury or catastrophic brain injury, etc.) typically have a long recovery period. Furthermore, their medical expenses can be astronomical.
If the injuries sustained were caused by the negligence of another, it may be beneficial to hire an attorney who has experience with personal injury cases. Your lawyer will help you file a legal claim against the negligent party.
While insurance companies frequently offer settlements to individuals who have been injured, these settlements rarely include future expenses related to the injury sustained.
These future expenses may include:
- Home health care
- Long-term care costs
- Nursing care
- Home modifications
- Lost wages
As your attorneys, we will conduct a pre-lawsuit investigation. It is through this investigation that we will gather evidence to build your case. We will also become aware of any unfavorable evidence (previous injuries, etc.). In addition, we will speak to witnesses, develop your case theory and determine the value of any potential claim.
