We can help determine who is responsible for your injuries and how a claim should be managed from the date of the incident through the conclusion of the claim. The claims process can be complicated and often involves insurance companies, employers, doctors and hospitals. Hiring an experienced lawyer to work on your behalf is an important first step.
We understand that motor vehicle accidents can have a serious impact on your life. Serious injuries can impact your quality of life and can affect your ability to work, your ability to care for yourself, and your ability to enjoy your hobbies and activities. We have experience handling a wide range of motor vehicle accident cases and can identify the issues you face and craft a strategy that maximizes your right to compensation. Accidents involving pedestrians may raise different issues than those involving a motorcyclist. An accident with a commercial vehicle may raise different issues than would an accident with a passenger vehicle. It’s important to consult a lawyer who can identify and explain these differences and advocate the best approach on your behalf.

If you need medical care, see your doctor, or if urgent, go to the Emergency Room.
