We know a personal injury lawsuit cannot turn back the clock of time or undo an injury. But good legal representation can help victims pay for the costs accidents cause, without devastating them financially as well. It can also compensate them for their injuries, physical pain and emotional suffering. In the best cases, it can even prevent the same accidents from happening to others, by penalizing bad guys and raising community awareness of the dangers.
If we take your case, it means we think you have a valid claim, but no reputable lawyer will guarantee specific results. And even if you do get good results, it will probably not be quick. But we can promise that we will work hard to get you the best possible financial settlement or verdict — and we have a strong record of past successes that we would be proud to show you.
We've helped thousands of injured people recover the money they need to pay their medical bills, to support their families and to be fully compensated for their injuries. At Holzer Edwards, Chartered we have dedicated our careers to helping injured people. It is our firm's reason for existing. Our firm only handles cases on behalf of injured children, individuals and families who have been wrongfully injured. We do not and will not represent insurance companies, governmental organizations or large corporations.
Some people are uncomfortable with the thought of asking for money to compensate them for injuries. They believe - correctly - that no amount of money will reverse an injury or bring back a loved one. Our civil justice system (and justice systems going all the way back to Biblical times) uses money as a way to penalize bad guys and make their victims whole, as much as possible. The money is for fixing the things that can be fixed, making better those things that can be made better and making up for what can't be fixed or made better. It is an imperfect system, but we do not believe anyone should be ashamed of using it for its intended purpose, especially if they are suffering financially because of the accident. We have yet to meet a single client who wouldn't give back all the money, in a heartbeat, if it could erase their injuries. No one is ever better off after an injury.
