My wife was in a car accident and suffered some injuries. Even though the driver had admitted fault, it was a very stressful situation for us. Working with Abel Law Firm was the best decision we could have possibly made. Luke was very professional, and best of all he eased our worries throughout the process. I would highly recommend using Abel Law Firm to anyone that was in need.

Compensation You May Receive
You can receive several different kinds of compensation for your accident-related injuries. This compensation is called damages. If someone else is responsible for your injuries, they may be liable for paying you three types of damages:
- Economic damages – These damages cover your past medical bills and medical treatment costs for your accident-related injuries as well as any future medical bills and treatment costs for those injuries. Economic damages also cover wage/income loss, related future wage/income loss, and property damage.
- Non-economic damages – These damages cover the emotional and mental impact your injuries have had on you, including pain, suffering, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment and quality of life, and loss of consortium.
- Punitive damages – These damages are awarded in rare cases where you can provide clear and convincing evidence that the person who injured you acted in an exceptionally reckless manner and with malice.
The Personal Injury Claims Process
After you hire an attorney from Abel Law Firm, we’ll start working hard for you. We’ll investigate your accident and collect evidence to try to determine the cause and who’s liable for your injuries. In many cases, we’ll negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf to try to obtain a settlement offer that covers the value of your claim. If that is unsuccessful, we’ll file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf and take your case to trial. We’ll use our best legal strategies to try to get you the maximum award you’re entitled to.
