Filing a personal injury claim may feel intimidating. If you’re hurt, in pain, and unsure of what to do next, you may be wondering if you can pursue maximized injury compensation in a claim handled by a lawyer. The good news is that there’s no risk or obligation to find out. Contact our attorneys and discuss your options while getting clear, honest information you need and deserve.

You probably have a personal injury case under the following circumstances:

Someone owed you a duty of care.

A motorist owes you the duty of following the rules of the road. The management of a grocery store owes you the duty of displaying signage when the floors are wet and slippery.

The duty of care was breached.

The duty of care is breached when a motorist runs a red light, or when a property owner fails to respond in a timely manner to a dangerous condition of disrepair.

You were seriously injured.

There is no injury case without an injury, even if the duty of care was violated. Your case must demonstrate that you were injured, and that the trauma led to damages, such as:

  • Medical bills
  • Loss of income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Diminished quality of life
  • Reduced earning capacity

Our experienced attorneys can help you account for each and every way the injury has affected your life.
