Know Your Rights

You have a right to retain experienced legal representation

If you have been injured due to the negligence of another person, you are entitled to receive financial compensation. For some, dealing with the challenges of recovering from an injury and confronting the life changes it brings can be overwhelming.After an accident, the insurance company may contact you and appear to be innocently gathering "facts" about your incident. The claims representative may sound very friendly and perhaps even concerned about your well-being, but what you must realize is that he or she is not on your side. The insurance company's objective is to seek reasons to minimize or even deny your claim.

But the adjuster has been so nice!

We believe that the vast majority of insurance adjusters are very nice people. However, you must remember who they are working for. Their job is to settle claims for as little money as possible.

Each and every time the adjuster talks to you that they are evaluating you.

The insurance companies generally think you don't need a lawyer . . . imagine that!

What if I can't get medical treatment?

There are several options available to you when you are hurt and it is someone else's fault.

You may be able to get treatment at a county facility, a clinic, and some doctors who work with our office will allow you to get treatment on a "letter of protection" basis. This means that they will wait for payment until your case is settled.

There may also be other ways of paying for your treatment that you have not thought of, like medical payments coverage on your automobile policy. Call us for a free attorney consultation and discuss your options with a lawyer.
