  5. Are they members of The Million Dollar Advocates Forum? This is an association of personal injury attorneys with multiple million-dollar verdicts and settlements. View my membership in the Million Dollar Advocates Forum here.
  6. Ask if the attorney handles personal injury cases exclusively. This is not an area for amateurs. If the attorney you seek in a severe injury case also does divorces, criminal law matters, and traffic tickets, think hard before you retain them.
  7. Is the Corning auto accident attorney personable and easy to talk to? They should be because you may be dealing with this person for years in a severe case in an extreme case.

Preparing Your Case for Trial

We have the financial resources necessary to take cases to trial. When an insurance company fails to make a fair offer, they may be surprised that we won't back down. Other Corning auto accident attorneys may be bullied into taking smaller settlements because they do not have the financial resources or time that a trial requires.

We believe you and your family deserve the best possible outcome for the serious injuries you have had to bravely face. We've learned that the more we know about your injuries and how they impact your life and the lives of your family, the better we can present your case to a jury and obtain a fair award. 

We Are The "Personal" Personal Injury Lawyer

We call ourselves the "personal" personal injury lawyers. Because we do all we can to get to know our injured clients and their familieEverythinging that happens to one family member in a serious accident has a rippling effect on both family members. By seeing all family members, we can articulate and show insurance companies and/or jurors how a severe injury has impacted your and your family's lives. Experience has shown us that having in-depth knowledge of our clients helps the insurer and jury pay a fair and just award.
