Coeur d'Alene Serious Injuries Lawyer

If you or someone close to you suffered a serious injury in an accident, you know how urgent the need is for compensation. Medical bills are one thing, but if you cannot work because of a serious injury or permanent disability, you may no longer be able to provide for yourself or your family.

In such circumstances, it is important to hold negligent parties accountable for their roles in causing your injuries. Whether you were struck by a negligent motorist, run off the road by a commercial truck or crushed by heavy equipment while on a construction site – just to cite a few examples – you can recover financial compensation through a personal injury lawsuit.

I am attorney James Bendell, and I have spent more than 35 years defending the rights of my clients in court and in negotiations. For more than 16 years, I represented insurance companies in personal injury litigation, and learned how insurance adjusters and insurance attorneys think about and evaluate cases.

If someone you care about was seriously injured or killed as the result of negligence, I can provide you with thorough and effective representation designed to maximize your compensation.

My goal is always to restore my clients to good health by seeking the compensation they need to pay their medical bills and cover the costs of lost wages, disabilities and inability to earn money in the future.
