Personal Injury Lawsuits
Whether intentional or not, the careless and negligent acts of others can result in serious injury or death. Defective products, hazardous conditions, improper safety measures, unsafe driving practices and more are common causes of injuries where a personal injury lawsuit may be the ideal path for victims to pursue. If the court determines that another party (or parties) are ‘at fault’ and/or liable for damages or injuries, that party may be forced by the court to financially compensate the victims.
Our firm has extensive experience working and negotiating with insurance companies representing third parties in a personal injury lawsuit. Don’t get steamrolled by an insurance company looking to settle fast for less than your case is worth.
Common Types of Accidents Resulting in Personal Injury Cases Involve:
- Auto accidents
- Truck accidents
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accident
- Drunk driving
- Pedestrian accidents
- Boat accident injuries
- Work accidents
- Slip and falls
- Faulty products
- Medical malpractice
- Professional negligence
- Drug recalls
- And more…
If you have been injured as the result of any of the above, consult with our firm today for free and find out how much you may be owed.
Personal Injury Case: potential damages awarded
Personal injury cases may result in compensation awarded for two types of damages: punitive and compensatory.
Compensatory Damages: those awards intended to restore the injured party financially to the position they were in prior to sustaining the injury. This often includes awards intended to pay medical bills, rehabilitation, lost wages and more.
Punitive Damages: awards for punitive damages are intended to serve as a ‘punishment’ or penalty imposed on the party at fault and liable. This meant as a deterrent to the bad actor as well as others, hopefully preventing further injuries in the future.
Common Damages You May Be Eligible to Receive Compensation for Include:
- Medical bills
- Lost income
- Emotional injury
- Loss of consortium
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
- Future medical bills and care
- Wrongful Death
- Harm to one’s reputation

Greatly Exceeded Expectations
Mark Germain was recommended to me by my realtor and close friend who is very active in the community. I spoke with Mark’s office over the phone to discuss my speeding ticket and to define what we would consider a successful outcome to the hearing for my citation. Not only did Mark Germain meet the target for a “win” but he surpassed it by having the ticket downgraded to the lowest possible (6-9 mph over) rather than the 30+ mph over as the officer alleged. On top of that, adjudication was withheld so there were no points assessed and my insurance will not be impacted! Thank you Mark, Bryan McCarthy, Breanne Harris, and the entire staff!
Mark Germain was extremely kind, patient, diligent and caring. He always made me feel like he genuinely cared about me and the outcome of my case. He was persistent in his pursuit to get me the best possible outcome and walked me through every step of the way. Aside from being a great attorney, he is a genuinely good person. I highly recommend him. His staff was very professional and helpful as well.
When I needed a lawyer I immediately knew who to contact. Mark Germain not only exceeded my expectations but went above and beyond. He was very easy to consult with along with providing help along the way. He eased my woes and answered all questions I had. His staff at the office was always readily available and kept me updated through this very long process. I highly recommend Mark Germain for any of your needs.
