Car Accident Law

It can be hard figuring out what documents you need to keep track of in order to make a solid case after a car accident. Being in a car accident is a stressful event even if it didn't result in injury. Having these documents will benefit you when talking with the insurance companies. If you were injured during your accident, then your claim is even more reliant on presenting evidence that the other driver was at fault. It also bodes well to show evidence of said injuries as proof of pain and suffering.

Once it's time to settle your claim, your lawyer will put together a demand package outlining your claim to send to the insurance company. They will need to know a lot of information surrounding the accident. The documents you’ll need can become taxing to find, especially when you don’t even know where to start.

So what documents should you bring to your injury law attorney to help strengthen your claim? Here is a list of 8 of the most important things you’ll need:

Wrongful Death

Every year, it is estimated 98,000 people are killed from preventable medical errors. Wrongful death is a type of claim where another person can be held liable for your loved one’s death. These types of claims are often committed due to negligence. Losing a loved one is a tragic event and it might be comforting to know there is support from your local law firm. Wrongful death cases can shock the family and friends of the deceased and Barfoot and Schoettker Law is here to help you understand the support you have access to.

One of the hardest parts when dealing with a wrongful death case is not receiving the compensation you deserve. There is no amount of money that can bring back what was lost, but there are many ways to receive support.

Cold weather, warm fireplaces, holidays, and so much more are all associated with the winter season. However, despite all of the joy, it is also one of the busiest times of the year for injuries and accidents. Slips, car accidents, and other types of injuries are very common due to cold weather conditions such as snow and ice. Winter can be dangerous, so it is important to be extra alert and seek compensation for damages that can be minor to even life-threatening.

Take extra precautions this winter season to ensure you are able to enjoy a happy and injury-free holiday. We've compiled a list of the most common winter accidents that can cause injury and even lead to lawsuits.

Have you or your baby sustained injuries from childbirth? Birth injuries refer to trauma to the mother or the baby before, during, or after childbirth. While some birth injuries can be prevented or avoided, childbirth is risky and there are multiple things that could go wrong during the process. Minor birth injuries typically require little medical assistance and often resolve on their own. However, more serious injuries can have lasting effects on either the mother or child.

If you or your baby have sustained injuries due to childbirth, you can file a medical malpractice lawsuit and could be eligible to receive compensation. Sometimes these injuries could result in death and in this case you can file a wrongful death lawsuit. In both instances, these injuries could be avoided if the doctor had provided the proper care.
