Personal Injury

Injuries caused by a serious accident or medical malpractice have far-reaching consequences. Injured victims endure extraordinary pain, lost income, mounting medical bills, and stress that not only causes suffering for the injured victim, but also their family.

Companies and individuals who must defend against personal injury lawsuits face their own challenges associated with claims of serious personal injury, especially when their insurance company threatens to disclaim coverage.
