Personal injuries can range from slipping and falling to a preventable motor vehicle accident. Our personal injury lawyers ensure our clients make an informed decision when it comes to accepting or denying a settlement. Our team of personal injury lawyers builds strong cases that are prepared to go to court in order to achieve the justice our clients deserve.
A personal injury case is one in which a person obviously has been injured, harmed, or damaged. That could be anything from a motor vehicle collision to someone slipping and falling on snow or ice to any other type of situation where a person is harmed and damaged.
Well, a lot of times you'll have automobile cases, which we handle, where someone might be rear-ended and they have neck pain, back pain, but they're still able to function to some level. There are times, unfortunately, where someone may be injured in a motor vehicle accident, for example, where the driver who inflicted the damage only has minimal amount of insurance. And that's very unfortunate, but it's an unfortunate reality nonetheless. There are other cases where there is substantial insurance coverage, and that's when our experience comes into play as a counselor to explain and counsel the clients the pros and cons, the risks and benefits of whether we should or shouldn't consider accepting a settlement.
Ultimately, it's the client's decision. But it's our role and obligation to make sure that the client is in a position to make an informed decision as to whether or not to accept a settlement. The majority of our cases get settled, but we will fight for our clients until and when there is fair and just money on the table, that actually gives them the ability to say, in a truthful and honest manner, justice was served and we did get a fair, reasonable, and adequate settlement.
What I tell every client, when I meet them for the first time, is that I'm very sorry to be meeting them under these very horrible circumstances, whether it's because their husband died, their child died, whether they're now in a wheelchair for the rest of their life. But ultimately, that's what I do. I deal with that every day on a daily basis. And I go to sleep knowing that when I wake up tomorrow morning, I'm going to fight another day for these people, for their families, for justice.
