The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that the average American has a 30 percent chance of being involved in a serious automobile accident in their lifetime. However, few of us are actually prepared for such an event. Many of us do not understand the nuts and bolts of the personal injury legal process until faced with it out of necessity- for ourselves or our loved ones.
For these reasons, the attorneys at Briggs & Wholey have authored a book in an effort to assist accident victims with personal injury claims. Maine Injury Law: A Reference Guide for Accident Victims has been written to help empower victims and their families when they have been affected by any type of serious personal injury, by offering insight into the world of civil personal injury law.
Whether you’re a victim of medical malpractice, a slip and fall, a trucking accident, a birthing injury, nursing home neglect, or in an automobile accident–this book is for you!
We want to help individuals, and their families, make informed decisions when faced with serious life-changing catastrophes.
Maine Injury Law: A Reference Guide for Accident Victims, has been written to help victims and their families understand what’s involved and how to deal with insurance companies, decide if legal recourse is necessary, and set expectations for the personal injury process-from choosing a lawyer, recommending client actions to protect and maximize their claim, to providing an overview of the entire litigation process.
The attorneys at Briggs & Wholey know that individuals harmed through the negligence of others are not only faced with the difficult task of understanding and responding to immediate short or long-term medical needs; but are also mired in the bureaucratic red tape of insurance claims, and experience financial issues due to accident costs, medical costs, and loss of family income. These issues are only compounded when the death of a loved one is involved. It is both devastating and overwhelming for victims and their families–coping becomes difficult.
These are challenges thousands of Maine families must confront each year when a loved one is harmed through intentional or negligent acts.
We are passionate about the rights of injured people and are both humbled and inspired by the trials and tribulations of affected families during such times of crisis. We are inspired by the love and stewardship of care families provide for an injured family member during times of need–often at great personal sacrifice. While we cannot change the fact that an accident has occurred, we sincerely hope that through this book, we can alleviate some angst regarding the legal process by providing a framework of knowledge from which to approach your unique circumstances, help rebuild your life and improve your chances for the successful settlement of your claim.
If we can offer some form of assistance to accident victims in Maine, by better enabling them to understand the claims process, the risks involved, as well their legal rights in seeking restitution, we will consider this book a success!
