Accidents happen all the time, and sometimes, they aren’t your fault. You are entitled to some form of compensation, which is why it’s important to know what personal injury law firms deal with. At The Adley Law Firm, we aim to bridge this gap by playing the middle man between your injury and zealous insurance adjusters.
What Are The Means For a Successful Personal Injury Claim?
A personal injury is a physical or mental injury to a person. To win a personal injury case in court, you must show that the defendant negligently (recklessly) failed to keep an obligation not to harm you and that failure caused your injury and loss. For instance, if you were out driving and another driver ran a stoplight and hit your car, sending you to the hospital with a broken leg, you would have a personal injury case. You could show that he was negligent (careless, reckless) in running the stoplight and that negligence broke the obligation he owed you to keep a “proper lookout” and stop for a red light. You could also show that you were injured (broken leg) and suffered loss (medical bills and possible time off work, etc.).
What Kinds of Cases Do You Handle?
The Adley Law Firm has handled a wide variety of personal injury cases over the last two decades, including:
- Motorcycle accidents
- Car accidents
- Trucking accidents
- Boating accidents
- Work Injuries
- Medical malpractice
- Wrongful death suits
- Defective and dangerous products
- Big rig or 18 wheeler accidents
- Catastrophic injuries
Although 90% of all our personal injury cases are settled out of court, we are prepared for trial even at the settlement phase of your claim. We find that defendants are much more willing to meet our demands when they see what we have prepared for them should we go to court. If your case does proceed to trial, we will be well prepared for that as well. We have our own in-house trial prep team and the latest graphics and technology available to enable our attorneys to present your case as clearly and convincingly as possible.
We also have significant financial resources and relationships with credible experts, including doctors, engineers, investigators, inspectors, life planners, psychologists, and vocational experts, to allow us to gather and preserve all necessary evidence and win you the recovery you need for losses like:
- Lost wages
- Medical costs
- Pain & suffering (physical, mental & emotional)
- Funeral and burial costs
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of household services
- Loss of future wages
- Future medical costs
In many cases, the person responsible doesn’t want to take responsibility for the accident and may refuse to pay for medical bills and pain and suffering caused by the injured party. This is where the law firm would step in and handle the case.
What Can I Recover For My Injuries?
The money awarded for these kinds of losses is called Damages.
There are two kinds of damages in a personal injury case:
- Compensatory (Money/Pecuniary)
- Punitive (Money/Exemplary)
Compensatory damages can be special or general. Special Damages are for tangible, economic losses like medical bills and lost income that is easily quantified.
General Damages are not as easy to calculate. They are for intangible, non-economic things like a disabled person’s ability to work in the future or what medical care will be needed over a lifetime for a progressive traumatic brain injury. Our experience and expert contacts allow us to measure these general damages and get you the maximum recovery.
Punitive Damages are rarer and are awarded to punish the defendant and send a public message about his behavior. We will seek these as well.
Statute of Limitations
The Statute of Limitations for filing most personal injury suits is one to two years from the time of the accident, so don’t hesitate to call us toll-free and let us put our experience to work for you. We give each case the same diligent effort and attention. We offer a free initial consultation and have a 24-hour emergency response team, and our attorneys are available to their clients night and day for any questions and concerns.
We only get paid if we win your case, so call today if you’ve suffered a personal injury, and let’s get started.
Personal Injury Lawyers Are Necessary
It can be a very distressing time when you or anyone has been hurt, especially when it wasn’t your fault. The first thing you should do when you check yourself out of the hospital would be to call and speak to an attorney. Personal injury attorneys work to get the compensation you are entitled to. It doesn’t matter if you were the victim of a minor traffic collision or something much more serious; you may still be entitled to some form of compensation, even if it’s to cover your out-of-pocket expenses or medical bills. Please make an appointment or speak to the attorney over the telephone and explain the accident and how you don’t believe it was your fault. Within a few seconds, the attorney will know whether you have a claim or not and will be able to tell you whether they can take your case.
