If you’ve suffered mental or physical injury due to the negligence of an individual or organization, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim. It’s important to recognize that an injury can result not only from someone’s act, but from his or her failure to act.
Fortunately, most personal injury cases are settled out of court, so hiring an experienced personal injury law firm such as Jenkins-Bryant & Surrette does not necessarily mean you’ll be involved in a long, drawn-out legal battle. Instead, retaining legal counsel is sometimes exactly what’s needed to convince the other side to negotiate in good faith.
The insurance company is not on your side. We are.
You might be tempted to take the settlement the insurance company offers, thinking it’s the best you’re going to do and that accepting their payment will enable you to move on more quickly. What you’ll never know is how much bigger your settlement could have been if only you had hired a good personal injury attorney.
Personal injury law covers a wide range of situations, including motor vehicle accidents, slips-and-falls, animal bites, boating accidents, abuse and neglect, defective product injuries, and many others. If you or a loved one has been injured, contact our office right away, regardless of how minor the injury may seem at first. It may turn out to be more serious than you think, with consequences for which you deserve compensation above and beyond what the insurance company adjuster thinks you should get. Remember, insurance adjusters work for the insurance company, not for you. Our job is to take on the insurance companies and take them to court, if necessary to get you what you deserve.
