Personal Injury

Experiencing an unwanted personal injury that affects your entire life can be devastating. The worst part is that it most likely was not your fault, yet you and your loved ones are left to deal with the consequences.

Whether you are no longer able to work and support your family, you are dealing with dangerous health issues, or you have medical bills piling up, personal injuries can be permanently life-altering.

Personal Injury Compensation

If you’ve suffered an injury due to the negligence of another, personal injury law entitles you to compensation to help with medical expenses and lost income. Personal injury law covers a broad range of incidents. The personal injury litigation attorneys at Simmons Hanly Conroy help people who have been injured in a broad range of incidents, which include:

  • Workplace and construction injuries
  • Auto accidents
  • Serious injuries
  • Cutting fluids

Why File a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

A personal injury settlement may cover your medical expenses.*

Healthcare costs can be very expensive over time. With medical bills piling up, a personal injury settlement has the potential to help you pay for the treatments you need and eliminate the worry that medical costs are draining your family budget and sending your family into debt.

A personal injury settlement can ensure the well-being of your family.

Nothing can ease the pain of an injury caused by someone else’s negligence, but a personal injury settlement has the power to ensure your family is taken care of for years to come. This is especially beneficial if your injury has made you unable to work.

It is time to hold those accountable for your injury responsible.

The bottom line is this: It is not your fault that you or a loved one was injured due to the negligence of someone else. You deserve to have your voice heard in the American legal system and see that those responsible for your pain are held accountable.

At the beginning of the litigation process, one of our personal injury lawyers or investigators will sit down with you to discuss your potential case. If it is decided that you are a good candidate for filing a personal injury lawsuit, our lawyers will file any necessary paperwork against the defendant and start the discovery period. During this time, both you and the defendant will be questioned as lawyers prepare for trial. Often a settlement is reached either at the end of the discovery period or during the early phases of the trial. If a case goes through the entire trial process, it will receive a jury verdict the defendant could appeal.

In most cases, a personal injury lawyer will charge a contingency fee, allowing the injured party to hire an experienced lawyer without having to pay any legal fees up front.

The lawyer’s fees will then be deducted from the final settlement in your case — or from the final verdict at trial.

The firm currently accepts cases involving burn injuries, dangerous drugs, toxic exposure, defective products, airplane accidents, manufacturing defects, distracted driving, intoxicated driving, driver error, traffic violations, poor road design or conditions, nitrate water contamination and cutting fluid diseases.

We cannot specify an amount because recovery results truly vary per client, depending on your unique circumstances. To get a better idea of what compensation you can expect, please contact one of our lawyers

While each case is unique, statute of limitation laws impose certain time limitations on how long one can wait to file a personal injury lawsuit until it is “too late.” Essentially, an individual only has a certain period of time after they are harmed by the negligence of another in which to file their claim.

The length of personal injury lawsuits vary. They can often take time, especially when they are being filed in a busy court system or they require extra investigation.
