How I Serve Clients
In most cases when a person has been injured due to another person’s fault, it is the insurance company for the person responsible that ultimately makes the decision about whether to pay a fair settlement or to go to trial. My role as legal counsel is to seek to recover for my client a fair settlement for their injuries early in the process if possible.
Insurance companies often follow a fairly rigorous process in terms of what must be shown to them before they are willing to make a fair settlement. It is not enough to simply claim that their client is at fault; often they need to see specific evidence, which can include medical documentation, opinions of experts, witness statements, and other items before being authorized to make a fair settlement. Having a good understanding of the insurance company requirements helps me to present the important evidence early in the process so that it will be more likely that a favorable settlement can be achieved prior to trial.
If you have suffered damages or injuries caused by another person, please call me. I will explain the legal process for seeking recovery, and how I will work hard on your behalf to recover the full amount that you may be owed.
