When You Need
a Personal Injury Attorney

It happens every day. The National Center for Health Statistics states that every year, some 31 million people nationwide are injured and require medical treatment.

Were you victimized by someone else’s carelessness? If so—and if you need an experienced personal injury lawyer—we can help. When you hire an OnderLaw accident attorney, you can count on having a legal care team fiercely committed to getting you the maximum possible compensation.

Depending on the facts and circumstances of your case, your attorney will either negotiate with their insurance company or legal team to get you a fair settlement or seek damages in court if one isn’t extended. We’ll level the playing field and negotiate for the maximum settlement you may be entitled to. If your case goes to trial, we’ll navigate the complex legal procedures and handle the details and deadlines associated with your case.

And you can also count on something more: a level of service that makes you feel supported and secure, from your initial consultation until your case concludes. That means listening to your information so we know which attorney to assign your case. We communicate with you regularly and handle the deadlines and details of your case so you don’t have to.

Our auto accident lawyers have the knowledge and resources to research every detail of your car accident. Insurance companies try to prey on the vulnerability of car accident victims and offer much lower settlements than they are entitled to. We hold at-fault drivers and insurance companies accountable for your injuries and get you the compensation you may be entitled to.

A truck accident is different from a passenger vehicle accident, often resulting in more severe injuries and vehicle damage. Commercially operated trucks must adhere to a variety of state and federal regulations, so having an accident with one may entitle you to more money than you think. Our lawyers are specially trained to deal with these uniquely complex cases.

A motorcycle crash is frequently a life-changing event. In an accident your body takes the full force, and without any safety cage or other reinforcements for protection, you’re at high risk of serious injury. We have the specialized experience to help you get compensation for your injuries, no matter how complex your case.

There are more bicycle riders sharing the road with cars than ever before and, unfortunately, more drivers who are distracted, intoxicated, or simply inexperienced behind the wheel. In a bike accident, your body takes the full force of the impact. Our bicycle accident lawyers have the specialized experience to help you get the maximum compensation possible for your injuries.

A surprising number of people are killed or injured by cars every year while they are merely walking. Permanent disabilities, paralysis, brain injuries, and even death can result. A pedestrian accident can have a big impact on your health and finances. If you’re injured, you could be owed significant compensation. We have the experience to help you get it.

Rideshare services are convenient, relatively inexpensive, and a good alternative if you’ve been drinking or prefer not to drive long distances alone. But their drivers aren’t always safe. If they cause an accident and you’re injured, they or the rideshare company could be held financially responsible for your medical treatment, lost wages, and other losses.

A dog bite or an animal attack is traumatic. Injuries may last long after the attack itself, and even when they don’t seem serious, they can result in long-term emotional and physical scars, and significantly impact your finances. If a negligent pet owner, property owner, or even a third party was responsible, you may be owed significant compensation.

Burn injury cases are incredibly complex and require technically skilled legal help. In addition, burn injuries often have lifelong repercussions, such as disfigurement or permanent scarring, so victims must pursue compensation for future costs as well as current expenses. We’ll fight to get you compensation for the pain and suffering inflicted by these traumatic injuries.

A brain injury has disastrous physical effects and can ruin you financially. Lengthy hospitalizations, extensive therapy, and lost wages are just some of the burdens you’re likely to face, often creating chaos for families. If someone else’s negligence caused you or a loved one to suffer brain injury and you’re wondering how to get on with your life, we can help.

Spinal cord injuries are among the most catastrophic events a person can suffer. There are nearly 18,000 new spinal cord injury cases each year, overwhelming victims with medical costs and throwing their families into turbulence. If someone else’s carelessness caused you or a loved one to suffer a spinal cord injury, we’ll help you get the most compensation possible.

It may not seem serious, but a slip and fall can do more damage than most people think. Every year, slip and fall injuries result in countless emergency room visits, lost workdays, even death. Such an accident can have a lasting impact on your health and finances. If a negligent business or property owner or municipal entity was responsible, you could be due compensation.

Nursing home abuse has reached epidemic proportions. Bedsores and pressure wounds due to lack of movement, neglected residents who soil themselves and need a change of undergarments, and injurious falls are all too common. If you or a loved one has endured abuse or neglect in a nursing home, we can get you compensation and hold the negligent party responsible.

Despite laws and regulations, workplace injuries, illnesses, and accidents occur regularly. Some environments have inherent risks, but if a company disregards safety guidelines or precautions, any workplace can have hazards that lead to injury or illness. If you or a loved one has endured workplace injuries, we can help you get compensation.

When a property owner fails to identify or adequately warn visitors of hazards on their property, they can be held accountable if someone is hurt. Whether it’s commercial or private, the owner must perform maintenance, repairs, and inspections to reduce injury risk. If you’re injured as a result of their failure to do so, you could receive compensation.

Few things are more heartbreaking than losing a loved one. Feelings of grief and loss are intensified when someone’s recklessness or negligence was a factor, and there are often devastating financial consequences. If someone else’s negligence caused you to lose a loved one before their time, we have the experience to get you the maximum possible compensation.

When you’ve been hurt due to someone else’s negligence, you can take steps to protect your rights and help ensure that you’ll recover the maximum available compensation. As long as your injury isn’t severe and it’s safe to do so, get as much evidence at the accident scene as possible.

If anyone saw what happened, talk to them about the details leading up to the incident. Write down names and phone numbers so you can contact them later if necessary. They may provide an insurance claim witness statement or testify during a lawsuit.

  • Motor vehicle crash– call 911 and report the accident to law enforcement.
  • Slip and fall– notify management and fill out an incident report.
  • Dog bite– locate the owner and call animal control.
  • Nursing home abuse– notify the staff and complete an incident report.
  • Medical malpractice– report it to the facility where you had your procedure and determine which provider was responsible.
  • Work-related accident– let your employer know what happened and submit an application to their workers’ compensation insurer.

What does a personal injury investigation look like?

When you hire us to help you with your legal case, we’ll investigate the cause of your accident and who was at fault for your injuries. We have the resources to investigate all types of personal injury cases and locate evidence to present a strong case.

We will

01

Discuss what happened with you– The first thing we’ll need to do is ask specific questions to get as much detail as possible so we can reconstruct the accident and determine what led to your injuries.

02

Request a copy of the accident/incident report – Your personal injury lawyer will request a copy of the accident/incident report. If you sustained injuries on public property or at a medical facility, we’ll request the report from management or the administrative office. If you got hurt in a car accident, we’ll purchase the traffic crash report.

03

Identify witnesses essential to your case – If we can locate people who saw the accident occur, we’ll take their statements to use as evidence in your claim. If necessary, we can call them to the stand at trial if we have to file a lawsuit.

04

Obtain video footage, if available – If there’s a security camera nearby, we’ll review the footage to see the events leading up to the incident. If it clearly shows you suffered injuries due to another person’s actions, we can use it as evidence in your case.

05

Secure medical records – This is crucial evidence in personal injury. It provides documentation indicating when you got hurt and how it happened and creates a useful timeline to show your treatment and the progression of your recovery.

06

Visit the accident scene – We might go there to take pictures. Most situations are difficult because evidence is usually cleaned up quickly (for example, when there’s a car crash), but if there’s a pothole or other road defect, we can photograph it. Other examples are damaged flooring on commercial property or slippery surfaces at a public swimming pool.

Every case is unique, so the amount of money you may be able to recover depends on the circumstances of your accident. If you’ve suffered financial, emotional, and physical losses for your injuries, you may be entitled to injury compensation and receive a settlement check for

  • past and future medical bills
  • loss of enjoyment of life
  • loss of consortium (loss of comfort, care, and society)
  • emotional distress
  • pain and suffering
  • property damage
  • lost wages
  • lost earning capacity
  • out-of-pocket expenses
  • psychological trauma

Were you injured in an accident as a
result of someone else’s negligence?

If you want to file a personal injury lawsuit, having the help of a personal injury lawyer from OnderLaw will be invaluable. Lawsuits are complex procedures and if you’re unfamiliar with how the process works, you may lose your case or end up with much less compensation than you deserve.

Here are some of the steps we’ll handle for you:

  • Prepare documents. We’ll draft a complaint, laying out all the elements of the case, and a summons that notifies the defendant that they’re required to appear in court on a specific date. We’ll then file these documents with the appropriate civil court.
  • Serve the complaint and summons. We’ll hire a process server to deliver the documents and hand them over to the defendant.
  • Begin discovery. After the defendant files their answer to our complaint, your Onder attorney and the defendant’s attorney request copies of evidence. We’ll also file documents asking each party to answer questions concerning the case and submit documents needed to investigate the accident.
  • Schedule depositions. During discovery, we may schedule a deposition to ask the defendant questions under oath about the case. It is conducted in front of the defendant’s attorney and recorded by a court reporter. 
  • Request mediation. We may request a meeting with the defendant, their attorney, and a mediator to try to reach a settlement agreement. If we agree to compensation that you believe is fair, we can avoid going to trial.
  • Prepare for trial. If we’re unable to settle during mediation, we will begin to prepare for trial, gathering evidence, locating witnesses to testify, and preparing our arguments for court. 

 

Keeping up with details and deadlines is a big part of successfully filing a lawsuit, but we know how overwhelming that can be. As an OnderLaw client, you won’t need to worry. We’ll take care of meeting any necessary deadlines so you can stay focused on your recovery.

You pay no upfront fees to have us represent you

If you’ve suffered an injury, the damage isn’t just physical and emotional; it can have a significant financial impact as well. OnderLaw avoids adding to your stress by not expecting an advance payment. We work on a contingency basis.

That means there are no upfront costs for our services. In fact, we don’t take our legal fees unless we recover compensation for you. If we don’t win, you don’t pay. We focus on your claim so that you can focus on your recovery.

We don’t take on cases, we fight causes

OnderLaw strives to make a difference by fighting for ordinary people who were harmed by the negligence of others.

We take on the challenge of fighting your case not only to make sure clients are compensated for their suffering but to hold negligent parties accountable for the harm they’ve caused.

Making you feel supported and cared for throughout your case is the most important part of our work. Get started today to see how we can help.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

OnderLaw handles personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that we only get paid if we recover financial compensation for you.

It’s a good idea to keep complete documentation of all your medical expenses as well as a log of your missed work hours. Even if you go to a store to buy over-the-counter pain pills, you should record all these costs. This will ensure that you are fully compensated for all of your medical expenses.

You should seek legal representation immediately after you suffer injuries in an accident. The sooner you hire a lawyer, the sooner we can begin our investigation and start collecting evidence. Over time, evidence gets lost, tampered with, or destroyed, and we want to make sure we obtain it before that can happen.

Wrongful death occurs when your loved one dies as the result of someone else’s negligence. The statute of limitations for wrongful death lawsuits varies depending on the state.

Only a few surviving family members can file a wrongful death lawsuit:

  •  spouse
  •  children
  •  grandchildren

If the family members listed above are no longer living, a surviving sibling may sue. If there are no surviving siblings, the personal representative of the deceased’s estate can pursue a case.

The damages available in wrongful death cases include

  • funeral and burial costs
  • medical expenses associated with the fatal injury or illness
  • pain and suffering the victim experienced before their death
  • loss of consortium (a spouse or partner making a claim because of the impact on the victim), services, guidance, and support the deceased would have provided to surviving family if they survived
  • total value of wages and benefits the deceased would have earned if they lived an average lifetime
