It would be nice if getting a fair accident settlement was easy. Unfortunately, negotiating a personal injury claim with an insurance company can be a stressful and drawn-out process.

That's why we built this website. This Guide helps personal injury victims navigate the claims process on their own. We're not a law firm, but the information here is written by experienced lawyers.

There are two main sections:

  • The Claim Guide walks you step-by-step through the claims process, giving useful insider tips and "how-to" information to help with your claim.

  • Case Types gives all the main categories of personal
    injury claims, and specific information for each case type.

The most common personal injuries result from car accidents and slip and falls, but many people are injured by defective products, dog attacks, work equipment, etc. This site helps you understand the claim and lawsuit process regardless of your particular injury.
