Devastating Injuries

Personal injury law covers bodily injuries you suffer because of someone’s negligence or intentional misconduct. Our clients have suffered every conceivable type of bodily injury, including:

  • Broken bones
  • Burns
  • Head injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Compressed nerves
  • Soft-tissue injuries, such as sprains or strains
  • Internal organ damage
  • Internal bleeding

When you’ve been injured, you should immediately seek medical treatment from West Kendall Baptist or another nearby hospital. Our clients are more likely to improve if they receive prompt medical attention. Otherwise, their condition can deteriorate rapidly. For example, a fractured vertebra can cause incredible pain but might result in partial paralysis if not treated promptly.

Avoid Negotiating With Insurers on Your Own

If a driver struck you because they were negligent or reckless, you could sue them for compensation. Many insurers try to quickly settle claims before you are fully aware of the extent of your injuries or of the amount of money it will take to treat those injuries. Insurers are anxious to finalize settlements so that they can forget about your case. If an insurer contacts you, remember the following:

  • Do not admit responsibility for the crash. Doing so will only serve to reduce the amount of financial compensation you can receive. Instead, say you need to talk to an attorney before giving a claims adjuster your version of events.
  • Avoid giving too much detail about your injuries. You probably do not yet know the extent of your injuries, so there is no reason to minimize them when talking to an insurance agent.
  • Never sign anything. Legal documents are complicated, and insurance agents have no desire to explain your rights and obligations to you. If you are given a piece of paper to sign, put it to the side and tell the agent that you need to talk to a lawyer.
  • Put the phone down and contact a lawyer. Only a lawyer has your best interests at the forefront of their mind. Insurance agents are looking out for their bottom line, not your well-being.

Gerson & Schwartz has the legal experience to understand how to make a compelling claim for financial compensation. Trust us to act as your go-between with the claims adjuster and to negotiate on your behalf.
