Accidents happen! There is nothing we can do to prevent accidents from happening. However, when they do happen and people are injured as a result of them, you may have the right to recover for the damages and injuries you sustained.
The key component in evaluating "accidents" from a legal perspective, is to determine the negligence of the parties involved. The party that caused the accident may have 100% of the responsibility or some of the responsibility which is referred to as "comparative negligence". An attorney can help you evaluate your case to determine whether you may have a right of recovery following an accident.
It is important to contact an attorney following an accident because if you have a cause of action it is easier to obtain incident reports, police reports, contact witnesses, and speak with other interested parties sooner rather than later when the information is fresh. For the most part, general negligence claims or "accidents" need to brought within 2 years but there are exceptions to the rule.
At Lampert & Walsh, LLC our focus is on personal injury accidents. We only represent Plaintiffs that are making claims against the negligent party and never represent corporations or insurance companies. Contact one of our attorneys today for a free over the phone consultation to discuss your particular case and the cause of action that may be available. We work only on a contingency fee meaning that we do not get paid for our time and effort unless you settle your case or obtain a jury verdict.
At Lampert & Walsh, LLC we first work to get the injured party healthy again. We work with a network of doctors, chiropractors, surgeons, physical therapists, massage therapists, and other medical providers to get you the medical treatment you need and deserve. Our number one goal is to get you the medical treatment you need first and worry about the results of the case later. We do not rush to get our clients a settlement without knowing the full extent of our client’s injuries and their need to future medical care and treatment. In some case, the future treatment and needs for medical care are complex and need to be documented by a medical professional. At Lampert & Walsh, LLC we are also sensitive to the fact that some people may not have health insurance and have no access to a medical professional following an accident. When this happens, we can normally set up our clients to treat on a lien basis with a doctor so the injured party can be made whole again. In other words, the medical professional will wait to get paid for their services until you settle your claim.
Once our clients have recovered from their injuries, it is important to get our clients justice for the injuries they have sustained. We are trial attorneys which means that we take cases to trial for our clients when the case deserves to be taken to trial. While some law firms simply settle cases and never litigate claims, these law firms usually do not get what the true "value" of the case is for their clients. These firms are not putting the client’s interests ahead of their own. At Lampert & Walsh, LLC, we try to resolve our clients claims with the insurance adjusters prior to attempting litigation. However, when we are unsuccessful at getting the results our client’s demand, we take the very necessary next step and set these cases for trial. This ultimately guarantees that the client will get the maximum value for their claim.
