Personal Injury Overview

Personal injury and wrongful death cases can be very difficult. Also, the more severe the injury is, the longer it will take for a case to be handled. This makes sense.

When someone is injured slightly and not much money is involved in a settlement, the insurance company or the person responsible for the damages is more likely to offer up a settlement and settle the case.

In cases with more severe injuries, insurance companies and persons responsible for the damages are more willing to spend money on attorneys in order to try to defend any claim against having to pay for the damages caused.

That said, the injured person is always left in a position where they have to decide whether or not they want to accept a quick settlement check for a small sum of money, or fully treat for their injuries and wait until they have reached their maximum medical recovery in order to find out what their case is actually worth. Thereafter, it takes even longer to go through the legal process of trying to obtain a fair settlement that is based on the actual severity of damages.

Of course, in order to find out exactly what your injury case involves, you would have to come in for a free consultation and provide specific facts about your particular case. Cases can vary widely based upon different facts or circumstances, and different laws that may affect different types of injuries.

Therefore, you must set up a consultation as quickly as possible after the accident - this means within hours, not days. Often events take place within the first several hours and days after an accident that can make a difference regarding whether or not the client will recover any money whatsoever, or can substantially reduce the amount of an award that a client may receive.

IF YOU HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT YOU NEED REPRESENTATION IMMEDIATELY TO PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS.

DO NOT TALK TO ANYONE ABOUT YOUR CASE UNTIL YOU HAVE SPOKEN TO AN ATTORNEY FIRST!

THERE IS NO FEE CHARGED IN ACCIDENT CASES UNLESS YOU COLLECT AND CONSULTATIONS ARE FREE -- SO CALL AT ONCE FOR A FREE CONSULTATION AND TO PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS.
