My main area of practice is personal injury. I represent people seriously injured in accidents caused by another person or business, particularly car accidents. These injuries can be catastrophic and have a huge impact on one’s life – including family, work and physical well-being. Insurance companies will minimize your injury because they look at you as a number affecting their bottom line, not as a human.
Any lawyer can write a letter, get a quick settlement and move on to the next case. Unfortunately, quick settlements rarely give you fair compensation, especially for catastrophic injuries. The reason is simple enough: the insurance company controls the outcome. To get fair compensation you must fight, and that means taking your case to trial.
Talk to a lawyer before you settle an injury claim. If the insurance company isn’t offering you fair compensation, hire a lawyer that is prepared to go to trial. I pride myself on being trial lawyer.
