A Versatile and Knowledgeable Personal Injury Lawyer

Accidents happen, but sometimes they have life-changing consequences. If you suffered serious injuries at the result of someone else’s negligent behavior, you can seek compensation for your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and more. Mr. Schatz will work to gather evidence that supports your position and proves that your injuries were the direct result of the defendant’s negligence. Michael may try to settle your case outside of court or represent you aggressively in litigation if necessary.

Auto Accidents: Michael represents victims of car, motorcycle, and truck accidents caused by negligence.

Premises Liability: Attorney Schatz also represents injury victims seeking compensation from property owners who negligently failed to maintain reasonably safe conditions on their premises in cases often referred to as “slip and fall” or “trip and fall” lawsuits.

When Should You Call a Workers’ Compensation Attorney?

If you get injured while on the job, whether you are a construction worker or an office assistant, you have the right to seek workers’ compensation benefits to get some income while you recover. You may not need an attorney if your workers’ compensation claim is clear-cut and there are no disputes. However, employers and insurance companies often try to deny, delay, or minimize these claims. Don’t let them; contact Schatz Law Firm to get professional legal assistance in your workers’ comp claim. Attorney Schatz will communicate and negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf and represent you in hearings if the dispute can’t be resolved through negotiations.
