You probably never expected to call a personal injury attorney. But an accident or injury may have unexpectedly put you in a position where you have rapidly-mounting medical bills, and perhaps decreased income or an inability to work. None of it is your fault. You want the responsible party to do what's right, but your focus needs to be on getting better, not pursuing compensation. Plachta, Murphy & Associates takes legal worries off your shoulders so you can concentrate on what's important: getting your health back.
At Plachta, Murphy & Associates, we represent people who have suffered a personal injury due to someone else's negligence and recklessness. We know all you want is to get your life back the way it was before you were injured. We're committed to helping you do that. We work with people in all types of personal injury cases, including:
We understand you want to resolve your case quickly, but you need to be extremely cautious. The party responsible for your injury, or their insurance company, may offer a settlement to close the case. Especially if you're in a difficult financial position, you may be tempted to accept it.
This is usually a mistake. Remember that liability insurers are for-profit companies, which means it's in their best interest to pay you as little as possible. If they offer you a settlement, it's likely because they want to prevent you from seeking a larger recovery later. You should never sign anything offered by an insurance company, or agree to take an “examination under oath,” without consulting an attorney of your own first. Failure to do so could seriously and permanently jeopardize your rights.
Our clients appreciate our decades of personal injury litigation experience and the results we achieve for them. What we hear over and over is how much it means to our clients that we care personally about them and their families – not just their case. We believe that personal care and connection is what sets us apart from other personal injury litigators. We invite you to contact Plachta, Murphy & Associates to schedule a consultation with a member of our Litigation team, and to learn how we can help you.
