Unfortunately for us all, bodily injury can come in many forms, and from many causes. I've seen them all. Where the cause of the injury is the fault -whether intentional or careless- of another person, the law gives the victim the right to recover for their injuries, and the consequences of those injuries. I've spent my career recovering compensation for those hurt, through no fault of their own, by the wrongful acts of others.
Have you been injured because of someone else's negligence?
Accidents happen every day. Sometimes accidents are caused by things outside the control of any person- an act of God or a natural disaster.
Often, however, what many may call "accidents" are caused by the failure of one person to exercise the appropriate level of caution for the safety of others.
When someone fails to act sensibly, and engages in conduct that creates a risk of harm, the law calls this negligence. When that failure to use due care results in injury to another person, the law recognizes the victim's right to recover damages, or monetary compensation. Damages are based on the losses sustained by the victim. Medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and out-of-pocket expenses for car rentals or pharmacy charges are recoverable. The law also recognizes a victim's right to recover what some call non-economic damages for "pain and suffering."
I've recovered millions of dollars for people injured by the negligence of others.
Putting a dollar value on the specific ways that an injury has lessened the quality of someone's life is not necessarily an easy calculation to make, and not an easy end to achieve. Many victims of negligence choose to employ experienced legal counsel to guide them through the often lengthy, frustrating and confusing process of recovering money for their injuries. From the identification of a viable claim, to negotiation with huge insurance companies, to presenting that claim to a court or jury, victims need the guidance of an effective advocate to prosecute their claims. I am that advocate.
