If you or a family member has been injured or has died through the fault of others, you know how far-reaching the effects can be. Spouses and children may be shattered by the experience, and often families are fragmented at a time when closeness and family unity are most important. For these families, there are financial hardships, difficulties with insurance companies, and often expensive future medical needs to consider.
In the midst of such trauma, it can be difficult to know which way to turn. At such a time, you may feel you’ve had “the fight knocked out of you” and become vulnerable to unfair settlements, forgetting your own best interests in an attempt to simplify your current situation. It may seem like a daunting task to stand up for your rights and make the appropriate provisions to meet future medical expenses and to support yourself and others who rely on you.
We understand and are ready to offer you the help you need to insure that your rights are protected. We are devoted to representing only victims of wrongful acts, and dedicated to litigating and trying cases against many of this country’s largest companies and their insurers. We have litigated personal injury cases in state and federal courts against manufacturers, retailers, banks, contractors, insurance companies, nursing homes, entertainment and amusement establishments, and governmental and law enforcement agencies.
We follow a “Client First” principle, and strive for top quality work to serve the interests of our clients. The duration of our cases average a year or more, during which we usually become friends with our clients. Clients have direct contact with those persons who are actually doing the work on their case. We keep our clients informed and take time to explain consequences. We encourage calls about questions and concerns. If we don’t have the answer right away, we’ll find it.
Our firm’s approach is results-oriented, disciplined and aggressive while demonstrating the utmost respect for court procedures and trial ethics. Our attorneys are versatile and innovative, with a broad range of trial experience.
