Accidents happen to us all, but that doesn’t mean you should be the one to pay the price when another person is responsible for yours. Personal injury law exists for this exact reason. When you, your spouse, your child, or another relative gets hurt in an accident caused by someone else’s mistake or bad judgment, you have the right to hold them legally and financially responsible. That way, it’s their insurance covering your medical bills, time off work and other such expenses caused by the accident.

Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Many people hesitate to call a lawyer — mostly because no one wants to be involved in a situation that requires a lawyer in the first place. However, with an experienced personal injury attorney in your corner, the process of recovering your due payment becomes much simpler in two key ways:

1. You can relax and focus on what matters.

While we deal with the insurance company, you can rest, recover and breathe easier knowing that we’ve got your case covered. After all, we know from experience how to recognize a fair deal, we aren’t afraid to push for more and insurance adjusters know they can’t get away with lowballing you when we’re the ones handling the negotiations.

2. You pay us nothing unless we win.

The nice thing about personal injury cases is that we work on contingency. In other words, you don’t owe us anything unless we win your case. Once we do, we simply take a portion of the payment we have recovered on your behalf.



What Kind of Injury Cases Do You Take?

At Thomas & Bayes-Weiner, LLC, we can handle just about any injury case you bring through our door. Those we have listed below are simply the case types with which we have the most experience:

  • Auto Accidents, including those that involve cars, trucks, pedestrians, motorcycles, bicycles, and semi-trucks.

  • Premises Liability, which entails any injury you sustain as a result of a property owner’s negligence. For instance, if you slip and fall on a wet floor or icy sidewalk, or if you are bitten by a dog, you can file a personal injury claim against the person who owns that property (or animal).

  • Children’s Injuries, whether caused by a playground accident, car wreck, defective product or toy, or another incident altogether.

It’s Okay to Stake Your Claim

Depending on the circumstances that led to your accident, pursuing legal action may not be your first instinct. For instance, if you slipped and fell on a relative’s driveway or were bitten by a neighbor’s dog, you may feel like it’s best to let it go in order to keep things friendly. However, let us remind you that insurance exists for a reason. Don’t think for a moment that you have to swallow the costs of your recovery when there is a legal system in place to get you compensated by the insurance company of the responsible person or business. For our part, we will do everything we can to help you get what you need with as little stress as possible.
