In addition to proving liability, you must also prove the value of your case, or damages to which you are entitled. Among the many elements which can be considered in determining damages are the nature and extent of your injury; the type of medical treatment you have received or will require in the future; the amount of your medical bills; your lost wages or earnings; your pain and suffering and disability. Our law firm knows how to properly present your doctor to testify at trial; your family or friends to testify about the impact of your injuries; and your employer to testify about your job duties, lost wages and benefits.
These cases can be complex, and filled with unknown challenges to the unsuspecting. Giving a statement to an insurance adjuster, for example, can result in a denial of your claim, or minimize the damages to which you may be entitled.

Premises liability accidents can occur at work, at church, at community events or shopping among other locaions. As guests at these places, it is not reasonable to think that we can be aware of all the potential hazards on the property. Personal injury at any of these places falls into the legal category of premises liability.
Premises liability refers to accidents that happen to a guest or trespasser and take place on another’s property. These premises include homeowners and business owners, and the injuries usually result from an unsafe condition on the land due to the negligence of the owner or some failure to warn of the dangers. Landowners retain varying degrees of responsibility towards their visitors, depending on the category of law into which the visitors fall: invitee, licensee or trespasser. These categories are usually determined by the nature of the visit -- whether it is for commercial or social purposes, whether it is by invitation or an intrusion.
To determine liability, inquiries will be made into the creation of the hazard, the length of time the hazard has existed, whether the landowner knew of the hazard or whether the landowner should have know of the hazard.
