Common Personal Injury Cases We Handle
Our law firm commonly hears from clients who have suffered a:
- Injuries that require surgery to the knees, back, or neck
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord injury
- Burn injury
- Permanent disfiguration
- Organ damage
What accidents are causing these catastrophic injuries? While there are countless ways that an accident can occur, some of the worst and most common causes are motor vehicle accidents. Thousands of Americans lose their lives in car crashes each year, and many, many more suffer life-changing injuries. We aim to provide representation and legal guidance to as many people throughout our communities as possible.
How Is Liability Determined in a Personal Injury Claim?
Most states require you to prove you were not liable for your injuries to demand compensation from a negligent party. At the least, you must prove that the defendant was more liable than you were. This system is called comparative negligence and is the foundation of most personal injury claim work.
We can analyze available evidence to determine your liability, such as the photographs you took at the accident scene. The goal is to reduce your liability to 0% so we can demand 100% of all damages from the defendant.
We can call upon our vast network of expert witnesses to further strengthen your claim and shrink your liability. For example, accident reconstructionists are a must-know for complex car accident claims that resulted in a life-changing injury or death.
What Damages Can You Claim in a Personal Injury Case?
We want to secure the full amount of damages for you, which may include:
- Medical treatments: Your medical treatments for a severe injury can be staggering, especially if you need extensive hospitalization and surgeries.
- Rehabilitative therapies: Living with a severe injury can be difficult, but lifelong rehabilitative therapies may alleviate the worst symptoms.
- Lost wages: If you lost wages and income capacity due to missing work or a lasting injury, then your claim can demand those finances from the liable party.
- Pain and suffering: The emotional trauma you have suffered during and after an accident can be considered when evaluating fair damages to be paid to you.
- Life-care plan: To recover future lost earnings and future extensive medical bills.
By way of example, we are representing three victims of the Las Vegas mass shooting in which serious bodily injury resulted in a life-long impact. In those cases, we retained a life-care specialist who worked on the 9/11 case to prepare detailed charts of future damages through the lifetime of these three victims.
Further damages could become available in a wrongful death claim, depending on where you live. Many states, for example, allow plaintiffs to file for damages related to funeral arrangements, wages the deceased would have likely earned in life, and grief experienced by surviving family members.
