Attorney Joseph Pierotti Obtains Quarter of a Million Dollar Settlement

Attorney Joseph Pierotti

In this case, our client sustained an injury at a gas station after slipping on ice and falling to the pavement, causing a fracture to their right ankle. Our client’s injuries ultimately required surgical correction, which resulted in placement in a soft cast and wheelchair use for approximately three months. Additional surgery was required, which resulted in an extensive course of physical therapy and multiple steroid injections, and permanent scarring to our client’s leg and ankle. Our client’s ankle pain limited their ability to walk and stand for extended periods of time. The gas station owner denied liability and responsibility for our client’s injuries. Attorney Joseph Pierotti filed a lawsuit on our client’s behalf and, after more than three years of litigation, was able to obtain a settlement of $250,000.00 for our client.

When Do You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?

accident

While some people have experience with lawyers, others do not have any at all. Those who have not been involved with a lawyer in the past can be hesitant when deciding if they need a lawyer. According to Nolo.com, if any of the following situations happen to you, the skills of an experienced personal injury lawyer are almost certainly worth the time and money it takes to have a lawyer represent you.

Long-Term or Permanently Disabling Injuries

Some accidents can result in injuries that significantly affect your physical capabilities or appearance for an extended period of time, or even permanently. Figuring out how much a serious injury is worth can be difficult. If you believe your injuries might be long term or permanent, you should contact an attorney.

Severe Injuries

The amount of your accident compensation is determined by the severity of your injuries. The severity of your injuries is measured by the amount of your medical bills, the type of injuries you have, and the length of time it takes for you to recover. As the amount of your potential compensation increases, the range within which that compensation may fall becomes wider. In such cases, it is worth the expense to have a lawyer handle your claim to make sure you receive compensation at the highest end of the range.

Medical Malpractice

Injuries or illness can occur due to careless, unprofessional, or incompetent treatment at the hands of a doctor, nurse, hospital, or other medical provider. The medical questions and legal rules involved in these cases are complex, so it is recommended that you hire an attorney with experience in medical malpractice cases.

Toxic Exposure

In the increasingly chemical world, you can become ill from exposure to contaminants in the air, soil, water, products, or food. Claims based on such exposure are difficult to prove and often require scientific data. Chemical companies, food producers, and other industries have taken measures to protect themselves from such legal issues, and the required evidence can be hard to come by, so you will want to get expert help.

When an Insurance Company Refuses to Pay

In many instances, regardless of the nature of your injury, the amount of your medical bills, or the result of lost income, insurance companies either refuse to pay or refuse to pay reasonable amounts to settle claims.  In such cases it is imperative that you hire a lawyer in order to force the insurance company or government agency to make a fair settlement offer. In some cases, a lawyer can negotiate a settlement for you for more than you originally thought possible.

Finding a Good Personal Injury Lawyer

A good way to find a lawyer is to ask friends, injury specialists, or other lawyers for referrals. You can also do your own research and interview potential firms. It is important to base your decision on information about the lawyer’s education, experience, and general philosophy of practicing law to ensure that they will be a good fit for you and your case.

If you or someone you know has been in any of these situations, call Davis & Gelshenen LLP at 1-866-427-2121 for a free initial consultation with one of our Experienced, Trusted, and Recommended Personal Injury Attorneys.  Davis & Gelshenen LLP handles cases throughout Wisconsin, Illinois, and Ohio, and will meet with you at your home to discuss your case.
