Frequently Asked Questions
An insurance company offered me a settlement payment. Do I need an attorney?
Yes! Insurance companies for at-fault parties are usually quick to offer settlement payments to unrepresented victims in hopes of taking advantage of people who are vulnerable and unfamiliar with the legal system. Even if you are absolutely dead-set on avoiding trial, an experienced attorney can help you negotiate with the insurance company.
I am not sure I have a valid claim because part of the accident was my fault. What can I do?
If you were partly at fault for the accident, you can still seek compensation. Your damages will be reduced proportionately based on your level of fault.
