    • Past Results-Amputations

      These cases, like spine injury claims, depend on a thorough and expensive work up. Not only do we retain unimpeachable liability experts, we also bring in the most thorough and respected life care planners from hospitals that work with disabled people all the time.

    How to Use Case Builder

    Case Builder contains two helpful categories: cases we are working on now and our past results. Case Builder is a novel concept.
