We have represented clients in matters involving common automobile accidents and slip and falls, to catastrophic fires and industrial accidents. Our attorneys are mindful of the unique circumstances each case presents, and are prepared to aggressively defend our clients from the inception of the lawsuit to its ultimate conclusion through settlement or trial, keeping our clients regularly informed of the status of their cases.
In most situations, insurance is available to our clients to provide for their defense, and we will be retained directly by the insurance companies. Insurance coverage can be afforded for most types if incidents and accidents, under comprehensive general liability, homeowners, automobile and umbrella policies. In many other situations, however, clients can be self-insured for some or all of the loss.
