Many of the calls and emails we receive are questions about what type of injury law cases we accept and if their situation is worth pursuing in court. Although each case is unique, we thought it would be helpful to provide a summary of the types of injury cases that we handle. 

Keep in mind that situations that require legal action need to be evaluated as soon as they happen. If you wait too long, you may exceed the legal time limits for filing a claim.
