  • Premises liability

How Do I Know If I Have A Personal Injury Claim?

While the possibilities of personal injuries are endless, there are four elements to a successful personal injury claim. To prevail in the claim, you must show that you have been injured and that another person or entity was negligent or did not meet the proper standard of care in the situation.

Then you must prove that their failure of care or negligence is the cause of your loss, injury or suffering. Finally, you need to prove that your pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills or permanent impairment were directly caused by and related to the other party’s negligence.

We Are Dedicated To Stand By You

An insurance company’s mode of operation is to try to blame your injuries on someone else or another event, whether it is true or not. Their stance often points out your injury could have been a pre-existing condition.

Insurance companies are tasked with saving money and closing claims with the least amount of money possible. Their staff does not care who you are or what you are suffering from.

Our attorneys and staff will work diligently with you and your doctors to show that this incident was the cause of your injuries and that you are entitled to compensation as a result of these injuries.

At Shankman & Associates in Lewiston and Topsham, we walk alongside you in your battle with the insurance companies. We will work closely with you to secure the settlement amount that you deserve. Call 207-209-3298, or contact us online.
