Personal injury litigation can seek monetary damages for a number of economic and non-economic damages sustained, including:
In order to win personal injury compensation, your attorney must show that another party’s negligence was the direct cause of your accident and resulting injuries. In legal terms, a defendant is negligent when they breach their duty of care to the plaintiff, or injured party. Examples include when a distracted driver rear-ends another vehicle, or a store owner fails to put up a “wet floor” sign after mopping, causing a customer to slip and fall. Without establishing clear liability, insurance companies will be reluctant to negotiate a settlement, or may deny a claim for damages.
Attorney Bart Bernard has the resources and expertise to uncover the truth, and discover who is really to blame in preventable “accidents” that result in life-shattering injury. If settlement negotiations turn sour, he is fully prepared to argue your case before a judge and jury.
