Facing a catastrophic injury or coping with the loss of a
loved one after a fatal accident can be overwhelming. It can be made even more
difficult by an uncooperative insurance company that denies benefits or refuses

and other costs. The volume of paperwork and issues to deal with can be
overwhelming. Hiring an experienced attorney to take the burden off your
shoulders can make your life easier. It can also help make sure your legal
rights are protected and that you receive the financial compensation you're
entitled to for your injuries and hardship.

settlement, and trial. I will aggressively represent your legal rights in any
accident, death, or malpractice (medical or legal) case.
If you've lost a loved one or sustained a very serious injury because of
another driver's carelessness, you have the right to hold that driver
responsible for his or her actions. A lawsuit can't make things the way they
were before the crash, but it can help compensate you for the terrible,
unexpected losses the crash caused. It can also help pay high medical bills and
other costs caused by the accident, and provide financial support for those
who've lost an income to an injury or an unexpected death. And in some cases,
it can help you prevent the same tragedy from happening to others.

more about the basic phases of a personal injury lawsuit below:
1: Discovering a Potential Case
The first step to the personal
injury lawsuit process is to determine if you have a case. Have you been
injured through the negligence of someone else? Were you involved in a serious
accident caused by another person’s wrongdoing? Did it alter your life? These
are all important questions that an investigator will go over as part of
determining your potential to file a personal injury lawsuit.
2: Working with Lawyers
Should you have a case
and are a good candidate for a personal injury lawsuit, we will file all
necessary paperwork against the defendant and start the discovery process.
During this time, both you and the defendant will be questioned as lawyers
prepare for trial.
3: Settlement With or Without Trial
At this point in the
lawsuit progression, a settlement is often (but not always) reached either at
the end of the discovery period or during the early stages of the trial.* If a
case goes through the entire trial process, it will receive a jury verdict that
could be appealed by the defendant.
