Call A Personal Injury Lawyer at McMahon, McMahon & Lentz

A personal injury lawyer will review all the facts of your case to determine whether you should proceed. In order to proceed with a successful personal injury case, your attorney must be able to establish negligence on the part of another person and show that the negligence caused your injury. In some cases this is very easy to do while, in other cases, it may not be as clear. Each case is different and your attorney should take special care to look at every aspect of the accident to determine liability and negligence. Choose an attorney with a great deal of experience handling these types of cases.

Get the Compensation You Deserve

When you have been injured you have some expenses as a result. If the accident or injury is because of the negligence of someone else, the law states that you should be compensated. There are several things that you may be compensated for, including:


  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Future medical or rehabilitation costs
  • Burial and funeral costs


These expenses can be very costly. In many cases, the injured person must undergo years of physical therapy. These costs should be recovered from the negligent party. Many times, the case may be resolved through settlement; however, sometimes the case will proceed to trial. Your attorney should be well versed in negotiation techniques as well as in trial law in order to prepare the most successful case for you. If you’ve been injured, don’t settle the case on your own and never agree to sign anything presented to you from another insurance company. Instead, seek the legal advice of a personal injury attorney to guide you through the process and help you resolve the case favorably. Call McMahon, McMahon and Lentz today to learn more.
