Your injury may affect you for a long period of time. We take this into account in representing your needs. The legal system is meant to help people recover.
The right attorney can help you get the settlement you deserve. We handle all communications with the opposing side and coordinate your insurance benefits, helping take the pressure off you.
We may ask you to see medical or vocational experts who can evaluate the effects of your injury on your future health, abilities and earning power. Your cooperation in following our advice is important.
Be truthful…and be careful
It is crucial for you to be completely honest with us. Your lawyer must know everything, just as it happened. You should not release any information to an insurance company or other investigator without our prior approval. Do not sign anything without our approval! Remember, the insurance company’s job is to minimize your settlement.
Avoid talking about your claim to anyone outside of your immediate family, as insurance investigators will often speak with friends, neighbors, and fellow employees about your injuries. Insurance investigators may also try to secretly videotape you.
