Whether you’re injured in a car accident, truck accident, or slip and fall, your case is important.
We can help you through the chaos and confusion that typically follows an accident and make sure that you get the compensation you deserve!
Being in an accident is stressful to all involved. After exchanging personal contact and insurance information with the other party, what should you do next? Perhaps the accident was serious enough to warrant calling the police.
First, you need to make sure that both you and your passengers access your injuries. Please remember that many soft tissue injuries may not be apparent until a day or two or even a week later. If you are in doubt, please either go to the emergency room or see your doctor. With an automobile accident, it is always better to be safe than sorry.
Next, you will need to assess the damage to your vehicle and any items you had in the vehicle. When in doubt, take it to the dealership or collision repair shop for a thorough inspection. Many problems are not immediately apparent.
You should go ahead and contact your insurance company. It doesn’t matter who was at fault. Contacting your insurance company with your version of the incident will keep the other driver from making baseless claims against your insurance.
If an accident report was filed by the police, you need to obtain a copy of this report for your insurance company and your attorney, should you decide you need one. The next step is to go ahead and report it to the other driver’s insurance company. The other driver’s insurance company will not authorize a rental vehicle (should you need one) until they hear from their driver. Contacting them immediately will speed things up.
Depending on the circumstances, you might be tempted to handle this yourself. However, there are too many times when you will regret not hiring or at least consulting with a personal injury (PI) attorney.
Our office offers a free consultation. This meeting usually last 30 to 45 minutes and allows you to ask many questions. We will examine your case and give you an honest opinion.
In many cases, once the other driver’s insurance company realizes that an attorney is involved, they are more willing to settle out-of-court and make you a fair offer for the damage to your vehicle and to adequately compensate you for your injuries, lost wages, loss of value to your vehicle, and your pain and suffering. The more serious the injuries to you or your passengers, the more imperative it is to at least consult with an attorney.
With our firm assisting you with your claim, the other driver’s insurance company will take your claim more seriously and they will respond promptly to our requests for payments. We will ensure that you do not finalize the claim until you are sure that we have addressed any problems due to the accident. We will handle your case on a contingency basis. This means that you will not owe us any legal fees until your case is closed. If we lose your case, you pay us nothing in legal fees.

We may be the right firm for you if you want an attorney who will keep you informed and let you know the good and the bad scenarios in your case. We may be the right firm if you want an attorney to consult you before making any decision that may affect our case strategy.
However, we are not the right firm to handle your divorce case if you want an attorney who will make any demand you dream up without relating it back to your overall strategy or case. That is a recipe for bad results and unhappy surprises and our firm doesn’t want to set you up for either.
Even if you are just planning to get an uncontested divorce on your own, it is important, at the very least, to have a caring and competent attorney review the paperwork prior to filing it.

We use a holistic approach, focused on your goals to help you navigate away from the hidden landmines that many contracts don’t address.
What good is your contract if it doesn’t accomplish your goals?
Contracts can be a lot like landmines or ticking time bombs.
Like a landmine or ticking time bomb, the horrors of a bad contract often don’t reveal themselves until it is too late to do anything about them. You can go years before you realize that your boilerplate contract doesn’t offer the protection you needed. To a non-lawyer, the language in even a simple contract may mislead you into believing that your best interests are covered.
However, an extra word, a missing word or unclear wording can end up costing you thousands of dollars, as well as a lifetime worth of frustration.
Few things are worse than being stuck in a contract that makes you feel like you are handcuffed to an unfavorable or financially disastrous situation. The best way to avoid being surprised by a contract that is bad for you is to have it reviewed or drafted by an experienced attorney who is willing to be honest and take the time to explain the good as well as the bad within the contract.
