Do you Have a Personal Injury Case?

Most personal injury cases are based on the legal concept of negligence. But first you will need to determine if you or your loved one suffered an personal injury to your or your loved one's body. If you or your loved one did suffer a personal injury, a doctor will need to determine the extent of the personal injuries and treat those injuries with conservative medical treatment.  The next issue to be addressed in a personal injury case is whether your injuries were caused by someone’s failure to exercise their duty of care in regard to your safety and well-being. At the Carabin Shaw, our personal injury attorneys can meet with you on a one-on-one basis in order to properly evaluate and discuss the specifics of the personal injury loss. Once our personal injury attorneys have properly evaluated and determine what is involved with your personal injury loss we will make recommendation to you on the same.  Our personal injury attorneys will decide what is needed to win and whether we need to retain and hire a private investigator or an expert witnesses to provide further evidence in support of your claim or loss. At each point in the process, our team of trained personal injury staff members will explain what is needed, the game plan, how we will address any pending issues and we will take the time necessary to make sure you understand the strategies and the process.

The Cost of Taking on a Major Corporation or Insurance Company on a Personal Injury Case

At the Carabin Shaw, our personal injury lawyers only are paid attorney fees if we are successful on your case.  We are paid a a percentage of the recovered award or settlement, as long as we obtained a recovery in our client's favor. If for what ever reason, no recovery is obtained or for some reason we fail to win your case, you are not obligated to pay our Law Firm any attorneys’ fees or expenses. If additional resources are needed, we will discuss how they could help win your case and the difference or improvement that they could mean in terms of your case’s success. We won’t make a decision of incurring large expense, out of our pocket, on your case without first consulting our clients regarding whether the additional resources should be expended on your behalf.

What if You Can no Longer Work After a Personal Injury Loss

As a full service personal injury law firm, our Law Firm represents clients in cases involving Social Security Disability (SSD) claims and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. Additionally, in some cases we can make some advances to the client for some of their necessary living expenses. If your injuries result in long-term disability, we will work with your doctors in documenting your medical condition for the purposes of working to obtain social security benefits and/or a good recovery from the responsible party.
