With this knowledge, our personal injury law firm 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.
If our attorneys feel the initial settlement offered was unjust, we will aggressively pursue damages against the individual or company that caused the harm. This claim may be based on:
Negligence — When the injury was a direct result of the defendant’s failure to act.
Causation — When the actions of an individual or company cause the injury
Malicious Intent — When the injury is the result of intentional harm. When this is the basis of the claim, a criminal case is usually involved as well.
