Dealing with a serious personal injury or the death of a loved one is difficult enough without the added burden of dealing with insurance companies, claims or pursuing legal action. For over 30 years, Bolhouse, Hofstee & McLean has been dedicated to assisting our clients who are faced with such a personal tragedy. From acting as their personal advocate with creditors and insurance companies to aggressively working to ensure they receive the maximum compensation to which they are entitled, our clients' best interests remain our primary focus.
Personal injury clients may be entitled to recover compensation for pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, permanent disability, present and future medical expenses, property damage, loss of earnings, and permanent disfigurement. A spouse may also recover damages for loss of income and companionship.
We understand that an injured client may not have the financial resources available to hire an experienced, qualified personal injury attorney on an hourly basis, so we work on a contingency fee basis: we are paid based on a percentage of the amount we recover for our clients.
We are candid with our clients and after examining the merits of each individual case, advise whether negotiation, arbitration, mediation or litigation is in our clients' best interest.
Personal Injury and wrongful death cases we accept:
The right to recover damages resulting from the careless or negligent conduct of another person, which negligence or careless conduct caused a physical or emotional injury to the claimant.
Assault and battery Boating accidents Closed head injuries Construction accidents Dangerous machines or products Defective roads and sidewalks Dog bites Drowning Drunk driving accidents, including claims against the bar or restaurant that served the alcohol Electrocution or electrical accidents Jet ski accidents Motorcycle accidents Motor vehicle accidents Paralysis Pedestrian/auto accidents Pedestrian/motorcycle accidents Product liability Slip and fall Spinal cord injury Traumatic brain injuries Trip and fall accidents Truck accidents Unsafe products Unsafe machines Wrongful death
We typically take these claims on a contingency basis. In other words, if we do not recover anything on your behalf, we do not get paid. And, obviously, we have every incentive to obtain as significant a recovery as possible on your behalf. The fee will ultimately be a percentage of whatever amount we recover on your behalf.
Reimbursement for medical bills Lost wages Out-of-pocket costs Reimbursement for attendant care provided by friends or relatives Home modifications Damages for the loss of enjoyment of life Pain and suffering Damages for humiliation or embarrassment Damages for emotional distress
In the vast majority of personal injury claims, there is an insurance company responsible to pay the damages or settlement. In many cases, a business may be uninsured or self-insured and is an appropriate target to recover damages.
The only way to know for sure whether you have a viable claim or not is to consult with an experienced attorney who handles personal injury claims.
