Morris County Back Injury Attorney Serving All of New Jersey
Spine, neck and back injuries can be extremely serious, affecting all parts of the body and functioning. But the condition is not always easy to diagnose immediately.
If you have been injured in a slip and fall on ice or other accident, see a doctor, then contact The Law Office of Francis M. Smith, Esq. I represent injured clients throughout counties that include Sussex County, Union County, Morris County and Hunterdon County.
Slip-and-fall accidents on ice and snow are very common in New Jersey. If you fell on someone else's property, who failed to adequately remove the danger, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries. The insurance company of an unsafe parking lot or other area will waste no time in contacting you to get you to sign a release and accept a paltry settlement, or take your statement and obtain a signed medical authorization so they can obtain all your medical records. Don’t do that until you have spoken to a knowledgeable attorney who has represented clients in slip and fall situations. The insurance companies have very capable legal counsel. You should, too.
Regardless of your eventual diagnosis, you want the representation of a lawyer who knows all the tricks of the insurance companies. Contact The Law Office of Francis M. Smith, Esq., today. If, after time goes by, it turns out your injuries are not serious and legal action is not necessary, there will be NO attorney fees.
It is very common to think you are ok after a fall, or that symptoms will dissipate and go away in time. But with the passage of time, your pain increases instead of decreasing. Your neck or lower back becomes extremely painful. Your ankle or knee may become a problem in the days after an accident. A doctor may prescribe pain medication or an anti-inflammatory, and sometimes physical therapy. If the pain does not go away, an MRI may be ordered.
While all this is happening, an insurance company may try to placate you with statements that they are sorry it happened. But when it comes to paying your bills or compensating you for lost wages and the pain and discomfort you’ve suffered, things change and the phone calls many times stop. You need legal counsel in these situations. Especially when it costs nothing if no recovery is achieved, it makes no sense to deal with this situation alone and uninformed. The insurance adjuster has years and years of experience handling situations like yours – but the adjuster’s job is to pay nothing or as little as possible. Why not get someone on your side who has years of experience? A seasoned attorney can help.
Remember that insurance companies exist for one purpose: to maximize their profits. You may think they are working on your case, and suddenly the bad news: there is no compensation offered for your accident under the pertinent insurance policy.
Get what you need and deserve by contacting an attorney with more than 30 years of experience negotiating fair, efficient settlements for spinal cord injury victims and other clients.
