It’s rare that anyone sets out to deliberately injure another, but it’s not uncommon for people to engage in what the law terms “negligent” conduct.

If you’ve suffered a serious injury or a catastrophic loss because someone wasn’t paying appropriate attention, the law entitles you to compensation. A lawyer’s job is to recover the maximum amount you’re entitled to. Don’t short-change yourself by thinking you can do this on your own, or by playing into the hands of the insurer for the individual or company that’s responsible for your harm.

Many people make the mistake of thinking if they play fair with an insurance adjuster, their good faith will be returned in equal measure.

Don’t be naive!

Insurers don’t make profits by paying claims.

Any statement you make to an insurance adjuster will be twisted to save the insurance company money, even when it’s your insurance company asking the questions!

Your medical records will be scoured for minor details later used to undermine your claim’s value.

Your social media postings, your e-mails, your personal diaries…all fair game to discredit you in the eyes of an insurer.

Before you talk to any insurance adjuster, claims administrator, or investigator talk to us!

If you have no medical coverage, we can help. If you are losing money because you cannot work, we can help.

Even if you have great medical insurance, did you know you will likely have to pay your insurer back from your personal injury settlement?

We understand how to fight, negotiate, and reduce these “subrogation” or “reimbursement” claims from your medical insurer.

Sometimes this involves complex application of federal law, and you would be ill-advised to attempt to chart a course through these waters without counsel.

We are also willing to take on commercial torts, such as business disparagement, misappropriation of trade secrets, and tortious interference claims. We have the skills required to effectively litigate and try these kinds of cases, and we have flexible payment options, including pure contingency, where you only pay us if we recover for you, and hybrid retainer, where we mix contingent fee representation with reduced ‘pay-as-you-go’ fees.
