Our Personal Injury Lawyers Work for You, Not the Insurance Company
The other party’s insurance carrier will likely contact you shortly after your accident. Depending on the type of injury, this could be a property, auto, medical malpractice, worker’s compensation, or liability insurance adjuster. In our experience as personal injury lawyers, some insurance adjusters make it difficult for you to recover damages on a legitimate claim. That is why we urge you to call us before you speak with an adjuster.
We invite you to call our firm for a free case evaluation. D. Miller & Associates, PLLC™ will protect your rights while we seek recovery for your injury and resulting losses.

Our Attorneys Can Build a Case Proving Liability for Your Personal Injury
To recover damages, we must prove that the other party is liable for your injuries. To do so, we will answer the following questions:
- Did the defendant owe you a duty of care to avoid injuring you?
- Was this duty of care breached in some manner?
- Did this negligence cause your injuries?
- Do you now have financial damages because of your injuries?
Examples of negligence and the potentially liable parties will vary depending on the type of personal injury case you have. For example:
A motorist may be financially responsible for your injuries if they were speeding, drinking and driving, driving distracted, disobeying traffic laws, or engaging in reckless driving behaviors. A car or auto parts manufacturer could bear liability if engine problems, faulty brakes, defective tires, or another vehicle problem contributed to your injuries.
If a broken traffic signal or negligent road maintenance caused your accident, liability could rest with a government or private roadway owner. Furthermore, if your collision involved a commercial vehicle driver, their employer may be vicariously liable.
If you suffered injuries because of negligent or dangerous property conditions, you may have a premises liability case. These cases include assault due to negligent security, falls due to broken sidewalks, ripped carpet, or cracked tiles, and swimming pool accidents stemming from a lack of fencing and other safety measures. Liable parties may include a homeowner, business owner, or renter.
Medical malpractice liability can rest with doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists, laboratory technicians, or medical facilities. Examples of malpractice include but are not limited to surgical errors, misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose, and medication errors.
Examples of workplace negligence may include a lack of safety guidelines or safety equipment, failure to warn employees about the presence of harmful substances, or failure to maintain equipment. You may have grounds for a workers’ compensation claim, or you may have a case against a liable third party, such as an equipment supplier or job-site owner.
Personal Injury Damages You May Recover
Depending on the severity of your injuries, length of recovery, and when or if you can return to your pre-injury activities, you could be entitled to financial recovery for damages such as:
- Medical bills, including the cost of ambulance transportation, emergency room treatment, surgery, hospital stays, and follow-up care
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning ability
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Loss of consortium or companionship
- Full or partial disability
- Wrongful death damages, including final expenses and other costs associated with the loss of a family member
