Get Legal Help
If you have suffered serious injury or a loved one has been injured or died through someone else’s negligence, it is vital that you consult with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. It is important to protect your legal rights and recover damages from whoever caused the injuries.
The law limits the time you have to file a claim to recover damages. If you fail to sue within the time allowed by law, you will lose your right to recover damages forever, even if you had grounds for a viable case.
In motor vehicle accidents, there are things which must be done within 30 days of the accident. If these steps are not taken, important rights, like the right to collect “no fault” benefits, like medical bills and lost wages. It is therefore very important to consult with an attorney right away after an accident happens.
NEVER TALK TO ANY INSURANCE COMPANY – ESPECIALLY YOUR OWN INSURANCE COMPANY – BEFORE YOU SPEAK TO A LAWYER AND LET YOUR LAWYER HAVE ALL THE CONTACT WITH THE INSURANCE COMPANY WHEREVER POSSIBLE.
Your insurance company will tell you that they are trying to help you, but no insurance company is ever trying to help you. Insurance companies make greater profits by paying out less in benefits. If you have been injured in a vehicle accident, your own insurance company is probably responsible for paying your medical bills and lost wages, and wants to stop paying them as soon as possible.
DON’T BE FOOLED – NO INSURANCE COMPANY IS EVER TRYING TO HELP YOU IF YOU HAVE BEEN SERIOUSLY INJURED.
Your insurance company is never trying to help you and couldn’t care less about your health – their only real goal is to cut off their responsibility to pay your medical bills and other benefits as soon as possible. Your insurance company may tell you that you have to talk to them, but you have the absolute right to have your own attorney do the talking for you as soon as an accident happens. This is a very valuable right, and you should definitely take advantage of it. Talking to the insurance company directly can cost you dearly.

Our experienced personal injury attorneys believe that the wrongfully injured have the right to be made whole, in other words, to receive fair compensation for their pain and suffering along with other damages. We seek the maximum recovery entitled by law for our clients.
