Personal Injury and Wrongful Death

Personal Injury and Wrongful Death When you are injured, it can be devastating to yourself and to your family. You have to deal with the pain of the injury and your physical inability to do many of the things you have done for all your life. You have to ask your friends and family to take over your responsibilities, and to take on the responsibility of taking care of your needs as well. Your injury affects your family, and they suffer an injury to their lives too.

Often a serious injury means you can’t go to work, for a short time, a long time, or maybe ever again. At the same time, you have hospital and medical bills and costs for extra help you and your family need while you are injured. That means you have large expenses and have lost the income that barely covered your expenses before those extra costs were added.

Plus, you have police, investigators, and insurance companies asking questions and wanting you to sign away rights. The legal picture can be unclear and confusing to someone who has never faced it before, and the people who are investigating your injury do not have your interests at heart.

You need help. We understand the effects of injury on you and your family, and we know the methods the police and insurance companies will try to use to blame you, even when it is not your fault. We are here to help you and your family.

We have outlined below some of the types of personal injury cases we handle, with a few words about each. The different types of injuries, the different ways you can be injured, and the different legal theories that we can use to recover damages for your injury all require your lawyer to have specialized knowledge gained through experience. The KJC Law Firm trial lawyers have a broad range of experience in all types of personal injury cases.

Just as there are many different ways to get injured, we have learned that there are many avenues to obtaining recovery for those injuries, some producing better results than others. Multiple legal theories may apply, and it is important that your lawyer understand these theories and know which ones to use in your case. In addition, there may be several different individuals or entities responsible for paying compensation for an injury.

At KJC Law Firm, we have the skills, experience and imagination to identify all the legal theories that may apply to your claim and to pursue all potential avenues of recovery. Our lawyers have more than 90 years of experience litigating cases. We pride ourselves in creativity and imagination as well as intelligence and skill. We work hard to make sure our clients receive the maximum compensation from every responsible source.
