Personal Injury
Have you been injured? Hartwell Failey & McCarthy is here to help.
Injuries suffered in accidents are often compounded by a second victimization. Injured people are sometimes taken advantage of at the hands of the person who caused the accident that hurt them. Laws governing personal injury are complex and many people do not understand what they need to do to protect their rights after an accident. Insurance coverage can be confusing and it's easy to misunderstand the coverage in place.

If you have complete coverage or are unsure about your protection, an aggressive and skilled personal injury lawyer can fight for your rights. Our firm has experience working with experts who'”together with our dedicated attorneys'”can help individuals secure the compensation they are entitled to after accidents.

Often, the pain and suffering that comes with an injury is intensified by the realization that the person responsible for the accident has inadequate insurance. If that is the case, you should not give up on your claim'”you may have the insurance necessary to protect yourself. Even if you are underinsured, the policy you have may be enough to cover the expenses incurred as a result of another person's mistake. No matter the circumstances, we are here to help you understand all that can be done to secure compensation.
