What makes us so great? Well, for one thing, we take the “foreseeability test” very seriously. To determine predictability, in addition to inspecting the incident scene ourselves, our legal advocates employ expensive and highly educated safety engineers, design experts, biomechanical specialists and even accident re-constructionists. And we do this in order to prove beyond a reasonable doubt, it was not your fault!
You see, we want to prove your case beyond a shadow of a doubt to a jury. Our goal is to make sure the insurance adjuster, in-house carrier, umbrella and excess carriers know that they have high exposure to a possible runaway verdict.
And we do so before we even dare step one foot into the courthouse. And this is because our firm is in it to win it. We front load our cases, rather than wait until the last minute after doing little to build the value of your case.
