Hiring an Injury Attorney
All too often victims are confused about whether or not they should hire an attorney to file a claim. While they can handle their claim themselves, they can count on obtaining a low-ball settlement because they don't have the knowledge or the skills to understand the true value of their claim, whereas a seasoned attorney would be a formidable adversary that wouldn't accept a low dollar settlement offer.

How much is my claim worth?
Every personal injury case is very unique. How much the victim can anticipate obtaining depends on a variety of factors including the extent of their injuries, the medical costs and anticipated medical costs, as well as any other past, present and future damages that are incurred resulting from the accident.

Insurance Companies
Insurance companies are focused on one thing, their bottom line; therefore, as the injured victim, it can be very frustrating dealing with an adjuster who is actively working against you, making every attempt to pay you as little as possible. You can count on the fact that whatever they offer you is below the value of your claim. For this reason, it's critical that you enlist the services of a highly knowledgeable attorney to combat such low-ball settlement offers.

Strict Liability
Strict liability is an aspect of product liability law. Basically, with strict liability when a manufacturer releases a dangerous or defective product on the market that injures a consumer, the manufacturer can be held "strictly liable" for any damages incurred regardless if they were negligent or not.

Settlement vs. Trial
The vast majority of personal injury claims are settled outside of court; however, there are cases where it becomes apparent that a case would be better served if it was taken to court. If the legally liable party is offering too low of a settlement and we cannot come to terms with their offer, then we may be able to secure a larger verdict if a judge rules in our client's favor.

Who is liable?
Personal injury claims fall under different categories depending upon where the accident occurred and the circumstances of the case. In a medical malpractice case, liability may fall upon the hospital or on the medical doctor themselves if they were an independent contractor. In a dog bite case, if the accident occurred on the owner's property, then the dog's owner would be held responsible; however, if that dog bit someone on commercial property, then the property's owner or the leaseholder may be held responsible because the dog attack occurred on their property.

What is negligence?
When someone fails to take proper safety precautions, or when they act in a reckless manner and someone else is injured as a result, it is considered to be negligent. Examples of negligence would be a driver that was driving at excessive speeds on a residential street, or a store owner who failed to mop up a spill, or a commercial building owner that failed to properly maintain their elevators, all of these would be considered negligent behaviors that can lead to undue harm and injuries.

  1. After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
