Help With a Personal Injury or Disability Claim
At Owens & Nelson, our lawyers have handled a wide range of personal injury and accident claims. We provide a free initial consultation. Cases are handled on a contingency fee basis - no recovery means no attorney fee.
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, talk to an attorney at Owens & Nelson before you talk to the insurance company. Establishing fault or no-fault is the insurance company's goal and they may ask loaded questions that can back you into a corner.
Medical Malpractice and Wrongful Death
With 850 doctors in town, a mistake can happen. Nurses, surgeons, physicians, pharmacists can all cause serious harm or even wrongful death. When health care professionals cause harm through negligence or violate established standards of care, they may be held liable for damages. This is called medical malpractice, and if it has happened to you or a loved one, we can help.
At nursing homes and rest homes, negligence or abuse can happen as well. Falls caused by slippery floors, injuries caused by poor lighting, patients on medicines who shouldn't be walking around or who are abused for acting up — the nursing home has a legal responsibility to keep this from happening. If they haven't lived up to this responsibility, call Owens & Nelson.
If you need to file for short or long-term disability, a good lawyer can help get your claim right the first time. We know how to write your claim so that the insurance company will have all the holes filled in and have less of a reason to deny you. Once a claim is denied, you have to start the appeals process. When you're not getting a paycheck, this is too long a process to wait through.
