We Get Fair Compensation For The Wrongly Injured
When people are injured in car crashes and other accidents, the insurance claims adjuster usually shows up shortly after you file a claim. You can expect a lowball offer that you will be encouraged to sign as quickly as possible. These offers tend to underestimate the long-term costs of follow-up medical care and the extent of lost income and earning capacity. In some cases, the side effects of injuries do not appear until weeks or months after the accident. This means that signing a settlement offer early could mean never being compensated for the full extent of your injuries.
At The Law Office of Kyle D. Johnston, LLC, we know the tactics that the insurance industry uses to keep settlement offers low because attorney Johnston began his career working for the insurance industry. We know how to hold the insurance company accountable and make sure that you get the compensation you deserve.

We Fight Hard For The Benefits And Compensation You Need
Workers’ compensation benefits cover all your medical expenses and some of your lost wages: typically, two-thirds of your average weekly wage. If you are permanently disabled by the injury, you may also receive a lump-sum payment for your loss.
In some cases, injured workers can also file a personal injury suit against a negligent third party. This can provide much-needed financial support to people with serious injuries and families who lost loved ones in work accidents. Any compensation you receive in a third-party suit is in addition to your workers’ compensation benefits.
