We’ve all heard the TV and radio ads: “If you’ve been injured in an accident, call the law firm of… today! But while just about any law firm can produce and air a TV spot, it takes a very special law firm to secure justice and just compensation for people who have been hurt because someone else was careless or negligent. It takes a law firm with extensive experience in personal injury law, comprehensive knowledge of how it is applied in our community, and the resources and will to investigate, pursue, and win complex lawsuits. It takes the legal team at Betras, Kopp, and Harshman.
At Betras, Kopp, and Harshman we don’t just practice personal injury law—we live it, we study it, and our entire staff is immersed in it. Our concentration in this practice area has enabled us to obtain substantial monetary settlements in cases involving nearly every facet of personal injury law, from dog bites to airplane crashes, from slip-and-fall accidents to multi-vehicle highway collisions.
The process we use to achieve those settlements begins the moment you contact us to discuss your case. Before you become our clients we’ll offer what may be the most important piece of advice in personal injury law: never accept an offer from an insurance company until you’ve at least had the opportunity to consult the experienced personal injury lawyers at Betras, Kopp, and Harshman.
We’ll remind you that even though insurers spend millions of dollars on TV to convince you they are your good neighbors, or that they want you to place your family in their good hands, or that they are just a bunch of funny cavemen or friendly lizards who want to take care of you, the fact is that insurance adjusters have one goal in life: to pay you as little as possible for your claim. That’s why the first words out of an adjuster’s mouth are often, “Now, there’s no need for you to contact a lawyer…”
But, of course, there is. Personal injury law—even cases that appear run-of-the-mill—are actually extremely complicated and their outcome can impact you and your family’s standard of living and quality of life for decades to come.
Take something as seemingly simple as an injury caused by a dog bite. The insurance adjuster for the dog owner will try to convince you to settle your claim for the cost of the medical treatment you received immediately after the attack. Unfortunately, many dog bite victims require multiple plastic surgeries and years of physical therapy to fully recover from their injuries. Treatment the victim will pay for if they made the mistake of settling the case too soon and for far too little.
The experienced personal injury lawyers at Betras, Kopp, and Harshman will make sure you don’t make mistakes that could cost you thousands of dollars and years of heartache. We’ll carefully investigate and evaluate your case, give you our best advice, and win the financial settlement you need and deserve at the negotiating table or in court.
