What is “Personal Injury”
Personal Injury includes civil wrongs and economic or non-economic damages to a person, or their property, reputation, or rights. Usually, this involves injury or loss of life due to the negligence of another person or company. We represent those who are injured and the families of those who lose a loved one in a fatal accident. There is no cost out of pocket as we work on a contingency fee basis.
What is the First Thing You Need to Do?
Seek medical attention within 24 to 48 hours. Even if you feel ok, it is important to immediately go to the emergency room, urgent care or your own physician within 24 to 48 hours of the accident. Many injuries from car, truck and motorcycle accidents take weeks or even months to fully present in terms of pain or limitation of motion. If you do not seek medical attention in the 48 hours after your accident you may never be able to recover for what has happened to you.
I can’t tell you how many times over 40 years we’ve had to tell someone with serious injuries who should have recovered tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars that they have no claim. Even if you feel ok and think you simply suffered bumps and bruises, please go see a doctor.
