Some slip and fall cases, for example, can become extraordinarily complex over the liability issue. Did the injured party have some part in the accident? If so, how is liability apportioned? Those are the tort issues; thereafter the case becomes a matter of insurance law over who will make payment. Our office views personal injury law as a field with many specialties, each of which in turn requires the relevant legal expertise. Personal injury law requires more than a chart with a list of injuries and a set of dollar figures attached. On the other hand, it's not something that should remain a mystery to the client.
We will explain your legal options to you in a clear and concise manner. We will discuss legal options, potential consequences, and expectations with you. It's important to us that our clients understand both the legal realities and the possibilities attached to their case.
When it will improve the case, we use specialists to help us develop a body of evidence that will present your claim in the best possible manner. Many times, preparation is the difference between an acceptable settlement and an excellent settlement.
A personal injury case can have complex, long term medical, psychological and financial impact on a person's life. It's our job to develop a complete scenario for the personal cost of your injury and see that you and your family are compensated for it. A lot of insurance companies — and a lot of PI attorneys — feel that personal injury settlements are a set of mechanical calculations. We feel that the "personal" element in personal injury is a critical component of case management.
