What if the Insurance Company is Offering Me a Quick Settlement?

Often, insurance companies make settlement offers to accident victims early in the case.  However, it is dangerous to settle your claim before you have identified all of the potential damages you could be compensated for.  Certain medical problems can result from accidents several days or even weeks after the accident occurs, but if you agree to settle your claim before all of these potential injuries and damages have been identified, you will not be able to reopen your claim later.  This is why insurance companies often want to quickly settle in order to avoid fully compensating you.

Our firm has been fighting for our clients for over three decades.  Our team will fight for the full compensation you are entitled to.

Can I Represent Myself After Being in a Car Accident?

Insurance companies are focused on making profit, which means that they will seek to pay you as little as possible to settle your claim.  Insurance companies often try to exploit unrepresented persons to their advantage during negotiations by making lowball offers to maximize their profits.  We are experienced in dealing with insurance companies and are confident that we will obtain settlements that are significantly higher than if you try to negotiate on your own.

Protect yourself with professional help.  We offer free consultations, and do not get paid unless you win your case.

How Much Money is My Accident Claim Worth?

The specific dollar value of your accident claim depends on the specific facts and circumstances of your case.  However, most injury claims share certain common factors, such as the extent and permanency of your injuries, the effect your injuries have had on your qualify of life, and the amount and duration of your medical treatment.  If we are unable to reach a settlement that you are happy with, we will go to trial where a jury verdict will determine the value of your case.
