If You’ve Been Injured, It May Not Be in Your Best Interest to Accept a Settlement without Speaking to an Attorney First

Accidents and injuries are unfortunate events that most of us have to deal with at some point in our lives.  Over the years, our attorneys have helped hundreds of clients obtain fair compensation for their losses.  We have represented individuals involved in a wide array of matters including  motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls from improperly maintained premises, animal bite injuries, and a host of similar matters.  If you or a family member have suffered an injury as the result of another person’s negligence, you likely are entitled to be compensated for your loss.  Although insurance adjusters often will contact an injured party offering compensation for their injuries, in most cases it is not in the best interest of the injured party to accept the adjuster’s offer.  Remember that the adjuster’s job is to pay out the minimum necessary to obtain a release for their clients, not to fairly compensate you for your injuries.

In many injury cases, the extent of the injury and the resulting disability cannot be determined until the patient has been fully treated.  An injured party should never agree to a settlement until he/she has completed treatment for their injuries or at least there is a definitive prognosis for their future treatment needs.  We always recommend that you consult with an attorney if you are the victim of another person’s negligence.  Your attorney will be your conscientious advocate to assure that you obtain the maximum available compensation for your claim.  We accept personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, which means we receive no payment unless we make a recovery on your behalf.  We offer a free 30 minute consultation to personal injury victims.
