The aftermath of an injury caused by someone else can be an overwhelming and frustrating situation for the victim. Medical bills and time missed from work in order to recover can represent serious financial burdens. At the same time, the trauma of the injury itself may have to be dealt with.
Whatever the specifics of your injury case might be, the responsible party owes you financial compensation for what you’ve had to endure. While you are well within your rights to represent yourself in court , hiring an Orange County injury lawyer from Dickson, Kohan & Bablove will make your experience with the legal system go much, much smoother.
We Know How the Insurance Companies Operate
Insurance companies have tactics they employ to either frustrate people into giving up their case or limit how much they pay out. Being just or fair isn’t their goal; saving and making money is.
During our days as defense lawyers, we used to represent insurance companies in personal injury lawsuits. While we excelled at our jobs, we decided we’d rather help people seeking compensation for their injuries rather than continue defending the corporations.
You Get Help from a Partner
Most law firms will introduce you to a partner at the beginning and then have a junior associate handle the actual case. This puts you at an immediate disadvantage because a new attorney will not have the legal proficiency and courtroom experience that a more accomplished attorney would when negotiating a settlement.
When you retain our services, one or all of our partners will work on your case every step of the way to ensure that you receive the benefit of our years of knowledge. Hiring an Orange County injury lawyer from our office means you’re getting the experience and knowledge you expect.
If you’ve been injured, we’ll evaluate your case:
- Car, truck, motorcycle, and boat accidents
- Premises liability, whether private or public property
- Medical malpractice
- Defective drugs
- Construction accident
- Defective Products
Broken Bones Can Qualify You for Compensation
Broken bones are easily some of the most common injuries to occur in accidents. An Orange County injury lawyer from our office can file a lawsuit on your behalf if you broke a bone after being injured in a construction accident, slip-and-fall, car accident, or any other type.
The severity of your break will determine the type of care you need and how much compensation you could receive. Broken bones have a number of different types:
- Compound and simple fractures
- Hairline cracks or stress fractures
- Buckled fractures or impacted fractures
- Crushed bones
- Open and closed breaks
If your broken bone has led to a permanent disability or you require ongoing physical therapy, you will be entitled to more compensation than if you recovered from your break without a problem. This makes it important to tell your Orange County injury lawyer about the full impact that your broken bone has had on your life and the expenses it has incurred.
Back Injuries After an Accident
Certain accidents are more likely to lead to back injuries than others, including the following:
- Car accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Construction accidents
Back injuries can lead to years of ongoing physical therapy, chiropractic care, and even surgery. Our Orange County injury lawyer will help you seek compensation to receive enough money to both pay for the care that you need today and cover your future medical expenses.
Many people make the mistake of settling their claim too quickly. Once you settle, you will not be able to pursue additional compensation from an insurance company or negligent party later. We will speak with your doctors to ensure that their recommendations for future medical care are included in any settlement negotiations.
A Traumatic Brain Injury Can Change Your Life
Concussions and other types of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) often occur during accidents. Medical malpractice, car accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, and construction accidents can all leave you with some form of head injury.
A traumatic brain injury can make it difficult to think or speak clearly and may also interfere with your cognitive abilities. Brain injuries are unpredictable, and while some may be recovered from, others lead to lifelong disabilities. An Orange County injury lawyer from our firm will handle your case with respect and ensure that any settlement you receive accounts for everything you’ve experienced, whether financial or emotional.
Defective Drugs Are Healthcare at Its Worst
Anytime medication is prescribed, you should be able to assume that the medicine you are taking will improve your health rather than harm it. Injuries caused by defective drugs can be some of the most distressing injuries of all as they represent a breach of trust.
Defective drugs can harm you and your family in many ways:
- Birth Defects – Many drugs aren’t properly tested for their effects on pregnant women, causing children to be born with birth defects.
- Internal Bleeding – Internal bleeding is difficult to detect early, so the condition can worsen substantially before you fully realize that something is wrong.
- Intense Pain – A common result of several defective drugs, intense pain can force you to undergo additional procedures or surgeries depending on precisely what is causing it.
If you are prescribed a medication but not fully told of all the potential complications associated with it, you can qualify for financial compensation. Whether your doctor, your pharmacist, or the drug’s manufacturer or distributor was at fault, an Orange County injury lawyer from our office will help you seek the justice and compensation you are due.
We Can Build Your Case
We will work diligently to gather the evidence necessary to build your case. Discovery is a critical process that must be thoroughly carried out for you to receive the maximum possible compensation. Your Orange County injury lawyer will seek to prove a number of key points:
- Someone else was negligent for your accident
- The accident led to your injuries
- You have suffered physical and financial harm due to your injuries
- The value of your current and future financial losses
Our Experience Can Work for You
While you do have a large number of attorneys to choose from in California, few have the inside experience we have from representing the insurance companies in the past. An Orange County injury lawyer from Dickson, Kohan & Bablove will know what to expect during the negotiations process and the trial that may come later.
