Put Our Experience and Resources to Work for You
A serious injury can impact the life of an accident victim in many ways. People who have sustained paralysis or a traumatic brain injury, for example, may incur overwhelming medical costs and may require additional compensation for loss of earning capacity and necessary personal care assistance.
We seek full and fair compensation on behalf of our clients for past and future medical expenses, necessary rehabilitation or personal care assistance, pain and suffering, lost wages and other forms of available relief. To maximize our clients' opportunities for full and fair recoveries, we prepare each case for the possibility of trial.
We take time to thoroughly investigate the cause of accidents and gather evidence necessary to establish liability and prove damages. When necessary, we can enlist the service of expert witnesses to assist in the effective prosecution of personal injury claims. We have previously worked with accident reconstruction experts, engineers, medical experts, vocational experts, medical experts, life care planners and others expert witnesses.
We take time to listen to our clients so we can understand how their injuries have impacted their lives. There are a wide range of factors which we must consider:
- Has your ability to work been temporarily or permanently impaired?
- What type of medical services might you require in the future, and what might be the cost of such services?
- What parties are responsible for your injuries? Are there multiple responsible parties from whom compensation may be sought?
- Has your ability to enjoy life been adversely impacted? Are you unable to enjoy sports, hobbies or simple daily activities that you previously enjoyed?
- How can we best express to opposing counsel or a jury, if necessary, the extent of your injuries and loses?
By preparing thoroughly for trial, we send a strong message to the insurance companies that we are ready to fight for our clients in court if they are unwilling to make a fair settlement offer. As a result of our thorough case management and determined resolve to help the people we serve, we have helped many clients obtain significant recoveries by negotiated settlement agreements and verdicts. As a client of Brady & Jensen, you will have a caring and vigorous advocate on your side.
