Georgetown Personal Injury Lawyer

You break it, you buy it. The Georgetown personal injury lawyers at the Stanley Law Group enforce this simple principle when tortfeasors (negligent actors) do not immediately step up and do the right thing.

The incidents listed below break people. They cause serious injuries that are usually permanent. Car crash-related broken leg bones are a good example. During crashes, victims’ legs usually slam into the dashboard. As a result, doctors must use metal components to surgically reconstruct these bones. Afterwards, the victim usually loses range of motion in a hip, knee, or other joint.

When people break tacky coffee cups at souvenir stores, they must pay compensation (replace the cups). When people break other people, they must also pay compensation. The compensation in a personal injury case is much higher because a person is worth much more than a coffee cup. This compensation usually includes money for economic losses, such as medical bills, and noneconomic losses, such as pain and suffering.

Kinds of Personal Injuries Our Georgetown Personal Injury Lawyers Handle

Among people under 45, unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death. The specific cause could be a trauma injury, like a head injury, or a long-term disease, like toxic exposure cancer. The three leading causes of unintentional death are:

  • Car Crashes: Every year, vehicle collisions kill or seriously injure more than two million Americans every year. Manufacturers aggressively market advanced sensors and other safety devices on modern cars and trucks. But modern cars and trucks are also bigger and faster than ever. The safety innovations haven’t kept pace with the engineering innovations.
  • Poisonings: In 2022, for the first time ever, the U.S. life expectancy rate dropped for the second year in a row. That long-term decline is mostly due to the continuing drug overdose epidemic. Legally, these cases are extremely complex. Multiple parties could be financially responsible for damages in these matters.
  • Falls: Slip-and-fall injuries are especially serious, and often fatal, among older adults with pre-existing conditions. A Georgetown personal injury lawyer can still obtain maximum compensation, even if a pre-existing condition contributed to the risk and/or severity of injury. Insurance companies cannot use victims’ vulnerabilities as an excuse to reduce their compensation.

Other premises liability claims, besides fall injuries, include dog bites, swimming pool drownings, and negligent security-related assaults.

No one can turn back the clock and change a personal injury that occurred in the past. Financial  compensation is the next best thing.

Why You Need a Lawyer

Responsibility and compensation are the two biggest issues in a personal injury case. A Georgetown personal injury lawyer is a necessary partner in both areas.

Usually within two or three hours of a personal injury, insurance company lawyers begin working on behalf of the company. So, a subsequent legal confrontation is like a football game between a college team and a middle school team. It’s not a fair fight, and the tortfeasor can easily avoid legal responsibility.

Furthermore, 80 percent of insurance company settlement payments go to accident victims with lawyers. Unrepresented victims must always settle for less. That’s an outcome we simply will not accept.
