Overcoming a Personal Injury

In response to Covid-19 and to preserve the safety of yourself and my staff, we are handling all inquiries and appointments via telephone, email and videoconferencing. Please give our office a call and my staff would be happy to assist you.

When you’ve been hurt through no fault of your own, in addition to healing from the physical injuries you have suffered, you will likely feel like you are facing a maze created by the insurance industry. You may have questions like, “Should I talk to my insurance company; should I talk to the person who injured me or their insurance company; why do the insurance companies want to record my statement about the accident and my injuries; why do they want my authorization to access my health records?” It may all seem overwhelming, and no one wants to make the wrong decision when confronted with one or more of these issues. Let me help you protect your rights and avoid the pitfalls into which the insurance companies are hoping you will fall.


If You’re Not Compensated, I’m Not Compensated

You may be worried you don’t have the money to hire an attorney with 25 years of trial experience. Actually, you will not advance me anything in legal fees – I am paid out of the verdict or settlement I obtain for you. If I do not obtain a verdict or settlement in your favor, you don’t pay me a dime in fees. What does that mean for you? It means our working relationship is such that your success is my success and vice versa.

‘He’s Going To Take Care Of It For Me’

I want my clients to leave their first meeting with me saying, “He’s going to take care of it for me.” Let me wage the legal battle, while you focus on healing. I will negotiate with the insurance company and its lawyers in an effort to get the best possible settlement for you, but if the insurance company won’t pay you the money you deserve, I have the trial skills to take them on in court. My personal injury practice covers a wide range of cases, including, but not limited to:

  • Car and truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
  • Slip/Trip and Falls

I have experience helping clients with injuries ranging from whiplash and soft-tissue (muscular) injuries to broken bones, head, neck and back injuries. Throughout the entire process, I will make sure that you know all your options, and the pros and cons of each, so that you can make the best decisions for you, and your future.
