Personal Injury

I have helped numerous clients in all types of personal injury cases. My goal is to see that your legal needs are met and that you receive just compensation for your injuries.

Although most cases settle prior to trial, maximum recoveries can only be achieved through exhaustive investigation and exacting preparation. Many of my cases are won before lawsuits even get filed and others settle without the necessity of a trial. In every case, I battle long and hard to obtain just, full and fair compensation for my clients. Some types of personal injury cases include:

  • Automobile Accidents
  • Tractor Trailer Accidents
  • Serious Injuries
  • Slip and Fall Accidents
  • Intentional Misconduct
  • Products Liability
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Motorcycle Accidents

Some matters may be referred to another lawyer.
