Protecting Injured Workers
And Their Families For The Short And Long Term
We Seek Maximum Compensation In Personal Injury Cases
Let Baehman Law provide you with quality, experienced legal counsel and representation for your personal injury case that involves an automotive or motorcycle accident. Your chances of recovery, especially recovery with more compensation, can happen with an experienced lawyer such as Jackson Baehman by your side.
If you have been involved in an auto accident, not only can we assist you with bringing a claim against the other driver, but we can also assist you with any claim you may have against your own insurance carrier, including any denial of your no-fault claims. In addition, if the other driver did not have insurance coverage, or inadequate insurance coverage, we can assist in bringing an uninsured or underinsured coverage claim.
Under the No-Fault Act, medical expenses, loss of income, replacement services and other miscellaneous expenses will typically be paid by your own insurance company, regardless of who is at fault for the accident. Your no-fault insurer will pay for doctor and chiropractor/physical therapy appointments, hospitalization, prescription medications, and mileage reimbursement to and from medical facilities.
In addition, if you are unable to work because of your injuries, you are entitled to wage loss benefits equal to 85 percent of your loss of gross income to a maximum of $250 per week. Further, if you are unable to perform housecleaning, snow shoveling, lawn mowing or other household services, you may be able to recover the value of those services or be reimbursed for hiring others to do those things for you.
How We Can Help
If the accident is the fault of the other driver, we can assist you in making a claim against their insurance company for pain and suffering, and other damages if you have any the following:
- At least $4,000 in medical expenses
Sixty days of inability to work or substantially perform all of your normal daily activities
- A permanent injury or disfigurement verified by your doctor
In addition, if you are involved in an auto vehicle accident while working, it is also considered a work injury and qualifies under the Workers’ Compensation Act. Workers’ compensation coverage is primary motor vehicle coverage. Some claims are different, whereas others are the same, and you may have claims under both. Baehman Law handles both workers’ compensation and personal injury; thus, we can provide you with legal representation and counsel for both.
If you are denied benefits for any reason, or the claims representative closes his or her file, please contact Baehman Law to evaluate your claim and pursue the benefits you deserve. For example, insurance companies frequently ask injured individuals to be evaluated by an “independent” medical examiner. Oftentimes, these doctors’ IME reports are used to deny benefits or portions of benefits. This does not mean, however, that you do not have a legitimate claim. The IME report is simply one doctor’s opinion and can be contradicted by other evidence, including your own doctor’s opinion.
