Our Role In The Process

We will investigate what led to your loved one's fatal accident and who can be held liable under the law. Our investigation will include evaluating evidence related to the accident. In car or truck accidents, this means collecting data from the vehicle's black box to determine what happened in the moments leading up to the crash. We will also interview witnesses to the accident and consult with experts in a variety of fields to determine the cause of the accident and how we can maximize compensation in your claim.
