As your Personal Injury Lawyer, we handle the many facets of your personal injury case. When you come into our office for the first time, for your free initial consultation, we will sit with you to determine whether or not you have a case. As part of your case we will obtain any police reports, and obtain from your medical providers, all of the relevant medical records, notes, x-ray reports, diagnostic tests, MRIs, cat scans, as well as the related medical bills. We will also place the insurance company covering the individual or entity that caused your accident, on notice. This is referred to as a bodily injury claim.
While the most common personal injury we encounter is a motor vehicle accident, there are many other types of personal injury case that we, at Germani & Germani, P.C., have experience with. Were you injured while crossing the street, riding your bicycle, or riding on the bus or other public transportation? Were you injured as a result of falling due to poor lighting on stairs or uneven pavement? Did you fall due to a foreign substance being left on the floor at your local grocery store? Was you child bitten by his best friend's dog?
Other personal injury cases involve work related injuries due to unsafe working conditions; injuries due to working with hazardous chemicals, involving burns or disfigurement. Was defective machinery the cause of your injury? Here at Germani & Germani, P.C. we are also experienced in handling Workmen's Compensation claims, Third-Party claims and General Liability claims.
If you or a loved one were injured or harmed as a result of the negligence or incorrect diagnosis on the part of a doctor or hospital, nursing home or rehabilitation center, we can help you recover for the injuries you have suffered. Were you given the wrong medication or prescribed the wrong dosage of medicine? Again, we are here to help.
In each of the above cases, as with automobile accident cases, we will sit with you to determine if you have a case, and if so, how to best proceed. We will obtain and interpret your medical and hospital records and deal with all negotiations with the insurance companies involved, all in an effort to settle your claim at the greatest settlement amount possible.
As is standard practice for Personal Injury Lawyers, rather than charge by the hour, personal injury cases are handled on a contingency basis. We only get our payment once we have received a settlement. In addition, if there are any costs advanced by our office, these costs are not reimbursed by you until the time of settlement, and are paid out of the settlement amount. If, by some chance, there is no settlement, you are not responsible for any costs. Our attorney fees are usually 1/3 of the full settlement. This is all explained at the outset of your case.
