Recovering financial compensation after a car accident is complicated. One reason is that negligent drivers deny doing anything wrong. They may be afraid of getting into trouble, or just refuse to accept responsibility. This puts you in the position of having to prove negligence in order to recover compensation.
Our attorneys fight for your rights
Insurance companies are supposed to help after you've been hurt in an accident, but they aren't on your side. They only care about making money, and paying compensation hurts their profits, so they will try to pay you as little as possible. They may question the extent of your injuries or argue they were pre-existing. They may even blame you for causing the accident.
Paying you less than the compensation you deserve is not acceptable. That's why our firm investigates your accident. Our legal team gathers evidence. We carefully review accident reports and medical records. We interview the witnesses. If necessary, we consult accident reconstruction experts who can help us understand what happened.
Insurance companies know our firm and they know we are serious about getting results for our clients. So when we show them a case built on facts, they usually realize it's not a good idea for them to go to court. They may agree to negotiate a settlement, but we are not going to accept a lowball offer that helps them save money.
We know what people go through after a car accident. You can have medical expenses for surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy, medication and doctor's appointments. You lost wages when you couldn't go back to work. There is the pain and suffering and emotional distress that being in a car accident can cause.
Call the law firm that knows how to get results in your case
Our attorneys are only interested in negotiating a settlement that covers all of the damages you suffered. If the insurance company won't negotiate a settlement that meets your needs, we will be prepared to fight for you in court.
