Arguably So
What would you do if you were injured in an accident in which the other party was clearly at fault, yet his or her insurance company said the accident was not covered by their client’s policy? When an impasse of this type is reached, it is time to engage the services of an attorney who will conduct a careful reading of a copy of the insurance policy in question. Most insurance policy provisions can be interpreted in several different ways, and the courts usually interpret them so that injured people are covered. If the defendant’s insurance company continues to deny coverage, an experienced personal injury lawyer should compel the insurance company to provide the coverage it was paid to provide. If you’ve been hurt and an insurance company is denying you the compensation that you deserve, then you need to call our law office today.

Noting the Details!
Anyone who endures the pain or other physical problems as the consequence of an accident should keep track of his or her symptoms in a daily journal. Because pain, discomfort, anxiety, loss of sleep, etc. are the basis upon which any compensation will be determined, it is necessary to be as specific as possible. Those accident victims who fail to make immediate note of their problems run the risk of relying upon faculty memories to create inaccurate recollections. As a result, important details may not be included in a demand for settlement that may take place weeks or months after the initial incident. Keeping an injury journal also prevents seemingly inconsequential items from being forgotten. Sometimes, a mere bump or twist can lead to the understanding of a major problem later on.

You may not think to keep track of all of these small things, but a good lawyer knows that the devil is in the details. Our attorneys have long and successful experience handling a wide variety of personal injury cases, including car accidents, slip-and-fall cases, and medical malpractice. Call today for a free consultation to discuss the merits of your case.

The Way You Were!
If you are injured as the result of another person’s negligence, you probably wish that things were back to the way they were before you were injured. In essence, that is the law’s prescription. It requires that the plaintiff be restored to his or her pre-injury condition.

Both economic (out-of-pocket) and non-economic (loss of physical and mental well-being) losses are restored through monetary compensation. The term “general damages” refers to non-economic losses such as “pain and suffering.” The valuation of such loss is left largely to a jury’s discretion. “Special damages” are those awarded for such compensable harms as medical expenses and lost wages. These can easily be quantified with the help of bills, pay stubs, etc.

Can I Expect Your Case to Go to Trial!?
Many people with legitimate legal grievances do not pursue them because they are afraid of the monetary and emotional toll that a trial may take. Others fear unpredictable jury verdicts.

This is very unfortunate, seeing as the vast majority of civil cases do not even get to court. According to a recent American Bar Association study, the number of courtroom trials has decreased from 11.5 percent of all federal civil cases in 1962 to 1.8 percent in 2002. The decreasing percentage of civil cases that actually see the light of the courtroom is largely due to a preference for resolution through settlements, mediation, and arbitration. In most cases, it costs nothing to discuss your case with a lawyer.
