Why You Should Never Just Settle With Your Insurance Company

Insurance Company Signing

Many Workers Compensation and Personal Injury cases in Mississippi are settled everyday with no attorney involvement between an injured person and an insurance company adjuster. It makes us cringe to know how easy it is to get good advice from a very skilled and experienced Injury lawyer before signing on that dotted line, yet still people just want to get it over with as quick as possible. Usually it is because you may be thinking an injury attorney will take most of the money or an injury attorney probably cannot get more money for you after fees. You also may be...

Robo-Calls

Our partner firm, Chhabra Gibbs & Herrington PLLC, writes about putting a stop to the annoying robo-calls and unsolicited texts in our latest blog.

Either way, these calls and...
