What type of claim do you have ?
The way in which you were injured determines what you can collect and from
whom you may get your money. Tom Yorko has experience in representing clients
who were injured in motor vehicle accidents including truck, car &
motorcycle crashes and vehicles striking pedestrians or bicyclists. He
has sued Drunk drivers and those driving while using cell phones who are
clearly negligent. Many serious permanent injuries are caused by
relatively minor slip and fall incidents due to defects. Tom also has
obtained jury verdicts and settlements in medical and dental malpractice cases.
These claims are very expensive to prepare and very complex to investigate and
present in a courtroom. Catastrophic injuries whether from slip and falls
or other accidents including car crashes can be devastating. Tom Yorko has
experience in preparing these type of cases regardless of the manner in which
the injury occurred. In today’s world, there are federal and state laws that
require the attorney to pay back certain government agencies and insurance
providers for any benefits that were received by the injured party. Sometimes a
Trust must be set up to guarantee the injured party can keep their settlement
money and not lose valuable government assistance to which they are
entitled. Workers compensation cases have a different type of court
system than other civil lawsuits. You cannot receive pain and suffering damages
but are limited to lost wage benefits and payment of medical expenses caused by
your work injury. Strict notice requirements exist that limit you claim.
