Before the shock and trauma caused by your car accident have even begun to fade, an insurance adjuster will begin investigating your claim and offering you a settlement so small it borders on the comical. It is important that you do not accept this settlement. Rather, you will need to bargain with the insurance company to ensure that all your losses are covered.

Alas, these negotiations with insurance companies are never simple. They will say and do almost anything to protect their bottom line. In order to get the financial compensation you truly deserve, you will need a personal injury attorney who knows the tactics that insurance companies use to skillfully negotiate on your behalf.

After our attorneys review your case, you will learn how much it is really worth. Not only will our firm correctly calculate your economic losses, but any non-economic damages like loss of consortium, and pain and suffering as well.
