An experienced legal team that won’t stop fighting
Insurance companies may express a willingness to settle your claim. But it’s important to remember that they are not on your side. Their initial offer won’t come close to the compensation you deserve for the loss of your loved one. Our experienced attorneys know the tactics insurance companies use to try to make a claim go away quickly and cheaply. And we don’t stand for it.
We start by learning the facts about the car accident that claimed the loss of your loved one. Our legal team visits the scene of the accident when appropriate and notes road conditions, skid marks and other factors that could have contributed to the fatal event. We’ll thoroughly review the accident report, medical records and all other relevant documents. If there are witnesses, we’ll find them and conduct our own interviews. We may bring in experts, including accident reconstructionists, if needed.
Our team will look for evidence that proves the other driver was responsible for what happened. This helps us build a strong case that the insurance company can’t ignore. It also sends them the message that we are determined to get justice for your loved one, and will be ready to fight for it in court. Many times, this convinces the insurance company to negotiate a favorable settlement.
