Get The Compensation You Deserve
In today’s world it is not enough for an attorney to know how to review a medical record, file a demand or complain and expect to be able to maximize the money the client deserves. Today an attorney must know about a wide range of traumatic injuries. This would include details relating to causation analysis for the injury, the clinical examination for the injury, the various diagnostic test procedures used on the injury, the underlying differential diagnosis of the injury and the prognosis for the injury. Bob and his staff have handled cases involving traumatic injuries to nearly every part of the body. The most common include severe brain injury
and related head injuries, neck injuries, mid and low back injuries, shoulder injuries, knee injuries and ankle and foot injuries. Diagnostic testing for these injuries after a clinical evaluation range from simple X-rays to CT scans, MRI’s and more. Treatment for these injuries often starts with physical therapy and medications. If this doesn’t succeed in getting you back to work and your normal activities, you may need further medical attention including: epidural injections, trigger point injections, arthroscopic surgery, open surgery, long term pain management and more. Bob and his staff have handled cases involving most every injury and treatment that results from car accidents and work injuries.
Car Accidents caused by distracted or intoxicated drivers is all too common place on our roadways. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there are over 10 million car crashes in the United States each year resulting in nearly 36 thousand deaths. In addition, there are on average 3 million people injured annually, with 2 million permanent injuries. This means that every 12 minutes a person dies in a car crash and every 14 seconds a person is injured. These injuries are of epidemic proportion in this country and state.
According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration there are over 5,000 deaths and 78,000 injuries related to trucking accidents each year in the U.S. The problem with a crash involving a large truck is that more often the individuals in the car sustain serious injuries or worse, death. Bob and his staff know how to go right to work digging through the pile of evidence that is needed to hold the truck driver's liable for the injuries they cause and get the most amount of money the law allows.
All too often motorcycle accidents produce serious injuries. Motorcyclists are 35 times more likely to be involved in a deadly accident on the road than car passengers. In most cases, the motorcyclist is not at fault. Almost 90,000 motorcyclists are injured annually and over 5,000 result in death with head injury being the leading cause of death. The National Highway Traffic Safety Institute reported that 42% of fatal motorcycle crashes involved a car turning left while the motorcycle was going straight, passing, or overtaking the vehicle.
