Des Moines Brain Damage Lawyer
The cost of a spinal cord injury or brain damage sustained in an accident is substantial. The law office of Roxanne Conlin & Associates works with economists, life care planners, and medical experts in determining the full financial impact of spinal cord injuries and brain damage on accident victims. Using established cost data maintained by HMOs and insurance companies, we document costs associated with surgeries, in-home care, physical therapy, prescription drugs, and lost earnings. While insurance companies typically provide compensation for economic loss, they don't always provide compensation for non-economic losses such as diminished quality of life. As your lawyer, Ms. Conlin uses visual aides to indicate how our clients' lives have been irrevocably changed by a spinal cord or brain injury, demanding an appropriate level of compensation for pain and suffering.

Insurance Companies — Committed to Reducing Their Losses, Not Yours
Insurance companies are interested in reducing their losses. Consequently, many have cost-reduction programs to decrease the amount they pay in claims dollars. In order to avoid costly pay-outs, claims agents may try to convince injury victims to settle early instead of litigate. Or, they may argue a person's injuries are not as severe as alleged or are due to other factors than the accident in question. To this end, an insurance company may ask you to release your medical records, provide a statement to their attorney, or submit to exam from their doctor. Speak to a lawyer you can trust, before doing any of these.
