Car Wreck

When you are hurt in a car crash, you need a lawyer to protect you. If you don’t have a good lawyer, insurance companies will take advantage of you. They will try to record your statement right after the wreck -- DO NOT GIVE A STATEMENT without your lawyer present. The insurance company may try to get you to sign away your claim, so DON'T SIGN ANYTHING without your lawyer’s approval.

Truck Wreck

I was just in an accident with a truck. What do I do?  Get everyone to safety, get or give emergency first aid, and call 911. Don’t move the vehicles before the authorities arrive unless safety require you to. Don’t leave the scene before law enforcement arrives (that is a crime) absent a medical emergency. 

Motorcycle Wreck

Get everyone to safety, get or give emergency first aid, and call 911. Don’t move anything before the police arrive unless necessary for safety. Don’t leave the scene before the police arrive (that’s a crime) unless required by a medical emergency.

Wrongful Death

When someone you love is killed by the actions (or inactions) of someone else, that is a Wrongful Death. Wrongful Death can happen in car, truck, or motorcycle accidents, drunk or distracted driving, workplace injuries, industrial accidents, fires, medical mistakes, fights, hunting accidents, drug overdoses, criminal events (even when punished in the criminal system), and many other situations.

Injury at Work

Work-related injuries can include any kind of hurt caused by your work. That commonly includes back pain, spine injuries like herniated or ruptured discs, cuts and gashes that need stitches, hand damage and carpal tunnel syndrome, head wounds, brain trauma including concussions, broken bones, mangled, crushed, or amputated limbs, serious health conditions from exposure to toxic substances on the job, and even death. Lewis Coppedge has helped injured workers receive financial compensation for their pain and suffering, mental anguish, past and future medical expenses, loss of present and future wages, disfigurement, disability, and more.

Insurance Company Abuse

If an insurance company denies your claim wrongfully, this can be a breach of the insurance company’s duty under the insurance policy. You can sometimes sue the insurance company to get the money that is owed to you for your claim plus your attorney’s fees. Please call Lewis Coppedge, P.C. to talk about your specific situation because there are many important details to these cases.

Physical or Mental Injuries

Personal injury refers to an injury to a person’s body, mind, or emotions. The injury often happens when someone else has been negligent. Car accidents and incidents at work usually cause personal injury cases. Personal injuries can also take place on someone else’s property. There could be a product or service that creates a personal injury.
