Every day people are hurt due to the negligence and carelessness of others. This can lead to catastrophic injuries, massive medical bills and lost wages. If you've been wrongfully injured, I can help you hold the responsible parties accountable. Before you talk to an insurance company about settling a claim, call me, a personal injury attorney, first at Jonathan C. McCardle, Attorney at Law, LLC. I'll help make sure that the insurance company gives you a fair deal.
Getting injured in an accident causes not only physical pain but emotional and financial pain as well. When an injury prevents you from working, it can bring about your financial ruin - a pile of medical bills on top of housing costs and daily living expenses usually spells disaster. Nobody should have to see their life come apart because of the reckless or negligent act of another.
Personal injury cases I commonly see include:
- Car and motorcycle accidents
- Motor vehicle accidents involving 18 wheelers and other commercial vehicles
- Slip-and-fall accidents (premises liability claims)
- Dog bites and other animal attacks
- Wrongful death
Always remember that the way insurance companies make money is by collecting as much in premiums as they can and paying out as little in claims as they think they legally can get away with. Your insurance agent might be the nicest person on the planet, but the claims adjuster who determines the dollar amount of your claim has no vested interest in making you happy with the size of the settlement check. That's my job as your personal injury attorney. I'll work hard to make sure the insurance company does what's right.
