Have You Been in an Accident?

  • Ideally, contact the injured within 24 hours of the accident. The sooner, the better. This is because the other party’s insurance will call and ask them to make a statement that can be used against them. “I need to consult with my attorney before I give you a statement” is the correct response. The insurance company is aware of this, and they will use it to avoid paying the claim. Jim and Karen ask particular inquiries to ensure that the injury is completely documented. If they’ve previously seen a doctor, they’ll proceed to the next planned appointment to collect the necessary information on the doctor’s record.
  • There is a two-year statute of limitations following an accident.
  • The injured party is not always required to appear in court.

Truck Accident Lawyer

Most big truck accidents are complicated; the injury could be severe, and the legal formalities are more challenging than a car accident. If you have been in a truck accident, hiring a truck accident lawyer is the easiest and safest way to ensure you’ll be treated fairly by the people who hurt you. After an accident, you’ll be contacted by the trucking company, their insurance adjusters, and their lawyers. It’s possible that you’ll be offered a settlement. It’s crucial to realize that these people aren’t looking out for you, and the settlement they offer you is often significantly less than you deserve. This is a strategy for keeping you quiet, avoiding having to go to court, and paying you as little as possible.
The lawyers at the Law Office of James F. Kajtoch will fight for you. During the preparation of your case, settlement negotiations, and trial, our attorneys will protect your rights and interests. We use our years of experience and legal resources to gather evidence to build your claim and pursue the compensation you deserve.

Types of Abuse and Neglect

Nursing home abuse is any action or inaction resulting in a resident suffering physical or psychological harm. This abuse can take many forms. Regardless of the type of abuse, you should speak to an attorney right away.
Apart from physical, emotional, and sexual abuse, the types of abuse senior residents face includes:

  • Financial Abuse — where a staff member gains access to a resident’s assets using deceptive means.
  • Abandonment — where a nursing home resident is deserted by those trusted to care for them.
  • Self-Neglect — where the senior resident refuses to care for themselves properly. Even in these cases, the nursing home staff is held accountable as they are responsible for ensuring nursing home residents get the care they need.

Premises Liability

Have you suffered an injury caused by an unsafe or defective condition on someone else’s property? Regardless of whether it’s private or commercial property, you are entitled to justice and compensation. The amount of money recovered in a premises liability case is determined by case-specific circumstances. These factors can include the severity of the injuries and the negligence of the persons involved. After learning more about your circumstances, our attorney can assist you in the legal proceedings, including creating the reports and calculating the compensation.
