Personal Injury

Your whole world can change when you’re suddenly injured by another, through no fault of your own. You’re in pain. You need medical treatment. Medical bills are an unavoidable crisis. You’re losing income because you’re unable to work. Worst of all, often the person who injured you, or their insurer, may just turn away, attempting to avoid responsibility.

Our goal and mission is to lift the legal burdens from your shoulders. Our pledge is to work diligently and tirelessly until you receive a full and fair recovery of damages. 

You are entitled under the law to be completely and fairly compensated for your injuries, your pain and suffering, your disabilities, the wages you lost, your medical expenses, and loss of the full enjoyment of your life. We will fight to secure the maximum recovery allowed by law to try to bring your life back to some level of comfort, both financially and emotionally. 

Our firm has achieved this goal, obtaining judgments and settlements into the several millions of dollars. We have represented our clients competently and consistently through the claims process, litigation, trials, and all levels of the appellate process. Our firm has experienced, dedicated attorneys, as well as state of the art computerized legal research to gather the law that can win your case. We practice in a number of areas, including auto accidents, offshore and maritime cases, medical malpractice, products liability, and wrongful death. Consultations are free. Then, we will handle your case on a contingency fee basis, for a percentage of whatever we secure for you. No attorney’s fees are due unless a recovery is obtained. 

If you have been seriously injured or lost a loved one and would like to discuss your legal rights, please call us for an appointment.
