An legal professional helps you win compensation for future medical procedures or long-term impairment. At McPhillips Shinbaum, LLP, we focus on catastrophic injury circumstances, traumatic mind injury, spinal cord damage, severe burns and other kinds of auto accident damage. Comparative negligence only applies to circumstances that go to trial and are judged by a jury. Only 10% of private injury claims finish in a trial, however our attorneys have expertise representing purchasers before a jury and may advocate for proper compensation in a courtroom. If your case goes to trial, the jury will decide how a lot fault you and the other driver obtain. Once that has been determined, they’ll then reduce the amount of compensation you obtain by the proportion of fault you’ve.
