MOTOR VEHICLE COLLISIONS
Motor vehicle accidents are incredibly disruptive to daily life. They are made worse by the insurance companies calling all the time, having to make recorded statements, signing forms and somewhere in between it all finding time to get treated for your injuries. We can help with this. Once you have been in an accident, you are at odds with the interests of the insurance company, sometimes even your own. An attorney represents you by taking the phone calls on your behalf, gathering all of the bills and the documentation that you need for the settlement and making sure that you don’t sign requests that may limit your ability to get care or a settlement. It is not uncommon for an insurance company to play dirty rotten tricks like asking you to release your life history of medical files so they can try and say that your injuries were pre-existing. When you retain a lawyer to represent you as the not-at-fault party in a motor vehicle accident, we can handle most of these details for you. We will gather all of the necessary documentation and bills as well as review all information requests to make sure they aren’t trying to pull a fast one. We also walk you through any recorded statements that you may need to make and if necessary, we will represent you in court to make sure that you are fairly compensated for your loss. We will fight hard to get your car repaired or replaced, your medical expenses paid for, your lost wages reimbursed and your pain and suffering compensated.
We all know that slips and falls happen, but when you are injured because of an accident caused by either unsafe conditions or negligence on the part of the business or property owner, you shouldn’t have to pay the medical bill.
Premises liability is the liability insurance that most businesses and property owners carry in case something like this happens. Some common examples of premises liability cases include:
- Slip and falls and trip and falls
- Falling merchandise in stores
- Elevator and escalator accidents
- Swimming pool and amusement park accidents
- Attacks by third parties
In the event that the liable party refuses to take responsibility for the negligent or dangerous conditions, an attorney can represent you and help recover your medical expenses and some compensation for your pain and suffering.
