A personal injury can include substantial pain, the impairment of a physical condition or the impairment of a mental condition. We commonly recognize injuries as broken bones, bruises, pain, brain damage, concussion, spinal cord injuries, and internal injuries as the types of injuries for which we can recover compensation. We also recognize mental impairments as the types of injuries for which we can recover compensation, including anxiety and psychological disorders caused by the negligence of other parties.
Brittenburg Law, LLC offers free consultations concerning your case to determine whether we feel we can help you to protect your rights. When you meet with us for a free consultation, bring with you any documentation you have concerning your case, including police or traffic reports, medical reports, notes, and photographs.
Most personal injuries are pursued on a contingent fee basis, which means you do not pay the firm. If we settle the case or succeed in a trial, a percentage of the settlement or award is paid to the firm, contingent upon the success of the case. You do not have to pay anything out of pocket. The firm will cover the costs of the litigation, the retention of expert witnesses and investigators, filing fees and the like. Should we successfully resolve the case, the firm recoups its expenditures from the settlement or the award, so you never have to pay for the costs of the litigation.
More often than not, cases settle without the filing of a lawsuit or going to trial. The early disposition of cases means you can begin the process of putting this stressful event in the past and moving forward with your life. However, if we cannot amicably settle the case, you will want a trial-ready attorney – like Brittenburg Law – who has vast experience in the courtroom, with a deep comfort in jury trials.
It is important to speak with legal counsel quickly and to avoid unnecessary delay. Personal injury cases must be filed within prescribed time limits. Depending on the jurisdiction in which your injury occurred and the type of injury, there can be special rules governing the timing for the filing of a complaint.
The value of a personal injury case depends upon a number of factors. Each case is different. To determine the value of your case, at a minimum we will begin by identifying known losses you have suffered, including your financial losses like: past medical bills, future medical bills, and wage loss from work. We will also endeavor to get you compensation for the pain and suffering you have experienced as a result of another’s negligence.
