Don’t hesitate to contact us and for a free case consultation and case evaluation with an auto accident lawyer from our firm. There’s no obligation at all.
We’ve Earned Respect
We’re litigators and advocates for motorists, motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians who have been injured as a result of the carelessness and negligence of somebody else. We’re knowledgeable, experienced and successful courtroom lawyers who are respected by opposing insurance defense firms, judges and jurors.
Investigating Your Case
We’ll collect all relevant evidence in connection with your case. That includes police reports, witness statements, photos at the crash location and reviewing any security or traffic camera tapes that might be available. If you or any witnesses saw the driver who hit you using a cellular device, we can even subpoena the appropriate account information necessary to show that he or she was driving while distracted.
Obtaining Necessary Medical Evidence
In cases involving serious and permanent injuries, it’s not unusual for us to consult with medical experts for purposes of obtaining written reports that detail the nature and extent of the injuries suffered by our clients. These doctors might even testify as to their reports and the body mechanics of how your injuries occurred. Future care and treatment is sometimes required, and they’ll explain to a judge and jury why it will be required along with its cost.
Discussions With Insurers And Their Attorneys
We have extensive experience in communicating with opposing insurance companies and their attorneys. We have a legal duty to communicate any settlement offers to our clients, but we don’t recommend that you accept a low offer. If a settlement is in order, we want to maximize it for you, so that you’re fully and fairly compensated for your injuries.
Preparation of Your Case
As opposed to many law firms, from the day that you retain us, we prepare your case as if it is going to trial. We won’t be asking for a continuance to allow us to further prepare your case. Low settlement offers and delays in the litigation process are unfair to you, so we’re prepared to put our evidence on when the judge wants to hear it.
Any jury verdict in your favor depends on what we put into evidence. What we put into evidence depends on the nature and extent of your injuries. Common damages consist of:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future lost earnings
- Any permanent disfigurement
- Any permanent disability
- Pain and suffering
- Funeral and burial costs in the event of a wrongful death
Seek Immediate Medical And Legal Help
When you call 911, tell the dispatcher that you want paramedics to come to the scene too. They’ll treat you and transport you to the nearest emergency room. Follow all instructions from your doctors, and call our offices as soon as you can. Evidence can be destroyed, and witnesses can disappear into thin air. You’ll want us to document your case as soon as possible.
You don’t need a penny to hire us. If we’re retained to represent you, no legal fees are due until such time as we obtain compensation for you. That’s because we’ll represent you on a contingency fee basis.

We’re knowledgeable, experienced, professional and successful. When you’re the victim of the negligence of somebody else, you deserve full and fair compensation.
