While insurance adjusters often offer settlements regarding your injuries, these adjusters work for insurance companies and are not looking out for your best interest. Many of our personal injury cases do settle without the need for a trial, as The Bruce Firm are strong believers in the value of mediation, arbitration and other alternative means of resolution of cases. A reasonable settlement, when it can be achieved, eliminates the uncertainty of the outcome of a trial. It also avoids our clients being subjected to the stress and emotionally draining experience of a trial. But The Bruce Firm believe that our success in reaching reasonable settlements for our clients is because we are always fully prepared for trial, and our adversaries know it.

“Mr. Bruce I cannot thank you enough for your representation. When a drunk driver hit me, I thought my life was over. I thought I had no hope when the insurance company tried to hold me 50% responsible for the accident. Nevertheless, you were so responsive and caring to my needs. I was ecstatic that you were able to get me 100% of my settlement. You are an awesome attorney. You Rock!”

“Attorney Bruce was by our side when our mom died in that horrible tractor trailer accident. We did not know how we were going to proceed. He seemed to have a clear plan as to how he was going to rectify the problem and he was able to get a settlement that enabled us to take care of all the financial strain that came with the funeral as well as other expenses. He is truly the best personal injury lawyer. Thank you so much!“

Q: While slowing down for traffic, someone ran into the back of my car. Do I have a case against the driver of the other car?
A: Yes. If someone runs into your car (or you personally) and it was not your fault, then you have a claim for property damage, personal injury, lost wages (and potentially other claims against the at fault driver). However, there are limits, which govern when you can bring a case so you should contact us immediately at a suitable time if you have been injured in a car wreck.
Q: The insurance company wants to take my statement. Should I give it?
A: I usually advise my clients not to give a recorded statement to an insurance adjuster without me present. Many times, the insurance adjuster just wants to document their file. However, sometimes the adjuster will “dig” deeper trying to get information they can use to deny or devalue your case. You must remember that the insurance company does not have your best interests at heart. Therefore, you have to be very careful how you proceed.
