rvices our lawyers provide for our clients in handling their personal injury cases include:

  • Helping you get the medical care you need;
  • Assisting you in filing your insurance claim;
  • Handling all communication with your insurance company and the insurance company of the other party;
  • Conducting negotiations to seek a fair settlement for your claim;
  • Investigating the circumstances of your accident and injury to determine who should be held accountable and what your claim should be worth;
  • Protecting your rights and interests throughout the process involved in filing your personal injury claim or lawsuit; and
  • Taking your case to civil court if a fair settlement cannot be reached through negotiations or other out-of-court procedures.
