Auto accidents shatter more than windshields. They destroy lives,
hopes and dreams. In fact, during 2001, over 3 million people were
seriously injured in motor vehicle accidents and approximately 42

Most importantly, do not consider accepting a settlement from an
insurance company without first obtaining a lawyer. Insurance companies
are not on your side. Their mission is to make a profit, often at
the expense of their policy holders and injured individuals.

sources, such as insurance or individual assets, are available
for payment of a settlement or damage award.

and prove the damages, and collect the settlement or judgment. We
