Representing People Suffering With Serious Injuries
An injury is never just physical. You can’t concentrate or find a comfortable sleeping position. The bills start piling up. It takes away your independence and favorite activities. You worry about your future prospects if you can’t return to your job.
The experienced injury lawyers of Smith Magram Michaud Colonna, P.C., are committed to seeing clients fully compensated for the aftermath of their injuries. We take on the legal burdens to alleviate the stress and problems, but we work closely with clients to understand all the ways that their injury impacts the personal and family life. This helps us hold negligent parties, employers and insurance companies to a fair settlement of claims.
Our Burlington law firm represents injury victims throughout South Jersey and Central New Jersey. Our legal team has more than 100 years of collective experience handling personal injury, motor vehicle accident, premises liability, work injury and disability claims.
We Welcome All Types Of Injury Cases
Unlike law firms that turn their noses up at soft tissue cases and minor injuries, Smith Magram Michaud Colonna doesn’t have a minimum dollar value. We take any case if we believe our representation will get the client a better recovery than they would get on their own.
We have obtained verdicts and settlements for victims of permanent and catastrophic injuries who need the money to cover a lifetime of needs, but we regularly get good results in smaller cases too.
Our recoveries for clients have spanned every category of injury and every degree:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord injury (paralysis)
- Back injury and neck injury
- Amputation and crush injuries
- Broken bones and fractures
- Injuries to joints (knee, shoulder, ankle, elbow)
- Compartment injuries (nerve damage)
- Severe burns
- Scars and disfigurement
- Eye injury and hearing loss
- Lacerations, abrasions and bruises
We also pursue wrongful death lawsuits on behalf of families who lost loved ones to fatal accidents.
Demonstrating The Harm In Your Life
We frequently work with experts who can gauge the extent of injury and help us determine the client’s losses and needs. Those professionals include physicians and surgeons, nurses and physical therapists, psychologists, life care planners, economists and vocational experts.
We use that input, along with our close consultation with victims and family members, to submit a detailed claim for damages that covers: medical expenses and future care, lost wages and future earnings, permanent disability or scarring, and pain and suffering. If the insurance company refuses to settle for a just and reasonable amount, our legal team includes certified trial lawyers who will take the negligent parties and their insurers to court.
We offer a free initial consultation with our Burlington accident injury attorneys. And since we work on a contingency fee basis, you owe no attorney fees unless we win your case.
