It’s your case, you decide! We’ll explain the law and what we would do if we were in your shoes, and why. The decisions are yours – we work for you!

After an accident it’s no longer you vs. the other driver. It’s now about you and the insurance companies. Not just their insurance company, but yours too.

A common claim insurance companies use to avoid paying for your pain. Don’t go it alone – give us a call today!

When someone comes to see us we explain their rights and ask them if they have any questions. When you have questions jot them down and give us a call.

We Got This!

The law requires you to see the insurance companies doctor. And that same doctor will say that the insurance isn’t responsible for the injury.
