You may face chronic headaches, memory loss, impaired motor skills, depression, mood swings, and many other serious effects. Our brain injury lawyers have more than a decade of experience helping clients recover full financial compensation for brain injuries caused by someone else’s negligence.

We work actively on our clients behalf to ensure that s/he receives the best recovery possible in the least amount of time.
Severe burns: Burns are one of the most serious and painful types of injuries. Burns can be caused by many factors including fires, explosions, gas tank explosions or other situations involving the liability of companies. Our burn injury lawyers work actively on our clients behalf to ensure that they receive the best results possible in the least amount of time.
Amputations: When amputation occurs as the result of a negligent employer or third party, the accident victim is left with a lot of emotional and physical pain and a permanent sense of loss. With the unfortunate spread of superbugs, any cut or laceration from an accident can result in an infection such as MERSA, staph infections and gangrene.
Multiple bone fractures: If you have sustained a fracture in an accident that was due to someone else’s negligence, you may be able to receive compensation. Just because the injury is a fracture and fractures are not always considered serious, that doesn’t mean you cannot receive compensation for the medical expenses that were not your fault or the time you missed at work. The attorneys at Ammons Law can help.
Construction accidents: Most construction sites by nature include many dangerous elements that hold the potential for injury. Heavy equipment and machinery, scaffolding, uncompleted buildings — these elements and more create a potentially unsafe workplace. After being injured in a construction accident, it is vitally important to contact an attorney as soon as possible.
Swimming pool accidents and drowning: The aftermath of a swimming pool accident is terrible for the victim and the victim’s friends and family. What starts as a fun and relaxing day around the pool can turn into a disaster. If you or a family member is the victim of a swimming pool accident or a loved one is killed in a swimming pool drowning get in touch with an experienced swimming pool accident attorney as early as possible.
Injuries caused by defects in consumer products: If you have been injured by a defective product, keep the product. Do not throw it away or send it back to the manufacturer. The product will have to be independently tested and analyzed to prove it was defective, and without the product itself, it is very difficult to bring a claim. If you or a loved one has been injured by a defective product, it may be possible to get compensation for the resulting medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
To learn if you do indeed have a injury case the first step is to get in touch with a injury lawyer . In general, you and your injury attorney will have to prove three things in order to recover in a personal injury case: that you suffered damages, that the defendant was negligent, and that the defendant’s negligence caused your damages. Even if you have a valid claim, though, your injury attorney will have to investigate whether or not you would be able to collect on your claim. If the other party does not have insurance or other assets, then it may be that you have a valid claim but will not be able to collect on it.
First, look for a law firm that has experience working with and winning the kind of case you will be pursuing. Whether you are the victim of an SUV rollover, post-collision fire or product defect you deserve an attorney who knows how to win for you.

The monetary value of your injury claim depends on any number of issues. For instance, a case’s value is influenced by the nature and extent of your personal injuries; the amount of your medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and other financial losses; pain and suffering; and present and future disability. However, even taking those conditions into consideration there are significant differences in the amount of money a plaintiff can expect to actually collect. This is based on the amount of coverage offered by an insurance company, or the assets of the defendant. Other factors influencing collection including any partial fault on the part of the injured person, the amount of time the victim(s) choose(s) to spend with litigation versus a quick settlement. There is no way for any injury attorney to accurately predict the value of any personal injury case. However, an experienced injury lawyer should be able to consider the particular factors that weigh into your case and give you an overall picture of what to expect in general terms.
The primary goal of most insurance companies is to protect their bottom line- not your particular interests. The lifeblood of any insurance company is to take in as many premiums as they can while paying out as few claims as they can. Many insurance company employees are trained to minimize or deny your claim as quickly as possible. Representatives from insurance companies use a variety of tools to do this sometimes even pretending to be on your side and want to help you get your claim resolved quickly. A good injury lawyer will negotiate with the insurance companies as your representative and either work with-or against-them depending on what your claim needs.
