If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of someone else’s reckless, careless, or negligent activity, the Law Office of William D. Cook is committed to achieving optimal recovery in your case. We offer free consultations, and we are willing to spend the necessary time and energy evaluating the merits and potential obstacles to your claim to make sure you receive an honest appraisal of your situation. We will never accept a case that we do not feel has a reasonable expectation of success.
Preparing for Your Consultation
When we meet for our consultation—either by phone or in person—please have your insurance policy and a police report (if applicable) available along with any other relevant documents (such as medical records) or photos. These documents can help provide a comprehensive understanding of your claim, and they will allow us to begin working on your case immediately.
Working with Your Medical Providers
We always tell our clients that the five most dangerous words when it comes to your injuries are “maybe it will go away.” It won’t. We urge our clients to take a proactive approach to their health, as it ensures their wellness while also advancing their case. Even if you feel you’re your symptoms have subsided and that you are on the mend, there’s a chance that your injuries could be more severe or prolonged than you or your provider initially thought—the only way to find that out is by following the advice of your health care providers and by keeping all scheduled appointments.
We are not physicians, and we cannot restore you to your pre-injury state of health; what we can do is strive to provide you with the best possible financial recovery given the circumstances of your case.
Hiring an Attorney
Personal injury law is a nuanced and complicated field that requires a professional, experienced, and trustworthy attorney fighting on your behalf against forces that would frustrate your proper financial recovery. Identifying those responsible, proving that they are accountable for the damages incurred, and clearly documenting the impact of your injuries as a result of the incident are complicated tasks that require a deep understanding of the law, as well as the practical experience applying it. Our promise to you is that we will work diligently on all aspects of your case to achieve the financial recovery you deserve.
