Personal Injury

Today we live in a society where you may be injured no matter what precautions you take.  Automobile accidents, slip-and-falls, dog bites, malfunctions, skiing accidents, you name it, the modern world can incapacitate you. 
 

Injuries may be temporary or permanent, painful and debilitating and may result in scarring and disfigurement.  These types of injuries may change your life altogether.  The consequences often include loss of earnings, wages, lost opportunities, and many other kinds of economic injury.  If you are injured, you need prompt medical attention from good doctors. Seek medical treatment as soon as possible to limit your pain, as well as to document your injuries.

You also need prompt legal representation.  Call Brian or Louis Dell for immediate legal assistance.

The truth about insurance companies.

Insurance companies will pay next to nothing to settle your case. The insurance company knows it will have to pay more if you contact a lawyer. The friendly adjuster will be nice when they first contact you about your case, but the aim is to pay you the lowest possible amount no matter how serious your injury, lost income, pain and suffering, and permanent disability.  Only by aggressively fighting the insurance companies and their battery of lawyers will you get fair and reasonable compensation for your injuries.  Call one of us or email us about your case. We will respond immediately.

What should I do if I am injured in an accident?

First, pay attention to your medical needs. If someone was with you and they were not also injured or do not need to care for you, ask them to get names of witnesses to the accident or identify what caused you to fall.

What doctor should I see?

A serious injury means you should go to the emergency room. For some injuries, the pain does not start until the next day. Go see you family physician. If you need specialized care, your doctor will send you to a specialist.

Should I talk to the insurance adjuster?

The adjuster will ask you questions much the way a police officer questions a suspect. Without legal representation, you risk having your statements taken out of context and later used against you to minimize your injuries.  When you are injured by the negligence of another, you will only have one opportunity to recover fair and reasonable compensation for your injuries.  When it comes to insurance company adjusters, you are the amateur going up against the professional.  Therefore, you will be better off financially to have an experienced attorney handle your claim.

What kind of records should I keep?

Keep all your medical bills and receipts, for all treatment and medications, including over-the-counter items. Many injuries cause pain for a long time. Sometimes the pain comes and goes. We always want to act strong and minimize our injuries by forgetting, but the pain is real. Therefore, you may want to keep a little diary to help remind you of all of the days you suffered.  If someone has to help you or do things for you that you used to do yourself, they may want to keep a little diary, too.

How will I be able to afford legal representation?

If a lawyer accepts your case, legal fees and costs will come out of the final settlement or jury award. You and your lawyer will sign a contract that will explain the details.

What can I expect as my case moves toward trial?

Once your suit has been filed, the lawyers for the insurance company will send written questions for you to answer and ask for your bills. They will also ask for you to sign a release of your medical information, to see if you have injured the same parts of your body before. They will request that you see a doctor of their choosing, to assess your injuries. Your deposition will also be taken, where you will appear with your lawyer before a court reporter and be asked questions about your injuries and how you were hurt. Finally, if necessary, your case will be presented to a jury. Before each of these happens, you and your lawyer will consult and prepare. Instead of flying blind, you and your lawyer will prepare each step so that if a settlement cannot be reached, the jury will hear your case in the best possible light and be able to award you full, fair and reasonable compensation for your injuries.
