Read our Frequently Asked Questions page for answers to your general questions
How much is my case worth?
Every case is different. It depends on the severity of your injuries as well as how negligent the other party was. Our job is to recover the maximum amount for your pain and suffering. The goal is to pay off your medical bills and bounce back from lost wages. We do this by gathering evidence and building the strongest possible personal injury case for our clients.
How do you prove negligence?
Since we have medical staff on our team, we consult with them and other experts. We examine all areas of a case in order to show where mistakes were made and how things should have been handled. For example, if you were in a car accident, we look at camera footage, read through the police report and talk to necessary witnesses. We will do whatever it takes to help.
How long do I have to file a personal injury claim?
The statute of limitations generally gives you three years from the date of the accident. That being said, if your claim is against the city, you only have 30 days to notify them. In these cases, time is often of the essence and it is considered a good idea to discuss your options sooner rather than later.
My loved one died as a result of someone else’s carelessness. Do I have a case?
While no amount of money can bring someone back, it is important to hold the negligent party accountable. We have decades of experience handling wrongful death claims. Compensation can be used to cover funeral costs and pay off their medical bills. We will analyze your claim and provide you with honest feedback.
