It can be challenging to stay calm and collected if you have been hurt and someone else was responsible for your injuries. However, by following these steps, you can set yourself up for a better legal case down the line.
If your injury was caused by another’s negligence, you may be able to recover current and future medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other costs associated with your accident.
Our attorneys begin by thoroughly investigating your accident and consulting with your doctors regarding your injuries and the potential lasting effects to establish the extent of the damages. As your healing progresses, we present your claim to the insurance company and discuss a suitable settlement to cover the full cost of the damages. Our goal is to obtain maximum compensation for your injuries.
If you are not happy with the insurance company’s offer, or if they are unwilling to settle, we will take your case before a judge and jury. We will counsel you as to all of your options and which ones we think will serve you best.
