Personal Injury & Workers’ Compensation

When you or someone you love has been injured, your primary concern should be getting through the healing process, which often requires a lot of concentration and dedication in itself. No one who is recovering from an injury should have to deal with the additional stress of mounting medical bills, the uncertainty about returning to work, an insurance company harassing them about their claim, along with the many other challenges that may come. Our attorneys understand that our clients are dealing with much more than the obvious physical pain that comes with a significant injury. In addition to protecting our client’s rights, we do our best to relieve our clients of the stress caused by dealing with medical bills and insurance companies.

Insurance companies are motivated by profit, so they have an incentive to keep injured people in the dark regarding their rights. Obviously, an insurance company will want to pay as little as possible to an injured person, as opposed to giving that injured person what the law says that they are entitled to receive. Having an attorney allows the injured party to become fully informed before making a decision, and attorneys have a legal and ethical obligation to do what’s best for their clients. Hart Cantrell will be by your side against large and well-financed insurance companies.

The attorneys at Hart Cantrell have handled cases involving auto accidents, trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, dog bites, slip and falls, negligently designed and manufactured products, nursing home neglect, workplace injuries, and much, much more.

Best of all, we enjoy connecting with our clients as we navigate through cases together as part of the same team trying to achieve the same goal. There is no better feeling to us than a genuine “Thank You” and a handshake from a satisfied client at the end of a case.
