You Have Questions About Your Injuries. We Have Answers.

Do I Really Need A Personal Injury Lawyer?

While you are not required to have legal representation after a car accident, medical mistake, or nursing home abuse case, it is in your best interest to have a lawyer. Having an experienced advocate is crucial to safeguarding your rights and maximizing your personal injury compensation.

What is A Contingency Fee?

Almost all personal injury attorneys operate on a contingency fee basis, meaning you do not pay unless there is a verdict or settlement. At Ranchor Harris Law, you will only pay once we secure a verdict or settlement on your behalf.

How do I know if I should sue?

What Can A Personal Injury Claim Provide?

A personal injury claim can secure necessary and fair compensation, covering medical expenses, rehabilitation, lost earnings, pain and suffering, and even costs associated with in-home care or home modifications due to injury. We collaborate with experts to assess the full scope of expenses, ensuring any settlement offer meets your needs. With numerous jury trials under our belt, we are ready to go to trial if necessary.

Are The Insurance Companies Really That Bad?

In some ways, no. Insurance companies comprise a mix of individuals, some good, some less so. However, their profit often stems from denying resources to injured individuals. They are driven by profit and willing to avoid responsibility. Fortunately, our defense attorney anticipates their tactics and takes preemptive action to protect your interests.
