"Your case our priority"
If you are injured in an automobile accident, you should seek immediate medical attention. If the other driver is at fault and you wish to make a claim for personal injuries, you should contact an attorney who specializes in personal injury as soon as possible.
You are entitled to recover your reasonable and necessary medical expenses caused by the at fault driver. However, most insurance companies do not pay medical expenses as you treat. Medical expenses will be included in the final one time settlement.
Cases are generally not settled until you reach maximum medical improvement and are released by your doctor. Once released by your doctor, we promptly complete and forward a settlement demand to the insurance company.
Our fees are contingent - meaning, we get paid only after your case is settled or after a verdict. Our fees are 33 1/3% and go to 40% if we are forced to file a lawsuit.
Your case is our priority.
