Few disasters can literally crash in upon your life like an automobile accident.  You are cruising along in your car just like  any other day and then, like a lightening strike, someone smashes into you and turns your entire life upside-down in an instant.  Injuries, damages to your car, doctors, hospitals, insurance agents, lost work and income, pain and frustration are just some of the new and frightening ordeals you suddenly face.  Most victims have no experience in controlling such daunting problems and are forced to make life changing decisions under the worst of conditions.  Don't try to do it alone.  You need the advice, guidance, and advocacy skills of an experienced attorney to stand up for your rights and get you the compensation you deserve.  You owe it to yourself and your family. 

Here are just a few of the challenges we can handle for you:

  • Statutes of limitations
     

  • Insurance issues
                      ►  Medical pay
                      ►  Subrogation
                      ►  UM/UIM (Uninsured/Under-insured motorist insurance)
                      ►  Dealing with adjusters
                      ►  Medical records & Dr. reports
                      ►  Preparing your damages claims
                      ►  Achieving a cash settlement for 
                                        ●  Pain & Suffering
                                        ●  Medical bills
                                        ●  Lost Wages
                                        ●  Out-of-pocket expenses
                                        ●  Other damages
     

  •  Proving that the other party is at fault (establishing liability)
                          ►  Filing suit
                          ►  Going to court
                          ►  Arguing your case before a jury to 
                                maximize your recovery
     

Far too many injured victims try to handle their case themselves -- and the results can be disastrous. 
Here are a few of the traps awaiting the victim who tries to settle his or her case without a lawyer:
 

  • Missing statutes of limitations and forever forfeiting rights

  • Leaving insurance coverage untapped

  • Not knowing the value of their claims

  • Making admissions or statements and signing documents 
    which significantly hurt their case and limit rights to compensation.
     

Not retaining legal counsel early can be the biggest mistake of your life.

Many injured victims feel that they cannot afford a lawyer when in reality legal counsel is readily affordable through contingent fees.  We take all auto accident cases (including wrongful death, personal injury, etc.) on a contingency fee basis.  This means that you do not pay any attorney fee unless we recover damages for you sufficient to pay the fee and provide you with compensation.  The insurance companies always have lawyers, and you should too!

Let us help you through the intimidating maze of issues and not only help get your life back but also lessen the frustration along the way.
