Personal Injury is an area of law which is comprised of tort claims in which one person has been injured by the actions of another. Examples of personal injury cases include:
- vehicle accidents,
- slip/trip and fall,
- elderly abuse,
- child abuse,
- dog or other animal attacks,
- sexual abuse, and
- wrongful death.
The Personal Injury Department of Hiden, Rott & Oertle, LLP, (HR&O) handles a variety of tort claims from a simple car accident to more complex cases such as professional malpractice. Since its inception in 1993, the Personal Injury Department of HR&O has carved as a reputation throughout California as a Firm well known for taking on the tough cases which other attorneys decline. With millions of dollars obtained on behalf of our clients, HR&O is the first choice for injured parties.
At HR&O, we represent Plaintiffs throughout California and other states, in all stages of personal injury cases, from date of injury through trial. Unlike other law firms who will only represent a client up to the point of litigation, your attorneys at HR&O will file lawsuits to protect your rights and take other steps to ensure you receive aggressive, and competent, legal representation.
While always ready to file a lawsuit to protect your case, HR&O also recognizes the usefulness in utilizing pre-litigation settlement tactics such as mediation, arbitration and settlement discussions in an effort to settle your case quickly, efficiently and in a manner most effective for the needs of any individual case.
Many clients of HR&O have suffered catastrophic injuries but have no medical insurance or financial means to pay for their bills. If this is the case, HR&O can assist in helping you locate competent medical care and assistance without the burden of immediate payments for care. Based on the reputation of all HR&O attorneys, medical providers, in fields as diverse as acupuncture or chiropractic care to surgical intervention, will provide treatment, without payment up front from the patient. Freed from the unnecessary stress of medical payments, you are then able to concentrate on your recovery rather than finances. Medical bills will then be paid when you case settles rather than you worrying about payment immediately when hurt. HR&O will also help you to obtain a rental vehicle, alternate housing, coordinate with your employer for time off or assist in other areas, depending on your individual needs. If your medical condition is such that you cannot come to our office, our attorneys will make arrangements to visit you at the hospital, your home or another location which best suits your needs.
Our legal assistance in Personal Injury cases also involves the coordination and/or payment of medical care, protecting your credit rating (in the event you already received care which you cannot pay for) and ensuring that your insurance rates will not increase, if you are involved in a car accident. HR&O can even assist you when the person who hurt you has no or little insurance or if you were involved in a car accident but do not have insurance yourself.
At HR&O, we pride ourselves in offering the highest caliber of assistance and representation to our clients. We will provide you not only with the cell phone numbers of all our paralegals, but also all attorneys, including partners, within the Firm, giving you easy, and immediate, access to our Firm.
