The aftermath of a serious injury may affect many aspects of one’s life. In addition to physical pain and disability, an injured person often faces loss of income and staggering medical bills, not to mention disruptions to daily life and a myriad of emotional consequences.
When the injury was caused by another party, our legal system provides a mechanism for victims to recover damages for their injuries. At Nazette, Marner, Nathanson & Shea, LLP, our attorneys support clients through the difficult process of pursuing financial damages for personal injury. While we recognize that no amount of compensation can replace lost health or a lost loved one, we work diligently to see that our clients are made as whole as possible by the legal process.
Evaluation and Preparation of Personal Injury Cases
We offer clients thorough and candid evaluations of their cases, including strengths and weaknesses. If there is merit to pursuing a recovery, we apprise clients of the steps in the legal process so they are aware of what to expect. We are familiar with many types of injury cases and their effects, enabling us to help our clients anticipate the short- and long-term needs they may have. Our attorneys work to help clients identify their goal for the legal process, be it a swift, reasonable settlement or the highest possible award of damages at trial. With the client’s goal in mind, our attorneys diligently prepare the case.
Though many personal injury cases settle, we prepare every case as if it is going to trial. Our attorneys and staff pride themselves on attention to detail. We thoroughly investigate the circumstances of each injury, diligently gather evidence, and carefully interview witnesses. Our meticulous preparation of every case contributes not only to a strong record of success at trial, but to more favorable settlement offers from opposing parties prior to trial.
We know that our clients rely on us not only for our legal expertise, but for our compassion and support at a time of personal and financial difficulty. We regularly represent clients in the following types of cases:
