Few occurrences in life can be as debilitating as a serious personal injury. This field includes negligence (failure to exercise ordinary care that proximately causes injury to another), products liability (injury from defective products), medical malpractice (which is usually a negligence-based action) and many others. Workers such as merchant seaman and some offshore oil workers are protected by the Jones Act, which provides remedies for persons injured in these areas.
Insurance carriers are extremely difficult to deal with under the best of circumstances and most will certainly try to take advantage of a victim not represented by competent counsel. Time is of the essence in these cases and the sooner you retain counsel, the better your chances of making a recovery. Most cases can be resolved without trial but if not, trial by jury is always an option.
