    Big trucks, like 18-wheelers, can cause big accidents.

Securing Your Compensation

Dealing directly with insurance companies can be daunting and often unsatisfactory. That's where filing a personal injury lawsuit comes into play, serving as a more effective means of securing the compensation you rightly deserve. From the initial consultation to the resolution of your case, the Law Office of Robert L. Ward is your ally.

Building a Case

The first question we will ask is whether you have proof that your claims are valid. You must prove that the injury arose from negligence on the part of an individual or entity. You may need to file a worker's compensation claim if you were injured at work. Workers' compensation claims are more complicated. Nonetheless, an experienced attorney such as Robert L Ward can guide you through the legal nuances.

The biggest part of building your case is gathering evidence that will support or back up your personal injury claim. The Law Office of Robert L. War can help guide you in how much evidence you need and what types might be best to bring into your case. 

Types of Evidence:

  • Police reports and on-premises incident reports
  • Statements from witnesses
  • Videos or pictures from the scene
  • Medical records and doctor's statements
  • Documentation of related expenses and lost wages

The Lawsuit Process With The Law Office of Robert L. Ward

When you contact us regarding a potential personal injury lawsuit, we listen closely to your situation. After that, we will ask you to provide evidence to support your claim. Once we have this information, our team will contact the insurance companies involved.

It is our goal to obtain financial compensation for the damages you have suffered. Negotiating a fair settlement is our top priority. If this is not feasible, the case will go to trial. The team at the Law Office of Robert L. Ward will continue to represent you throughout this process.

What Is Fair Compensation?

There are several ways to calculate fair compensation. For example, we will look at any medical fees like ambulance rides, hospital bills, aftercare services, and medication costs. If you were employed, we will also seek compensation for lost wages.

A monetary value cannot be assigned to everything. For example, you may suffer emotional trauma after an incident. You might also struggle with depression. These are important issues that should not be overlooked, but they are also difficult to value financially. An experienced attorney like Robert L. Ward can explain these damages and pursue the best possible outcome on your behalf.
