Personal Injury

Injured? Car accidents slip and falls, and other injuries are a fact of life. But when those injuries are caused by others, our legal system can provide a remedy.

The law requires liability insurance on motor vehicles. Mortgage lenders require insurance on homes, businesses keep workplace insurance on buildings and parking lots. Many people keep uninsured and underinsured motorist coverages as part of their auto policies in case injuries are caused by someone without adequate resources to take responsibility. Those insurance policies are designed to provide protection to you in the event of an injury.

Our attorneys are experienced, knowledgeable and compassionate advocates for you. With more than 60 years combined experience, we can guide you through the process of recovery of your health and property.
