Personal injury law is based on two simple, sound, and essential principles. The first is that each of us is required by law to exercise reasonable care in our actions. Examples of reasonable care are stopping for a red light and obeying the speed limit. The second principle is that each of us is legally responsible for the consequences of our actions. Simply put, if a motorist fails to exercise reasonable care, such as running a red light and causes a car accident injuring another, that motorist is financially responsible for the personal injuries suffered by the other driver.
Personal injury damages are meant to make the injured party whole and include reimbursement of the medical bills and lost wages, and compensation for the physical injuries themselves, physical pain, mental anguish, and inconvenience caused by the injuries, such as attending doctor visits. The lawyers and staff at Curcio Law focus exclusively on handling personal injury cases on behalf of the injured and take great pride in the privilege to do so.
We have the experience, knowledge, and resources to obtain for each client the compensation to which each is entitled under the law to allow them to move forward with their lives with dignity. We are not a high-volume law firm which enables us to pay individualized attention to each client and for all team members to be familiar with each case we are handling.
An accident causing a serious personal injury or death is an unplanned and sudden event with far-reaching, unsettling, and unfamiliar consequences for the person injured and his or her family. Doctor bills are incurred and pile up, wages are lost causing additional financial worries, understanding what is available to cover these losses by liability and health insurance is confusing, dealing with insurances companies is daunting, and how to manage all these issues while focusing on needed medical care is challenging, stressful, and overwhelming. All of us at Curcio Law are here to take these stressors and challenges from your shoulders and put them on ours, to thoroughly and competently handle each problem with the experience and know-how acquired over thirty-five years of practice so that you can focus on getting yourself well and moving forward.
