If you have suffered an injury or illness that was caused by someone else then you may be entitled to compensation. Causes of injuries can include dog bites, slip and fall, car accidents, medical malpractice, faulty products and many others. If you have been injured it is important to speak to an attorney quickly. All claims for negligence have a statute of limitations but some like car accidents have other time limits that happen very quickly and if missed can stop you from recovering. The facts surrounding your injury or illness will effect whether you are entitled to compensation.

WHAT TYPES OF NEGLIGENCE CAN RESULT IN COMPENSATION:
Any time that one person is injured by another person’s negligence there is a potential for compensation. The biggest factors will be does the person have insurance that covers the claim, what are the extent of your injuries and did you contribute to the accident. If you have been injured then it is extremely important that you speak to an attorney to understand your rights.
WHAT IF I WAS HURT AT WORK BUT IT WAS CAUSED BY SOMETHING NON-WORK RELATED:
There are times that injuries sustained at work can be covered by worker’s compensation and there may also be liability from a third party. Please contact our office to discuss what worker’s compensation will cover and what will require a separate claim for negligence against the third party.
WHY HIRE AN ATTORNEY:
The most important issue facing a person with an injury is to get better. No one plans on getting hurt. If you make your claim it will be reviewed by individuals that work for the insurance companies that have significantly more experience with negligence and injuries than you do. Let us focus on the legal issues and you focus on healing.
