Personal Injury Lawyer


Accidents cause much more than physical pain. Looming medical bills, loss of mobility, and stress about an unclear future are just some of the additional problems that follow when someone negligently causes an accident. And when someone’s negligence leads to an accident and injury, you have the right to fight for compensation.

However, most people are in no condition after their accident to take on an insurance company or unhelpful party in court. When accidents occur, you need to rely on experienced legal counsel to focus on the fight while you focus on recovery.

Unsure what accidents are considered valid personal injury claims? Talking to an attorney is the best way to know for sure, but common types of personal injuries stem from the following situations:

Auto Accidents

Wrongful Deaths

Slip and Falls

Defective Products

Neglect/Abuse in Nursing Homes

Pedestrian Accidents

Motorcycle Accidents

Medical/Prescription Errors

Dog Bites

Bicycle Accidents

Common Injuries In Personal Injury Lawsuits

No injury – no matter the severity – should be ignored. Relatively minor aches and pains can balloon into larger issues if left unaddressed, eventually leaving you footing the bill. Additionally, ignoring an injury or purposefully forgoing treatment options might limit your ability to file a claim in the future. Immediately following an accident, contact medical professionals and a personal injury attorney, especially if you suffer from any of the following:


Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)

Fractures, Sprains, or Broken Bones

Cuts, Bruises, or Lacerations

Nerve Damage, Whiplash, Spinal Injuries, or Loss of Limb Usage


Our experienced personal injury attorneys will never settle for less than you deserve based on your injuries.

Potential Compensation For Your Injury

Depending on your accident, you may be entitled to compensation for the following reasons:

Medical bills, including ongoing medical costs in the future

Lost wages and the loss of future earning potential

Pain and suffering, both mental and physical

Car repair or replacement

Punitive damages imposed on the negligent party

Importance of A Personal Injury Attorney

Attempting to negotiate a fair settlement with an insurance company is nearly impossible to do on your own. Not only do they know you are likely in pain, but they will exploit the fact that you don’t know the true value of your case and lowball you with an insultingly low settlement offer.

Going to court is a headache for both parties, and a fair settlement is often in the best interest of both sides. Hiring an experienced attorney will immediately let the insurance company know that you mean business and won’t settle for less than your injury is worth. Additionally, it allows you to focus on the crucial recovery process.
