If you were exposed to asbestos, one of the possible side effects you could be dealing with is mesothelioma. Asbestos is a mineral that was used in the recent past in the construction of buildings, ships, and more. Now, years later, individuals are left dealing with the consequences of the illnesses it can cause. Another chemical which can cause devastating consequences when exposed to is benzene. By breathing it or drinking it, studies have shown that it can lead to anemia, lung damage, brain damage, and leukemia. If these instances of exposure occurred at work, the victim could be entitled to workers’ compensation. Some insurance companies, however, can be reluctant to give victims the assistance they deserve and a legal representative may need to step in in order to ensure they are treated fairly.
If you lost a loved one due to the negligence of another individual, you could be entitled to compensation. We understand that no amount of money will ever be able to make up for the loss of a loved one; however, it is still important to hold the guilty party responsible for their actions so that the same tragedy does not affect another individual. If a loved one was killed in a car accident, by a dangerous drug, or on the premises of another person, the guilty party should be held accountable for what they have done. You could receive compensation for your pain and suffering, funeral arrangements, burial costs, and well as lost income. We know that filing a lawsuit will not make the situation any easier, but it could bring a sense of justice and closure.
If the victim does not die from the personal injury accident, they could still be left dealing with serious injuries. Among the most common are brain injuries, burn injuries, and spinal cord injuries. In some cases, the victim is able to fully recover and get back to normal, but in other cases they can be left dealing with permanent disabilities. If this is the case, they will not only need compensation for their initial medical bills, but for the life-long treatment and care they will require. If your injury was sustained while on the property of another individual, they could be held responsible for your injuries under premises liability law. Owners owe people on their property a certain duty of care and if they are negligent in ensuring that their premises is safe, they could have to pay for any medical expenses which resulted.
Fighting for Compensation & Just Resolutions
In the wake of a serious accident or other incident which results in injury, you could be entitled to compensation. We realize that monetary compensation will in no way make up for the trauma and fear that is caused by an accident, yet it is still important that you hold the guilty individual accountable for what they have done. If you do not, the same incident could happen to another victim. Another reason it is important to file a personal injury claim is so that you do not have to bear the added financial burden which can result. You can receive a settlement or the judge can order that you are reimbursed for any medical treatment you already received. Not only that, but the amount of medical care you will need in the future can be determined and included in the award. If you had to take time off of work, lost wages can also be compensated for.
Our willingness to go to trial contributes not only to the negotiation process but allows us to exploit all avenues available for the pursuit of justice for our clients. The background some of our attorneys have in defending insurance companies also provides us with invaluable insight into how these companies operate as they endeavor to settle with as small a payout as possible. We know exactly how to counteract their tactics and do so aggressively.
