Fighting for your rights when you’ve been hurt in an accident
What is negligence? Negligence is a common legal term used in personal injury cases and covers a wide range of claims. Often, what we think of as “careless” or an “accident” in our everyday lives falls under the legal term negligence.
The law imposes certain standards and duties for how people should act and treat each other. One of the most important duties we all have under the law is to act in the way that a “reasonably careful person would do.” Ordinary care is another name for how a reasonably careful person would act. Negligence is when another person, or business, fails to meet this legal obligation.
Negligence can be the result of a person’s wrongful action or a person’s failure to act properly. For example, a driver is negligent when she hits a jogger because she is distracted by a cellphone. Similarly, a nursing home is negligent if it fails to recognize that a patient has fallen and injured himself and the painful injury goes untreated.
Our lawyers fight for the best possible outcome
While you can never be fully compensated or made whole, we can help to restore you to the financial position you were in before you were injured. You may recover compensation for both the harm you have already suffered, as well as the losses you will continue to experience in the future. You may be compensated for a wide range of losses including for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost salary or wages.
Negligent parties often deny doing anything wrong. Insurance companies will always try to pay you as little as possible – preferably nothing, if they can get away with it. They have lawyers looking out for their best interests and looking for a way to avoid their responsibility.
We investigate your accident to get the facts. Our legal team gathers evidence, reviews documentation and interviews witnesses. If needed, we consult experts who can help us understand what happened. Then our attorneys build a case that demonstrates the negligence of another party left you injured.
