Personal Injury Law
Cases, especially involving injuries, can be very, very different because every person is different, and every circumstance that caused a wreck or an accident or a loss can be different.
But there are some general ideas that we look for. First, when someone calls I want to know, are you still undergoing treatment? Are you cleared from the doctor? Once we get a general handle on what’s going on with the medical bills–whether they’ll be cleared soon or could be for the rest of your life. Then we like to sit down and go over, what’s the cost of all this? What did it cost you personally?
We like to look at the economic damages; we like to look at the personal damages, and in some instances we’re looking at–you know–the mental damages: the anguish, the pain, the suffering. And I think people kind of give those short shrift at times, and sometimes that’s the worst part.
Heck, I give people a memo pad, and I say, “Start writing down how you felt today,” because two, three, four, five years later, you may not remember; you may gloss over how hard it was on that particular day to get up, to go to work, to leave to go to physical therapy, to limp around in pain, to not be able to go to your child’s basketball game, to not be able to play outside with your family.
Those are the type of things that we really want to focus on with people. And we encourage you to call us to discuss any of the types of situations below:
