It is nearly impossible to drive a lifetime without being involved in a car accident. Insurance companies and their adjusters deal with thousands of auto collisions every year. Their motivation is to make a profit and keep costs down. That means it is not in the insurance company’s best interests to help you. You should make sure you are adequately and responsibly represented before negotiating any claim with the insurance company. It is important when involved in a car collision to make sure a police report is filed, not to give any recorded or written statements to an insurance adjuster, and not to sign anything, especially a medical authorization without first consulting a lawyer. The sooner you seek legal representation, the sooner your rights and your claim will be adequately protected.

Slip and Fall

A business or property owner bears the responsibility to exercise reasonable care in the maintenance of their property, as well as to notify or warn visitors to the property of any hazards that exist and might cause a slip, trip or fall. A business or property owner is liable for a ‘slip and fall’ accident when they are negligent in failing to reasonably maintain their property or in properly warning visitors of latent dangers. Determining liability in a ‘slip and fall’ accident can be difficult, involving many contributing factors. Law Offices of Alan John Clark, P.A. will assure your rights are protected.

Malpractice

Negotiated settlements of claims arising from medical negligence frequently involve the issue of confidentiality between the parties. In cases where a defendant physician, facility or other health care provider demands a confidentiality provision as part of a settlement agreement, plaintiff’s medical malpractice lawyer must consider several factors prior to agreeing to include confidentiality as a material term of a release and settlement agreement. The first and most obvious consideration is the client’s intent and objective in bringing the action in the first place. A client that is dealing with their own, or a family member’s loss, as a result of a medical error experiences a wide array of emotions in deciding whether to pursue a claim. A frequently stated motivating factor is the desire to make sure this doesn’t happen to someone else. As noble a cause as this may seem, it does not square with the remedies available in most jurisdictions, or the purpose of the civil trial system. The civil litigant is entitled to fair compensation for their injuries, and that remedy is the ‘justice’ available.

Unsafe Products

The law of products liability involves the liability of a manufacturer, wholesaler, or retailer of a product for injuries caused by that product. Consumers have rights which protect them from defective products, and manufacturers have a legal obligation to provide safe products. Product liability law invoves only items marketed for sale or lease and only injuries which occur as a result of a defect or deficiency in the quality or performance of the product. A products liability claim can be brought against anyone in the marketing chain, from the manufacturer to the retailer. While repair persons, installers, and inspectors may not be liable for the actual failure or defect of a product, they may be liable for negligence or breach of warranties for faulty repairs, installation, or inspection which causes personal injury or property damage. When faced with an injury caused by a product which was improperly designed, manufactured, or maintained, it is important that you choose a law firm experienced in handling products liability cases. The proper handling of a products liability case requires a thorough investigation by an experienced legal team to determine which organizations should be named as defendants and which legal theories should be pursued. Also, knowledgeable experts must be engaged in the case to provide testimony at trial. Our products liability team has the experience to conduct a thorough investigation to make your products liability case the strongest possible.

Workplace injuries

The value of your claim is determined by statute and depends mainly on the kind of injury and the extent of any permanency. There are two ways that a workers’ compensation claim can be settled. The first kind is a settlement agreement written on a form provided by the Industrial Commission and the other is what is commonly called a clincher agreement. The main difference between the two involves your right to future benefits because of a change of condition within two years after the last date you received a check. In the IC form, your right to possible future benefits is preserved. In the clincher agreement, this right is waived in exchange for an additional sum of money. Settlement of a workers’ compensation case can be complex, especially if there are return-to-work issues. Before you sign anything, you should consult Law Offices of Alan John Clark, PA.

Workers’ Compensation

You have the right to a safe workplace. When you suffer an injury at work, you have the right to seek workers’ compensation benefits. Workplace accidents are as varied as workplaces themselves. Many times, disputes arise of the nature and severity of your workplace injury. Sometimes disputes even arise over whether or not the injury has an impact on your ability to perform your employment duties. These disputes can result in a denial of benefits or receipt of benefits in an insufficient amount. Law Offices of Alan John Clark, P.A. is dedicated to helping you secure the benefits you need.

Personal Injury

Personal injuries not only cause physical pain, but also cause emotional and financial hardship through loss of work, medical bills and stress placed upon individuals and families. Whether caused by an automobile accident, a defective product, or other negligent, careless or reckless conduct, injuries alter lives forever. Dealing with insurance companies and their vast resources can be frustrating and intimidating to many individuals. Despite what insurance adjusters may tell you, insurance companies do not represent the interests of the injured party. We will aggressively fight for you to obtain a settlement or trial verdict that fairly reflects all your damages, including medical bills, lost wages, emotional stress, pain and suffering, and other damages.
