I handle a broad range of personal injury claims, including cases involving:

  • Car accidents: I represent people injured by the fault of others in car accidents.

  • Motorcycle accidents: When a car negligently hits a motorcycle, it is the motorcycle rider who pays the price.

  • Bicycle accidents: Bicyclists have the same rights as cars on the road.

  • Pedestrian accidents: If you are struck in an intersection, the driver of the car may be at fault even if the crosswalk wasn’t marked.

  • Uninsured/underinsured motorists: UM/UIM insurance is coverage you carry to protect yourself from drivers who are uninsured or underinsured.

  • Construction accidents: I have extensive experience helping injured construction workers pursue all claims available to them.

  • Dangerous or defective products: If you are injured by a product, you may have a claim against the manufacturer even if you were using the product in a way that was not intended.

  • Nursing home injuries: I represent nursing home residents who suffer bedsores and other injuries covered by neglect.

I handle all personal injury claims on a contingency fee basis. I will only charge lawyer fees if I am able to recover compensation for your losses.
