LEADING THE FIGHT AGAINST BP
Our firm’s experience fighting corporate giants led the court overseeing the BP Oil Spill litigation to select HHK partner, Steve Herman, as Co-Lead Counsel for the victims of the spill. The BP Oil Spill is widely considered to be the worst offshore maritime disaster in American history. Eleven offshore workers died and many more were severely injured. As Co-Lead Counsel, Steve is leading the charge to hold BP accountable for its gross failures that led to this tragic offshore maritime accident.
WHY FILE A PERSONAL INJURY LAWSUIT?
When an injury victim files a lawsuit, they are given the opportunity to recover monetary compensation for losses they incurred because of the negligence of another individual or company. While filing a lawsuit may not be your first priority after a serious accident, an experienced personal injury attorney can help you determine the totality of your current and future losses and file a claim seeking that amount from the party responsible for your injury.
In a personal injury lawsuit, an attorney may seek monetary compensation for the following:
- Past and Future Medical Expenses
- Lost Wages
- Loss of Earning capacity
- Physical and Mental Pain and Suffering
- Loss of Enjoyment of Life
- Scarring and Disfigurement
- Permanent Disability
If a wrongful death occurred, a personal injury attorney may seek compensation for burial expenses, loss of support, loss of household services, and mental pain and suffering.
Monetary damages are designed to restore the personal injury victim financially, physically, and emotionally. While a lawsuit cannot cure an injury or bring back a lost loved one, it can relieve some of the financial strains imposed upon a family after a serious accident that results in injury or death.
