Depending on the circumstances of your case, we can help recover compensation for damages, such as:

  • Pain and suffering

Dealing With Insurance Companies

When you’re injured and trying to heal, the arduous process of filing insurance claims and negotiating with an insurer can be overwhelming. Our caring car accident lawyers understand how stressful and confusing the insurance claims process can be. An insurer may initially offer much less than what a claim is worth or even deny a valid claim altogether. Our lawyers understand how to properly value your claim and are experienced in navigating the complex insurance claims process.

Our team thoroughly investigates the facts of your case, communicates with your health care providers, and takes care of all negotiations with insurance adjusters and insurance company attorneys. If you’ve been hurt by an uninsured or underinsured driver, we can also help you recover compensation from your own auto insurance company.

How To Protect Your Rights After An Auto Accident

If you’ve been involved in an auto accident, it’s important to take steps to protect your legal rights. Following an accident, call 911 if necessary. If possible, jot down everything you remember about what happened and take photos of the scene, damage to the vehicles, and your injuries. Gather insurance and contact information from all involved motorists and collect contact info from any witnesses as well. Seek medical care as needed. If required, contact the DMV to complete and accident report. Contacting an experienced attorney is critical to ensure your rights are protected. Don’t give a statement or sign anything from an insurance company without speaking to your lawyer first.
