Seeking Compensation from Insurance
Insurance companies are corporate entities focused on profits for stockholders, not on the individual who has suffered injury, and in many cases take strong measures to try to reduce claims. When the injured individual does not understand the types of claims that could be made on their behalf, they may receive a settlement that is far lower than could be attained with the assistance of a skilled personal injury lawyer. There are some situations where an insurance company may attempt to deny a claim altogether, delay payment of a claim or offer an injured party a settlement worth far less than their actual claim should be worth.
In these situations involving bad faith practices by an insurer, an attorney can make a big difference. In some cases, simply involving an attorney to put legal pressure on the insurance company will improve their treatment of your claim. In other cases, it will require negotiation to seek a fair settlement, or the case may even need to go to civil court to be resolved. At our law firm, we can assist you in any aspect of your dealings with the insurance company in the wake of an accident or injury in the Sonoma or Petaluma areas. Our goal is to help you recover the just settlement or award you need for your personal injury claim.
Victim of medical malpractice?
Besides traffic accidents, there are a multitude of other situations that could merit a personal injury claim or lawsuit. As personal injury attorneys, we believe that you should be able to trust that your doctor will take care of you. If you have been injured by a careless doctor or other medical professional, you may be a victim of medical malpractice. You might assume that medical malpractice cases only involve doctors and surgeons. This is not true. For instance, a careless or negligent doctor or nurse in the delivery room could cause a
birth injury to you or your new baby, or a distracted nurse could harm you by making a
medication error. In reality, medical malpractice refers to professional negligence committed by any medical professional, including:
- Emergency Room Doctors
- Care Providers
Malpractice can result in serious injury or death. If you or a loved one has been hurt by a thoughtless doctor of other medical professional, contact our firm today to see what we can do for your medical malpractice case.
Hurt while on the job?
In the United States, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration requires that employers provide safe work environments for their employees. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 4,500 employees died in fatal, work-related accidents in 2010. If you've been hurt at work because you employer failed to give you the safe work environment you are entitled to, you may deserve money for your medical expenses and lost wages.
Construction workers are at an especially high risk of injury on the job. Construction sites are innately dangerous and employers who fail to provide their workers with the proper safety equipment, etc., place their employees at unnecessary risk of injury in a construction accident. If you believe that your injury was the result of your boss's failure to provide an adequate work environment, we urge you to speak with an attorney as soon as possible.
Fighting for the Rights of the Injured in Sonoma County
By putting your future in the capable hands of an experienced injury lawyer, you are giving yourself the strongest advantage possible towards maximum monetary compensation. We understand that the effects of an accident are long reaching and stretch beyond the mere financial strain. An accident can touch every aspect of your life, from emotional to physical, and can linger for years after the incident.
When dealing with this dedicated firm, you will not be shoved off onto an employee - you will be assisted by a personal injury attorney from the firm from the moment the case is taken on. Each case is given the full attention and consideration that it deserves, and you will be kept well informed of the case as it progresses.
