Personal injury cases that involve catastrophic losses can often include serious brain damage, debilitating physical injuries, mental scarring and wrongful death. Injured victims and their families frequently have to deal with unbearable pain and even perhaps, the loss of a loved one as a result of a serious personal injury.
Unfortunately, in many cases accident victims are asked to sign documents they don’t understand and give recorded statements to people they don’t know. Insurance companies and other unscrupulous parties will often try to obtain confidential information from families and friends that can be used against the injured in a court of law.
Understandably, reaching any type of a fair injury settlement with an insurance adjuster can be a tedious and frustrating experience – one that is very difficult to navigate without the help of an experienced professional that has your best interests at heart.
In situations like that – you need to speak to someone you trust. Someone that you can depend on. A personal injury attorney at Lewis & Keller, formerly Mike Lewis Attorneys, is here to offer that help. With over 150 years of combined legal experience, we have the knowledge and resources to handle your injury litigation.

Important Tips To Remember
Before you begin talking to insurance company adjusters or outside parties that are involved with your injury, it is important to employ the services of a dependable law firm, who will generally ensure that you are as protected as possible during the litigation process.
Some important points worth noting are :
- never sign a release or give a recorded statement until you have consulted a lawyer
Signing a release prematurely could cause you to receive much less than your injuries are actually worth. An experienced litigator with extensive knowledge in gathering evidence in injury cases, is the best source to help you decide exactly what your case is worth – they can bring a wealth of wisdom and expertise to your lawsuit, and make it as robust as possible.
- don’t wait to speak with a law firm
Waiting can lead to the loss of important facts relating to your injury. Witnesses may have moved, photographs can go missing, and those who may have caused your injury can make it more difficult to find information relating to your case.
- remember to document your findings
Take photographs, write down the names of witnesses, and collect pertinent information relating to your injury. All of these things will be valuable to your case and help you receive compensation for your injuries.
- ask your insurance agent about uninsured motorist coverage
If you’re in a car collision with an uninsured or underinsured driver, you may have difficulty settling your claim for property damage and injury. It isn’t expensive and can save you thousands of dollars in the long run if you have it when you need it. You are protected should you be involved in an accident with an uninsured driver.
- seek the services of reputable personal injury attorneys
The most crucial call you can make is to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible after suffering an injury. At Mike Lewis, we are here to help!
