If you have been injured, you know how total the effect can be on your life, and how uncertain and difficult the recovery process often is.  If another party is responsible for your accident, you have the right to seek compensation from that party and their insurer.  We have been helping injured parties for 15 years, and have earned a reputation for tenacity, diligence and success in our practice.  We handle every case with personal attention and compassion, and we will not collect a dime unless your claim is successful.

I've been injured.  What should I do?

  1. DOCUMENT, DOCUMENT, DOCUMENT!  You are your own best advocate at the outset of your case.  Protect yourself and your claim by doing the following:
    • Call the police and have an accident report prepared
    • Get the names and contact information of any witnesses
    • Photograph the scene, the damage to vehicles or the surrounding conditions, and your own injuries
    • Keep a log of your injuries, your recovery, and the effect on your day-to-day life
  2. DON'T TALK TO THE RESPONSIBLE PARTY'S INSURANCE COMPANY.  You will likely be contacted by a friendly insurance adjuster looking to speak to you about the accident.  To them you are a liability in their accounting ledger.  Their job is not to check on you out of compassion, it is to get you talking and hopefully limit the value of any claim you might make for injuries you suffered and save the insurance company money.
  3. SEEK PROMPT MEDICAL TREATMENT.  If you are injured, do not delay seeking treatment.  Prompt and thorough treatment is obviously important to ensure the best recovery from your injuries, but doing so is also the most beneficial thing you can do for your claim.  Delays or gaps in treatment, and especially not following treatment advice, are the biggest mistakes you can make for yourself and for your claim.
  4. SPEAK TO AN ATTORNEY.  The law allows only a limited time to file a claim.  Generally, the earlier you hire an attorney, the better the outcome your case will have.

choose the right personal injury lawyer

If you are looking for a well-known 'injury mill', we are not the firm for you.  Any lawyer can submit an accident report and medical records to get you an offer.  Insurance companies love those lawyers -after all, they want to pay as little as possible on a claim.

We are different.  We strive to add value to every case by working quickly to preserve your rights, to collect the evidence, and to build the case to put you in position for the best result possible.  We have learned that working diligently to build a case for suit is the best defense against it ever reaching that stage.  We answer all calls, or return them promptly, and we keep our clients informed every step of the way.
