Insurance companies nearly always seek to pay as little as possible to resolve injury claims. The bottom line is that insurance is big business, and the priority for most insurance companies is to maximize their profits. They accomplish this by collecting as many premiums as possible from their insureds, and at the same time paying the lowest amount possible to resolve claims. With this in mind, insurance companies frequently try to take advantage of injury claimants that do not have legal representation. And, unfortunately, they usually succeed. This is because they have superior resources, teams of attorneys and investigators, and a better understanding of the legal system than most claimants.

The only way to level the playing field is to retain an experienced law firm with a proven track record. We are that firm. Since our inception, we have obtained compensation for our clients in 100% of the cases that we have handled from start to finish. We are recognized as an industry leader by our peers and respected by our past clients. Insurance companies know that we have the resources and legal know-how to keep them honest and that we will take them to trial if they are not.

Please do not let big insurance take advantage of you. Give us a call so that we may tell you more about how we can help.

Yes. Typically we conduct a free initial telephone consultation and then, where appropriate, we then follow up with an additional free in-person consultation.
Yes. Whether you hire us or not, our consultations are always 100% confidential.
You will never pay us out of your own pocket. We work on a “contingency fee” basis. This means that we do not get paid unless we obtain a settlement, jury verdict or some other form of compensation for you. In the event that we do, we take a percentage of that compensation as our payment. That percentage varies from case to case, but typically it ranges from 25% to 40%. We consider this the most honest way to do business because we do not get paid unless we succeed on your behalf.
Yes. If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, you should hire a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after your accident. There are several reasons for this. First, your attorney will take over communication with the other party and his/her insurance carrier so that you can focus on getting better. Your attorney will also work to secure vital evidence that may otherwise be destroyed or disappear if you delay in hiring one. In addition, an experienced personal injury attorney will provide valuable advice to help you navigate your way through the often-overwhelming maze of doctors and other healthcare providers on your way to recovery. Finally, every case has a time limit. This is commonly known as a statute of limitations or “limitations period.” If you do not file suit within the applicable limitations period, you will likely be legally precluded from pursuing a claim in court thereafter. Hiring an attorney as soon as possible, and within the limitations period, will ensure that your lawsuit is timely filed and preserve your right to pursue your claim in court if necessary.
No! In most instances the other party’s insurance company will contact you within days after your accident and it is common for them to request that you provide a recorded statement. This often proves problematic for the injured party because they are in a great deal of pain, may be disoriented or medicated, and generally are not prepared to accurately provide information regarding the accident and their injuries. For this reason, it is advised that you refrain from speaking with the other party’s insurance company until you have hired your own attorney. From that point, your attorney will handle communication with the insurance company so that you can focus on recovering. Remember, you are not obligated to provide a statement to the other party’s insurance company and in fact you are not even required to speak with them at all.
At the outset of a personal injury claim, it is virtually impossible to estimate the value of the case with any meaningful accuracy. This is because there is usually not enough information available in the beginning. The value of most personal injury claims is typically determined based on a variety of factors, including, but not limited to, the strength of the evidence establishing the other party’s fault, the nature and extent of the claimant’s injuries, the amount of the claimant’s past and future medical expenses and the amount of the claimant’s past and future wage loss. As your claim proceeds and this information is gathered, your attorney should be better equipped to estimate a value range for your case. However, you should be aware that it is never possible to put an exact value on a personal injury case because it is impossible to predict with 100% certainty exactly how a jury may decide your case.
