How do I know if the offer from the insurance company is reasonable?
Our personal injury attorneys are experienced in litigating these types of cases and maximizing the amount of compensation you are entitled to from the insurance company after an accident.
What happens if I am at fault?
Most accidents happen because someone was careless. The basic rule is: If one person involved in an accident was less careful than another, the less careful one must pay for at least a portion of the damages suffered by the more careful one.
Does hiring an attorney mean my case will go to trial?
Our reputation as skilled trial attorneys allows us to settle the vast majority of the cases without the need for a trial. With proper preparation, it is clear to the employer or insurance company how much they will have to pay. On the other hand, it is important for the insurance companies to realize that if they are not reasonable our office will trial any of our cases. If you are concerned about going to the trial, you should realize that the odds of that occurring are slight but you have the assurance from us that we will do so if it is in your best interest.
