If you have suffered a serious or catastrophic car accident, your life has been altered — at least temporarily, and possibly permanently. Injuries that seemed minor at the time of the wreck can worsen over time, even if treated promptly. You may be suffering economically from lost work time, or facing the prospect of having to either change careers or accept permanent disability as a result of the crash.

We understand how insurance companies operate when approaching a settlement negotiation. We can pursue your claim in court if settlement is not an option, and we fight vigorously for you to receive all the funds you need to restore a sense of normalcy to your life.
