Getting Your Deserved Compensation After An Accident

We are often asked, “What is my case worth?” It is essential to understand that there is much more to personal injury and wrongful death cases than medical expenses and lost wages. Of course, medical expenses and lost wages are part of the damages in personal injury cases, but they are often minimal compared to the human losses in a case. Human losses include love, companionship, freedom of movement, hope for the future and much more. Too frequently in the legal world, lawyers and insurance adjusters forget about the most severe losses in a case. We pride ourselves on understanding human losses, which is how we find the total value in injury cases and determine what a case is worth.

Our lawyers are dedicated to getting compensation for victims of serious injuries of all types. We handle cases involving both adult and child injuries, as well as wrongful death claims. Our cases typically involve negligence in the form of:

How Rittgers & Rittgers Is Different

Focused effort on every case: We want to ensure that each case we take receives the care and attention it deserves, so we are selective about the claims we handle. We focus on cases where our decades of experience can make the most difference.

A cadre of experts ready to help: Every detail is important. How did the accident happen? How much compensation is necessary?

A record of excellence and results: We care about results because we know how much those results mean to people who have suffered severe injuries. Our attorneys understand how much financial compensation matters when you face the effects of a life-changing injury or when you are coping with the wrongful death of a loved one.

Get Answers To Your Personal Injury Questions

There is a lot of confusion and misinformation when it comes to personal injury law. Victims of serious accidents can be left without the resources they need to pay medical bills, replace lost wages and move forward if they accept bad advice. Getting the right information when you need it is vital. At Rittgers & Rittgers, we fight to protect people whom the negligence or carelessness of others has injured.

If you are not ready to call a personal injury lawyer, you still need answers to your questions. Here are a few things we have heard from people who were thinking about hiring an attorney:

Won’t Insurance Pay My Costs?

Not voluntarily. Insurance companies do not make money by being generous. They will pay you as little as they can to make you go away. If they can pay you less than you deserve, that is a win for them. If you are wondering why we have insurance, there are many benefits despite the challenges of getting compensation after an accident.

Insurance companies — yours and that of the person who caused your injuries — are not on your side. They are about minimizing costs. No insurance company will provide you any more than you deserve under the terms of your contract. Few, if any, will offer you a fair amount if they think you will accept less. A personal injury attorney is often necessary to get the insurance companies to live up to their contractual agreements. We also offer a more in-depth discussion about whether it is worth it to hire a personal injury lawyer.

How Much Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?

The short answer is that we won’t know until we thoroughly review your situation. Many factors affect how much money you are entitled to after an accident. To learn more, visit our page on personal injury valuation.

Which Costs Are Covered Under Personal Injury Law?

This question depends on the specifics of your case, but in general, you can seek compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Disability accommodation expenses
  • Rehabilitation costs and other future medical expenses
  • Cost of property damaged or destroyed in the accident

What Should I Look For In An Attorney?

Many attorneys advertise their services in the area of personal injury. Choosing the right one can be difficult. Ask your attorney about their experience with cases like yours. Some attorneys focus on car accident representation. Others handle premises liability or defective product claims. The key is to find a lawyer or law firm with the resources, dedication and experience to get you all the compensation you deserve.

Will My Case End Up In Court?

The vast majority of personal injury claims filed in court don’t go through a full trial. In most cases, both parties can agree on a fair settlement without the trial’s expense, time, and unpredictability. The problem is that an insurance company has less incentive to negotiate fairly with someone afraid to make his or her case in court. Your lawyer must be prepared to go to court to make sure that you get what you deserve. If a law firm never goes to trial, that might be a sign that it is willing to accept less than a full and fair result for you.

What If I Don’t Know Who Caused My Accident?

Assigning blame for an accident is not always straightforward. If you were rear-ended, it might not be the fault of the driver who hit you. Legally, many accidents are the result of negligence by two or more people. A series of mistakes can add up to a single tragedy.

If you or a loved one suffered a severe injury, you should speak to an attorney. At the very least, that attorney can give you an educated opinion about whether you are entitled to damages under the law. You don’t have to know all the details in advance. What matters is to get the process started as soon as possible to protect your rights.

Client Review: 5/5 ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

"My husband and I were in a horrible head on collision a year ago. The driver nor his parents had no insurance. We didn’t have a clue what to do. My husband talked to another firm, but I wasn’t sure, they just stuff in the mail to look at. We needed someone to talk about our situation. So we looked into Rittgers & Rittgers, Barb called us back promptly and explained what and how we needed to proceed and we felt very comfortable with her and her staff. I’m so glad we used Rittgers & Rittgers firm. Barb and Lynda were so friendly, helpful and nice every time we talked. If not for them we’d be paying on medical bills etc., forever. So we recommend them highly." - Sue Stanley
