If you or a loved one have been injured through the negligent, dangerous, or reckless act of another person or corporation, legal action can be taken to recover compensation for damages. Although these cases vary widely in degree of injury, one aspect remains a constant: The party responsible for the injury is liable and must face civil justice related to their actions in a claim or lawsuit filed on behalf of the injured.
A civil claim against the responsible party can be a critical aspect for an injured victim — their medical treatment, future medical care, rehabilitation, loss of income, and pain and suffering should all be considered when filing a claim.

The legal team at Blevins & Hong, P.C. has extensive experience in addressing all types of legal claims, including:
If you were injured in a car accident, motorcycle accident, or truck accident, contact our team as soon as possible. Car accidents are one of the leading causes of death in the U.S. In fact, it is estimated that there is a traffic collision every 10 seconds. If you were injured because of the negligence or recklessness of another, you could be entitled to compensation.
Motorcycle accidents are often extremely serious, as the rider has little protection when involved in a collision with another vehicle. Sadly, other motorists often fail to look out for motorcyclists, cyclists, and pedestrians.
Those who work on construction sites face unique hazards every day. If you were the victim of an accident because your employer or a co-worker was careless, they could be held liable for your injuries. The aftermath of an accident may not only be traumatic, but expensive as well.
Burn injuries can be particularly devastating. They may result from an auto accident, building fire, scalding liquids, or unsafe workplace conditions. No matter the circumstance, showing liability and receiving compensation can be a difficult and complicated process. A skilled attorney like those at Blevins and Hong, P.C. can help.
Some injuries are more than serious — they are catastrophic. These result in permanent quality of life changes and include brain damage, injuries resulting in amputation, and electrocution. No amount of money or medical treatment can undo a catastrophic injury, but the person or entity liable should do everything possible to compensate the victim. It is wise to focus on recovery and coping with the changing circumstances while allowing an experienced and compassionate attorney to care for the legal aspects of the situation.
An accident that results in death is one of the worst calamities that can affect a family. If you lost a loved one because of the negligence of another, no amount of financial compensation could make up for their loss. However, by holding the guilty party responsible for what they have done, you could ensure that the same thing does not happen to someone else. You could also secure justice for the victim and their family.
Medical professionals (doctors, surgeons, nurses, dentists, dermatologists, gynecologists, pediatricians, etc.), care takers, security guards, and hoteliers comprise some of the professionals whose actions or negligence can result in personal injuries or deaths of their clients. Victims can pursue compensation for injuries caused by these professionals’ malpractice. A personal injury lawyer stands a better chance of winning a client’s cases against the lawyers/insurers of those professionals.
Substandard products, whether consumable products (food items, skin products, drugs, etc.) or equipment, have been causes of injuries or the death of users. The producers/manufacturers of such products should be held accountable, if and when ample warning or a manual for use was not provided.
When an injury caused by negligence is very serious, the settlement sought must be adequate to provide for the victim.
Whether your case involves a serious injury or one in which a full recovery is expected over time, seeking fair and full compensation that addresses all the damages is vital. A comprehensive and well-documented claim will be filed and negotiations will begin. In most cases, a settlement can be reached prior to trial. When an insurance company refuses to provide our client with fair compensation, we are willing to take the case to the next level and have a jury decide.
Nothing is worse than being seriously injured in an accident and hiring a lawyer who couldn’t care less about your case. Your personal injury attorney should show genuine concern for your situation and the outcome of your claim. Unless you are able to obtain a fair settlement or verdict to cover your damages, you could experience serious financial hardship or even face bankruptcy.
