I don’t like the idea of suing. Why can’t I just accept an insurance company settlement?
Research shows that most Americans would rather not become involved in a personal injury lawsuit. Members of our industry are largely to blame for this sentiment, having developed a reputation as greedy and insensitive.

By choosing to accept an insurance company settlement, you are almost always short-changing yourself. Insurance companies are businesses governed by profit motives, and as such, they will offer a lowball settlement at first in hopes it will be accepted. While winning compensation won’t reverse the damage that has been caused, it can help to make your family’s life smoother down the road.

We are the first to admit that our profession has a negative reputation, and we make it our goal to stand apart from other Accident Attorneys by offering unprecedented customer service governed by empathy and care.

Can I handle the case on my own?
