We will immediately retrieve all relevant documents to assist your case, including all available cell phone records and any relevant video records, work reports, prior accident reports, litigation history, police reports, disciplinary action reports, and other relevant documentation. Employers often carry insurance, whose companies have strategies and tactics they employ so they do not have to pay you full compensation for your damages. Insurance companies make billions of dollars by denying proper or full payment to damaged parties. We will fight for you to get you justice and financial compensation.
