Personal Injury? Act Quickly To Preserve Evidence.

Picture of DoctorsPersonal injuries can be sustained in almost every aspect of life.   Some are minor and others can have a devastating impact on your life and the lives of your loved one.   In such a situation, you should immediately contact a reputable personal injury attorney.   First and foremost, critical evidence can be lost or destroyed if not preserved quickly.  A talented personal injury attorney could immediately take steps to assist you in identifying and preserving critical evidence.  For example, if you are injured in a slip and fall near a retail establishment such as a Barnes & Noble or Starbucks Coffee Shop, that retail establishment or one nearby may have rolling video of the inside or outside sidewalk area where you were injured.  But not all businesses videotape their premises and the ones that do may only keep the videotape archive for a short period of time.  Securing a copy of the videotape quickly could assist you greatly in proving your case in a court of law.  If you sustain an injury due to the fault or negligence of another person, you or a family member or friend should take action immediately by contacting a personal injury attorney.The law firm of DeBlasio & Gower LLC has extensive experience representing individuals in personal injury cases.  Individuals sustaining significant personal injuries (physical and/or psychological) will find that our attorneys have the skills to pursue claims for negligence and in certain circumstances, willful and wanton (reckless) conduct, as well as survival claims and wrongful death claims.  These claims may arise in many different contexts, including car accidents and work-related injuries.  Successful plaintiffs may be awarded damages for various forms of losses and injuries, including, but not limited to:
