An Experienced Trial Attorney on Your Side
So often, serious injuries and wrongful death occur when something should have been done but was not. A trucker should have rested rather than pressed on without sleep. The proper diagnostic testing should have been ordered. A patient should have been monitored more closely after surgery. A corporation should have cared more about you than it did about the bottom line.
As a personal injury trial attorney, Gretchen has a comprehensive understanding of the law that affects your case. Some of the most complex areas in personal injury law deal with truck accidents, hospital negligence, and medical malpractice. Each is regulated by standards. Truckers and trucking companies must adhere to federal and state trucking regulations. Doctors, surgeons, nurses and other medical professionals must adhere to a standard of care. When regulated standards are overlooked or ignored altogether, the results can be catastrophic. Innocent people can be seriously injured. A family can lose a loved one in an unexpected moment.
As a trial attorney, Gretchen prepares each personal injury case as if it will go to trial. With 25 years of experience handling these cases, you may never see the courtroom with her. However, the insurance companies and corporations will know she is ready, willing and able to try your case. Gretchen will personalize your story to accurately convey what you have gone through. She seeks maximum compensation for your losses. She seeks enduring verdicts and settlements that allow you to adjust to new circumstances and obtain proper medical treatment.
