Unfortunately, a fun night out with friends or family can be cut short when someone suffers an injury. People are involved in car accidents, slip and fall accidents, and a variety of other situations that cause injuries.
One of the worst parts is that many of these injuries were caused by another person’s negligence and could have been prevented.
That is why those who suffer personal injuries need to meet with an attorney to find out if they have a viable legal claim. Filing a claim can allow the victims to recover fair compensation for the damages they have suffered.
The experienced attorneys at O’Connor, Acciani & Levy know how to build a strong case that gives you a good chance of recovering fair compensation.
We work on a contingency fee basis, meaning there is no charge for your initial consultation and we do not get paid unless you obtain fair compensation. Contact O’Connor, Acciani & Levy today to learn more.
