It takes an experienced attorney to help sort out what damages you are entitled to recover, and what the value of those damages are. There are generally two types of damages for which you may be compensated:
These are damages that can be quantified with precision. Examples of these types of damages are past and future medical expenses, past and future lost wages, vocational retraining, property damage and loss of services (which is the cost of providing services such as housework, yard work, home maintenance and other things that you were able to do yourself before being injured).
These are damages that are often more difficult to quantify because they are subjective. Examples of these types of damages are pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, mental anguish and emotional distress.
We offer an initial consultation free of charge. Our toll free number is 1-888-671-7447. If we obtain a recovery for you, we will charge you a percentage of what we obtain for you, after costs are paid. You owe us no fees unless we recover a settlement for you.
In order to protect your rights, it is important to navigate the claims process in a manner that provides you the opportunity to be fully compensated for your injuries. Sometimes the claims process takes a long time, and an injured person needs to be vigilant each step of the way. The claims process includes performing a thorough accident investigation and procuring all medical treatment needed. It also includes:
- Determining how the accident has impacted your life
- Hiring experts who can help a jury understand how the accident happened
- Talking to witnesses about the accident
- Getting you vocational retraining, if necessary
- Dealing with the insurance company for the at-fault party
- Dealing with your insurance company if there is an uninsured or underinsured motorist claim, and
- Determining what sources of recovery are available, such as insurance, to compensate you for your damages.
This complicated claims process needs to be handled by experienced attorneys, staff and experts. The Law Office of Dennis Murphy provides such services for you, so you can concentrate on recovering from your injuries.
