This allows you to focus on the business of life and regaining your health. We will check in with you regularly while you are receiving treatment so that we are aware of your situation. After we have acquired incident reports, witness statements, and other necessary evidence we will send a demand for payment to the insurer. If we cannot reach a reasonable settlement, then we will quickly file a petition with the court to initiate a lawsuit. After litigation has begun, we will use the discovery process to obtain evidence of the defendant’s negligence to further prove your damages and prepare for trial. We understand that you have been wronged. We will focus on the law so you can focus on your future.

“My husband and I were very pleased with the care given to my case. I won't lie, I was nervous about having to consult a lawyer, but knew it was necessary when I was not getting treated by the company responsible for my accident as I felt I deserved to be treated. Daryl Hayes was our main lawyer. We couldn't have been more pleased. The entire staff at DC Law made us feel comfortable in our pursuit of fairness.
