When a person has been injured in a car wreck, a slip and fall accident, dog bite or medical malpractice incident the other party’s insurance company may be “circling the wagons” to figure out the lowest price it will take to settle the claim. For the injured party, there’s a lot to think about beyond the short term need to settle and get paid. It’s urgent that you discuss all of your options with a personal injury attorney before you accept an insurance company’s offer.
Personal Injury Cases
Motor Vehicle Accidents: Nearly 11 million Americans are involved in traffic accidents every year in the United States. Most people want the entire process to be over quickly with as little out of pocket money spent to get life back on track. Insurance companies understand that.Their adjusters want the company “off the hook” and will often try and cut you a quick check to make the problem go away. But signing a check often means settling the claim before you fully recognize how much the accident set you back. We want to make sure your personal injuries are taken care of properly for years to come.
Premises Liability or “Slip and Fall”: People go to the emergency room to be treated for a fall more often than just about any other injury. That breaks down to more 8 million Americans visiting the hospital emergency room every year. When you step foot outside of your home, owners of locations you visit usually have a duty to exercise reasonable care. When that property owner or business owner fails in that duty and you are hurt, you could be entitled to compensation.
Animal Bites: Centers for Disease Control data shows man and woman’s best friend bites more than 4.7 million people a year requiring some of those people to seek medical attention. A “Beware of Dog” sign doesn’t eliminate a property owners liability if their dog injures another party. That’s why you need to discuss your specific case with a Bartlesville personal injury attorney to see what options are available.
Medical Mistakes: When you go to the doctor’s office or to the hospital for surgery, you expect the procedure to go as promised. But we know that doesn’t always happen. If there’s been a medical mistake, the health care provider sometimes doesn’t inform the patient about the possible extent of the problems. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, awards in medical malpractice jury trials ($400,000) were 17 times greater than the overall median awards in tort jury trials. If you believe negligence on the part of a doctor, a nurse or hospital staff caused your personal injury, our staff can help you weight your legal options.
