Filing A Personal Injury Claim
When another person’s negligence — or that of a company or business — results in serious injuries to you or a loved one, you should consider filing a personal injury claim for damages associated with your injury.
Certain time limits may apply, so it is important to talk to a lawyer soon after your accident has occurred. Our lawyers represent victims of car accidents, truck accidents, dangerous product accidents and other accidents. We also represent family members who are pursuing compensation after an accident caused the death of a loved one.
Filing A Workers’ Compensation Claim
After suffering an injury at work, the accident should be reported to your employer. After you have sought medical treatment for your injury, you should talk to a workers’ compensation attorney. The process of filing a claim is detailed and complex. Do not wait to get the legal representation you need to prepare your claim.
We can help you with your initial claim as well as an appeal, if your initial claim was denied. Before taking any action, talk to a lawyer who can guard your rights.
