Personal injury is a serious matter. Your health, your job, your family and your future can be at stake. If you have suffered an injury because of somebody else’s fault, negligence or carelessness, you need an experienced personal injury attorney there for you. We are here to help get you through this together.
After an injury, many people are not sure what to do and may wait too long to get a lawyer to help them with their claim. The law requires that injury claims be filed with the court within a specific time period generally called a “statute of limitations”. No matter how good your case may be, if your claim is not settled within that time period, a lawsuit must be filed before the limitations period expires. But you can’t wait until the last minute to file. Waiting too long increases the risk for unforeseen problems to happen. You may not have the correct name of the person or business that caused your injury. You may not be aware of all the potential parties who played some part in causing your injury. Maybe the person who caused the injury has died in the meantime.
There also other reasons for getting an experienced attorney soon after you have been injured. Many claims need prompt investigation to protect your rights. Photographic evidence of vehicle damage, accident scenes, road signs, intersections, hazardous conditions, faulty equipment, road or walkway defects and injuries need to be obtained before situations change. Witness information including signed or recorded statements with names, addresses and phone numbers are important to establish the facts of how the injury happened.
The law can be complicated and many times an injury claim may be difficult to prove. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you get the facts and evidence needed to prove your case so that you can be fairly compensated for the harms and losses you have suffered from an injury. Trying to go it alone when you are seriously injured is too risky. You can call us to get a free initial legal consultation so you can explain what happened to you and find out whether or not you may be able to recover money damages as compensation for you pain and suffering, lost wages, scarring, permanent injury or other losses that are recoverable by law.
While you are treating for your injuries, Attorney Sidney D. May can protect your rights and pursue getting the compensation you need to get your life back on track. See below for the types of cases we handle.

Knowledgeable and skilled legal representation when you need it most.
It is you against the insurance company. You need someone who knows the law by your side.
An injury can leave you not only with physical harm and in pain but also mentally confused and emotionally drained. A knowledgeable, skilled lawyer can help get you through this very difficult time. When you are hospitalized, unable to return to work and in treatment for your injuries, you need someone to help guide you through this so your rights are protected. In many injury claims, there is an insurance company that will be assigned your claim. Insurance companies know that you are in a tough situation and may try to get you to settle your claim for far less than what is fair to you. Or it may be difficult to find the identify who was responsible for your injury and they may try to ignore your claim. Don’t let this happen to you.
