Recovering Full Compensation For Your Damages
Insurance liability limits may keep your from making a full recovery. To ensure that our clients get fair compensation for their injuries, we concentrate on uncovering facts that support the pursuit of compensation from multiple sources. Our goal is to maximize the amount available to meet your claims because, in the worst injury cases, you will need to recover as much as you can.
We can investigate the possibility of litigation against any number of defendants, including:
- Car companies
- The manufacturer of defective auto parts
- The party responsible for defective highway design or unsafe road conditions
- A negligent or careless driver
- Your own insurer

The Cost Of A Catastrophic Injury
Catastrophic injuries require months – even years – of medical treatment. Some injured people are left with medical issues that will influence the rest of their lives. These injuries are not only emotionally devastating, but pose an overwhelming financial burden on the victim and his/her family. On average, the average expense of a spinal cord injury ranges between $499,023 and $1,023,924 in the first year alone.
