What To Do If an Elderly Person Suffers an Injury?
If you or a loved one have suffered an injury you may be entitled to monetary compensation from the person or company whose negligent conduct caused the injury. Document everything including any medical visits, time missed from work, and insurance company conversations. Where possible, get all communications in writing.
What does Personal Injury Representation cost?
Attorneys sometimes represent clients on a “contingency basis,” in which the attorney does not charge for services until the case is resolved. Attorneys in our network provide a FREE Initial Claim Evaluation. Among your many questions you should ask, inquire how their fee structure works.
