Personal injuries often leave victims suffering from both physical and psychological harm. Unfortunately, as with this pain and suffering comes the financial strains of medical expenses, lost wages, and the occasional property damages.

Having won over $100 million in successful verdicts and settlements for our clients, each member of our law firm has the experience and knowledge you can trust.

No. Often time's claims will be settled without filing a lawsuit. By speaking with a lawyer you can determine your legal rights and discover if a lawsuit is needed.
Depending on what caused the personal injuries, the victim may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, property damages, lost wages, lost opportunities, and more.
When determining if you have a personal injury claim, it is highly advised to seek an experienced lawyer to help determine your legal options. In any case, the victim will need to prove injuries were caused by another person's negligent or careless actions.

There is no exact time on how long it will take to resolve a personal injury claim, while the legal process may take as little as a few months to several years in other cases.

Negligence proves that a person or entity has failed to act in an ordinary and responsible manner under the same circumstances as a person that has acted responsibly or with caution.
No. It is imperative not to sign any documents you do not understand or are comfortable signing. In many cases, insurance companies will attempt to settle claims as quickly as possible as they have their best interests in mind, typically meaning you will receive inadequate compensation for your losses and damages.
