PERSONAL INJURY/WRONGFUL DEATH

If you or a loved one has been wrongfully injured, we can help. That includes not only automobile accidents, but other acts of negligence, as well as intentional misconduct (assault, battery, etc.).  Our cases are handled by Kenneth Clayton Dawson, an attorney who has practiced law since 1982. Your claim will not be assigned to a junior lawyer. Mr. Dawson has  successfully  handled many personal injury and wrongful death claims.

It's important to put your claim together quickly. However, you don't want to settle too soon. If you release other parties before you reach maximum medical improvement, you won't be able to recover for bills or lost wages afterwards. That's one reason why Claims Adjusters contact you soon after an accident. They want to settle your claim while your lost wages and medical bills are few, and your treatment is incomplete.

Once you are represented by counsel, adjusters know you are willing to file a lawsuit. You can't sue the other parties' insurer usually. However, you can sue their insured.  When that happens, the carrier has to provide legal representation for their clients. They must pay any Judgment up to their policy limits. So, it is a big step for an injured party to hire an attorney.

Litigation is required when a claim can't be settled with an adjuster. It is time consuming and often expensive. There are deadlines, extensions, and continuances. Before a case can be tried, there is a pleading process, followed by a six month Discovery Process, including depositions, written interrogatories, and requests for production. Afterwards, there are usually Motions, followed by Mediation. That is where most cases are settled. If Mediation is unsuccessful, the matter is set for trial. Even when a case reaches a trial calendar, it may require several Terms of Court for it to be reached. The trial itself could takes days or weeks, and then there is an appeal process. Litigation is not for the impatient. 

It is important to hire an attorney as soon as possible. You may lose valuable legal rights otherwise. When we are employed, the Dawson Law Firm begins collecting evidence, determining damages, and preparing your case. We believe that your case should be ready for litigation as soon as possible.
