The Corson & Johnson Law Firm successfully represents people with major claims involving wrongful death or catastrophic injuries (such as brain injury, paralysis, disfigurement, or disability).
Don’t Let Important Evidence Be Lost
When a person suffers a serious personal injury, time is of the essence. Important evidence may be lost that can make the difference in winning your case or losing your rights. Frequently, employers, neighbors, friends, or insurance agents offer well intentioned, but inexperienced (and even wrong) advice.
Recovering Lost Wages, Medical Expenses, and Other Losses
When we take a case, we start preparing the evidence as if the case will go to trial. Part of the work involves proving liability: finding and securing evidence showing what happened, and why. Another part of the work involves evidence of a person’s harms and losses, so that later this information can be presented and fair compensation can be determined. Occasionally, a case will involve developing evidence of punitive damages, which are intended to punish a defendant for outrageous, malicious, or reckless misconduct, and to deter others from doing the same. Our reputation as successful trial attorneys often helps to resolve cases through mediation or settlement.

18-wheeler truck collisions
Collisions involving 18-wheelers are in the news almost every day. Legal claims involving these collisions are more complicated since they involve dealing with a business, federal trucking regulations, and the nuances of trucking company insurance coverage. CONTINUE READING
Unfortunately, it takes injuries, or sometimes even deaths, before manufacturers are forced to remove their unsafe products from the market. Dangerously defective products may still be found in our homes, offices and schools. CONTINUE READING
Deaths are almost always tragic, but when they are caused by the wrongful conduct of another, families often want a case to be pursued, not only to bring justice, but also for greater protection to the community. CONTINUE READING
