Personal Injury

In just seconds, a serious injury accident dramatically changes lives. Accidents often have long-term repercussions that negatively affect your health and the physical and financial well being of your family.

At Baker and Oring, LLP, our attorneys' primary focus is on personal injury—a large body of law that addresses tort cases involving physical injury and/or death or financial harm resulting from wrongful conduct—which requires competent legal representation to obtain recovery of compensatory damages from the responsible party.

When you are involved in a personal injury accident, your first priority is regaining your health, but, you may also have questions related to important decisions, such as:

  • How do I get the medical treatment and rehabilitative care I need?
  • How will I pay my medical bills?
  • What should I do if the negligent party's insurance company offers me a quick settlement before I know the extent of my damages?
  • How soon after I am injured must I file a claim?
  • Against whom must I file a claim to protect my right to sue?
  • What if the person who caused my injury doesn't have insurance?

When someone else's negligence caused your injury, the most important decision—and one which may significantly affect the outcome of your case—is choosing a skilled attorney whom you can trust for legal advice, guidance, and advocacy.

The personal injury lawyers at Baker and Oring, LLP, are experienced in dealing with the critical issues and problems that you and your family may encounter following an injury accident. We take immediate action to help obtain medical care, preserve evidence, explain available the legal remedie, and protect your legal rights against responsible parties. Our firm blends resources and expertise derived from more than 100 years of combined experience to achieve the best possible result for each of our clients.

Retaining legal counsel at the earliest possible date not only allows for early investigation and thorough preparation of the case, but it improves chances for fair compensation and a timely settlement—avoiding the sometimes considerable time and expense involved in the litigation process. Early retention of counsel increases the odds of preserving evidence and including accurate witness testimony.  It also helps us assist our clients in legally required mitigation of damages.

Retaining our law firm as soon as possible can help in other ways. Over the years we have represented many clients who attempted to deal with insurance carriers on their own, but ultimately came to us for help after becoming frustrated by lowball settlement offers and unresponsive claims agents. The insurance companies have no incentive to offer full value for claims unless they are faced with the threat of legal action by knowledgeable attorneys who have the knowledge and skills to prevail in court. The insurance companies may try to manipulate you into giving a statement before you have contacted an attorney. You should avoid giving such a statement and allow our offices handle all communications with insurance carriers. This simple may make all the difference in your case's outcome.

We do not charge any fee for representation unless we obtain a recovery for you. Unlike many other attorneys, we do not normally charge a fee for handling property damage claims incident to a personal injury claim. In fact, most other law firms leave their clients to fend for themselves against the insurance companies when it comes to negotiating property damage issues. Even though we do not usually charge a fee for settling property damage claims, you will find that we put great effort into obtaining the best possible outcome for our clients when negotiating vehicle damage, diminution of value, total loss, or loss of use claims. In most cases this is one of the first tangible results of our efforts that our clients experience.  And, we consider this an opportunity to show our dedication to protection of our clients' interests at the outset.
