As a personal injury attorney, I specialize in helping clients who have suffered personal injuries.

But what, exactly, is a personal injury?

Defining Personal Injury

A personal injury is caused by any type of trauma as a result of an accident. Injuries are the result of negligence, recklessness, or the malicious intent of another person. You may have been involved in an accident as a driver, passenger, bicyclist, motorcyclist, or pedestrian when the injury was incurred. Regardless of what part you played in the accident, if you were a victim, you may be entitled to compensation for your personal injury.

The injury you sustain from an accident can result in a variety of symptoms, ranging from a sore neck or back to an ongoing, chronic condition. Depending on the magnitude of the injury, you may need no treatment at all or you may be admitted to the hospital followed by years of therapy.

Compensation for Personal Injuries and Expenses

If you have sustained an injury that results in medical treatment or loss of income, it is a smart choice to retain a personal injury attorney. With more than 45 years of experience, I know how the system works, what insurance companies need, and how to get you fair payment for your injury.

If you have medical payment MedPay benefits through your automobile insurance policy, I ensure that your claim is properly presented so that you will get paid. So whether you have insurance or not, it’s important to speak to a qualified personal injury attorney.

Property Damage

In addition to your personal injury claim, you may have sustained damage to your vehicle. I take that into consideration to get you compensation for repairs and reimbursement for a rental car while repairs are taking place. If your vehicle is declared a total loss by your insurance company, I will work to get you the money you need to replace that vehicle.

In cases where your accident involves other passengers in your vehicle or damage to personal property, I may be able to include those components in my approach as well.

Fees for a Personal Injury Case

As with all personal injury attorneys, I only receive payment when your case settles. Out of your settlement amount, payment will be made to cover my fees, as well as your medical bills and additional incurred expenses. The remainder is usually paid to you or your estate in full.

If you have questions about the viability of a personal injury case, please call my office at 602-395-0045. Remember that there is never a fee to speak with me. I’m here to help.
