We are not a volume firm like the attorneys you see advertising on television. At Shiver Hamilton you will never feel like a number or a file on a shelf. If we represent you or your loved one, you have trusted us with one of your most important assets. We take your trust seriously. That is how we differ from 99% of other firms. We answer your calls, we return your emails, and we listen to your concerns. And we get results.
Far too often, clients with serious injury cases end up with a lawyer who lacks the time, skills, or dedication to demand and deliver a fair result from the insurance company. If you or a loved one have a serious injury from a car accident, and you’re wondering where to turn, contact us. We offer a free consultation. Choosing the right lawyer can make a huge difference in the outcome.
Handling a tractor-trailer case is not the same as a car accident case. Tractor-trailers can weigh more than 80,000 pounds and can inflict horrible damage and injury when driven carelessly. Tractor-trailers and their drivers are subject to a wide range of government rules and regulations. We have won substantial settlements for our clients through obtaining evidence of wrongdoing by trucking companies and drivers that many lawyers might have missed altogether. We are familiar with the technical regulations and have the expertise relevant to these cases. We treat these cases with urgency, taking immediate steps to preserve evidence, interview witnesses, and document the accident scene.
Motorcyclists have an equal right to the road as anyone else. Unfortunately, some insurance company defendants will try to “discount” the legal value of the injured biker’s claim, arguing that the motorcyclist assumed a risk by riding. We do not accept those excuses and have successfully fought corporate defendants and insurance companies who undervalued our client’s legal rights. If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident that was the fault of another motorist, call us for a free case evaluation.
When you’re seriously injured at work, you and your family face serious financial and emotional challenges. While worker’s compensation laws limit claims against your employer, there are other avenues that should be explored. We have a proven track record of finding ways to navigate the law in jobsite injury cases to obtain a settlement that substantially reduces your financial stress.
Property owners have a duty to protect their tenants from unreasonable dangers. When a property owner does not correct an unsafe condition that leads to injury, the victim may have a claim. If you were injured due to a negligent property owner, contact us for a free case evaluation.
After a car wreck, shooting death or other tragedy, the last thing a family wants to deal with is gathering evidence for a civil case. Unfortunately, while the family is grieving, the defendant’s insurance company is gathering evidence, taking witness statements, and building their case. We help the victims’ family by giving them the comfort and security of knowing that they have lawyers looking after their interests and building their case as well. Because our clients only pay us if we win their case, families can retain us without having to worry about increased financial burdens. If you have lost a loved one and suspect it was due to another person or company’s negligence, call us for a free case evaluation.
We have recovered over $15 million for our clients in the past two years. Our track record shows insurance companies and corporate defendants that we will not accept less than full justice for our clients. We believe the only way to achieve the best outcome is to prepare every case for trial. Preparing the case for trial is the only way to consistently achieve excellent outcomes in our business.
