13INside Track learns common injuries that occur in the spring with Hankey Law

Hankey Law shares injuries they see during the spring and steps to take if you find yourself with a personal injury.


Ashley Marks and Stacy Crider, partners at Hankey Law Office, discuss personal injury trends during the warmer months.

Spring safety tips to avoid injuries

As a personal injury and disability law firm, Hankey Law tends to notice that there are certain trends at different times of year with injuries. Spring brings everyone outdoors, from dogs, kids, and adults all running, walking, and riding their bikes outdoors. Hankey Law wants to make sure that people are being safe.

  • When you're riding your bike, wear helmet.
  • If you have a dog, make sure they're on a leash.
  • If you go to approach a dog, make sure that you communicate with the owner that it's appropriate or okay.
  • Be aware of your surroundings

What to do if you find yourself injured

The first thing Hankey Law cares about is if you are okay. Hankey Law wants to open the conversation about any treatments you’re having. If there are certain specialists you need to be seeing, then Hankey Law can help to facilitate some of those referrals on the legal side.

One of the first things Hankey Law would do is contact any important witnesses. Memories can fade over time, so it's important to capture those memories and witnesses quickly after the accident. When the insurance company is trying to settle, we will make sure that we're having all those communications on the client's behalf and in their best interest.

For example, in regards to dog bites, unfortunately Hankey Law sees that those can cause a lot of scarring and the insurance company might attempt to settle your claim quickly, but that is going to scar over time that where you'll need additional surgeries and right close to the accident. You might not know that you're gonna need those. It's really important to take the time to flesh out the case and really understand it before you settle.

Why choose Hankey Law when faced with a personal injury

Marks explains the difference in working with Hankey Law Office. "We really pride ourselves here on letting people know about all their different options. So, in addition to a personal injury case, depending on the type of injury and the length of recovery, it might also be important for that person to explore short or long term disability options or even social security disability.”
