DiMartino is dedicated to protecting your legal rights. He uses his experience and knowledge of medicine, healthcare, and the law to help accident victims get the compensation that they deserve.
Understanding Your Indiana Legal Rights Following an Accident
Many accident victims and their families do not truly understand their legal rights. Often they receive advice from well meaning friends or family members and many times this advice is just plain wrong. Some folks have a tendency to get intimidated or confused when dealing with insurance adjusters who are focused on saving the insurance company money by under settling or denying a valid personal injury claim. If you hire a personal injury lawyer, you will not have to speak to or deal with the insurance adjusters. We will help you understand your legal rights, and assist you through the maze of getting your vehicle fixed, medical bills paid, dealing with employment issues and counseling you on the most effective way to resolve your claim.

Our Understanding of Your Injuries and Medical Treatment is the Key!
The main part of pursuing a successful personal injury claim is understanding the client's injuries, medical treatment and being able to explain the nature and extent of the injuries an insurance adjuster or jury. Guy S. DiMartino is different than most personal injury lawyers because he had a deep understanding of the medicine involved in our clients injuries. Our knowledge of human anatomy, physiology, as well as the law, allows us to bridge the gap between law and medicine that many attorneys simply cannot do. It is one thing to have knowledge of a medical condition, it is another thing to actually have diagnosed and/or treated the injury.
Why is this in depth understanding of medicine and injuries so important?
Because a complete understanding of a client's medical condition helps us maximize the client's financial compensation. We will often consult with medical experts all over the country in order find the most appropriate physician to analyze our client's case. These physicians may review medical records, perform specialized examination, assess the client's post accident status and testify on behalf of the client.
