Richard Charles Martin, ESQ.
Our civil justice system through the 7th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution gives injured people a fair chance to receive justice for their damaged caused by the negligence and carelessness of others. An experienced personal injury lawyer is needed to hold defendants and their insurance companies accountable for their violation of public safety rules.
An accident can be devastating, especially when it requires a long physical and emotional recovery period, or the loss of a loved one. It’s difficult for those who haven’t suffered a serious personal injury to fully understand the financial burdens involved in the aftermath. Individuals and families that find themselves in these situations are oftentimes faced with significant lost wages, property damage, past medical expenses and future treatment costs, and pain and suffering. If this has brought you to our website, we are sorry, and appreciate you looking to us for help and would be honored to represent you.
