Seeking Legal Assistance in Personal Injury Cases

People face risks while at work, on the road or even in the privacy of our homes. When a risk results in an accident and an injury, the victim will probably require financial compensation. The law firm of Blanchard, Merriam, Adel & Kirkland is available to help the victims in such personal injury cases.

Understanding Tort Law
A tort is a negligent act that results in harm to another. The other party can be an individual, a group, a corporation or a government entity. Although the act may not constitute a crime, the victim can still take action against the wrongdoer in civil court. These are some of the circumstances that can result in civil action:

•Traffic crashes
•Workplace accidents
•Slips and falls
•Defective products
•Medical malpractice

Protecting Your Rights
In the event of an injury, the insurance company representing the wrongdoer may attempt to settle for less than the amount that is needed. There may even be an attempt to place the responsibility on the victim to avoid payment altogether. Our Florida personal injury attorneys are dedicated to putting the needs of their clients above the financial concerns of insurance companies. In tort cases, it is imperative that you consult with a lawyer before discussing the matter with an insurance company representative.

The Need for Compensation
After an accident, damages may be sought to cover medical expenses, to replace lost wages and to compensate for the pain and suffering related to the inflicted injury. In cases involving serious injury to or the death of a loved one, family members can seek damages to compensate for their suffering. In the event of an accident, seek the damages to which you may be entitled with the help of a personal injury attorney. This is the time to turn to the services available from the law firm of Blanchard, Merriam, Adel & Kirkland.
