The day you were injured, you entered a war zone. It's bad enough that you suffered pain, medical bills, emotional trauma and maybe even loss of work. Now you have to fight the insurance companies. Insurance companies that have declared a war on injured people and their lawyers. Unfortunately, through a well coordinated media and publicity campaign, their propaganda has had an effect. Most insurance companies will not offer a fair settlement until you prove you are ready, willing and able to go to trial.

There are many lawyers that will take your case in the hopes of a quick settlement. Unfortunately, the insurance companies see the same ads on TV too. The best settlements go to lawyers and victims who are ready for trial.

Our sexual assault and sexual abuse practice is very unique. Depending on the case, victims can often recover sizable awards against their abuser, against employers (clergy, teachers, etc.) and sometimes building owners or landlords (failure to make the premises safe). It is sometimes possible to recover even if the identity of the attacker is unknown.

You owe it to yourself to find out if there is recourse in your case. Our consultations are completely confidential and we can tell you exactly what to expect if you do have a case and decide to pursue.
