Our Specialty and Expertise
What is a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
A personal injury lawsuit is a claim filed by an individual who has suffered injury or death. The injury or death must be caused by the negligent, reckless, or intentional conduct of an individual, company, or government entity.
What Do I Have to Prove to Win a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
To win a personal injury lawsuit, you will need to prove three things: (1) the other side acted in a negligent, reckless, or intentional manner; (2) the other side caused your injury; and (3) the amount of your damages.
It's our job as your lawyers to gather the evidence to prove your claim; and then present your best case to the insurance company, judge, and jury.
