Burlington firm helping victims recover for their losses
The personal injury attorneys at Holt, Longest, Wall, Blaetz & Moseley have experience successfully helping injured clients recover just compensation for losses resulting from auto accidents, medical malpractice, unsafe products, dangerous drugs, slips and falls, and unsafe work conditions. We also represent people with workers compensation and Social Security disability claims.
Seeking just compensation for injuries:
All persons who operated a motor vehicle in the United States are required to have liability insurance. This insurance is a source of fund to compensate people who are injured and heirs of people who are killed by the negligence of other drivers. Similarly, most businesses carry premises insurance to compensate people who are injured by an act of negligence at the business.
Negligence in the operation of motor vehicle means that the driver breached a statutory or common-law duty by speeding, running a stop sign, passing illegally, drinking and driving, failing to yield the right of way, etc.
In order to form the basis for a cause of action for personal injury, the negligent act must be the proximate cause of injury or damage. "Proximate cause" is a cause which is natural, continuous, reasonably foreseeable, and direct.
Therefore, insurance companies defend based upon the contentions that:
-Our driver was not at fault.
-If our driver was at fault, he/she did not hurt you that badly.
-If our driver was at fault and if you were injured, then we are not responsible because you were at fault too (contributing negligence).
I have the experience to help you evaluate your claim, preserve evidence, and vigorously pursue compensation for your damages. Damages include your medical bills, pain and suffering, temporary or permanent disability, disfigurement and scars, lost wages, and fair market value of your property.
You can help yourself. Take photographs. Keep a journal. Save receipts. Seek qualified medical care. Do what your doctor tells you. Although your attorney cannot resolve your case until you have reached maximum medical improvement, the sooner you contact your attorney, the better.
