Why Hire A Lawyer?

Handling personal injury claims against insurance companies is a very specialized field. Insurance companies spend hundreds of millions of dollars each year to support tort reform measures, minimize claims recoveries and to defend personal injury lawsuits. Injury victims need an attorney who specializes in personal injury law to protect their rights and maximize their recovery. Statistics have shown that insurance companies pay several times more to claimants represented by an attorney than to those who go it alone. This means that even with a fee to your counsel, you can still net higher compensation for yourself…and without the runaround!

The Law Office of Jeffrey S. Dawson specializes in the field of personal injury cases and has been very successful in obtaining the highest possible recoveries from insurance companies. We generally obtain greater recoveries for our clients than the offers made by insurance companies prior to our involvement in the case.

What Happens When you Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

If you decide to move forward in hiring a personal injury attorney, you will find that the experience is not like “what you see on TV”.

Most cases involve the gathering of evidence and facts, the builiding of the case itself, and a series of negotiations with the insurance company and their attorneys to reach a fair and equitable settlement.

The Law Offices of Jeffrey Dawson will try to resolve your case quickly and with the least amount of stress possible. Although some cases will eventually move to a trial, most are settled prior to an actual trial. Rest assured, if the case does have to be tried, Mr. Dawson will pursue your interests with the most aggressive approach possible.

Many people question if they can afford an attorney to pursue their case. Mr. Dawson works on a contingency fee basis, meaning that his fees and costs are paid out of the recovery or settlement. Mr. Dawson will handle all communication and any negotiations necessary on your behalf. Regardless of what an insurance company may lead you to believe, anything you say or do can be used against you. The purpose of the attorney is to protect your interests and maximize your recovery.

Remember, anyone that works for an insurance company is trying to settle the case for the least amount possible.
