Personal Injury

A Wealth of Experience

Our attorneys have more than 70 years of collective experience helping clients receive fair compensation for injuries caused by the negligent and wrongful actions of others. Our starting point is always you, the client. When you come to our office, you will meet personally with an attorney who will help you evaluate your claim and determine the best course of action for ensuring that you are fully and fairly compensated for the injuries you have suffered. Throughout the handling of your claim, you, the client, will make the decisions about whether to settle and for how much you will settle – with the expert guidance and recommendations of our experienced injury attorneys. We do the work; you make the decisions.

We are different from most other law firms, particularly high-advertising legal mills, in our representation of injured persons. That is, we can and will try cases before juries when insurance companies refuse to pay full value for an injury claim. We are not talking about quick-and-dirty arbitrations in front of professional arbitrators who depend upon repeat business from insurance companies. No, we are talking about jury trials in which 6 or 8 or 12 persons from the community decide the appropriate amount of monetary compensation for our clients. This is the fundamental system of justice enshrined in our federal and state constitutions. We proudly wear the title of “trial lawyers” because we know from experience that the thing an insurance company respects most is a lawyer who will take a case to trial before a jury of the injured person’s peers. Our years in the courtroom have taught us that insurance companies pay full value for injury claims only when they know they will be forced to explain their case to a jury if they do not settle at full value. As a group, our trial lawyers have tried more than 75 jury trials in state and federal courts and we have handled dozens of appeals at all levels of state and federal appellate tribunals. Insurance companies take us seriously. And as a result, we get the best settlements possible for our clients – often policy-limits settlements in which insurance companies pay the maximum amount provided under the insurance policy.

An important service we provide our injury clients is managing paperwork and working with treatment providers and insurance companies to make sure our clients receive the treatment they need to recover and nothing falls through the cracks in the process. The paperwork burden and financial pressures following an injury can be as daunting as recovering from the injury itself. Our professional staff steps in to take over the routine, but time-consuming task of coordinating insurance companies and treatment providers, which frees up our clients to concentrate on recovering from their injuries and rehabilitating damaged body parts. And if there is no health insurance to cover necessary treatment, we can direct you to treatment providers who will do their work now and wait to be paid when you receive your payment from the at-fault person’s insurance company.
