Personal Injury

Personal injury is a general legal term for an injury to the body or mind, as opposed to an injury to property. Automobile accidents are the most common type of personal injury but can include injuries in the workplace, assault, medical and dental accidents. If the other party is at fault for your injuries, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Aside from compensation for your personal injuries, you may also be compensated for lost time from work as well as pain and suffering.

Dealing with insurance companies can be complicated and frustrating. You may have complex injuries. The other party may not have insurance. Your own insurance might be intransigent. At J. Anukem & Associates, we have the depth of experience, knowledge and skill to guide you through this difficult process. We can help you recover the maximum compensation possible for all your injuries and losses as we have done for clients in the past.
