Do You Handle My Type of Injury Case?
The short answer is: yes, we almost certainly do. Our experienced and aggressive attorneys have been practicing injury law for more than 100 years and we have seen all types of injury cases ranging automobile accidents to carbon-monoxide poisoning cases to birth injury cases and everything in between. Our Practice Area page lists some of the cases we have seen time and time again. But, even if your type of injury case is not listed, do not worry. We have probably handled it and we almost certainly can.
What Should I Do Following My Accident?
While this can vary depending upon the type of injury case, here are some basic steps to take following an injury accident.
Will I Have To Go To Court?
Of course, the mere mention of court leaves most folks feeling queasy. We understand. And, we try to resolve your case without the necessity of filing suit or a trial. But if the defendant or insurance company does not want to pay fair compensation, we will not hesitate to protect your rights. And just as importantly, we will shepherd you through each step of the process so you know what to expect and so you are ready. To read more about the litigation process, click here.
