If you were injured and someone else is at fault you will be entitled to financial compensation in the form of money damages. The cause of the injury to you or a member of your family may be a motor vehicle accident, slip and fall, negligence of your landlord, a defect on property, a dog bite, a playground or a school. The injury may be caused by a dangerous product, doctor or hospital staff. Sometimes you’re not sure but know that negligence cause the injury and it was not the fault of the person injured.
The injured person, or his family, must prove fault so you had better find a lawyer that understands the law and will take the time to listen to your story. If you, your child or your family has been injured by negligence of another you deserve compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and perhaps more. In the law these things are known as damages and are different in each state.
Sometimes damages include compensation to your husband or wife and children, sometimes known as loss of consortium.
At Feniger & Uliasz, we explain these things at the beginning. You meet with a lawyer who will take the time to listen to what you have to say and take the time to understand. Some times that may take a while but, we never rush because a clear understanding of the facts is important to the successful outcome of your case. Often times, our lawyers will meet with people in the hospital or at their home. We are used to dealing with serious injuries that confine our clients to the hospital or home.
We never charge for the initial consultation, it’s free. Even if we travel to you. Getting what you deserve starts with the law firm that you deserve, a team of dedicated professionals with the dedication and compassion necessary to get the results you need. We think we are that law firm.
If your injury was at work your legal rights are controlled by the Workers’ Compensation law of the state where you were hired or injured and that determination may make a big difference in your case. Unlike other injury cases, claims are litigated through an administrative agency before or instead of the court system.
The rules are tricky and your employer and insurance company will always have a lawyer, so you should too. You deserve compensation for lost wages based on what you were earning when you got hurt. The workers compensation insurance company must pay your medical bills.
If the injury was caused by someone other than your employer you may deserve additional compensation for pain and suffering. We call that a third party claim.
At Feniger & Uliasz we do what our clients need to get the results they want and deserve.
We want to help you and your family get the settlement you deserve.
