Experienced and Successful Mobile Personal Injury Attorney
It is true that “accidents happen,” and not all accidents are somebody else’s fault. Yet when an injury occurs solely because of another person’s negligence or misconduct, the responsible party can and should be held responsible for the harm caused to the injury victim. It would be unjust for the injured victim to be further victimized by having to bear the costs of medical care and deal with the pain and suffering and consequences of missing work, all because another person or company did not use the proper amount of care and attention to avoid a preventable accident. Obtaining justice for the injury victim is not always easy, but at the Law Office of Gary W. Fillingim, we are dedicated to obtaining a successful result that fully compensates the injured individual for the harm done to them. Our comprehensive personal injury practice helps people injured in all of the following types of accidents, among others (click on a topic for more information):
- Car Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Workplace Accidents
- Defective Product
- Slip and Fall
- Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect
- Brain Injuries
- Wrongful Death
Why you need an attorney for your personal injury claim, and how Gary W. Fillingim can help
Most often the negligent party is covered by liability insurance, so rather than dealing directly with the responsible party, the insurance company takes over and represents their insured in any settlement negotiations or litigation. Insurance adjusters and insurance company defense lawyers deal with car accidents and other personal injury claims every day. They are experts at knowing how much a claim is truly worth and in manipulating you to take a lesser amount. If a case goes to trial, they do their best to deny their own liability and instead make you look like the negligent or responsible party, in which case you will not be able to recovery any compensation in court. They will also downplay the serious nature and extent of your injuries, claiming that you are exaggerating your injuries, or that they were not caused by the accident but in some other way.
Persons unrepresented by an attorney are never offered a settlement amount that approaches the true value of their claim. However, when the insurance company sees that you are represented by a tough, experienced attorney who has a record of achieving sizable settlements and results at trial, they are much more likely to deal fairly with you upfront, to avoid having to go to court. Gary Fillingim is an attorney who has that reputation and those results. He knows how much your claim is worth and won’t be fooled or worn down by an insurance company’s deceptive or delaying tactics. Gary Fillingim will fully litigate your case until a fair settlement is reached, or he will take your case to court for a jury verdict that reflects your needs. Our office fights for the full amount of legal damages in your case, including past medical expenses and future medical care, lost income from time you missed from work or if you are disabled from working, your pain and suffering and emotional distress, and more.
