Our Legal Practices
If you've been injured in an accident that wasn't your fault, a personal injury attorney can help you receive a fair settlement from the insurance company. Although it's possible to receive some compensation without legal representation, if you don't have a personal injury attorney there's an increased chance that the insurance company will try to take advantage of you and give you less than you deserve.
Personal injury attorneys have experience in tort law, which involves civil litigation to recover financial damages in a settlement.
You may consider representation if: You've suffered a long-term or permanently disabling injury.
You've suffered a severe short-term injury that resulted in significant medical costs.
You suffered an injury or illness as a result of negligence by a doctor, nurse, hospital, or other health care provider. In this case you would hire a medical malpractice attorney.
You've experienced psychological trauma or illness as a result of another's negligence.
You're being sued by someone claiming negligence on your part.
Most personal injury cases a handled on contingency. This means that instead of charging a fee directly, the attorney takes a portion of the damages received from a successful case.
