Obtain a Medical Diagnosis of Your Injuries

The first thing to do after a car accident or slip and fall accident is to seek full and proper medical attention, even if you have not yet manifested symptoms of injury. While if you sustained broken bones, lacerations or catastrophic injuries you may already have been taken to the hospital, other injuries such as soft tissue damage and even traumatic brain injuries may go unnoticed for days after the accident. Securing a medical diagnosis of your injury and a prognosis for your recovery is crucial in establishing the severity of the impact the accident has had on your life and in proving the full scope of your claim.

Let an Attorney Uncover Evidence

An attorney from our firm will work closely with you to assemble the necessary evidence for your case, including medical records and witness testimony, as well as any other documentation of the financial losses you have sustained. Based on this evidence, we will help you calculate how much your claim is worth, to arrive at a figure to demand from the insurance company.

Under state law, you are entitled to claim economic damages including your past and future medical expenses, as well as compensation for lost wages and reduced future earning capacity. You can additionally claim noneconomic damages for your pain and suffering, physical impairment and disfigurement, mental anguish and loss of capacity to enjoy life. If the other person caused the accident, you should not be forced to pay the price.

File Your Insurance Claim

We will next submit your claim to the insurance company, and will represent you with the adjuster and claims representative assigned to your case. At this stage in the process, the goal is to secure a settlement out of court through negotiations and by pressuring the insurance company to pay you the amount you deserve. Fortunately for you, we prepare every case we represent for trial, so if the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement we will not hesitate to take your case to court. If this happens, we will have the opportunity to introduce all the evidence we have gathered, as well as witness testimony and perhaps even expert testimony to support your claim.

Whether the case is settled before a trial or if we have to resort to litigation, we will treat your case as your own and will fight aggressively to defend your rights. Begin the process now by contacting us for help!
