Personal Injury Practice

Suffering a serious or catastrophic injury can create both immediate and long-term devastating consequences, not only to the victim, but to his or her entire family. The combination of lost wages, sky rocketing medical expenses and the associated anxiety of observing a loved one suffer, can further traumatize family members whose struggle seems greatest at this time of immediate need.

While the civil justice system cannot return a personal injury victim to his or her previous life, it can provide compensation for those harmed through the fault of others. Vaka Law Group is uniquely positioned to provide our clients with the comprehensive legal skills necessary to achieve those goals of the civil justice system, and provide the best overall compensation opportunities for economic and non-economic damages due to injury. This process requires that all sources of recovery be identified, the insurance policies interpreted, the insurance company behavior analyzed and all reasonable legal skills be utilized to protect and keep the awards of a successful trial court judgment on appeal.

We feel it is important that our personal injury clients understand the full impact of their medical condition and identify who may be at fault. Our clients deserve a thorough understanding and appreciation of all relevant information to determine whether a settlement gesture from an insurer or Defendant is fair; and, to balance the risks and potential benefits that may actually be realized should litigation ensue.

The lawyers at Vaka Law Group are aggressive and have extensive experience in personal injury cases. Unlike most modern personal injury firms, we do not actively advertise to obtain such cases.
