Personal injury attorney Christopher “Kim” Thompson can help you sort things out.
At Thompson Law, our goal is simple. We fight to hold negligent parties accountable and help the injured recover the financial compensation they deserve. You have a lot on your mind right now. Attorney Thompson can help you understand your legal rights and will fight for a resolution of your case that meets your needs.
It’s important to talk to an attorney as soon as possible following your accident. In general, you have only one year from the date of your accident to take legal action. It can take time to gather evidence and build a claim for compensation. In addition, the longer you wait, the more likely it is that evidence will be lost or destroyed, and the memories of witnesses can fade.
A hard-working accident lawyer who fights for your rights
Attorney Thompson knows the impact an accident can have on victims and their families. Physically, someone is left with a serious injury that requires medical treatment. Emotionally, it can be a very difficult time. Financially, it can be hard to make ends meet – medical expenses go up while income goes down if you are left unable to work.
Recovering financial compensation is complicated. Insurance companies are supposed to help when you’ve been injured in an accident, but they are mostly interested in helping their bottom line. They want to keep their profits as high as possible. To do this, they try to keep payouts as low as possible.
There are many tactics that insurance companies use to minimize your compensation. Attorney Thompson knows them all. That’s because he used to work for insurance companies as a claims adjuster. He has seen firsthand how insurance companies work and knows how to fight back to get the compensation you need and deserve.
Typically, negligent parties who cause accidents that leave people hurt don’t accept responsibility. They deny that they did anything wrong. This leaves you in the position of having to prove negligence occurred.
A record of getting results
Attorney Thompson knows that every case depends on the facts. So he starts by investigating your accident to find out what really happened. He gathers evidence, reviews accident reports and medical records, interviews witnesses and if needed, consults accident reconstruction experts. He builds a strong case that holds negligent parties accountable.
When insurance companies see that attorney Thompson is prepared and ready to fight for you, they often agree to negotiate a settlement. They would love for you to accept their lowball offer, because it would help them save money. Attorney Thompson is only interested in a settlement that works for you.
This includes compensation for all medical expenses related to your injuries – both now and in the future. It includes compensation for lost wages if your injuries left you unable to return to work. He may seek compensation for other damages as well, such as pain and suffering.
