Do you really need to hire an attorney for your accident claim?
Based on our background in defending insurance companies against claims such as yours, we strongly recommend that you hire legal representation for your personal injury claim. Individuals who attempt to settle claims on their own are routinely denied the full compensation they deserve. Realize that insurance is a multi-billion dollar industry, and you are up against a company that has teams of adjusters, claims representatives and attorneys to protect the bottom line. Level the playing field in your case by hiring us to fight for you. With our help, you may be able to recover financial compensation for your:
Bills for ambulance transportation, emergency medical treatment, hospitalization and surgery
Expenses for future medical treatment, rehabilitative care, medications and equipment
Lost wages during time missed at work
Reduced future earning power due to partial or total disability
Pain and suffering
People who hire legal representation for their accident claims routinely walk away from the situation with far more compensation than they otherwise would have. Furthermore, we may be able to help you to recover punitive damages based on evidence that the defendant caused your accident while intoxicated or through willful misconduct or gross negligence. Remember, you never pay us unless we win for you.
