About this office:

Our firm handles legal matters in the following practice areas: General Practice in all courts, Automobile Accidents, Medical Malpractice, Wrongful Death, Products Liability, Personal Injury, Worker's Compensation, Commercial Litigation, Dog Bites, Slip and Fall, Civil Litigation. I provide a free initial consultation. In most cases there is no fee unless there is a recovery. One area of practice in which we have substantial experience is the handling of personal injury claims resulting from motor vehicle collisions. I have experience in handling personal injuries caused by motor vehicle collisions starting with working for an insurance company as a claims adjuster prior to law school. I have spent 35 years as a lawyer representing people with personal injury claims resulting from motor vehicle collisions. Working as a lawyer and an insurance adjuster has helped me understand the process of working with an insurance company to settle claims without filing suit. Personal injury claims can take 3-5 years in the court system before coming to trial so settling the personal injury claim prior to trial may be beneficial. There are cases that cannot be settled and in those cases we proceed to trial. It is important as a lawyer representing clients with personal injuries received in motor vehicle collisions to enter the case as early as possible. The parties involved in motor vehicle collisions report the claim to the insurance company immediately so the insurance company has a head start in investigating the case. It is important to get photographs of the vehicles involved. It is also important to talk to any witnesses at the earliest possible date. It is important to get photographs of the scene of the accident and photographs of the injured parties. Unfortunately in some cases attorneys are not hired in time to preserve the evidence that can be important to a successful outcome in a personal injury case. It is important to remember that all personal injury claims are handled by our office on a contingent fee agreement. This means there are no attorney's fees unless there is a recovery from the negligent party. We are happy to provide a free consultation for anybody with a personal injury claim resulting from any of the practice areas listed above.
