Suffering an injury can impact many facets of your life. This can be very challenging and emotional, as a serious injury could result in lost time at work, extensive medical bills, physical restrictions, pain and suffering and strain on relationships. And when an injury is caused by the negligence of another, the situation can get more frustrating.
While your focus might be on recovering from your injuries, it is also important to consider what rights you have in the situation. Whether it was a negligent driver, business or property owner that caused the accident, it is possible to file a legal action to hold them accountable and recover damages for your losses.

At the Law Office of Helene Mark, our legal team understands the complexities an injury suffered in an accident can bring to a victim’s life.

When filing a personal injury action, many question if the matter will have to go to court. The answer to this is dependent on the situation. In matters of extreme negligence and recklessness, punitive damages might be available. As such, moving forward with litigation might be necessary.
Often, these claims are settled privately. Whether through negotiations, mediation or arbitration, our law firm represents the best interests of our clients when reaching a favorable outcome. If a settlement is not reached, our attorneys are prepared to fight for the rights and interests of our clients at trial.
Accidents and the injuries that follow are unexpected, causing most to be unprepared to deal with the aftermath. Therefore, it is important to consider your options and legal rights. A legal professional can help you better understand your situation so you can make an informed decision when moving forward with a personal injury action.
