Personal Injury

Personal Injury cases are always traumatic. Whether the injury is minor, severe or results in death, the victim(s) suffers some level of emotional distress beyond the actual injury. Casteel & Carson ensure that you as the victim or family of the victim get proper compensation from the party responsible for the injury.

  • Auto accidents – The responsible party’s insurance company will always try to settle a claim for the minimal amount. Our responsibility is to make sure the amount determined is fair and will cover all damages and expenses, including aspects such as rental cars until your vehicle has been fully repaired or replaced, medical expenses, lost wages, etc. Keep in mind, it may make more sense to just brush off a minor accident if there is minimal damage and no injuries. The process may be more complex than the severity warrants.
  • Wrongful death or accident – Death or injury may be due to negligence or even intentional. In a wrongful death or accident claim, Casteel & Carson will make sure all appropriate damages are compensated for. Another reason to follow-up on a case would be to prevent it from happening to more people later on. Damages may include:
    • Medical, hospital, funeral and burial expenses;
    • Compensation for the decedent's pain and suffering, during any period of consciousness between the time of injury and death;
    • Losses suffered by the decedent's spouse, children, or next of kin, including:
      • loss of financial support
      • loss of service
      • loss of gifts or other valuable gratuities
      • loss of parental training and guidance
      • loss of society and companionship
  • Negligence – typically, negligence is an act or behavior unintentional in consequence that causes you damage. It can be carelessness in one's actions, such that the person responsible is not exercising the standards of care required of a person driving a car, for example. The services provided by Casteel & Carson ensure that you receive maximal compensation for the damages you suffered.
