Getting You The Care and Compensation You Deserve

If you are injured due to the negligence or wrongful conduct of another, you may be entitled to compensation from the party that wronged you. It is simply not fair for you to have to shoulder the burden of medical expenses and lost wages, and to endure the burden of pain and suffering, due to injuries which were caused by the carelessness or recklessness of another. Justice requires that the responsible party or parties be held accountable for their behavior.

However, while the law may be on your side, obtaining adequate compensation is never an easy matter. As the plaintiff in a personal injury lawsuit, the burden is on you to prove every element of the case – the accident, the defendant’s fault, your injuries and the amount of your damages – in order to prevail. The defendant, meanwhile, is most often represented by a team of insurance company lawyers who do nothing every day other than defend individuals and companies charged with personal injury and wrongful death. A common defense tactic is to try to shift the blame onto the plaintiff, claiming that your own negligence caused or contributed to the accident. If the insurance company lawyers can convince a jury that you were at least 50% at fault, then you will not be able to recover one penny, even if the other driver was 50% at fault as well. It takes a skilled and knowledgeable personal injury attorney to prove your case while at the same time fending off attacks from the insurance company’s lawyers.

At Johnson, Westra, Broecker, Whittaker & Newitt, P.C., we fight to get you the compensation you need and deserve following an injury. Recoverable damages may include:

  • Present medical expenses
  • Future medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Future diminished earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of consortium
  • Punitive damages

Not all cases go trial. The majority of personal injury cases in fact do settle without the need for a full trial. In addition to our litigation division, our firm maintains an active transactional practice with decades of experience negotiating deals that are favorable to our clients’ interests.
