Reliable, Local, Works for You.

I was injured in an automobile accident where another driver in a pickup truck crossed over the center line and crashed head on with me, causing serious injuries. Prior to that accident, I had worked as an insurance defense attorney for several years. Now I am an ardent advocate for injured persons against other persons or corporations and their insurance companies. I know what you are going through and I can help.

I represent injured people in cases involving:
  • Negligence
  • Intentional Acts of Harm
  • Automobile Crashes
  • False Arrest
  • Premises Liability
  • Slip and Falls
  • Employment Accidents
  • Dangerous/Unsafe Products or Machinery
  • Dog Bites
From the moment a person is injured, insurance companies begin to investigate, adjust, and evaluate your potential claim as soon as they are made aware of the incident. You should have someone working hard on your side, looking out for your rights. Prior to representing those hurt in these types of cases, I worked for law firms in Vermont, Iowa, and New York hired by insurance companies to defend against lawsuits of liability and damages against people or companies they insured. I have knowledge and experience in how insurance companies gather information, evaluate a claim, determine risk assessment, set financial limits or reserves, and go about setting up defenses that the injuries are not the fault of their insured client or are the fault of the injured person. I also have experience in analyzing and evaluating different types of insurance contracts to determine insurance coverage.

If retained on your behalf, I will:
  • Listen to you
  • Determine your goals
  • Obtain facts and evidence from various sources about the incident and apply the law and legal principles in order to establish the fault of the other party
  • Obtain, review and evaluate the medical records
  • Identify and describe the injuries and medical treatment
  • Obtain the medical bills
  • Inform you of the potential sources you may utilize to pay for medical bills
  • Identify and verify past and future lost income
  • Identify and describe lost enjoyment of activities
  • Identify further medical treatment and cost
  • Describe the pain associated with the injury
  • Identify and negotiate any subrogation interests or liens
  • Determine insurance coverage
  • Negotiate to obtain a result to satisfy your goals
  • Commence lawsuits against those at fault if a favorable negotiated result cannot be obtained
  • Propound and help respond to Interrogatories, Requests to Produce, Requests to Admit
  • Prepare you for deposition
  • File appropriate pre-trial motions
  • Prepare your case for trial
Please call me to schedule a free initial consultation to review your case and discuss your rights. If retained on a contingency fee basis, you pay no fee unless a recovery by way of settlement or jury verdict is obtained.
