Helping Accident Victims Seek Fair Compensation for Their Injuries
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.
At Raymond Ravis Attorney at Law, our injury firm in Jacksonville is committed to providing you with the attentive, thorough, and insightful counsel you need to file a successful claim. Contact us today to schedule a free initial consultation.
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 another 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 we offer our clients.
We assist clients with a wide range of issues, including:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Animal attacks
- Medical malpractice
- Premises liability
- Workers’ compensation
- Wrongful death
- Construction accidents
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 diminished quality of life long after any settlement is reached. We 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.
Negotiating with Insurance Companies
If you’ve suffered an injury, don’t try to deal with the insurance companies on your own. Chances are they will try to convince you to accept a settlement that offers less than you deserve, while also waiving any right to collect further damages in the future. Having once represented insurance companies, we know the process and understand how to negotiate with them to get a fair settlement. Or, if needed, our Jacksonville injury firm has the experience to take your case to court and defend your rights.
Don’t risk losing your power to negotiate with insurance companies, call (904) 358-4004 today if you’re injured and need representation that will fight for your rights.
