I have represented dozens of people who have been hurt in accidents that were the fault of someone else. These are people who have been injured in automobile accidents (which are discussed at more length here), as well as other types of accidents, such as by a defective product, in a slip and fall, in a fire, or by a dangerous condition on somebody’s property. I have been involved both on behalf of the victim of the accident, and in defending parties who were claimed to be negligent. Understanding both sides helps to properly prepare and to anticipate the opponent’s attitudes and approach regarding the case. It also gives me a better vantage from which to see the big picture of the case.
Every case gets my personal attention. All telephone calls are returned promptly, and I will regularly keep you informed of the progress of your case, and seek your input.
I also have excellent expert witnesses sources, from accident reconstructionists to private investigators to doctors to engineers to handwriting experts. If your case needs outside experts, I will be able to enlist top experts.
Most personal injury cases are handled on a contingency basis. That means that my fee is based on results. I am paid a percentage of the recovery, whether that recovery be due to a settlement or after a trial. The standard percentage arrangement is one-third of the net recovery. If there is no recovery, then I get no fee. But you would still be responsible for any out-of-pocket costs incurred.
Accidents can cause significant physical and emotional trauma. Few decisions about what to do regarding your injury should be made immediately. One thing that should be decided right away, however, is to get a lawyer involved. That is because your rights could be compromised if things are not handled correctly from the beginning. Memories fade, witnesses disappear, accident scenes change, and injuries heal. And some claims have very short notice requirements to preserve the claim.
I invite you to call me for a free consultation, and to put my 28 years of exceptional service to work for you.
