Each year, millions of people in the United States are injured in accidents. Many of these accidents are unfortunately caused by the preventable carelessness of others. The law protects those harmed by negligent parties and allows the injured to seek compensation for their suffering. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident resulting from negligence or professional mistake, you may be entitled to receive just compensation for your physical and psychological injuries.

We will take the time to learn every aspect of your case and assess all aspects of your damages and the issues of responsibility and legal cause. We have the foresight and skill to look at the road ahead and consider future damages which may harm you for years to come including pain, emotional trauma, and subsequent injuries. With this knowledge, our firm can properly evaluate the full extent of your damages and help to determine appropriate goals and strategies to provide you with full and fair compensation.
As your lawyer, our number one objective to aggressively pursue damages against the individuals or companies that caused you harm. This claim may be based on:
- Negligence—When the injury was a direct result of the defendant’s improper actions or inactions.
- Causation—When the actions of an individual or company cause the injury.
- Product Liability—When a product does not meet recognized safety standards and causes an injury.
Following our initial meeting with you, we will reconstruct the accident and gather evidence to support your claim. We routinely work with medical professionals, forensic experts and private investigators that can conduct a detailed investigation and produce an independent analysis of your accident.
In far too many cases, one’s rights are permanently forfeited because the injured person believed what he or she was told by the insurance company. Insurance companies will employ significant resources to challenge your claim in order to maximize their profits. With powerful legal teams and years of experience, these large corporations often have the edge when dealing with the injured. In such circumstances, you take a tremendous risk if you don’t have solid legal counsel and representation on your side. As an experienced personal injury attorney, however, I can help to level the playing field and will work diligently to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
