Our personal injury practice is limited to representing only people who are injured in an accident. We do not represent those causing an accident or their insurance company. We are devoted to aggressively negotiating for you to get you the compensation you deserve. If you are suffering from an injury, an insurance company may be contacting you. You should not agree to a settlement in your personal injury case, motor vehicle accident, workers compensation, wrongful death, or other liability case without meeting with us. The insurance company does not have your best interest in mind and they will not tell you everything you need to know. Signing a settlement will bar you from future action should your condition become worse or you develop new symptoms from your injury.
