Recover What You Are Entitled To
Personal injury law encompasses a wide range of serious bodily injuries resulting from the negligence or recklessness of another. Injuries are broadly categorized by accident type, such as car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, boating accident, construction accident, a pedestrian accident, dog bite or slip and fall.
Further classification refers to the type of serious injury sustained in the accident. Examples of serious personal injury are spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, birth injury, severe and extensive burns, paralysis, paraplegia, quadriplegia or loss of one or both eyes or compound fractures to name a few.
When you are involved in an accident, the negligent party may be liable for the cost of injures or wrongful death. Therefore, it is essential to retain a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. At the Law Offices of David E. Kelley & Associates, we take immediate action to protect your rights, preserve evidence and pursue compensation for your injuries.
Your first priority is regaining your health, but you will have many responsibilities and decisions following a car or truck accident. While you concentrate on getting well, your attorney will investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident, as well as dealing with the insurance companies to file claims and seek equitable settlement.
David and his associates represent injured people, not insurance companies. As your advocate, David is committed to aggressively pursuing legal remedies for your personal injury accident. While insurance companies try to downplay the extent of your injuries and reduce claims they pay you, David will pursue every avenue to recover damages on your behalf and maximize your settlement.
Many plaintiffs’ personal injury claims are settled out of court through:
A negotiated settlement – Your attorney meets with the insurance company adjuster and presents necessary information to reach a fair settlement, such as medical records and expenses substantiating the severity of your injury, evidence of lost wages, as well as a sampling of verdicts and settlements of similar cases.
Mediation – During mediation a third party listens to both parties and assists in arriving at an agreed upon settlement.
Arbitration – During arbitration a third party listens to both parties and rules regarding compensation, which may include monetary awards for damages, medical expenses, lost wages and rehabilitation.
While out of court settlement is less stressful and often more expeditious than a trial, as an expert trial attorney, Mr. Kelley is always prepared to go to take your case before a judge and jury to obtain a ruling to recover the maximum compensation allowable under the law.
