Workplace Accident? Escape the Financial Nightmare

by Cary Graham | April 17th, 2017

We have some hardworking folks in Norfolk. It’s ingrained in our culture to work hard and earn every penny on our paycheck. Our families depend on those paychecks, and if we miss just one, it can quickly leave us in a financial nightmare. That’s why an on-the-job injury can turn any family upside down. If you’re injured, you can’t work. If you can’t work, you won’t get paid. If you don’t get paid, you may struggle to put food on the table and keep a roof over your head.

At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we believe no Norfolk family should have to wonder where their next meal is coming from, but if you’ve been injured on the job, that could soon become your reality. You might think that workers’ compensation would pay your medical expenses and help provide for your family while you recover, but that’s not always the case. In reality, injured workers take far less than they deserve every day from workers’ comp insurance companies, leaving their families financially compromised.

Thankfully, there’s a better way. If you’ve been injured in a workplace accident, call our experienced Norfolk workers’ comp lawyers today for a free consultation. We’ll review your case at no obligation to you and fight to get you the maximum benefits possible. Your family’s future may depend on what you do next. Contact us today.

Car Accident? It’s Time to Take a Stand

by Cary Graham | April 10th, 2017

For those lucky enough to survive a serious car accident, a sense of “what might have happened?” always lingers. Would I have survived if they had been going 5 mph faster? What if I hadn’t braked when I did? Could I have lost so much more? These are frightening thoughts, especially considering the injuries you did sustain. Make no mistake, you’ve survived a life-threatening accident, and the person who caused it could have taken your life or the lives of those in your vehicle.

That’s an important point to remember when considering whether or not you should file a personal injury lawsuit for your injuries. By doing so, you’re taking a stand for yourself, your family, and other drivers on the road who could be injured or killed next time by the same driver. It needs to be stated loud and clear that driving while distracted, driving aggressively, or under the influence is not welcome in Norfolk. You do that by calling an experienced lawyer to defend your rights, and that’s exactly what we do at Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers.

If you’ve been injured by someone else’s negligence, call an experienced Norfolk car accident attorney today. We’ll hold the responsible party accountable for their carelessness and fight to get you maximum compensation for your injuries. You can’t afford to go this alone. Contact us today.

The Many Forms of Nursing Home Abuse

by Cary Graham | April 3rd, 2017

Taking care of aging loved ones isn’t easy, especially if you’ve never been a caretaker. It can require around-the-clock care–something you and your family simply can’t provide. That level of care is only available from professionals. That’s why you and your family made the decision to find the best nursing home facility your aging loved one could afford, and it was the right decision. Unfortunately, not every facility lives up to the promises it makes.

Nursing home abuse and neglect come in many forms. As a family member, it’s important that you are aware of the signs that nursing home abuse or neglect exist, so that you can protect your loved one from harm. Common signs include:

  • Pale complexion
  • Untreated bedsores, bruises, or cuts
  • Excessive weight loss
  • Fleas or lice in the resident’s room
  • Poor personal hygiene
  • Changes to medications
  • Unpleasant odors
  • Torn clothing or missing personal items

If your aging loved one shows any of these signs, they may be the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect. Call an experienced Norfolk nursing home abuse lawyer today to learn about your loved one’s rights. At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we’ll fully investigate the extent of the abuse and hold the responsible facility accountable. Act immediately to ensure your loved one’s safety. Contact us today.

Medical Professionals Prepare for Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

by Cary Graham | March 27th, 2017

Most medical professionals in Virginia work extremely hard. It’s not uncommon for nurses and doctors to have double shifts, late nights, and dozens of patients under their supervision at any time. The opportunity to make a mistake is always present, which is why many medical professionals and organizations have medical malpractice insurance. They know that there’s a chance a decision or action they take could cause harm to the patient, so they prepare themselves for that eventuality.

As a patient who has suffered due to medical negligence and/or malpractice, you know just how hard it can be to decide whether or not to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. You want justice for what you’ve been through, but you’re apprehensive about suing. At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we understand that concern, which is why we offer every medical malpractice victim in Norfolk a free consultation. Our experienced Virginia medical malpractice attorneys can help you understand your rights and how much your injuries might end up costing you.

If you or someone you love suffered due to medical malpractice, give us a call for your free, no obligation consultation. We’ll fully investigate the cause of your injuries and fight to get you compensation for additional medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.

Injured? 3 Questions to Ask Yourself

by Cary Graham | March 20th, 2017

If you’ve been injured, you’re probably wondering whether or not you have a personal injury case. You’re not alone. The majority of the calls we receive from accident victims are about finding an answer to that very question. Although a free consultation from Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers is a simple way to find out if you have a case, you can ask yourself 3 questions before you make the call to determine if a lawyer might be able to help:

Was the accident caused by someone else’s negligence? Whether you were involved in a car crash or a slip and fall incident, the person or organization at fault should be responsible for your injuries. If someone other than yourself caused your accident, you may have a personal injury claim.

Were you injured? Seems fundamental, but it’s an important component to any personal injury case. To have a personal injury claim, you need to have sustained injuries due to your accident. If you did, you may have a personal injury claim.

Do you expect to incur expenses due to your injuries? To simplify a complex process, personal injury claims are essentially about recovering compensation for expenses or hardships you incur due to your injuries. From medical expenses to lost wages, you may be entitled to significant compensation for your injuries.

If you answered “yes” to all of the above questions, chances are you have a personal injury claim and should consult with a personal injury attorney right now. Call today for your free consultation. Our law firm wants to review your case for free and fight to get you every dollar you deserve.

What You Need to Understand about the Insurance Industry

by Cary Graham | March 13th, 2017

How do insurance companies make billions of dollars in profit every year? It’s simple math. They take in more insurance premiums than they pay out in claims. How do they do that? By running millions of dollars in ads that get you to sign up while denying or minimizing claims that come in. As long as they keep that scale tipping in their favor, the profits continue to roll in.

The thing you need to understand about the insurance industry is that although their marketing efforts center on how they’ll protect you in the event of an accident, your insurance company is a business first. Altruism is far from their first motivation. In fact, from the moment your accident occurs, you become a liability to them. In business speak, you get moved to accounts payable, meaning they owe you money. It’s in their best interests to minimize your claim, and they’ve become really good at it.

If you’ve been injured in a car accident, don’t try to take on the insurance company alone. Call a Norfolk car accident attorney at Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers for a free consultation. We’ve been dealing with insurance companies for more than 30 years. We know what your case is worth, and we’ll fight to get you every dollar you deserve. Contact us today for your free, no obligation consultation.

Wrongful Death? Don’t Face the Future Alone

by Cary Graham | March 6th, 2017

Anger. Confusion. Sadness. If you’ve had someone tragically taken from you, those are just a few of the many emotions you’re cycling through. The death of a loved one is hard, no matter the circumstances. When his or her death could have been avoided or was caused by someone else’s negligence, it’s natural to feel angry. After all, you’ve lost more than a companion; you’ve lost the potential that loved one had for the future. Now that he or she is gone, you’re left to face the future alone.

That future is going to look quite different than it would have if the careless individual or company hadn’t caused your loved one’s death. Everything that took two before must be done with only one. That’s a sad reality to contemplate, especially when you consider the financial implications.

by Cary Graham | February 27th, 2017

Certain life experiences stick out in our minds more than others, such as the day you met your spouse—or the day your child was born. Unfortunately for some Norfolk families, the memory of their child’s birth can be more painful than joyful.

You’re left with many more questions than answers, and the medical staff simply can’t answer them all.

Along with the medical implications come substantial financial complications. That’s why you should call an experienced Norfolk birth injury lawyer to help you navigate the financial concerns that at this point are unavoidable. Your child deserves to have the best possible life, which requires the best medical treatment.

If your child suffered a birth injury, give us a call today for a free consultation. An experienced birth injury lawyer can investigate the circumstances that led up to your child’s injury and fight to get your family the maximum amount of compensation.

Norfolk Consumers Deserve Better

by Cary Graham | February 20th, 2017

We’re only a couple months into 2017 and already there have been a number of new defective products released on the market. That’s no surprise. Every year, manufacturers skip or skim over important safety testing in an effort to get their products on store shelves as quickly as possible. That often leads to products shipping with significant and even life-threatening defects the manufacturer may or may not know about. And unfortunately, it’s the consumer who pays the price.

At Lowell Stanley, we help the victims of defective products get the compensation they deserve for their injuries. If you’ve been injured or suffered harm from any of the below products or conditions, contact us immediately:

Contact our experienced Norfolk defective product attorneys today for your free, no obligation consultation. We’re ready to hold the manufacturer accountable for what you’ve been through. You could be eligible to receive compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. Don’t wait to get the legal help you need. Contact us right now.

Maximizing Your Car Accident Injury Claim Isn’t Automatic

by Cary Graham | February 13th, 2017

Most every vehicle out on the road today has certain standard safety features, such as airbags and seatbelts. These features are intended to do one thing: save your life in the event of an accident. They don’t require you to hit a button at just the right time or speak any command out loud at the moment of impact. They simply do their job when the time comes.

Wouldn’t it be great if there were a device or service that automatically saved your financial future after an accident? Moments following your accident, this revolutionary technology would already be calculating what your accident is going to cost you and negotiating with the insurance company on your behalf to secure that amount. That would truly be incredible. Unfortunately, no such technology exists. But a Norfolk car accident attorney at Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers can help.

If you’ve been injured in a car accident, give us a call for a free consultation. We’ll fully investigate your case to determine the true worth of your accident and fight to get you every penny you deserve. Contact our law firm today for your free, no obligation consultation. If we believe we can help, we’ll do so at no cost to you until we get you money.
