Personal Injury

Our firm will help you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries. An injury may threaten your health and ability to work. It can cause financial stress and family strain. We understand these things at The Benson Law Firm.

We represent clients on personal injury matters including car accidents, trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, and bicycle accidents. Our firm has also successfully handled several cases where a child has been hit by an automobile. These cases are often called "child-darting” cases. Other cases handled by our firm include swimming pool and boating accident injuries caused by negligence or recklessness.

The grief and stress caused by personal injuries are understood by our firm. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2011, 3,331 people were killed in crashes involving a distracted driver. An additional, 387,000 people were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver. As one client said, "I didn’t ask for this to happen,” after a teenager caused him serious injuries due to texting while driving.

Getting a prompt and thorough medical examination is critical to the success of your case. You may also have benefits under your automobile policy if the other driver is uninsured. We will handle these matters along with presenting your medical claim to the insurance company or jury in a way that accurately conveys the extent of your injuries.

Never talk to an insurance company without a personal injury lawyer present. Insurance adjusters receive special training on how to phrase questions in a certain way to gain an advantage. Even a simple automobile accident can have numerous complicated legal theories. Injury cases include the following:

  • Car Accidents
  • Truck Accidents
  • Nursing Home Abuse
  • Wrongful Death
  • Motorcycle Injury
  • Slip and Fall Injury
  • Construction Accidents
  • Bicycle Accidents
  • Product Liability
