Injured Due to do Another’s Negligence? Adams Law Can Help
Greater Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky Injury Lawyers
When you are injured in an accident, it can have minor to devastating effects on your life. If you are rear-ended in a car accident, you may suffer from whiplash and back pain and be able to fully recover with a few visits to your doctor or chiropractor. But if your doctor performs the wrong kind of procedure on you, it could affect how you function for the rest of your life and cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills and lost wages.
No matter what type of accident you or a loved one was involved in, the personal injury attorneys at Adams Law are here to help you. We understand that your priority is getting the medical care you need after an accident so you can focus on your recovery. It’s too stressful to add legal proceedings on top of that when you need to put all your mental, physical, and emotional efforts into getting better.
Our personal injury lawyers will handle all the legal aspects of your case including communicating with insurance carriers, assessing the extent of your financial damages, collecting witness statements and evidence, finding expert witnesses for medical malpractice cases, reaching out to all the involved parties, and coming up with a strategy to recover the compensation you deserve.
We will take every necessary step to ensure you are compensated for your medical expenses, as well as pain and suffering, lost wages, long-term care needs, and any additional losses you have suffered.
While a car accident or slip and fall can be straightforward, complex insurance disputes such as disability and wrongful death claims can be a bit more complicated. Our experienced Ohio and Kentucky personal injury lawyers have handled cases that can be resolved fairly quickly as well as those that can take several months or several years to conclude. We are willing to work on your case for as long as it takes to reach a favorable outcome and ensure your expenses and damages are covered.
Why Work With a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Let’s say you get into an accident and the next day, your insurance provider calls you to offer you a settlement to pay for your expenses. This settlement is likely going to be for much less than you deserve since insurance companies are usually not interested in paying plaintiffs a fair amount.
Instead of accepting the amount, you could work with a personal injury lawyer who will get you the right compensation to cover your expenses.
These may include:
- Medical expenses, like doctor’s visits, prescriptions, and medical equipment
- Loss of wages if you had to take time off work to visit the doctor or lost your job because of the severity of your injury
- Pain and suffering you may have endured because of your injuries
- Long-term care needs if you have a serious injury and need to hire a caregiver and/or change your home environment to fit your needs
- Permanent impairment of your ability to earn an income
One of our personal injury attorneys can advise you on how to proceed with your case. For instance, they will let you know that right after an accident, you need to go to the doctor and get X-rays and other necessary medical procedures done so you have a record that you sought out treatment. They will also ask you if you have any evidence, such as pictures of the scene of the accident and/or witness statements, and if you have contact information for other parties involved, such as a business owner or a driver.
Typically, a personal injury lawyer will work with the insurance company and any other defendants in an attempt to settle your case for an amount that will cover your healthcare costs and any other expenses or damages. They will aggressively negotiate on your behalf before resorting to court since this can lengthen the legal process and may not turn out in your favor. Instead, they will attempt to reach a settlement that you are happy with. If that is not possible, only then should you resort to court.
Unless you’re a personal injury attorney, you don’t know the ins and outs of personal injury law, how to negotiate with the other parties, what kinds of damages you’re eligible for, what legal language to use, and how to file the right paperwork for your case. A personal injury lawyer will work all of that out for you, so you don’t have added stress at this already challenging time.
Our Personal Injury Practice Areas
Here at Adams Law, we’ve been helping our clients solve their legal issues for more than 125 years. We are transparent and open with our clients, and work with them hand in hand to get them the compensation they need for their injuries.
In terms of personal injury practice areas, we can assist you with the following.
Manufacturers have a legal obligation to provide customers with safe and usable products. When they do not, and that results in an injury, we can step in to help, invoking state laws in Kentucky and Ohio to assist our clients.
The type of product defects that you may come across are design defects, where something in the design is unsafe, manufacturing defects, where errors happen when a product is assembled or manufactured, and marketing defects, where products are marked wrong or fail to include adequate safety warnings or instructions. The responsible parties may include the product manufacturer, the wholesaler, the retail store that sold the product, the manufacturer who made the parts for the product or someone who installs a product.
When a professional fails to deliver on services promised to a buyer/client, then they could be in violation of the law. If they don’t uphold their duty of care to you, then you might be able to bring about a professional negligence case to prove they are in violation of your agreement and recover any damages incurred.
Premises Liability/Slip and Fall
If you’re walking outside on someone’s property and you suddenly slip and fall and injure yourself, you could have a premises liability/slip and fall case on your hands. Our personal injury attorneys have what it takes to prove that a party was negligent and because of their negligence, you got hurt. The responsible parties could include a landlord, a business owner, a maintenance company, or a snow removal company.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Motor vehicle accidents happen all the time. Today, unfortunately, distracted driving is a major cause of these accidents. Our personal injury attorneys at Adams Law will look at all the details of a car accident case to determine who was responsible for the accident and would have to cover medical expenses. We may end up bringing a lawsuit against the other driver and/or their insurance company to recover compensation for you.
While cars can cause a lot of damage, trucks are even more dangerous. Distracted, tired, or aggressive truckers can cause serious injuries to other drivers on the road. We will examine all the facts of a truck accident case and see if claims against the driver, their employer, and/or their insurance provider are possible.
The workplace should be a comfortable and productive environment for employees. When it is not, and employees have to deal with issues like sexual harassment, wrongful termination, invasion of privacy, and emotional distress, we can help them prove what happened and bring legal action against their employer to recover money damages.
Workplaces, particularly ones involving physical labor, can be very dangerous environments. Our personal injury lawyers will take on these cases, looking at the details of them and deciding whether to pursue a workers’ compensation claim or start a lawsuit against an employer.
When a doctor prescribes you the wrong medication, performs a surgery incorrectly, or otherwise harms you instead of helps you, we can investigate and advise you on whether or not a medical malpractice case is likely to be successful. These cases can be difficult to prove, but our experienced personal injury attorneys will look at every angle and determine whether legal action is an option for you. We’ll also find expert witnesses like other doctors and medical professionals to help prove your case, which is crucial in a medical malpractice suit.
Dog bites can cause serious damage. If a dog bit and/or attacked you and you suffered injuries, then we can step in and help you prove your case as well as have your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering covered.
Wrongful death applies when someone’s negligence caused another party to die. If you believe your loved one died as a result of negligence, then we can look into your situation and determine whether or not their medical expenses, funeral costs, pain and suffering, future lost income, and other expenses could be compensated.
