The structure of our legal system is complicated and may seem overwhelming. When someone needs to hire a personal injury attorney, oftentimes they are not sure where to turn. Many of our clients come to us because a friend or family member referred them to our law office.
Here at Miller Lathrop we practice exclusively in personal injury law and wrongful death, which means all of our clients have had something horrible happen to them. Our clients have experienced a life-changing injury or are enduring the wrongful death of a loved one. Because of the personal nature and importance of the cases we handle, we feel it is a privilege to be entrusted with our clients’ legal matters.
Our firm represents the plaintiffs in personal injury law suits. The defense lawyers represent the insurance companies and their insured, or other parties being sued for causing injury to another.
We Represent People Who Have Been Injured
We represent people with injuries that were caused by a failure on the part of another person or entity. Our firm helps people recover financial compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages, and possibly compensation for pain and suffering or punitive damages.
Who We Represent
- People who have been injured in car accidents caused by another driver’s negligence.
- Workers who have been injured because their employer violated a safety rule.
- Children who have been injured at a trampoline park caused by a failure on the part of the trampoline park or its staff to properly operate its facility.
- Families whose loved one died due to the negligence or misconduct of another party. In these cases the victim’s family can bring a claim for wrongful death.
- People who have sustained long-term injuries caused by the negligence or misconduct of another party.
These are only a few examples of the types of cases our firm handles and the people we help. We are plaintiffs’ attorneys. We help people who have been injured in accidents get the compensation they deserve.
We Are Experienced Trial Attorneys
Many of our clients are relieved to learn that most cases are resolved prior to going to trial. At Miller Lathrop roughly 65% of all cases we handle are resolved by settlement without filing a lawsuit. When lawsuits are filed, typically they settle prior to trial. However, if a favorable settlement cannot be reached, we are not afraid to take your case to trial. Understand that accepting or rejecting a settlement offer is always up to you.
Our firm covers the upfront costs of pursuing your personal injury case. And Our attorneys are seasoned jury trial lawyers. This means that we are equipped to get you the best possible outcome.
When selecting a personal injury attorney to represent you, it is important that you hire an experienced trial lawyer. Not all lawyers are trial lawyers and filing a case does not make someone a trial lawyer. Experience in front of a jury is what matters. Insurance companies know which lawyers try cases and which ones do not.
If an insurance company knows your lawyer will not go to court, that insurance adjuster or defense lawyer may not offer you fair compensation. Many insurance companies decide how much someone will recover based on whether or not their lawyer actually picks juries and tries cases to a verdict. Insurance companies know us as attorneys who routinely try cases to verdict.
