If you’re injured and it wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to compensation. When you’re hurt, pain colors everything in your life. An injury can prevent you from working, cause you suffering, and cost thousands of dollars for treatment.
You don’t have to suffer in silence.
Your case begins with an analysis of the cause of injuries and a determination of whether negligence was involved. Negligence is a breach of duty owed to another person, resulting in damages. Negligence can come all sorts of things, from failing to control a dog, to creating a car wreck, or even having a dangerous premises. Anywhere and anytime someone is careless and causes injury–that’s a red flag for negligence.
The focus is on getting better.
You should do everything you can to heal, get back on your feet, and be treated. The attorney should focus on trying to arrange payment for you. Often this involves negotiating with insurance companies and working with treating physicians and other care givers. In many cases, payment for their services can be deferred pending the outcome of the case.
For personal injury cases, the attorney is paid on a contingency fee basis. If there is no recovery, you are not responsible for any attorney fees. If there is a recovery, the attorney receives a percentage of the amount recovered. Attorney fees do not include costs in the case, which are your responsibility.

“Amazing Lawyer! One never wants to be involved in a lawsuit, but if you haven’t a choice, get a great lawyer. Ken represented me well. He kept me informed and walked me thru the quagmire. Do not want to do it again, but I absolutely would hire the same lawyer.”
