Our goal in any accident case is to help recover the maximum compensation possible for the victim. In many cases, proving that the defendant was negligent is the least of your problems. Establishing the amount of the damages necessary to cover your losses can often be the real challenge.

We work with medical, vocational and rehabilitative experts from many fields to make sure that your injuries are properly diagnosed, treated and documented. We then use our experience with insurance claims adjusters to protect your interests. In some situations, you can expect just as much trouble dealing with your own insurer as you might with the other driver’s insurance company, especially on medical expenses or underinsured motorist coverage.

Shaw Law Ltd. has seen a rising trend in recent years toward litigation and trial of personal injury claims. Insurance companies today are more willing to take their chances in court while standing by low settlement offers. While the choice to take a claim to trial always belongs to the client, our trial experience can help improve your bargaining leverage while protecting your interests in court.
