Fair Compensation For The Wrongfully Injured
If you were seriously injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, the insurance company will be quick to present you with a settlement that appears to cover your expenses. However, these initial offers typically fail to factor in the long-term costs associated with a serious injury. You deserve compensation for physical injuries and expenses including:
- Lost wages due to injuries
- Health care expenses
- Loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship
Motor vehicle accidents, serious side effects from medications and defective medical devices and injuries cause by unsafe conditions can lead to a lifetime of pain and ongoing medical expenses. At Berens & Miller, P.A., we get fair compensation for people who were seriously injured due to the negligence or careless acts of others.
