Please take a moment to review the Important Information page. This will give you some advanced insight into the initial legal consultation process. Although we hope this information is helpful, nothing is better than face-to-face consultation with a lawyer who concentrates in serious cases involving long-term medical consequences.
When Horn Law is retained in a serious injury case, it is our job to find solutions to the immediate needs of my injured client, including, but not limited to medical, insurance, transportation, work-related, and comfort issues.
Second, we will take responsibility for all investigations. We will handle the insurance company and the claim adjuster assigned to your case. It is best that the investigation and early insurance communications be done as soon as practical.
Third, because you only have one opportunity for recovery, we have a responsibility to outline a strategy that will allow you to recover maximum compensation to cover your damages. Damages are the legal term for the dollar amount of your claim against the person who caused your injuries. Following are common damages in a case of serious injury:
- Medical Expenses
- Lost Income
- Transportation and Other Out-of-Pocket Expenses
- Pain, suffering, discomfort, and interference
- Emotional and mental distress
- Disability and loss of enjoyment of life
- Lost earning capacity
- Future losses, including future medical and life care needs
The pain caused by a serious injury is often great and can linger for a long time even after surgery is performed. In addition to physical pain, the anticipation of undergoing surgery can be traumatic on a victim and his or her loved ones.
Depending on the procedure required, a number of risks may also be associated with the surgery. Even if the surgery goes well, the surgeon may not be able to repair all problems. The injured person may have a permanent disability or chronic pain for the rest of his or her life.
