Experienced New Port Richey Personal Injury Attorney Fights for the Compensation You Deserve After an Accident Leaves You Injured
Aggressive legal representation levels the playing field against insurance companies
Even small accidents can have life-changing consequences. You can roll through a green light and be blind-sided by a moving van, resulting in chronic pain or even paralysis. You can visit a friend and be attacked by their usually “friendly” dog, leaving you with extensive scarring. You can go shopping and slip on a spill that someone failed to clean, causing a serious head injury that impairs your long-term cognitive function and mobility.
Accidents can happen anywhere and at any time. They are almost always caused by someone else’s negligence, and if you are seriously injured in an accident, you deserve to be compensated for your medical bills and more. An experienced New Port Richey personal injury attorney is your best ally after an accident resulting in injury.
Most people do not have the assets to cover that compensation, which is why they carry insurance to protect them. Those insurance companies have a team of high-powered lawyers working to minimize their liability in paying your claim. The New Port Richey personal injury attorneys at the law firm of Carlson, Meissner, Hart & Hayslett P.A. offer you the same tough legal representation, helping you to level the playing field against the insurance companies and get the compensation you deserve.
Types of personal injury cases we handle
Although most people think of auto accidents when they think of personal injury, there are many other types of accidents that can cause devastating injuries and long-lasting consequences. Our New Port Richey personal injury attorneys have experience in all types of personal injury cases, including:
Auto accidents — A large portion of our personal injury cases stem from auto accidents. Even seemingly minor fender benders can result in long-term injuries, such as chronic pain or limited mobility. The severity of the accident is not what’s important — it’s how the accident affected you.
Motorcycle accidents — Riding a motorcycle makes you more vulnerable on the road, and your injuries are likely to be much more significant.
Truck accidents — Truck accident victims are likely to suffer more serious injuries due to the size and momentum of the truck.
Slip and fall — A slip and fall accident can happen almost anywhere – grocery or retail stores, restaurants and hotels. Slip and fall accidents can also happen at work or in a public space such as a sidewalk or parking lot.
Premises liability — If you have been injured on someone else’s property. whether a home or a business, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Property owners have a responsibility to maintain a level of safety to ensure visitors are not injured while on their property.
Dog bites — Dog bites can be serious and cause substantial damage, especially to children. If you have been the victim of a dog bite, our New Port Richey personal injury attorneys can help you recover compensation.
Workers’ compensation — On-the-job injuries can take a toll not only on your health, but your future earnings ability.
After an accident, insurance companies will be quick to deny your claim, or offer a settlement for your injuries. Do not listen to the insurance company if they tell you that you have no claim, and do not accept a settlement if it is offered. Remember that insurance companies try to minimize the amount it pays you. Trust an experienced New Port Richey personal injury attorney to fight for the full compensation you deserve.
What type of compensation can you recover for injuries?
The costs of a personal injury are far more wide-ranging than you might think, and the compensation you receive may include:
Medical care — Often, injuries require both immediate and long-term medical care. Medical care may continue long after your accident, including at-home care.
Property damage — Damage to your automobile and other personal items.
Lost wages — Wages for time misses at work or future time you are expected to miss as a result of your injuries.
Pain and suffering — Due to the nature of your accident and injuries, pain and suffering may also be factored into compensation received.
