Experienced and Aggressive Personal Injury Attorneys

We aggressively pursue full and fair compensation for our clients, and we never encourage them to accept unfair settlement offers just to avoid a trial. We offer free consultations and will provide you with a straightforward case analysis and evaluation.
Personal Injury Compensation
Our clients often ask us how much their personal injury claims are worth. All claims are different, and there is no way to place a value on your claim until we know more about your accident and resulting injuries. Typically, your compensation is based on the severity of your injuries and how those injuries have impacted you emotionally, physically, and financially.
Economic damages are the losses that you have sustained that have an actual monetary value. Medical care, such as ambulance bills, travel expenses to and from doctor’s appointments, and hospital bills, are recoverable economic damages. Lost income and property damage are other examples of economic damages.
Noneconomic damages are more difficult to calculate because they do not have an assigned monetary value. These damages are frequently referred to as pain and suffering compensation. In general, pain and suffering can include many different types of damages, such as mental anguish, disability and disfigurement, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder. In some cases, punitive damages may be awarded as well.
Proving Your Claim
To succeed in a personal injury case, you must be able to demonstrate that someone’s wrongful conduct caused the accident that resulted in your injuries and damages. Most injury claims are based on a negligence theory. To prove that the defendant was negligent, your attorney will gather evidence to establish the following legal elements:
- Duty of care: The defendant owed you a duty of care. In general, people have a duty to act in a reasonable manner to avoid preventable accidents. For example, if you were injured on someone else’s property, you would argue that they had a duty to keep their premises free from dangerous conditions that could harm visitors and guests.
- Breach of duty: The defendant breached that duty of care. You will provide evidence to show that the defendant’s conduct was unreasonable, resulting in a breach of his or her duty of care.
- Injuries: You suffered injuries and damages. It is necessary to prove that not only did the defendant breach a duty of care, but also that you suffered actual losses. Examples of losses include physical injuries, medical bills, and lost wages.
- Causation: The defendant’s breach caused your injuries and damages. In other words, but for the defendant’s unreasonable conduct, you would not have been injured.
Preparing Your Case for Trial
As soon as we take on a new personal injury claim, we begin preparing the case for trial. Although we do settle many of our injury claims, there are several reasons that it is important to ensure that your case is trial-ready. Your case may be resolved at any point during the legal process. Some cases settle before a claim is even filed, while other claims do not settle until the day before trial.
When your case is fully prepared for litigation, you will not feel pressure to accept a settlement that does not adequately compensate you for your losses. When preparing your case, our attorneys conduct thorough investigations. We gather important evidence that we know about, such as medical records and accident reports.
