What does “full coverage” mean for car insurance?
The term full coverage has no specific legal meaning. The term is misleading because it may suggest that a person has more insurance coverage than they actually have. We recommend at least $100,000 for liability and UM coverage.
Claims Settlement Process
The Claims Settlement process generally takes 60-90 days after the client is finished with medical treatment. Cases take longer when lawsuits are filed.

Can I get a FREE consultation with a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Absolutely. Most people don’t know that they can speak to one of our lawyers about their case without any commitment. Our lawyers work on a contingency fee basis which means we do not charge you unless you receive a monetary award either thru settlement or verdict. We understand that clients are often without a car or forced to take off from work due to the serious and debilitating nature of their injuries, thus the last thing an injured victim can do is hire and pay for an attorney on an hourly basis. We offer free telephone consultations, free office consultations and even free in home consultations.
What do Injury Lawyer typically charge?
Each and every injury claim is different and the amount of work and expense involved varies from case to case. On a typical car wreck case our law firm charges a contingency ranging from 33 1/3% to 36% depending on the nature of the car wreck. If the case does not settle prior to filing a lawsuit they contingency fee may be scaled up, since trials are often long and expensive. All of our fees are contingent in nature which means you owe us nothing until you receive a monetary award thru settlement or verdict. We will not send you bills for our time or expense during the case and you will only pay when you are compensated for your injuries.

How do I know if I have a case?
If you have been injured thru no fault of your own you most likely have a viable injury claim. Cases involving car wrecks, slip and falls, workplace injuries are often clear cut and it will be obvious whether or not you have a case. However some of our best trial results have occurred when it was not so obvious. If you have been ticketed for causing a wreck you may still have a case. Police officers are not perfect and sometimes they ticket the wrong party. In one case our client was deemed at fault when he turned left in front of a tractor trailer, however our tractor trailer accident lawyers were able to prove that the big rig driver actually caused the wreck and the jury awarded in excess of $11 million. If you or a loved one have been injured and you believe that somebody else caused the incident call us for a free no obligation consultation.
