Just the mention of “personal injury attorney” can elicit a variety of negative responses from individuals in the community who have never been injured by someone else’s negligence. This is because personal injury is without a doubt the most misunderstood and probably most underappreciated area of legal practice.
The Musgrove Law Firm, however, takes pride in their work in personal injury law because we believe we can help everyday people get the justice they deserve to recover from their injuries with as much ease as possible. Our goal is to change the way the public views personal injury and personal injury lawyers.
People automatically associate personal injury lawsuits with individuals seeking a windfall or trying to “game” the system at another’s expense, and because of such, the benefit of a personal injury attorney is often overlooked. While those types of people certainly exists, at The Musgrove Law Firm, we make a special effort to represent only those people who truly need out help. In doing so, we are able to devote more time to our clients and their issues, and in turn obtain more favorable results.
A common misunderstanding is that all personal injury claims are lawsuits and all lawsuits are made against the at-fault party directly. While this may be true in some instances, the fact of the matter is that most personal injury claims settle long before lawsuits are needed through a demand process. Additionally, most, if not all personal injury claims are investigated, defended, and ultimately paid by the insurance company for the negligent party…an organization whose only interest is protecting their bank accounts, not in making sure that you are compensated for your injuries. The only way to ensure that your claim is properly presented and financially maximized, as well as to ensure you are not taken advantage of by an insurance company, is with the assistance of counsel.
We have found that most people automatically associate personal injury with car wrecks and back pain, but it is actually so much more. Personal injuries can occur from car wrecks, trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, boating accidents, slips and falls, falling objects, injuries on commercial premises, gun shots, aggressive dogs, aggressive people and unknowing children, just to name a few. Injuries can be as minor as bumps and bruises, or may involved broken bones and injured muscles. In the most serious cases injuries may result in severed spinal cords, brain injuries, psychological injuries, dismemberment, disability or even death.
What is clear is that personal injury claims are caused by the negligence, and sometimes intent, of others, who acted in a manner that they should not have, and injured someone as a result. When this occurs, you should not have to worry about receiving treatment, paying medical bills, missing pay, or taking care of your body in the future.
While I understand that accidents happen, I also understand that those accidents, more often than not, cause pain, require time away from work and loved ones, necessitate extensive medical treatment, and can dramatically affect a person’s life. Something as simple as a low-impact rear-end collision can have a devastating impact on a spine, causing premature aging and unwanted pain.
No attorney can replace lost time, heal injured bodies, or cause an accident not to happen. Ultimately, the only remedy available to a person injured by the negligence of another is money. Having said that, it is my promise that at the conclusion of your claim you will have received as much money as the law allows and every penny you are entitled to!
