How Our Highly Trusted and Experienced Clearwater Personal Injury Attorneys Can Help You

Clearwater personal injury attorney Jim Dodson and local police participating in the Bikes for Kids initiative.Every step an insurance company makes in your injury claim process is carefully planned to protect their interests. They have trained and experienced insurance representatives working for them. These adjusters know you are vulnerable. They know you lack the experience to effectively deal with them, including what your case may ultimately be worth. Should you talk to them on the phone or answer their letters asking for information? Should you accept some initial offer they’ve made for settlement? The decisions you make on your own and the information you unknowingly provide to them may not be in your best interest.

You need a trusted advocate on your side who has the experience and training to deal with the insurance company while you focus on your needs and the needs of your family. When you hire us, you won’t ever have to worry about responding to an insurance company’s calls or letters. You won’t be left guessing what your case might be worth. You will feel completely confident everything is being done to protect you. We will stand by you to guide you each step of the way.

There are never any hidden lawyer fees or time charges or surprises. Period.
