A sudden and unexpected personal injury is an earth-shattering event in more ways than one. First, the victim must deal with the intense pain and suffering that usually acoompanies a serious injury. There is usually significant financial stress as well. While the victim is unable to work, high medical bills begin to tumble in. While all this is going on, the insurance comnpany calls almost constantly to demand a settlement.
At Carlson & Jones, our Brainerd Personal Injury Lawyers we help families through tough times like these. We connect victims with top area physicians. We also run interference with the insurance company. Above all, we collect compelling evidence for a damages claim in court. Substantial compensation is available to most accident victims. But to claim it, these individuals must have assertive and experienced attorneys.
Most car accidents and other such incidents are not really “accidents.” Early 1900s factory owners first called job injuries “industrial accidents” to shift blame for these incidents onto the workers. The word has stuck ever since. But most injuries occur due to someone else’s negligence. Some examples include:
Damages in these cases typically include compensation for both economic losses, such as medical bills, and noneconomic losses, such as pain and suffering. Additional punitive damages may be available as well, in some cases.
At Carlson & Jones, our Brainerd Personal Injury Lawyers are highly experienced in negligence cases, and there is simply no substitute for experience in these kinds of cases. Since we know the law so well, we quickly evaluate your claim and recommend a course of action. Later, when the claim goes to court, we know all the procedural rules in Crow Wing County and nearby jurisdictions. That includes all the unwritten rules.
Since we handle so many injury cases, we also have the resources necessary to provide maximum compensation. These resources include private investigators who uncover key bits of evidence that first responders may have overlooked. We also have access to accident reconstructionists who can take the pieces of a car crash jigsaw puzzle and put together a clear picture for the jury. Finally, our staff includes paralegals and other professionals whose commitment to your case and attention to detail truly make a difference.
Most of all, we fight for you. Our aggressive lawyers accept nothing less than the best possible outcome under the circumstances.
If you were hurt in Brainerd because of someone else’s negligence, the first few hours after the incident are often critical. To maximize your chances for fair compensation, it’s important to do some things, and refrain from doing other things, during this period:
In the wake of an injury, refrain from excessive posts on social media and do not discuss details of the incident with friends. At Carlson & Jones, P.A., we want to be your Brainerd personal injury lawyers of choice. Call us today at (218) 789-4515 for your free case evaluation.
