Personal Injury

Helping Clients in Need

At the Blackwell Law Firm, we help clients who have suffered serious personal injury. We routinely handle personal injury claims caused by car accidents, commercial truck crashes, workplace injuries, industrial accidents and defective products. We invite you to read the case-specific pages on our website for many of these issues.

If you or a loved one has suffered injury from the wrongful conduct of someone else, you may have a right to pursue a personal injury claim. We routinely help clients suffering severe personal injuries, including:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  • Paralysis
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Severe bone and joint injuries
  • Amputation
  • Internal organ injuries

Serious personal injuries need serious attention. That means hard work and preparation to pursue your claims aggressively. Personal injury cases involve real families struggling to recover. These families deserve our focus on their individual cases and recoveries.

An Advocate for You

From the moment of your injury, the insurance companies work to pay you as little as possible. They know the reputations of local attorneys. They also know which attorneys settle for low value and which attorneys prepare their cases. Insurance companies know which attorneys will fight for their clients in court when needed. We work hard to present your claims. Our goal is to obtain the maximum compensation possible for you and your family.

Insurance companies also use many tactics to deny or reduce claims. These tactics include seeking recorded statements from you as well as seeking signed documents allowing full access to all your personal information. We actively advise our clients on these issues from the moment we are hired.

We investigate and prepare all our cases. The value of your personal injury case depends on the ability of your lawyer to gather and present important information. When deciding who to hire as a personal injury attorney, you should ask several questions.

  • Ask about the lawyer’s work and preparation on behalf of clients. Good lawyers work long hours to prepare their cases.
  • Ask about the lawyer’s willingness to go to court when needed for clients. Good lawyers go to court on behalf of their clients.
  • Ask about the lawyer’s knowledge related to personal injury issues. Many lawyers advertise just to get personal injury cases. Good lawyers constantly study the law in an effort to better prepare their cases.

We develop your personal injury claim so you can obtain the best offer possible. Yet, not all cases should settle before filing. Too many lawyers no longer go to court. We believe lawyers should go to court for their clients when necessary to obtain the best possible compensation.

Full Client Value for Injury Victims

The focus of our work is obtaining maximum compensation for our clients. Some attorneys only handle limited claims and ignore others. A serious personal injury may involve many types of claims. For example, if you suffer injury in a car accident you may have a claim against the other driver for his or her negligence. You may also have claims related to a defect in your car which contributed to your injuries. If you were on the job at the time of the car accident, you may also have a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. In order to obtain the maximum compensation for you, an attorney should know the various claims, how they interact and be able to present them on your behalf. That’s why we constantly study the law.

Full client value means obtaining the maximum compensation possible and then helping the client keep it. Many personal injury cases involve complicated issues related to health benefits and medical bills. An attorney who does not understand these rules could cost his or her clients. An experienced lawyer specializing in personal injury should help his or her clients navigate a complex medical and insurance system. We do.
