4) Personal Injury

The Law Office Of Jason Shackelford, P.C. protect the rights of you and your loved ones who have been hurt or fatally injured. We are well-known for providing comprehensive solutions and ferociously defending your rights, entitlements and best interests. The stress and pain associated with recovering from a serious injury are bad enough without having to worry about the financial impact rehabilitation will have on you. Some of the areas where we have recently contributed to great success for our clients include:

Car accidents
Worker's compensation
Failure to warn
Product liability
Premises liability
Motorcycle accidents
Pedestrian accidents
Our success in supporting clients like you in a myriad of unique situations is what makes us stand out from the crowd. Don’t settle for any less than the damages you rightfully deserve. We can assist you in recovering out of pocket medical costs, lost pay due to job loss or inability to return to work, legal representation and litigation fees.

Receiving Full Accident Compensation
When you’ve been harmed by the actions (or failure to act) of another party, you are entitled to file for accident compensation. It is critical to begin your claim as soon after the incident as possible. During this time, the qualified guidance of a legal professional will be invaluable to receiving a favorable outcome and the full range of reparations you deserve.

Filing Personal Injury Claims
Knowing where to start when you are new to the process of filing personal injury claims is not as simple as it should be. There are many barriers that discourage people from pursuing the protection of their entitlements, the foremost being the complex law that surrounds your rights freedoms under state and federal law.

Slip and Fall
A slip and fall injury can wreak havoc on your body and leave you in rough shape in the hospital, at no fault of your own. If you’ve recently experienced a bad fall, there are a few questions to investigate before moving forward with seeking damages:

Did the property owner cause the hazard?
Was the property owner aware of the problem at the time of the incident?
Did this type of hazard or defect happen on a regular basis, or continue to exist for a long period of time, where the owner should have been aware of its existence prior to your injury?
What level of care does the person who owns the property owe to the injured party?
What is the relationship between the injured party and the hazardous environment, for example: Were you the customer of a business, a guest who had been invited or an unsolicited visitor?
Answering these questions in depth helps us gain a better understanding of the details of your unique situation and allows us to present you with a litigation strategy that is based on years of proven success.

An Affordable Car Accident Lawyer
Do you need a car accident lawyer who understands the specifics of your claim? Our experience providing results and relief for our clients covers all aspects of vehicular injury, including:

Rear-end collision
Hit and run
Impaired driver collisions
Side-swipes
Passenger injuries
Bike accidents
To give us an opportunity to review your claim, and provide more specific information on how our personal injury lawyers can contribute to the success of your case, phone our office to set up a no-obligation consultation today.
