Corren & Corren regularly represents individuals in a variety of different personal injury and accident matters including car accidents, wrongful death cases, animal bites, workplace accidents, premises liability matters, truck accidents, boat accidents, slip and falls, and construction accidents.
We are typically looking for three basic things when we analyze whether you might have a potential injury or accident case:
- Is some one else legally responsible for causing the accident?
- Does some one else have insurance and/or the financial ability to be responsible for your injuries?
- Have you suffered injuries and/or losses because of some one else's actions and/or inactions?
A personal injury victim is potentially entitled to certain remedies including:
- health provider expenses
- lost income
- pain and suffering compensation
- property damages and loss of use monies
A personal injury victim is potentially entitled to receive compensation for the incurred health provider expenses related to the accident. Our law firm not only tries to recover all such health provider expenses from the responsible party, but we also try to help our clients negotiate any unpaid medical bills. In addition, we try to help resolve any issues involving alleged reimbursement or lien rights as health providers and health insurance companies will often try to claim they are entitled to some of the monies potentially recoverable from the responsible party.
A personal injury victim is also potentially entitled to receive compensation when the ability to work has been compromised by the accident. Our office obtains the necessary evidence to demonstrate and substantiate our clients' lost income claims whether or not they work for a third party or are self-employed.
In addition, a personal injury victim is potentially entitled to receive compensation for the pain and suffering caused by the accident. Although pain and suffering compensation is often a difficult issue to quantify, typically there is some sort of relationship between the nature and severity of the injuries and the amount of monies potentially recoverable.
When a personal injury victim has sustained damage to a vehicle, repair costs and/or loss of use compensation is often also potentially recoverable. The responsible party is potentially liable for the property damage to the vehicle and loss of use monies while the vehicle is being repaired or is declared a total loss because the repair costs exceed the fair market value of the vehicle.
