Swanson Law, LLC handles a wide variety of personal injury matters, including, motor vehicle accidents, premises liability (i.e. slip and falls or other accidents wherein the owner of land or a business may be liable for injuries), product liability, worker’s compensation, dog bites, assault and battery and more. 

We understand that in addition to the physical pain you are experiencing after an accident, there are a number of other circumstances that can cause a great deal of stress and confusion.  What if I am unable to work?  What do I say to my employer if I am unable to work and is there alternative compensation available to me if I am unable to work?  How and when will my vehicle be repaired?  Should I contact my insurance company?  Do I have to speak to the other party’s insurance company?  What happens if the other party was charged with a motor vehicle violation or a crime?  If you are like most people, you will be faced with one or more of these issues within days after an accident. 

Our firm will not only help you answer these questions and advise you on what steps you should take in the days and weeks following an accident, but we will take immediate action to protect your interests and advise you how to avoid the many pitfalls that can be detrimental to any claim you might have against the party or parties that caused your injury.  Indeed, it is imperative that you or someone acting on your behalf obtain legal consultation from a qualified attorney as soon as practically feasible.  Swanson Law, LLC realizes that even obtaining legal consultation after an accident can present logistical problems if you are unable to drive or obtain transportation or if you are still in the hospital.  Coordinating how and when you can get to an attorney’s office is the last thing you should have to worry about.  For your comfort and convenience, we are more than willing to come to your location on a day and time that works best for you and your family.

Although many accidents which cause personal injuries are incidental to living in today’s fast paced world, this does not mean that you should bear the physical, emotional and financial burden without just compensation.  Contact Attorney John Swanson to schedule an initial consultation so that you understand your legal rights and how the personal injury claims process works.   

Call our office to schedule an initial consultation.  If you require immediate legal consultation outside of our normal business hours, Attorney Swanson can be reached on his cellular telephone at (860)306-8088.
