Serious Injury Attorney Orange County
As an Orange County serious injury attorney, we work with clients that have suffered incredible amounts of physical damage due to being in a car crash. Lawyers at DKB can easily recognize the difference between standard injuries and ones that should be taken far more seriously. Our objective is to build a strong case and get you the compensation you deserve, so whether you have whiplash or broken bones makes no difference to us. We will represent you with the same level of integrity and passion regardless.
Ways that a Serious Injury Can Impact Your Life
Serious injuries can have both immediate and long-term consequences. Most car accident injuries like whiplash, will cause significant pain and irritation for the first several months and then the pain will decrease to the point that normal activity becomes possible. Even if the improvements are gradual and it takes a year or two, complete healing or close to it, can take place. However, with a serious injury, the damage can be so severe that it is impossible to return to life as it was prior to the accident. Some of the ways serious injuries have impacted our clients are –
An inability to go back to the same position at work.
Some injuries create permanent restrictions. For example, people that once worked in construction may only be able to work at a desk job where they are sitting down for most of the day. When mobility is restricted, or there is a form of paralysis, that does not always mean you are entirely disabled, but your life will change.
An inability to work at all.
As an Orange County serious injury attorney, we help people that have suffered such severe injuries that they can no longer work. This can be due to intense pain, partial or full paralysis, the need to undergo constant surgeries and procedures, etc. There are many reasons that work can become impossible and if it has you should seek compensation for your lost wages.
The need for medical procedures on an ongoing basis.
Having to visit the doctor on a regular basis can negatively impact your life. This often creates the need to take time off of work which costs both time and money. Any recovery from the procedures or medical care can also cause life disruptions. In this way, serious injuries tend to create lasting consequences for a victim and their families.
How an Orange County Serious Injury Attorney Can Help You
When we work with a client who has suffered a significant injury, we are always looking at the situation for what it is today but with an eye on the future. We want to know how your injuries are currently impacting you, the medical care you are receiving, what it is costs, etc. We also want to know what life will be like for you in the future and this is something that your doctor can help us to determine. Our goal is to determine what your injuries will cost you for a lifetime so this must include all medical expenses and potential lost wages. For example, if you had to cut your hours to part time, the wages you have lost to date and the wages you will lose for the duration of your career should be included in your request for financial compensation.
As an attorney, we can –
- Build your case by gathering evidence.
- Work to value your claim and to maximize it.
- Negotiate with the insurance companies.
- Help you to receive the proper medical care.
- File a lawsuit and represent you in court.
- Protect your rights.
Benefits of Working with an Orange County Serious Injury Attorney
We have experience handling these types of cases and know what things to consider that many, less experienced attorneys, may be unaware of. For example, when trying to value your claim, we will look at every detail, like whether or not you can drive. If you cannot, there should be money allocated to you for hiring a taxi or other specialized mode of transportation. Our experience leads us to leave no stone unturned so that you can receive the maximum compensation possible.
