Skilled Trial Advocates
Most of our cases settle reasonably quickly, because we prepare them carefully and thoroughly. We will investigate your accident, measure the extent of your injuries and the required medical treatment and calculate the full measure of your losses. We will seek maximum compensation for you, through a settlement negotiation if that is possible.

What You Should and Should Not Do
If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury in an accident, there are some simple steps you can take to ensure that your rights are protected:
Continue your medical care — and follow your doctor’s instructions. Our firm will work closely with your doctor to determine the extent of your injuries and the care you need so we can include those in our compensation demand.
Do not speak with an insurance company — beyond reporting your accident to your insurance company, you should let Eberhardt & Hale, L.L.P. handle all dealings with insurance companies. We can take the measures necessary to protect your rights and preserve your ability to obtain compensation.
Keep a diary of your experiences — write down what happened before and after the accident, including the names of any witnesses. As your medical treatment continues, make note of your physical pain and any personal difficulties you are experiencing.
