How the Team at Hicks Law Firm Can Help You

When you decide to pursue compensation for an injury, you want to get every dollar you deserve. That’s why you should choose Hicks Law Firm. Our team of attorneys focuses exclusively on personal injury law, giving us the in-depth knowledge and experience needed to secure the outcome you’re looking for.

There’s a lot at stake in a personal injury claim. For you, a successful claim means getting the money you need to pay off medical bills, make up for lost wages, and get the care you need to move forward. For the insurance company on the other side, the money you need is just a drop in the bucket of their profits—but it’s still money they’re willing to fight for. Throughout this journey, plan on the insurance company fighting you every step of the way.

The attorneys at Hicks Law Firm will handle everything, from investigating your injury and gathering evidence to building a case that the insurance company cannot ignore. Most claims settle out of court, and we are fierce negotiators that won’t leave any money on the table. If your case goes to court, we’ve got you there, too—we’ve completed many jury trials and we’re ready to fight for you in the courtroom.

Getting the Compensation You Deserve

To get the compensation you need, we’ll need to prove the other party’s negligence. If someone was negligent, that means that they:

  • Owed you a duty of care
  • Failed to uphold that duty
  • Caused your injuries via their failure
  • Caused you measurable damages

This looks a little different for each type of personal injury claim. Consider a car crash:

  • The other driver automatically owes you a duty of care, as all drivers do to others on the road
  • The other driver shifts into your lane without checking their blind spot, and failing to check their blind spot is a clear violation of their duty of care
  • The speed of the crash causes you to break your arm
  • Your measurable damages include medical bills, mandatory time away from work, and pain and suffering

And another example, this time for a dog bite:

  • Dog owners owe those in the community a duty of care, which means keeping their dog restrained; in Orange County, dogs on public property must be on a leash no longer than six feet
  • The dog owner in question takes their dog out for an off-leash walk in violation of the law and their obligation to you
  • The dog charges you and bites you, leaving you injured
  • Your measurable damages include medical testing, stitches for the bite, lost wages, and the mental trauma of a dog bite

If you successfully prove the other party’s liability, you may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Medical bills and related expenses, such as travel expenses to and from appointments, over-the-counter medications, and adaptive equipment
  • Lost wages and, if your injury is catastrophic, lost future income
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
