Personal Injury Law

Helping the Injured and Their Families Since 1972

There was a time when laws did not support injured parties’ claims to compensation following an accident no matter how egregious the negligent party acted. Now the law recognizes that injured parties likely have valid claim for damages if:

  • There was a “legal duty” between the allegedly negligent party and the injured person
  • The duty was breached
  • The negligent party caused the injury
  • Damages resulted from the breach

For example, a worker has a valid claim if his employer failed in their duty to provide a safe work environment and the worker is injured on the job. A bicyclist has a valid claim if he or she is struck and injured by a motorist who failed in his or her duty to drive safely.

Once the injured party establishes the right to pursue a claim, challenges persist. For instance:

  • Persuasive evidence must be gathered
  • The extent of injuries must be proved (in order receive compensation for all injuries)
  • Negotiating with insurers to settle out of court (to avoid the risk and expense of litigation)
  • If the insurer refuses to make a fair offer a thoroughly prepared case must be presented in the courtroom
