You’ve been hurt, through anything from a dog bite to a severe burn or brain injury, due the negligence or recklessness of another. You may be unaware that you are potentially entitled to a monetary settlement, in keeping with the damage, pain, suffering, and impact on the rest of your life the injury had on you.

Although the statute of limitations for pursuing such claims – in some cases, two to three years or more – makes it seems as though there’s no hurry, we urge clients to contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible, in order to preserve evidence, investigate the case, and ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

James Munafo & Associates, represents clients in a variety of personal injury matters, including:

Know Your Rights

In some cases, insurance companies or corporations will try to get you to sign paperwork, which effectively voids your rights to seek compensation. In others, there are additional rights you may be unaware of – a personal injury lawyer can protect you from this. There are also types of injuries that worsen with time, such as when the spine is involved in any way.

The important thing to realize is that personal injury covers a lot of territory, protecting victims from intentional and unintentional harm, not just with respect to physical injuries, but also damage to reputations, emotional trauma, and the loss of ability to do the type of work one enjoys. One may fairly claim damages that not only cover current medical bills, but also long-term future medical costs, and loss of employment income.

Despite famous personal injury cases, which may seem extreme when one doesn’t know the whole story, many frivolous cases are thrown out by judges long before they become a burden to the court system. James Munafo & Associates offers a simple online contact form to fill out and a free consultation, in order to clarify your rights and the likelihood that your particular case will make for a valid claim.
