Helping You Pursue Justice After A Personal Injury
When someone else’s negligence has caused a significant injury for you or a family member, your healing and financial recovery from the accident are usually top of mind. But personal injury lawsuits can also offer two other important benefits: justice and closure. The Law Firm of Richard M. Lewis has more than 30 years of experience in representing clients injured due to car, motorcycle or truck accidents; incorrectly prescribing dangerous drugs; defective medical equipment; or medical malpractice incidents. We understand that the suffering caused by this accident may be lifelong and completely alter your way of life and ability to provide for your family. Our legal team collaborates with you to assess your needs and establish a claim amount that will cover your present and future economic and health needs.
Building A Strong Injury Claim
Our work with personal injury clients starts with a free consultation. However, if you are able, you can assist our firm in creating a compelling claim by doing the following:
- Document your injuries and the treatments you receive. This is essential to demonstrate the extent of your injuries and the need for compensation.
- Collect information related to the other parties involved in the accident. When possible, exchange names, phone numbers and insurance information.
- Take pictures of the accident site. If you are in a motor vehicle accident, you can do this with your smartphone. In other types of accidents, obtaining photos of the site or drafting a detailed description of how the accident happened can be helpful.
- Contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. Once you have hired an attorney at our firm, you can focus on your health and our firm can focus on interacting with insurance companies and the other side’s lawyer.
Because of our firm’s extensive background in personal injury law, we are often able to secure a settlement without a trial. However, if the case must be litigated in court, we are ready to recover every dollar you need and deserve.
