A Proven Approach to Auto Accident Cases

As soon as you retain our services, we being building your case and pursuing compensation using a proven step-by-step process:

Investigating the accident

The first and most crucial step in the claims process is investigating the accident and the events immediately before the crash. This includes photographing the scene, interviewing all available witnesses, reviewing accident reports, taking a statement from the responding police officers and working with accident specialists to reconstruct the events leading to the crash, if necessary.

Contacting the insurance companies

Your insurance company and the insurance company of the other driver involved in the crash play a large role in covering your losses. We handle the process of contacting all insurance providers and beginning discussions relating to compensation of your losses.

Gathering medical records

Official documentation of your injuries and treatment is needed to file a Personal Injury and Workers’ Compensation claim. We work with your medical providers to gather all documentation related to your care to prove the type and extent of injuries—ranging from airbag and seatbelt injuries to whiplash and more severe injuries—you have suffered.

Negotiating with insurance companies

The negotiation of a settlement is a viable strategy for some accident victims. Our team conducts assertive negotiations to secure a settlement that covers all your current and future losses. We will never advise you to accept a settlement that does not address all your financial and emotional losses.

Proving your case in court

A settlement is not always possible or the right strategy. If a settlement cannot be reached, or is against your best interests, we take your case to court to pursue a judgement in your favor.

Throughout the legal process, we make sure to help you understand what you can expect from your proceedings, and the steps you should take to protect your health and legal rights.
