If you are injured due to the negligence of another, you may be entitled to compensation for any damages suffered. In terms of personal injury law, the word “damages” refers to the value of losses related to the injury. These can include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and psychological trauma.
When an insured individual or business suffers losses and makes a claim against their insurance policy, the expectation is that they will be compensated for those losses. Unfortunately, it is the insurance company’s job to pay as little as possible. As such, without skilled legal representation, many claimants receive substantially less than they deserve. In some cases, they receive nothing at all. If you need to make a claim against your auto insurer, or disability insurer, it is in your best interest to consult with an experienced insurance lawyer.
Litigation occurs when a legal issue cannot be settled out of court and must go to trial. Civil litigation is different from criminal litigation in that it refers to matters of a civil nature, such as personal injury, and employment law. Although it is always our goal to settle out of court, when a reasonable settlement offer cannot be reached, we are prepared to go to trial.
Any disputes or legal matters related to unlawful termination or wrongful dismissal fall under the category of employment law. At Roberts Law, we represent both employers and employees in such cases.
