In over 35 years of practiced, I have handled claims totaling millions of dollars. In agreeing to represent an injured party in a claim for personal injury compensation, I treat my clients as partners. I believe that it is the client who has been injured and is entitled to compensation. I join the client in a agreement to represent them to the best of my ability and to the utmost legal standard. I advance the expenses associated with filing these claims and pursue them to successful recovery. Successful recovery depends on the liability/responsibility for the injury as well as a determination of the severity of the injuries. A personal injury claim seeks compensation for medical expenses, lost earnings, pain and suffering, reasonably likely medical treatment in the future as well as likely future loss wages. Often, other family member or loved ones may have their own independent claims if the witness or otherwise observe the incident causing injury. If the injured party is killed in the incident, other loved ones may be entitled to file a Wrongful Death claim.
Personal injury claims can arise from many different situations including automobile accidents, dog bites, other injuries caused by animals, motorcycle accidents, failure to maintain real property, slip and fall, boating/water craft accidents and many other situations where the responsible party is careless or acts intentionally to cause harm.
There are many websites seeking to convince you to retain their lawyers to represent you in these cases. I ask that you consider my office as a first choice. I promise to maximize the recovery for my clients. The initial consultation for personal injury claims are free of charge. Upon being retained, we begin an intensive effort to gather the facts, obtain statements from relative witnesses and gather medical and wage loss information. If time allows, we typically submit a settlement demand to an insurance adjuster for the responsible defendant. If the case should resolve prior to litigation, I offer a substantial discount in my contingency fees. If discussions of pre lawsuit settlement are unsuccessful, my office will file and vigorously prosecute your claim. Again, we treat our relationship with our clients in these matters as a partnership where it is in the best interest of both partners to maximize recovery.
