Your auto insurance company is a business with the goals of increasing profits and reducing costs. They are not representing your personal interest.
If your claim meets all of the elements of a medical malpractice case, you can sue the medical professional or entity who caused you harm -- including doctors, nurses, dentists, specialists, lab technicians, medical staff, physical therapists, hospitals and clinics.
In some cases, you may have a third party claim, which you can file even if you are receiving workers compensation. If you are unsure whether you have a valid claim, we can assess your case at a no-obligation, free consultation.
Your compensation may include past medical bills, costs of future medical treatments, lost wages, diminished earning capacity, disfigurement, disability and emotional distress.
Based upon the facts of your case, you might sue the designer of the product, manufacturer who produced it or the vender who inaccurately marketed it to you or failed to warn you of hazards associated with it.
