Personal injuries disrupt the lives of millions of people every year. These injuries range from sprains and bruises to life-altering brain and spinal cord injuries. According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, 12,000 new cases of spinal cord damage occur every year, often from auto accidents. These unfortunate individuals will require extensive medical treatment and many will never recover the full use of affected limbs and organs. These are just some of the victims of accidents and injury caused by negligence and wrongdoing, a cause which forms the basis of personal injury claims and lawsuits.

Benefit of a Lawyer
In the wake of an accident or other type of incident which has left you injured, you will likely be forced to deal with an insurance company. Trusting insurance carriers to compensate you fully for all of the damages and losses you’ve suffered is usually a losing proposition. No matter how pleasant and reasonable insurance company representatives may seem, their goal is to get you to agree to the lowest possible settlement amount. A fair result in any injury claim will likely be bolstered with the help of a competent attorney whose sole aim is your best interests. At Howell & Christmas, we know how to deal with insurance company ploys to undervalue your claim.
