Passionate Advocates for Your Rights

What is a Settlement?

When a person is seriously injured in an accident that is the result of another's' negligence, the injured individual is entitled to compensation for his or her injuries. An experienced and skilled lawyer can ensure that your rights are protected and that insurance companies don't take advantage of you. Statistically, it is more likely that a personal injury claim will be resolved in an out-of-court settlement than in court. Having to go through a civil court case can be time consuming and stressful, and most claims can be settled prior to court. When this is impossible, it is necessary to take the case to trial to recover the full compensation that you are due.

How can an attorney help me?

With over 80 years of combined experience, we are always ready to take a case to court for our clients when it is necessary. In many cases, however, we are able to reach a pre-trial agreement that is beneficial. The attorney that you choose will have a marked effect on the outcome of your case. He or she can pursue your best interests by reaching a settlement with the other party or fighting for your rights in court when your claim is not satisfied fairly through a settlement. Having your case reviewed by an attorney can help you to discover approximately what your claim is worth and what your best course of action is at this time.

Whether or not you receive the full amount of compensation that you are due will greatly affect your ability to recover and move on with your life. In many cases the injured victim will need to recover compensation not only for medical bills, but for loss of wages, future loss of wages, future medical bills, pain and suffering, and in more serious cases, loss of enjoyment of life.

Speaking with a skilled attorney from our firm is a crucial matter with regard to getting the compensation you deserve. Contact us today.
