Why hire a personal injury attorney? There are a lot of complexities in the law that many people are unfamiliar with when it comes to injury claims. If you don't have an experienced advocate fighting for you, it's possible you'll give up rights you didn't know you had. For example, did you know that if your health insurance carrier pays for treatment related to your injuries they are entitled to be reimbursed out of your settlement? Unfortunately, insurance companies don't freely give out this information. They would rather try to reach an agreement with you as soon as possible to relieve themselves of these future liabilities, and this is just one example of many.
Often times people will initiate a claim with the insurance company in hopes of resolving their claim only to find that it becomes overwhelming. It is in the best interest of insurance companies to pay you as little as possible, after all it is a business and that's how they make and keep their money. All too many times we hear stories of clients who settled with an insurance company believing that their medical bills would be paid, only to find out after they have signed a release that they still have outstanding payments due. There is often little that can be done to negate the damage that has been done after an agreement with the insurance company has been reached.
You deserve real representation with real results. It can be confusing and frustrating to know what to do next after an accident. Should you call your insurance? Seek medical attention?

We'll handle everything from communicating with the insurance companies to making sure that your medical bills get paid, so you can focus on getting well.
We don't get paid unless you do. Often, accident victims are afraid attorney's fees will eat into their settlement, leaving them with less than what they deserve. If we don't win, you don't pay.
