Injured in a Car, Truck, or Motorcycle Accident? We Can Help.
At Taubman Law, we have handled thousands of motor vehicle accidents over several decades in business. When you call our office, you will speak to Bruce or Brian Taubman, not a junior level attorney with little experience. We try cases ourselves at Taubman Law – to date, we’ve successfully litigated hundreds of cases and settled hundreds of others.
Unlike other attorneys, we do not make boastful statements and we don’t refer our clients to other lawyers or dismiss their cases when it gets tough. We use our skill and resources to reconstruct and demonstrate the cause of the accident to explain how it could have been prevented. To better help your cause, we spend the time and resources needed to gather the evidence and medical testimony required to obtain full compensation for our clients from juries and insurance companies. We also investigate all sources of insurance coverage in order to marshal all assets to obtain the largest recovery. This includes uninsured motorist, underinsured motorist coverage, work-related auto insurance, if applicable, and any umbrella polices.
Road accidents are one of the most common causes of personal injury claims, but the most important cases are the ones involving you and your loved ones. At Taubman Law, we work hard to do what’s right for you and your family. We only charge you if we get results, so our time is free unless we can get you the compensation you deserve.
Every case is important, which is why Taubman Law takes a smaller, smarter, and better approach to personal injury law. Contact us today for a free consultation about your case.
