     PERSONAL INJURY

     When you are injured in any kind of accident and someone else is at fault, you have the legal right to be compensated for your injuries.  That means you have a legal right to payment for medical bills, lost wages, mileage to and from medical appointments, pain and suffering, mental stress, losses in the enjoyment of your life, permanent scaring and disability. These are just some of the rights to payment you are legally entitled to receive, among others, depending on your situation.

 

     Insurance companies are very skilled at handling insurance claims. They are experts and do their best to pay the least possible on every injury claim.  They are in the insurance business to make money, not pay money.  Insurance companies spend thousands of dollars every year teaching their claims adjusters how to save the company money.  You need a lawyer who knows how to fight against that system so you are paid fairly.

 

Vehicle Collision

     Matlock Law Office represents individuals in every type of vehicle accident, specifically motor vehicle collisions in which another party is at fault. Examples of vehicle accidents include cars, trucks, motorcycles, scooters, bikes, and all others.

 

     No accident is too great or too small.  Matlock Law Office handles a variety of vehicle accident cases, from fender-benders to high-speed semi-tractor collisions, utilizing trained investigators and accident reconstruction experts to provide the evidence and basis needed to prove each case.

 

     Whether a client is dealing with whiplash, a physical injury, brain injury, an uninsured motorist, a high-speed incident, or a hit-and-run, Matlock Law Office works to establishing negligence, handles insurance claims, and seeks full compensation for their clients.

 

     Contact Matlock Law Office if you have been involved in a vehicle accident and are dealing with medical bills, lost wages, or an insurance claim.

 

Wrongful Death

     Many people turn to Matlock Law Office for representation when a loved one has died through wrongdoing, irresponsibility, or neglect of others. It is important for immediate family members to seek legal assistance when filing a wrongful death claim in order to establish negligence and rightful compensation.

Wrongful death claims may include medical bills, lost income, funeral expenses, and more.

Slips and Falls

     Matlock Law Office represents people who have fallen or been injured on the property of another party.  Matlock Law Office is experienced and works hard to provide clients full compensation and justice.

 

     To prove who is at fault, Matlock Law Office works with engineers and accident reconstruction experts to establish negligence of the property owner, state, county, or city.  In order to conduct a proper investigation, experts and documentation are needed to provide clear evidence and witness testimony, which is essential to win jury trials.

ESTATE PLANNING

     Everyone needs the peace of mind that comes with completing your Estate Planning documents.  These documents not only guarantee how and to who your estate is distributed, but also are critical to establish who will make important financial and medical decisions for you in the event you are no longer capable.
 
     At Matlock Law Office, P.C., we offer several different Estate Planning Packages that include all critical documents everyone should have.  We offer a SIMPLE WILL PACKAGE that includes: a Will, a Property POA, a Healthcare POA with medical directives, and a Hipaa.  We also offer a LIVING TRUST PACKAGE that includes: a Living Trust (with all required documents), a Pour-Over-Will, a Property POA, a Healthcare POA with medical directives, and a Hipaa.  All documents are tailored and drafted based on your needs.

     We make it easy.  Just call to set an appointment.  At this appointment we will go over the information contained in this workbook (fill out if you wish) and discuss your questions and wishes to determine the documents you need.  We will then draft the documents and send them to you for review. We will then work with you until you are completely satisfied with the documents.  At that time we will meet one last time to execute a final version of the documents.

     

     Matlock Law Office, P.C. works on a flat rate schedule for these documents, so there are no surprises or unknowns.  You pay this flat rate at the last meeting after you are satisfied with the completed documents.
