Do I Need a Lawyer?

The number one question we hear is, “Do I need a lawyer?” After we explain the overwhelming repercussions of an accident, most people say, “Yes!” Filing a personal injury claim against an insurance company can be a very long process, requiring lots of time on the phone with adjusters trying to determine what your case is worth, going through the contentious negotiation process, and wading through stacks of paperwork. For accident victims, this means less time spent recovering and more energy spent second-guessing your personal injury claim.

When you hire Trapp & Geller, you have an advocate on your side. You no longer have to worry if you are signing the right papers. Our firm takes care of every aspect of your personal injury case, allowing you to focus on what is most important—recovering from your injuries and getting life back to normal.
