Fighting to Get Full Compensation for All Your Losses

When you hire us to help you move forward in the aftermath of a car accident, we will carefully review all the facts and circumstances of your case so that we have a full sense of the nature of your losses. We will work with expert witnesses, getting a thorough analysis of your physical injuries and the limitations they put on your ability to live the life you had before the accident.

In more than 35 years of practice, we have worked extensively with insurance providers. We will aggressively protect your rights, and fight for you with the at-fault party’s insurance carrier, as well as your own. We will make certain you receive benefits for lost wages and income, all medical expenses, the costs of occupational or other therapy, and any expenses associated with retrofitting your home or car to accommodate your injuries.

We will also be a strong voice in court, seeking any damages for losses you have sustained but that are not covered by insurance. We know how to identify all potentially responsible parties so that we can obtain compensation to meet all your needs.
