PERSONAL INJURY
In personal injury cases, Sean represents individuals who are injured due to the fault of another. He holds the at-fault party responsible for his or her conduct and, when an insurance company is involved, he makes sure the company pays for the mistake(s) of their insured.

If you have been injured at the hands of another-either a person, persons, company or corporation-please contact Sean so that he may evaluate your case.

You should be aware that most personal injury claims must be brought within one (1) year of the date of injury. If you have been injured in the past year, please contact Sean as soon as possible so that he can assist you with getting the compensation you deserve.

In personal injury cases, Sean does not charge a fee unless he WINS.
