There are countless ways in which someone can suffer a personal injury. Whether you have been injured at home, on the job, in a motor vehicle accident or some other way, the result is the same. You or someone you love has been hurt. The pain isn’t just physical or emotional. Getting just compensation after your accident to cover medical bills can be a challenge, especially when insurance companies want to pay out as little as possible. And when medical bills and lost wages are piling up, this adds stress to the whole situation.
In the insurance industry, adjusters will often attempt to offer a settlement as low as possible to someone who has suffered a personal injury. The less an injured person will settle for, the more profit there is for the insurance company and its shareholders. Insurance adjusters will often make an initial offer that is between 25% – 50% lower than the maximum amount allowed in a policy.
However, these low-ball assessments aren’t always the result of greed. Insurance adjusters have a duty to judge cases based on the evidence presented, and much of their assessment hinges on documentation. Gathering the right documentation is crucial after an accident, and not every doctor knows how to document injuries correctly for insurance companies. In cases where additional injuries appear after an initial assessment, as happens so often after car accidents, it can be even harder.
If you live in Hernando County or Tampa Bay area, the attorneys at Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group are ready to help you in your personal injury case. Whether you need to make sure your insurance documentation is correct or if you need to challenge an insurance company in court, we will be there for you every step of the way.
The Importance of Documentation
Having as much documentation as possible regarding your personal injury case goes a long way toward strengthening your claim. It is important, however, to have the right kind of documentation so that your insurance claim is not denied or reduced. That’s the last thing you need after you’ve been injured. One of our personal injury attorneys will work with you on your claim to help ensure fair compensation after you’ve been hurt. Having photographs, detailed medical bills, record of all expenses related to your claim, and sound legal advice can help you in your pursuit of proper compensation.
Our Promise to You
In Hernando County, the attorneys of Kemp, Ruge & Green are the personal injury lawyers to trust. At the core of our practice are two major principles. We firmly believe that our clients should be kept informed at all times about their case. If there is progress being made, you’ll be immediately informed. From the first phone call you place to us, we will return your call within 24 hours. You have our word on that. We will continue that promise of a 24-hour turn around every call you make to us after you hire us, too.
Our second promise to you is that because it can sometimes take a long time for a case to work its way through the legal system, we want you to stay informed. Because a case can take several months before it’s finally settled, we make it our policy to contact our clients at least once every two weeks. Even if there is no progress to report, we want to be sure that we keep you informed.
It isn’t an everyday occurrence to be involved in a personal injury accident where you need an attorney. That’s why we are here to answer any questions you may have about your case. We want you to focus on recovering from your injuries and getting on with your life while we continue to fight on your side and ensure that you receive fair compensation for your case.
Our Personal Injury Practice Areas
Any number of accidents can be classified as personal injury accidents. Some of our practice areas include:
Dog Bite Injuries
Nursing Home Abuse
Slip & Fall Accidents
Spinal Cord Injuries
Integrity & Transparency
Almost every Internet website or yellow page listing for attorneys will promise potential clients a “free consultation” or “legal analysis”. Often they will also say that there is “no fee unless you win your case”. In the area of personal injury law, such promises are standard in the state of Florida and around the country. Everyone likes the idea of getting something for free, but the emphasis is placed on these things just so that potential clients will call them and engage their services.
Such promises can be misleading, especially for those who have never needed to contact an attorney before. We also offer these benefits to all of our clients. However, we believe that those things are simply good customer service and at Kemp, Ruge & Green we go the extra mile for our clients. Because of this, our firm has earned many testimonials and professional awards. We know how to go above and beyond what our clients expect.

That makes us a part of a group that consists of less than 1% of all attorneys in the United States.
