Along with death and injuries, car, motorcycle, and truck accidents can also cause financial devastation. Victims unable to work may lose everything: their homes, savings, cars, college funds as well as their dreams for the future could all disappear if they accept a settlement that does not cover the cost of medical care, lost wages, psychological distress, and property damage.
That’s why you should contact the experienced legal team at Betras, Kopp & Markota if you or a family member has been involved in a wreck. BKM has helped hundreds of Valley families rebuild lives shattered by accidents. The key to our success: we’re the local law firm big enough to take on the giant insurance companies that do everything possible to pay victims far less than they deserve.
Because complex commercial litigation can be extremely costly, business people who can’t afford the high hourly fees charged by “white shoe” law firms can find themselves at a serious disadvantage if the parties on the other side of the table have deep pockets.
Fortunately, BKM levels the playing field by offering contingency fee arrangements to select commercial clients. If you are a business owner being squeezed by a big-money investor, a firm battling a hostile takeover, or are involved in a dispute with a partner whose financial strength far exceeds your own, contact us today to arrange a no-cost consultation. If we believe your case has merit, we will invest our time, talent, and resources to help you win at the negotiating table or in court.
Don’t lose everything you worked so hard to achieve. You can afford to fight back when you call Betras, Kopp & Markota, the local law firm big enough to take on the corporate giants.
Remember this: even though insurance companies spend millions of dollars on TV (way more than attorneys) to convince you they are your good neighbors, or that they want you to place your family in their good hands, or that they are just a bunch of funny cavemen or friendly lizards who want to take care of you, insurance adjusters have one goal in life: to pay you as little as possible for your claim. That’s why the first words out of an adjuster’s mouth are often, “Now, there’s no need for you to contact a lawyer…”
But, of course, there is. Adjusters know that victims who retain skilled attorneys receive settlements that are, on average, 40% higher than those who try to deal with insurers on their own. Don’t settle for less, trust Betras, Kopp & Markota to fight for the money you and your family needs and deserves.
The fact that doctors and others in the medical field are held in high esteem should not blind anyone to the nation’s medical malpractice epidemic or cause victims and their families to think twice about seeking justice and monetary compensation if they have been injured by a negligent, careless, or incompetent health care professional or facility.
Here are the shocking medical malpractice statistics:
Medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death in the United States, behind heart disease and cancer:
According to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), over 225,000 people die each year due to various types of medical malpractice;
12,000 deaths are caused by unnecessary surgery;
7,000 deaths are related to medication errors in hospitals;
20,000 deaths a year caused by other errors in hospitals;
80,000 deaths per year are a result of preventable infections in hospitals;
106,000 deaths result from non-error, adverse effects of medication.
Being charged with a criminal offense by local, state, or federal authorities can lead to life-changing consequences for both the accused and their families. Aside from the possibility of being imprisoned for months or years, being convicted of a crime could cost you your current job, your standard of living, your reputation, even your marriage and relationships with other family members and friends. And that holds true even if you are charged with and convicted of seemingly “minor” misdemeanors.
Because a conviction of any kind can impact every aspect of your life for years- if not decades- you should immediately contact an experienced, highly-skilled criminal defense attorney like the members of the legal team at Betras, Kopp, and Markota if you are ever charged with a crime.
