Personal injury cases may be quite simple or they may be extremely complex. Accidents can sometimes be chaotic events and each side may have a different perspective on what happened in the accident. The parties at fault often are not entirely truthful about their fault. In many instances of complicated accident events, the services of experts in various science, engineering, and materials disciplines are required to help prove what really happened. Severe injuries, such as burns, fractures, head traumas, and spinal injuries, often result in severe pain; require years of surgeries, treatment, and rehabilitation; cause permanent disfigurement and scars; and necessitate long-term care.
The complexities may involve many factors, including obtaining all the evidence necessary to prove who is (and who isn’t) at fault, evaluating the extent of the visible and not-so-visible injuries, and evaluating the cost of past treatment, the present dollar value of the cost of all future treatments, the value of all lost wages – past and future, and appropriate compensation for pain, suffering, and loss of the injured person’s services to their family.
When a person is seriously injured because someone else was careless or neglectful, they need a lawyer who has the ability and experience to deal with these complexities, and access to qualified experts who can figure out and recreate the various events that caused the injuries and everything that is required to treat those injuries. But that is not enough. The injured person also needs a lawyer who can use these resources effectively to either convince the careless party (or their insurance company) to pay for the injuries they caused in an out-of-court settlement, or persuade a jury to render a verdict for damages against the guilty party in an amount that compensates the injured client and their family for their injuries and losses. Attorney Benjamin Soffer has nearly 20 years of personal injury legal experience and knows what it takes to achieve a successful result for his clients. Mr. Soffer also brings to the table nearly 15 years of engineering experience, which greatly enhances his ability to understand the chaotic dynamics of accidents and product failures, and devise the best methods to explain them to the jury.
Personal injuries don’t always involve accidents or product failures. Quite often, innocent individuals suffer severe injuries because a property owner or a commercial tenant failed to maintain their premises in a manner that is safe for persons using or visiting the premises – be they an apartment or office building, a store, a hotel, a restaurant, a theme park, any type of business, or even vacant land. Serious injuries can also occur when a trusted facility, such as a hospital, a nursing home, or an assisted living facility, is careless, neglectful, or abusive.
If you were seriously injured, or if a close family member was killed, because of someone else’s carelessness or inattention, please contact the Soffer Law Firm.
