A: The clients we represent are all suffering from serious medical injuries such as traumatic brain injuries (head), spinal cord injuries, eye injuries, wrist injuries, severe tissue damage (burns, cuts, punctures) and/or severely broken bones.We also represent family members for the wrongful death of a loved one. A wrongful death case can arise from many different types of situations. Wrongful death cases are commonly seen in relation to motor vehicle accidents, truck accidents, tractor trailer accidents, medical malpractice, and construction accidents.
A: There are numerous ways to resolve your personal injury case. This is largely determined on a case by case basis. The decision has much to do with your preference. Some of the possibilities are:
- File a lawsuit immediately;
- Collect the medical records, health information, medical bills, and other necessary documents and attempt to settle the case prior to filing the lawsuit; and
- Attempt to reach a settlement at Mediation.
Most of the time, our law firm files the lawsuit immediately.Filing the lawsuit moves the case in a forward direction. We can still attempt to reach a settlement in your case during the litigation process and before the case is actually tried. Depending on where the lawsuit is filed, the court will typically give you a trial date approximately one to two years out from the filing date. Our law office will keep you updated on the specific court dates as they become firm.

Because of the requests, I have created a lawyer directory of referring attorneys. Please feel free to ask us for a recommendation. We will help you find a lawyer who does exactly what you need.
