Simple Overview of Practice Areas

| Jon Montagna |

The study of law is pretty widely known to be an area of special interest. It’s not something that folks ‘dabble’ in, it’s not something that one person can be an expert at. Attorneys attend law school for years to obtain that job title, and no attorney studies every single aspect of law. If it were easy, everyone would do it, right?

Because we know just how confusing legal terms can be, particularly for the uninitiated, we’ve compiled this list of our practice areas and explained, in simple, everyday language, what each means. We hope you find it helpful, and feel free to give us a call for a free legal consultation. Our Norfolk attorneys are ready and waiting to fight for your case.

Judges Table - Understanding the LawPersonal Injury: Personal Injury claims may include physical, mental and emotional injury, as well as damage to reputation (defamation).

This means that if you were slandered, injured in an automobile accident, during a dental or medical procedure, in an assault, by a defective product, contracted a disease, illness or were otherwise injured in any way, you may have a Personal Injury claim.

If you were injured due to the negligence of another person, don’t wait to call the professionals at Montagna Klein Camden. Time restrictions apply to Personal Injury claims, so call today.

Workers Comp: Workers Compensation cases occur when employees are injured due to circumstances of the job.

Workers’ Compensation is a type of insurance provided to those injured while working. Compensation may take the form of financial reimbursement or medical treatment. Injured workers may accept compensation from the employer, but only if the worker agrees to relinquish the right to sue the company. When this is done, certain forms of compensation are withdrawn.

If you were injured while working you should call the legal professionals of Montagna Klein Camden. Talk to someone with experience, and find out if you have a case. Our legal consultations are free, and time limits may apply to your claim. Don’t wait, call today.

Defense Base Act: The Defense Base Act (DBA) applies to longshoreman and harbor workers who are injured while on the clock, and provides medical treatment and financial compensation to defense contractors or employees outside of the United States.

Most contracts with a U.S. government agency outside of the U.S. will be covered by the DBA, military or not. The failure of any agency or company to provide DBA insurance can result in vulnerability to common law suits, in which the claimant (or his/her heirs) who file the claim do not have the burden of proof.

If you get hurt while working for a government agency, you may have a legitimate claim. Call today for your free legal consultation with Montagna Klein Camden.

Social Security & Disability: Social Security Disability provides support for individuals who cannot work due to a disability, whether physical or otherwise.

It may be temporary or permanent, depending upon the disability, but is generally required to last for a minimum of 12 months to qualify. The severity and longevity of the injury is a key factor in these types of cases.

If you or a loved one believe you qualify for Social Security Disability, please don’t suffer in silence. Call for a free consultation with the experienced lawyers of Montagna Klein Camden today.

Hearing Loss: To qualify for a Hearing Loss claim, a worker must have suffered a permanent loss of hearing in both ears, after being exposed to 90+ decibels over a period of 90 days.

Working in an exceptionally noisy environment can cause hearing loss, which may result in legal compensation. The loss of hearing is not required to be equal, but must have affected both ears to be eligible.
