On average, accident victims who file insurance claims on their own receive settlements that are 3 ½ times smaller than victims who hire legal representation. Why? Because insurance companies often take advantage of accident victims and their families when they are most vulnerable.
Working with a personal injury law firm can prevent that from happening to you.
Our experienced personal injury lawyers at Martin G. Schulz & Associates will closely examine the police report and if necessary, hire a specialized expert to reconstruct the accident when important details are in question or not known.

Every year, countless people are injured or die in car accidents resulting from the negligence of others. With an astounding number of cars on our roads, it isn’t too difficult to understand how so many accidents occur. Car accidents can result in bodily injury, property damage and even death.
Physical Effects of Car Accidents
Anyone who has ever been involved in an accident can attest to the fact that regardless of how minor it may seem, severe injuries can result. Victims involved in minor accidents can suffer from whiplash, soft-tissue injuries, burns, spinal injury, broken bones, brain injury, bruises, paralysis, and even wrongful death. Your primary goal if you’ve been involved in a car accident should be to deal with your injuries and heal. Following that, you should seek reimbursement for any medical bills, lost wages and damage to your property.
