We Help Victims Recover
Our top priority is helping victims get justice and secure the compensation they need to move forward. In addition to helping victims of car wrecks and truck accidents, our firm has assisted criminal victims and their families with cases involving murder, rape, sexual assault, sexual molestation, kidnapping, human trafficking, assault, abuse, neglect, drunk driving, and more. We also frequently represent victims who are children, teenagers, the elderly, persons with special needs, and anyone else who has suffered mistreatment at the hand of institutions.
Our Jefferson County personal injury attorney has brought successful cases against local and state government agencies, private businesses, insurance companies, and even individual employees who failed to protect or intentionally harmed individuals who were in their care. Note that these cases are different than domestic abuse custody cases (for which you will need a family lawyer) or criminal cases (which would require a state or federal prosecutor). We can help you understand your legal options, determine whether you have a case, and advise on the best course of action.
