Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

What is the Personal Injury Claims Process?
The personal injury claims process begins when an injury victim submits a claim to an insurance company. Typically, they will file this claim against the insurer for the party who caused the accident. The insurance company will assign an adjuster to investigate the claim. If the adjuster determines the insurance company is liable for the accident, it will offer a settlement to cover the victim’s damages. However, these settlement offers don’t always fully account for the victim’s losses. If they determine the insurer is not liable, they will deny the claim.
What is a Personal Injury Case?
A personal injury case is a legal action that arises from an accident or injury. Typically, these cases are based on negligence. An injury claim provides a way for the victim to recover compensation for losses they’ve experienced due to the incident. Personal injury cases typically arise from motor vehicle accidents, construction accidents, slip and falls, medical malpractice, and other injury-causing events.
What Damages Are Available to Accident Victims?
Accident victims are entitled to damages for all losses sustained in an accident. These damages come in two broad forms. Economic damages compensate victims for direct financial losses related to the accident. These include medical expenses, lost income, diminished earning capacity, and more. Non-economic damages cover non-financial losses that don’t have a clear financial value. Examples include pain and suffering, emotional distress, disfigurement, reduced quality of life, and loss of consortium.
What Questions Should I Ask a Personal Injury Lawyer?
When searching for a personal injury lawyer, you should ask questions about their experience, services and results.  You only have one chance to recover and finding the right lawyer can make a big difference in the final outcome of your case, the level of services that you receive, and the amount of compensation that you are awarded.   Want more information? Read our full article here.
What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?
Personal injury lawyers help victims recover compensation for injuries and damages that someone else’s negligence caused. They do this by helping clients with insurance claims and/or civil lawsuits. Want to learn more? Read our full article here.
Do I Need A Personal Injury Lawyer?
You do not need a personal injury lawyer, but one can benefit you in many ways following an accident resulting in serious physical harm. Severe injuries can lead to expensive medical care, extended absences from work, pain and suffering, and other damages.

  • Reviewing medical records, test results and reports to understand the full extent of the injury
  • Requesting information on the facility and caregivers, including training, background checks, and previous violations

Why Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Occurs

Nursing home abuse and neglect may constitute criminal acts. A nursing home abuse lawyer can report what happened to the appropriate agencies. You and your loved one have the right to pursue damages when a nursing home fails to uphold its duty to protect a resident from harm.

There is no excuse for abusing the most vulnerable citizens.  Often times neglect may be caused by:

  • Inadequate training
  • Insufficient staff that leads to a high caregiver-to-resident ratio
  • Incomplete background checks
  • Negligent supervision of residents, leading to violence or abuse between residents
  • High employee turnover

Warning Signs: How to Recognize Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

Abusive caregivers tend to gravitate toward victims who are socially isolated or who are physically or cognitively challenged. That is why our nursing home abuse attorneys want you to be aware of the warning signs of abuse, including:

  • Unexplained bruises, burns, or falls
  • Dirty, unkempt appearance and living space
  • Missing money or valuables
  • Appearing fearful or agitated when abuser is present
  • Withdrawing from favorite activities or refusing a telephone or in-person visit

If you suspect that your loved one is the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, do not wait. It is better to be proactive than regret inaction if tragedy strikes.
