How much is my claim worth?

The exact value of a claim cannot be calculated. While a number of personal injury damages have a measurable monetary value, such as medical bills and property repairs, others do not, such as pain and suffering. The only way you can be sure of recovering maximum compensation is by hiring a skilled personal injury lawyer who will not back down until fair compensation has been won. Our firm has the determination and experience to ensure that you receive the compensation that your accident deserves.

What damages can I recover in a personal injury claim?

Personal injury damages include medical bills, mileage to and from doctor visits, property repair and replacement, lost wages, emotional trauma, and much more. In essence, any physical, emotional, or financial damages that result from your accident can be recovered in a claim. Speak with lawyer from our firm to find out what your case may entail.

Who qualifies for personal injury?

Anyone who has been injured or suffered damages in an accident can file a civil claim for personal injury. As long as you can prove that someone else was responsible for your accident, that person can be required to compensate you for your damages when you file a claim and win a fair settlement or trial verdict. Adequate proof to establish liability can include witness statements, police reports, photographs, medical evaluations, and much more.

Do I have to go to court?

Many personal injury cases are settled outside of court. This is the most desirable outcome, since litigation can be stressful, time consuming, and expensive. There are some cases, however, where a trial becomes necessary in order to recover fair compensation from a reluctant party or insurance company. Our attorneys are seasoned trial lawyers and have the dedication to fight until the best results have been obtained.
