Knowledge and experience. Dedication and compassion. Unwavering advocacy. These are the principles that guide the personal injury attorneys at Morton & Gettys as they represent individuals who are facing challenging circumstances, often arising from car and trucking accidents, instances of medical malpractice, defective products and other situations that involve traumatic injury or even death. We represent clients injured on the road or on the job, working to help them recover both physically and financially.

Our attorneys have represented clients in a wide range of cases, including car and trucking accidents, wrongful-death actions, work-related injuries, medical malpractice, construction defects, and dog bites. Often, these cases are more complicated than they may initially appear. At times, there is more than one party who may bear responsibility, which means that there are multiple insurance companies involved, and, frequently, disputes arise as to who was at fault. Moreover, injured victims don’t always know what all they are entitled to recover when they have been harmed by a third party’s negligent or reckless conduct.  Our veteran lawyers have the experience to make sure that your rights are protected and that you are treated fairly by the at-fault party’s insurance company. We work diligently to secure the best possible outcome for our clients, fighting for every measure of compensation afforded under the law so that they have the financial resources necessary to put their lives back together.

We also represent injured employees in workers’ compensation cases, shepherding them through a complicated and arduous system. At times, workers are tempted to try to handle the claims themselves, a decision they may regret when the insurance company’s attorney tries raise questions about the nature or the extent of an injury or the necessity of specific medical care, even when your doctor recommends the treatment. In these instances, injured employees need skilled legal representation to push back against these kind of tactics.

Our personal injury lawyers have extensive experience in wrongful-death cases as well as other matters involving catastrophic, life-altering injuries. We understand that no amount of money can fully compensate our clients for their physical and emotional pain when they either lose a loved one or suffer a life-long debilitating injury, but we do everything that is possible to make sure that they receive enough compensation so that they don’t have to worry about their financial well-being in the aftermath of a tragedy.
