Personal Injury Claims

I handle Personal Injury Claims arising from incidents such as slips-and-falls or trips-and-falls.

Personal Injury Claims

Operators (occupiers) of commercial establishments like retail stores, hotels, and restaurants, and even private landowners, owe a duty to visitors to maintain their lands and premises (including parking lots) in a reasonably safe condition. For example, a grocery store must keep the floor of the store reasonably dry and clean, and a gas station must keep the area around the gas pumps reasonably clear of ice and snow. If the occupier fails to fulfil these duties and you are hurt as a result, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses.

Often, there is an insurance company working behind the scenes to defend against your claim. It is helpful for you to have legal assistance when dealing with the insurance company.

Evaluating Your Personal Injury Claim

The earlier you speak to a lawyer about your case, the better your chances may be of bringing it to a successful conclusion. I provide a free initial consultation to people who have Personal Injury Claims. During this meeting I will:

  • Go over the details of the incident;
  • Discuss your injuries and your current medical treatment;
  • Explain your rights and responsibilities during the claim process; and
  • Help you make an informed decision on whether you should pursue a claim.

When I act on a contingency fee agreement (percentage agreement), you do not pay anything until your case is over. During the case I carry the costs to have you examined by expert medical witnesses, the costs of obtaining medical reports and records, and the other necessary costs which arise in personal injury claims. You will not have to borrow money to pay your legal expenses as your case proceeds.

Time Limits

There are deadlines for you to start your lawsuit arising from a personal injury claim. These deadlines are sometimes referred to as "limitation periods." If the deadline to start a lawsuit is missed by even as little as one day, the claimant may be prevented from seeking compensation for injuries and other losses simply because that deadline was missed. You should consult a lawyer promptly for advice about these time deadlines.

Free Initial Consultation

I offer a free initial consultation in personal injury claims. During our discussion I will review the circumstances of your claim and provide you with summary advice about your rights and responsibilities, at no charge to you.
