Getting Answers

If you have suffered harm due to the fault of another, you probably have a lot of questions:

  • I have been out of work for months. Who’s going to pay for my lost wages?
  • I’ve got thousands of dollars in medical costs. How am I going to pay for that?
  • The mortgage payment is past due. How can we make that payment?
  • I have kids and I can barely get out of bed. How am I going to take care of them?
  • The insurance company has denied my claim. What am I going to do?
  • The insurance company has offered me a settlement, but I think it’s too low. What should I do?

Free Initial Consultation

If you, a loved one, or friend has suffered a life-changing personal injury or the loss of a loved one, we would recommend the following:

  • First, it is extremely important to preserve any evidence, so that it can be used later to prove your case in court. Pictures, names and contact information for witnesses, physical evidence. Time is of the essence, so you have to move fast.
  • Second, find out about your legal rights. To do that, you need an attorney experienced in personal injury and insurance matters to help you.

We understand that many of you have never spoken with an attorney and are not familiar with this process. When you contact us for a free initial consultation, you will receive prompt attention and advice. We will go over your situation in detail and explain the options available to you.

If we then work together on your case, we will:

  • Complete the investigation needed to evaluate your case
  • Obtain your medical or other records
  • Negotiate a settlement that takes care of your needs
  • Litigate your case in court if necessary
