Sometimes bad things happen to good people. Americans pay an enormous amount of money paid in insurance premiums each year. Unfortunately, insurance companies hire actuaries precisely to determine how much in claims they can deny in order to maximize their profits. Your only defense against an insurance company who denies your claim is to take them to court. You need an attorney to fight for you and ensure that your claim is either handled fairly or that you recover a just settlement or judgment.
If you have been hurt in an automobile accident, including by an 18 wheeler, call my office. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. It is also important to have an attorney who can negotiate with your medical care providers to ensure the greatest recovery goes in your pocket.

You can avoid this by hiring a competent attorney who understands the legal nuances enough to craft a clear will that can be executed without delay. Call my office today to help set up your plan.
