Cases Our Firm Handles
Most personal injury cases are based upon negligence, which means you must prove that the responsible party breached a legal duty, and that you suffered injuries as a result of the breach. Our firm works with victims who are hurt in such accidents as:
- Car Collisions
- Truck Accidents
- Motorcycle Crashes
- Slip and Fall Incidents
- Medical Malpractice and Medical Errors
- Wrongful Death
- Workers’ Compensation
In most cases, you will seek compensation by filing a claim with an insurance company. It is necessary to complete the proper forms and include solid evidence regarding the essential elements of your claim. Insurers will find reasons to deny payment or offer you a lowball amount, but a skilled attorney will conduct an investigation and gather the evidence necessary to support your claim. If necessary, your personal injury attorney will advocate for you in court to help you pursue fair, reasonable compensation for your losses.
The details regarding strategy will vary depending on your case, and it is possible to offer more specific information after conducting a consultation. Mr. Glasgow works within a network of personal injury attorneys, making it possible to work with the best lawyer available for your case.
Seek Top Compensation for Your Losses
There are different types of monetary damages available in a personal injury case, so you may be able to recover compensation for:
- Economic damages, including medical bills and lost wages; and,
- Non-economic damages, such as pain, suffering, scarring, disfigurement, emotional anguish, and losses based upon your relationships with loved ones.
You certainly want to know that your personal injury lawyer will get top compensation for your losses, either through a settlement with the insurance company or at trial. Though each case is different and there is no guarantee, some of our clients have experienced such results as:
- A multimillion dollar settlement with an insurer for a head injury caused by a forklift accident;
- $300,000 for a spinal cord injury due to a slip and fall on dangerous property; and,
- $400,000 for injuries in a car accident caused by distracted driving.
