Did you know?
If you’ve been in an auto accident, injured at work, slipped at a store or otherwise suffered an injury that occurred as a result of another’s negligence, you could be entitled to a personal injury judgment that can help you with medical, living and recovery expenses.
Personal injury cases can be complicated because they require showing that injury was the result of negligence from another party, which could be an individual, a corporation, an agency or other organization. Employers, store owners, drivers and others must make a reasonable effort to keep their premises and their actions safe for the public. If the negligent party should have known that their actions were unsafe, there could be grounds for a personal injury suit.
From distracted driving to wet floors to improperly maintained equipment, there are many possible negligent causes for personal injury. However, any case must be backed up with evidence that the negligent party didn’t take reasonable precautions to ensure that their property, machinery or actions were safe. This will take the kind of research, diligence and investigation that Ray provides to his clients.
Any potential settlement will depend upon the severity of the injury. In some cases, the injuries are obvious. In others, it may take a doctor to properly diagnose the extent. However, regardless of how severe the injuries are, if the future impact of the injury isn’t taken into account, a personal injury victim may continue to take on expenses, lost income and a lesser quality of life long after any settlement is reached. Ray can help personal injury victims determine the true, long-term costs of their injuries, and will be prepared to fight the negligent parties and insurance companies to make sure they fairly compensate their victims.
