bus accidents - car accidents - truck accidents - slip & fall - dog bites
The life-altering effects of an accident the few moments when a truck or bus crashes into a car, or ice causes an unsuspecting slip and fall - can never be erased. People don't file lawsuits to erase the past; rather, they file them because the accident changed the future. Often times, routine daily person care or work that was once simple becomes a difficult, painful, or even an impossible task. Moments of joy previously spent playing with a child might be out of the question. When life changes from one of independence to one of total dependence upon a caregiver because of someone else's carelessness, recklessness or outright negligence, it is not something you expected, asked for, or planned. People don't save money for these types of losses; rather, we save money for trips, new cars or weddings. Every person has a right to expect every other person to use reasonable care. Whether it is driving a school bus, traveling on
the highway, or hauling a load with a semi-truck, we have a right to expect people not to hurt us.
Personal injury claims can't return a loved one who was wrongfully killed, nor replace legs so that you may walk, but they can help you get needed, often very expensive medical care, and re-fabricate life. That is the purpose of a personal injury lawsuit. You have a right to be returned to your former life, or as near as can be achieved. To achieve those types of settlements, you need very aggressive personal injury lawyers who have the stamina to go the distance in a hard case and the scientific medical knowledge to not only understand the medical paperwork but to refute the insurance companies' claims. You need the personal injury team at Gourley, Rehekemper & Lindholm.
