Auto Accidents

Auto accident

Nearly 1.3 million people die in road crashes each year, on average 3,287 deaths a day. An additional 20–50 million are injured or disabled. More than half of all road deaths occur among young adults ages 15–44.

Auto insurance is mandatory in nearly all states; however, insurance carriers often don’t pay claims, or try to minimize the amount paid. We will evaluate your claim in a free initial consultation and tell you whether the insurance company is treating you fairly and whether we think you need an attorney or can handle the claim on your own.

Our attorneys are experienced in all types of motor vehicle accidents, including car, truck, motorcycle, bus and pedestrian.

Protect Your Rights

If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, you will likely have to go through an insurance company that collected premiums to pay the compensation you should receive. Unfortunately, while insurance companies are quick to take our premiums, they are often slow to pay claims or outright deny them. Insurance companies have experienced adjusters and attorneys working against you, and that’s why you need an experienced attorney working for you.

Our attorneys have extensive experience in motor vehicle accident claims and are committed to vigorously pursuing the full recovery. If retained as your counsel, we will stand up to the insurance company on your behalf. As skilled negotiators and trial lawyers, we will provide the strong advocacy you require. Our attorneys prepare each case for the possibility of trial. We take time to investigate the cause of auto accidents and gather detailed evidence of your damages. We take time to understand the nature of our clients’ injuries and losses so we can prove the amount they should receive.

The best settlements are recovered by attorneys who carefully gather the evidence and prepare the case for trial, if necessary.

We have that reputation.
