The term “personal injury” involves any incident or action that leads to a person or group of people being harmed. Auto accidents, workers’ compensation, wrongful death, medical malpractice, and birth injuries are all examples of potential personal injury cases. Our personal injury lawyers are skilled and knowledgeable individuals who focus on helping injured victims obtain the compensation they deserve for their injuries and emotional pain resulting from personal injury.
If you or a family member experiences a personal injury, you can benefit from speaking to a personal injury lawyer at Lundy Law today. Often the insurance company for the person who caused the injury will try to settle with you before you have an opportunity to retain an attorney. The reason for this is that the insurance company knows it can probably settle the case for less money if you do not have a lawyer. We will investigate your case and obtain the necessary witness statements, documents, photographs, and other materials to protect your rights.
At Lundy Law:
- There is no charge for your first visit or telephone call. All your questions will be answered and there is no obligation.
- We never charge a fee unless we obtain a recovery for you. Our fee is a percentage of your recovery.
We may advance costs associated with obtaining the maximum recovery possible for your case.
Your case is worth either what we tell the insurance company it is worth or the amount of an award granted by a judge and jury. We examine all of the conditions surrounding your personal injury case to arrive at a figure that we believe the insurance company must pay for your injuries. These conditions include how the accident happened, what injuries you suffered, future medical problems, the amount of medical expenses and lost income, as well as future medical costs and future loss of income. We study every detail so we can get you the money you deserve for your personal injuries.
Yes. At the initial consultation, a personal injury attorney from Lundy Law will meet with you. Throughout the remainder of our representation of you, a lawyer and a legal assistant will be involved in the handling of your claim.
In the event your injury prevents you from traveling to our office, a personal injury lawyer from Lundy Law will meet with you at your house, the hospital, or any meeting place you designate.
Yes. Our law firm is staffed in such a way that a Lundy Law employee can be reached 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If appropriate, this employee can contact a firm attorney 7 days a week at any time. We are ready, willing, and able to discuss a claim with you 24/7.
No. If the insurance company for the person who caused the injury is willing to volunteer a fair settlement, you do not have to bring a lawsuit to obtain a recovery. We are skilled at negotiating settlements without filing a lawsuit. In the event the insurance company is not willing to negotiate fairly, we will then proceed with filing a lawsuit if you so desire.
A competent adult, who is over the age of 18 and injured, must bring the lawsuit in his or her name. A minor or an incompetent adult must have suit brought by either his or her parents or a court-appointed guardian.
Remember whom the adjustor works for: an insurance company. Adjustors have one goal—to settle your case for the least amount of money possible. What may seem like a fair offer to you could fall short of any amount of money settled through a lawyer. It is a good idea to consult with an attorney at Lundy Law before accepting any offer made to you by an insurance company.
A tort is a kind of personal injury case that involves a wrongful act to a person or group of people. The result of the wrongful act can be injury to health, property, or reputation for which the injured party is entitled to compensation. Many torts result from negligence.
Unfortunately for public health, torts seem to occur with frightening regularity these days. You may have heard about ReNu®, a contact lens cleaning solution that was causing severe and damaging eye problems to some of its users. Perhaps you read about Ortho Evra®, the birth control patch that caused fatal blood clots in some women, and put others at an increased risk of clot-related health complications.
A negligent manufacturer, a pharmaceutical company that cares more about profits than public safety, or a company that produced a defective product that harmed people are all potentially guilty of creating torts in which injured individuals may need to seek compensation for the harm caused to them.
You must file your case within the statute of limitations, a fixed period of time dictated by the law. In many injury cases you are required to bring your case within two or three years from the date of the event that caused the injury. For an explanation of these time limits, always consult with a lawyer experienced in these matters. Contact the personal injury lawyers at Lundy Law today, and we will help you determine the time frame in which you must act.
You have the right to change lawyers; however, your initial attorney usually will be entitled to payment for services rendered up to the time of dismissal. The lawyer will be paid from the fee earned at the conclusion of the case. Your new lawyer will usually work out an arrangement whereby the fee is split between the two lawyers.
Yes. Different lawyers will see a potential case differently. Some lawyers may not be familiar with the type of case you have. If a lawyer rejects your case, it is always a good idea to seek a second opinion.

Yes. We have decades of experience handling various types of claims in addition to those involving personal injury or death. We also work closely with other attorneys who practice in specific areas of the law where we may not. If your specific case is not the type of case we handle, we can certainly put you in touch with a respected attorney who will assist you and evaluate your case accordingly.
No. Based on the information insurance agents and insurance carriers provide us, simply because an injured person pursues a claim does not mean that his or her insurance premium will be increased. It is when a person's negligent or wrongful acts cause injury that his or her own insurance premiums are increased.
