Questions & Answers


1. Do I need an attorney?

Insurance companies are in the business of making money. Insurance adjusters are paid and trained so that you get less money. In 16 years of experience, I have never had a client inform me they regretted hiring me to represent them. Please see testimonials included in this website.

2. How is my attorney paid?

I am paid based upon a contingency (percentage) fee. Therefore, you don't have to pay anything unless and until I recover money damages for you.

3. What kind of damages can I recover for my injury?

Typically, you can recover the following damages when applicable:

A. Medical Expenses

B. Lost Wages

C. Pain & Suffering

D. Mental Anguish

E. Permanent Impairment

F. Disfigurement

G. Consortium

4. How long do I have to file a claim?

An injured person generally has two (2) years from the date of the injury to file a claim. However, we prefer to become involved from the beginning to protect your rights by securing vehicles, records and other documentation to prove your claim. There are many different statutes of limitations so make sure to contact an attorney regarding your specific set of facts.

5. Should I give a statement to an adjuster before speaking with an
attorney?

No. Again, adjusters are paid and trained to defeat your claim and pay you less.

6. Will I have to go to court?

At least 95% of our cases settle outside of court. We believe that if a claim is handled correctly from the beginning, your case will settle and you will not need to have a trial.
