Some of our attorneys are retained by insurance companies to defend their insureds in cases arising out of automobile accidents, trucking accidents, products liability, landowner liability, and other types of cases. We also are engaged by insurance companies and other clients to render opinions on coverage questions which may arise under their policies, and to file declaratory judgment actions where necessary to clarify the obligation of the insurance company under the policy issued.
If you have been injured in an automobile accident caused by a careless driver, you have the right to recover the damages you have sustained. It is important to understand your rights and to be represented by counsel in attempting to assert them. Our attorneys and paralegals are knowledgeable and experienced in protecting the rights of our clients arising out of automobile accidents. If you, a family member or friend have been injured in an automobile accident, you should contact us prior to signing any document or accepting any payment from the other driver or his insurance company.
If you are unable to work due to a major injury or illness, including a mental illness, you may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits. To receive benefits, you must be disabled for a continuous period of time and there are other requirements that you must meet. If you have applied for these benefits, and your application has been denied by the Social Security Administration, you have a right to a hearing and an appeal of this denial, and you have a right to an attorney to represent you at this hearing. Our attorneys, assisted by two paralegals, who are also registered nurses, are experienced in handling these appeals.
