Defining the Scope of Our Practice

While we seek to help as many accident and injury victims as possible, most of our firm’s resources are dedicated to representing victims of catastrophic personal injury or fatal accident cases. In either scenario, we use our experience and knowledge to hold the at-fault parties responsible while working to secure all compensation available to our clients under the law.

Damages available in catastrophic personal injury cases can include compensation for past, present, and future medical treatment and expenses, past lost wages and future loss of earning capacity, permanent injuries, scarring and disfigurement, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life.

In statutory wrongful death cases, the legal beneficiaries of the decedent’s estate may be entitled to collect compensation for medical bills, the loss of the net benefit of the decedent’s income, funeral and burial expenses, pain and suffering of the victim before death, and compensation for the loss of services, love, and companionship of the deceased.

What Sets Us Apart

Our firm routinely works with renowned expert witnesses in the fields of engineering, accident reconstruction, vocational rehabilitation, financial analysis and projection, and many others, who can help insurance companies, defendants, and jurors understand the root cause of accidents and the full scope of damages flowing from the at-fault parties’ conduct. We also understand the medical aspects of each case and work with treating medical providers to help insurance companies, defense attorneys, and jurors understand the full impact of our client’s injuries. We investigate all aspects of our client’s claims and spare no expense in seeking justice on their behalf.
