Suffering injuries and other losses at another party’s hands can be catastrophic for your emotional, physical, and financial well-being. You may be entitled to monetary awards from the at-fault party to cover your injury-related losses.
A Vermont personal injury attorney from our office wants to help you fight for justice after getting hurt or losing a loved one. The team at Ben Crump Law, PLLC will not rest until we recover what you need.
We’re Ready to Pursue Compensation for Each of Your Losses
Ben Crump Law, PLLC can pursue the compensation you need to recover from an accident. When evaluating your recoverable losses, we’ll ask ourselves:
- Were you unable to work for any length of time following the accident? Then you can collect lost wages.
- Did you need to see a doctor, take medication, or undergo medical tests and procedures? Then you can collect medical expenses.
- Do you expect your injuries to have a permanent impact on your career, including your ability to work or apply for promotions? Then you can collect an award for lost earning capacity.
- Did you suffer physically and emotionally due to the injuries and trauma of the accident? Then you can collect pain and suffering.
- Are you no longer able to take care of yourself or engage in the same range of activities you once did? Then you can collect an award for reduced quality of life.
- Have your injuries cost you the use (or partial use) of a limb, an organ, or any other part of your body? Then you can collect disability. This recoverable expense is separate from the program offered by the Social Security Administration (SSA).
We will evaluate all aspects of your situation to determine what constitutes a fair settlement. You may pursue other awards than those listed here.

You can trust our team to:
Investigate Your Case
To support various aspects of your case, we will collect:
- Police reports
- Medical records
- Expert statements
- Eyewitness testimony
- Photos and videos
This evidence can tell us, among other things, who to pursue compensation from. Finding the liable party is especially important. Common liable parties include:
- Reckless drivers: Per the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there are plenty of risky driving behaviors that could increase the risk of a crash. Causes include speeding, reckless driving, and road rage.
- Negligent property owners: Property owners must keep their premises in safe condition for guests. This involves sealing off dangerous areas, putting up warning signs, and addressing hazards as they appear.
- Careless medical professionals: You depend on your care providers to keep you and your loved ones safe and healthy. When a healthcare provider fails to render appropriate care, they can be liable for your losses.
Fight for an Award
Whether we negotiate a pretrial settlement or take your case to court depends on the specifics of your case. We are not intimidated by either option. Your lawyer can:
- Meet with the liable party’s insurance representatives to negotiate a settlement
- Prepare your case for court by scheduling court dates, selecting jury members (if necessary), and more
- Represent you at trial by questioning witnesses, making arguments, and more
- Prepare, fill out, and submit all paperwork throughout your case
Work Closely with You
This is still your case, even if you decide to give legal responsibility to our firm. We stay in close contact with our clients throughout the duration of their cases. This way, they:
- Always know what is happening with their claims or lawsuits
- Have the knowledge and support to make important decisions
- Can turn to us with questions or concerns whenever they need to do so
