Personal Injuries

Personal Injury is any physical injury resulting from vehicle accidents, dog bites, sickness, disease, or death sustained by any person and caused by an occurrence for which another party may be held liable. A personal injury accident can leave you with medical bills, lost wages, damages to your person or vehicle, and a feeling of hopelessness. You are the victim of another person’s negligence. You have the right to seek compensation for your damages.

Don‘t Sign Away Your Rights

If you have suffered an injury, chances are that an insurance company is attempting to contact you to obtain a statement and potentially negotiate a settlement with you. You need to know that the insurance company does not work for you, and is only interested in limiting its liability. It hires adjusters, investigators, and attorneys to make certain that they pay the least amount possible.

You should not deal with an insurance company and their trained professionals in a personal injury matter without the advice of an experienced personal injury attorney. The insurance company will try to obtain a statement from you regarding the incident before you know all the facts or the extent of your injuries. Signing a settlement too soon can prevent you from obtaining future damages if your condition worsens or new symptoms and problems develop. In addition, if you sign what is called a general release, it releases not only the party with whom you are settling with but also all persons who may be liable for your injuries, known or unknown.
