P ersonal injury law involves injury which is caused accidentally by another’s failure to use reasonable care. The definition of reasonable care is determined on a case-by-case basis. A person may be liable for the injury caused through negligent or reckless action.
Types of personal injury include injury and wrongful death cases arising from automobile, bike and pedestrian collisions, trucking accidents, boat and airplane accidents, construction accidents and OSHA violations, premises liability, product liability, nursing home liability, toxic and mass torts, medical malpractice, and other forms of negligence. An injured person may recover damages for medical expenses, property damage, emotional distress, pain and suffering, loss of consortium or companionship, lost wages, costs and attorney fees, and lost future earnings.
Fortunately, the law protects those harmed and allows the injured to seek compensation for their suffering. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident resulting from negligence you may be entitled to receive just compensation for your physical and psychological injuries.
Your rights can be permanently forfeited if you believe what you’re told by the insurance company. Insurance companies will employ significant resources to challenge your claim in order to maximize their profits. With powerful legal teams and years of experience, these large corporations often have the edge when dealing with injured people. If your injury was caused by a workplace accident, your situation may be further complicated by workers’ compensation laws. Even in circumstances where negligence and fault seem unquestionable, there is a time limit for filing a claim or lawsuit.
You take a tremendous risk if you don’t have a skilled personal injury attorney on your side. Here at the Law Office of Terry K. Fleming, we have a huge amount of personal injury experience, and can help to level the playing field. Our team will work diligently to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
Mr. Fleming takes the time to learn all about your case and assess whether or not you should take the initial settlement offered by the insurance company. With the foresight and skill to look down the road and consider future damages which may harm you for years to come—including pain, emotional trauma and subsequent injuries—Mr. Fleming can properly evaluate the full extent of the damage and help to determine if the initial settlement is fair and adequate to ensure your full physical and financial recovery. However, if he feels that the settlement offer is insufficient, he will aggressively pursue damages against the company or individual responsible.
Claims may be based on:
Negligence—When the injury is a direct result of the defendant’s failure to act.
Causation—When the injury is the result of actions taken by an individual or company.
Product Liability—When a product causes an injury because it did not meet appropriate safety standards.
While we cannot undo your injury or eliminate your pain and suffering, Mr. Fleming is dedicated to obtaining the very best recovery possible for you through experienced, professional and aggressive representation. Certain cases may be referred to outside counsel.
