We’re Ready to Recover Financial Compensation for Your Losses
Our lead partner, Attorney Darryl Isaacs, is known locally as “the Hammer.” That’s because he’ll stop at nothing to get what you need. This passion extends to each member of his team.
Through a personal injury claim or a lawsuit, compensable losses in your case may comprise:
Emergency Medical Services
After getting hurt, you may have required immediate medical care, such as:
- Surgery for a severe injury
- Intravenous medications
- Life support
- Ambulance transportation services
- Diagnostic exams
- Stabilization procedures
Financial recovery can account for these hardships after an accident with injuries.
Ongoing Medical Care
The medical treatment doesn’t stop once you leave the hospital. Depending on your injury’s severity, you may require long-term care, which may include:
- Physical therapy
- Mental health services
- Assistive devices
- Doctors’ visits
- Specialized care
- In-home help
If you suffered a disabling condition, you might need in-home modifications, such as widened doorways and wheelchair ramps. Financial recovery can account for these things as well.
Lost Employee-Related Benefits
Being seriously injured can prevent you from working. You shouldn’t have to “play through the pain” to earn a living. While you recover, our team can seek the cost of your:
- Compensation claim
- Paid time off and vacations
- Self-employed income
Pain and Suffering and Inconvenience
We know that being injured causes more than financial losses; it also affects your physical and mental well-being. Pain and suffering, and inconvenience account for:
- Your daily pain levels
- Any changes to your mental health
- Any “inconveniences,” such as having to rely on public transportation
This expense largely depends on your situation. We will examine various aspects of your accident, injuries, and losses to arrive at a fair figure.
Various Out-of-Pocket Expenses
Aside from pain and suffering, other compensable non-economic damages include:
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Catastrophic injuries
- Mental anguish
- Loss of consortium
Wrongful Death-Related Expenses
We’re sorry if you lost a loved one. You shouldn’t have to deal with legal matters while you grieve your loss. While you spend time with your family and friends, we will pursue compensation for your late loved ones:
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Final medical needs
- Other related losses
Common Personal Injury FAQs
I Got Hurt in an Accident. Do I Have a Personal Injury Case?
If you’ve been injured due to another person’s negligence, it’s important to know your legal rights. You could file a lawsuit against the negligent party, but there are some things to keep in mind. First, if you’re under 18 years old, you cannot sue anyone for negligence unless you have a parent or guardian. If you’re over 18, you still don’t have a claim unless you can prove that someone else’s negligence caused the accident. In addition, the law varies depending on where you live. For example, in Kentucky, you must show that someone else’s negligence caused your injuries. However, in Indiana, you must show that the defendant owed you a duty of care.
The best way to find out if you have a personal injury claim is to talk to an attorney. A lawyer can help you determine whether you have a valid case and advise you about your options.
Why Should I Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Insurance companies are notorious for giving people the runaround when getting paid. They often delay payments, offer low settlements, or deny coverage altogether. This leaves many people without compensation for injuries sustained due to negligence. At times, insurance companies even try to blame victims for accidents that occurred while they were driving.
If you’ve been involved in an accident caused by another driver, you’re probably wondering whether hiring a personal injury lawyer could make a difference. After all, what do lawyers know about car crashes? How much money can they make off of cases like yours? And most importantly, why should you hire one?
In this video, we answer those questions and more. We talk about the types of cases that personal injury attorneys take on, how they work, and what makes them unique.
You might want to watch this video ahead of our next video on common mistakes made by people who file personal injury lawsuits.
What Kind of Compensation Can I Get After an Accident?
The law allows you to recover economic damages, such as medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. You can also receive compensation if property damage was involved in your accident case. You can also collect punitive damages intended to punish the wrongdoer and deter others from similar behavior. If you suffered physical injuries, you could also seek compensation for those losses, including scarring, disfigurement, and impairment. In addition, you can sue for emotional distress, loss of consortium, and even death.
In some cases, you can receive both economic and non-economic damages. For example, if you suffer serious injury, you could file a personal injury lawsuit seeking recovery for medical bills, lost wages and earning capacity, pain and suffering, and permanent disability. However, you cannot recover for future earnings because it is too speculative.
You can also sue for wrongful death, compensating family members for their grief and loss. A wrongful death claim requires proof that the deceased died due to another party’s negligence. You will need to discuss these things with your legal team during your initial consultation.
Calculating and Pursuing Your Losses through a Claim
We want you to recover everything you need to pay for your losses. We will evaluate your past, present, and future losses to determine what constitutes a fair settlement. This involves reviewing your injury-related invoices, receipts, and billing statements.
We will first pursue your losses by filing an insurance claim. This involves:
- Sending your demand letter
- Filing your claim’s paperwork
- Negotiating a settlement
- Protecting you from bad faith insurance practices
- Reviewing the liability insurance policy
- Fighting for what you need
