Dealing With Insurance Companies:

If you’re in an accident, a key decision you have is whether to hire a lawyer to help make your claim. Some accident victims adopt a “first I’ll try it myself” approach. They start off handling their claim alone, figuring that if things start to go bad, then they’ll hire a lawyer.
The “first I’ll try it myself” approach is a bad idea. Many things are done early in your personal injury claim that greatly affect your case. For example, evidence is gathered, statements are made, and medical and other records are obtained. If you make a mistake in the early stages of your case, it can hurt you later or even cause you to lose your case.
Insurance adjusters know that some accident victims first try to go it alone, and they take advantage of the victim’s not knowing how to build and protect their claim.
A much better approach is to get a lawyer’s help right after the accident. Your lawyer can obtain evidence, be present when statements are made, tell you what to sign and not to sign, and take other steps to get you the most compensation. Starting out handling your case alone and figuring you’ll get a lawyer involving when things go bad almost always results in a bad outcome- and many things can’t be undone.

Family Law & Divorce

We understand that family law matters can be highly emotional, and that different solutions work for different clients.

Many people have the idea that when we file a lawsuit, we are suing the person. We are not. We are suing the insurance company that the person has been paying to protect them against a loss like this. The insurance company that this person has been paying for quite some time.
