Personal injury cases arise from the negligence or carelessness of others. Common examples are automobile accidents and falls. If the negligence of another has impacted your life, you may be entitled to compensation.
At Liberty Oak, we understand that a personal injury claim is about more than just money. Shortly after his daughter's birth, our attorney Joseph DuBois suffered a debilitating back injury. The injury affected him in all aspects of his life and his family. Joe was unable to pick up his baby girl and his ability to perform basic chores around the house and yard was severly limited. After over a year of doctors' appointments, MRIs, chiropractic treatments, physical therapy, and steroid injections which did little to relieve his constant pain, Joe elected to have spinal fusion surgery. We understand how a personal injury affects a person physically, mentally, and emotionally. We understand how the injured person's family and friends are affected. Because of our direct and very personal experience, we are now better advocates for our injured clients.
Before hiring an attorney, be sure you ask how many cases the attorney has filed in court and carried through trial. Many personal injury claims are settled prior to trial; however, should the insurance company refuse to offer you the amount of money you deserve for your case, be certain the attorney you hire has the experience and the ability to file your case in court and to take your case to a jury to obtain the justice you rightfully deserve. Our attorneys will not attempt to convince you to settle against your wishes and stand ready and willing to take your case to court, if necessary.
