Why It Is Important To Have Local Representation
Over the past several years, ads for personal injury law firms are all over television and radio broadcasts. It is important to understand what a small local law firm offers that large firms cannot. At Carter Law Offices, P.C., we provide exceptional, personalized client service that residents in our community have come to expect out of a Des Moines business. We know the local roads, courts and expectations from local insurance companies on the other side of the table. Your case will never be put on a conveyor belt. We fight to help you get the highest possible compensation your case deserves.
We Will Deal With The Insurance Companies
Many severe injuries will not manifest themselves until months or even years following the injury event, and they may require a lifetime of medical treatment and rehabilitative care. This is especially true of brain and spinal cord injuries. The insurance companies will likely try to minimize your claim or get you to take an early settlement that will not provide you with adequate compensation to fund your short- and long-term needs.
Carter Law Offices, P.C., can help. Insurance companies and opposing counsel recognize that we are not afraid to take cases to trial. Even if your case settles out of court, our trial experience enables us to negotiate from a position of strength in our efforts to obtain a fair settlement for you.
