When a person has been catastrophically injured or killed due to the negligence of another, unfortunately the only remedy available in court is money damages. The law allows for the recovery of special damages such as medical bills, lost wages or funeral bills.
In a personal injury case, the law also allows the jury to award general damages such as pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, disfigurement, and in a death case, the value of the decedent’s life to the decedent. If you have a serious accident or death case, it is important for you to hire a competent and experienced personal injury lawyer.

Insurance companies use a number of tricks to diminish the amount of the settlement the insurer will have to pay you. One of the first and most devastating practices is to keep you from hiring an experienced personal injury attorney. The insurance company does not want you to get an attorney because it wants the adjuster to be able to “control” the claim.
Adjusters’ performance is rated, in part, on whether they lost control of the claim by having the injured person hire an attorney. To “control” the claimant, claims adjusters will act friendly to build rapport with the injured person so they can gather information which may be used against them later, such as taking a recorded statement. The insurance company would prefer you to remain unrepresented because they know that unrepresented persons receive lower settlements than represented plaintiffs.
This is why it is vital for you to hire an experienced law firm such as The Hendon Law Firm, as early as possible. Do not wait it is too late to hire a lawyer because you may become a victim twice.
