Why should I file an injury claim?

You should file an injury claim because by doing so, you may be able to obtain the compensation you need to pay for all the costs associated with your injury including medical expenses and lost time frrom work. An injury could easily place you and your loved ones under financial strain. By filing an injury claim, you won’t have to worry about your financial situation being impacted by medical bills and recovery time.

The insurance company has made me an offer. Should I accept it?

We strongly suggest that you consult with a skilled personal injury lawyer before accepting a settlement offer made by an insurance adjustor. Insurance companies, like any business, operate to make a profit. Insurance adjustors tend to offer lower compensation settlements to injured individuals and often make them believe it’s the best offer they will receive. By consulting with a lawyer, you can ensure that your claim will be properly valued.
