Maximizing Your Recovery In Personal Injury Claims

If you have been seriously injured, you need to have a knowledgeable attorney dealing with the insurance companies and court system on your behalf from the very beginning. Without early and thorough legal support, you could risk making a mistake that leaves you with high medical debt — and few legal options.

Our attorneys at Johnston, Stannard, Klesner, Burbidge & Fitzgerald, P.L.C., are ready to act quickly to help you, and we keep your best interests in mind. We understand that your health is the most important aspect of your life after a car crash or any other serious injury. Our team works hard to obtain the just and fair compensation you deserve for the areas of your life that have been negatively impacted by your injury.

You are more than just another case to us; your overall health and future are just as important as your case. We listen to you and discuss your case until we thoroughly understand the facts of your unique circumstances.

Lawyers Representing Your Needs

Insurance companies have many attorneys working for them. You need a legal team working to protect your rights after you have been injured in cases involving:

  • Car accident injuries
  • Medical malpractice and nursing home abuse
  • Defective products and dangerous medication
  • Hazardous property and premises liability
  • Civil claims for injuries from an assault or any other violent criminal act
  • Wrongful death

After an injury, you may be eligible for compensation to cover medical treatment, lost wages, property damage and estimated future medical costs. You might also be eligible for compensation for your pain and suffering. We give hands-on legal support to make sure you have the best chance of being able to afford the health care you need. Your spouse and/or children may be able to recover as well, depending on your unique facts and circumstances.

We can negotiate, mediate, settle and litigate for your benefit. Resolving the case out of court can be a good option, but many insurance companies do not offer fair compensation until a judge or jury demands it. Our team can evaluate settlements and represent your needs in trial as needed.
