The most common causes for a severe brain or spinal cord injury are catastrophic falls, motor vehicle accidents, workplace accidents, construction accidents and medical malpractice. When someone has suffered one of these devastating injuries, it is important to find an attorney who understands the legal and medical problems that are going to occur. Our attorney cares for his clients and works with them and their families to obtain the maximum compensation possible for their loss and suffering. We understand this will never restore what our clients have lost, but at least they will have peace of mind knowing they can afford to live a full life.
Because of the severity and permanency of a closed head, brain or spinal cord injury and the cost involved for the long term, the negligent parties responsible for the injury will usually contest any claims. Insurance companies for the parties will attempt to minimize the amount of compensation they have to pay to the injured party, even if their client was clearly negligent. Having an attorney who is experienced in these matters can speed up the process and make an insurance company more likely to come to some type of agreement with the injured person.
Personal injury attorney Jeffrey I. Amtman is not afraid to take on the insurance companies on his client’s behalf. If you or a member of your family has suffered a severe brain or spinal cord injury, contact our office to arrange for a free initial consultation.
