Serious injuries often occur due to the actions or carelessness of others. In such cases, a personal injury lawyer can help victims get their lives back together or adjust to the challenges they face in a new lifestyle without worrying about the financial issues a serious injury can cause. The person or persons responsible for your pain and suffering must be held accountable, and the experienced personal injury attorneys from the Mike Slocumb Law Firm can help you secure the maximum compensation you deserve.
A personal injury can result from any situation in which an individual is hurt due to the actions or negligence of an individual, group, or company. Some common causes include:
If you have experienced injury for one of these reasons you may think that dealing directly with an insurance company will ensure you receive the level of compensation you deserve. You might even believe that you have no need for legal representation to get fair treatment. Nothing could be further from the truth. Instead, an insurance company will take advantage of you in every way possible. For instance, by casting doubt on the seriousness of your injuries and making you a settlement offer that is nowhere near the amount you deserve given your physical and emotional state and financial losses. In addition, an insurer will try to downplay the so-called “non-economic” damages you’ve suffered in your personal injury case, which include pain and suffering as well as other intangible costs for which it’s hard to give a dollar value.
