personal injuryIf you have been injured in any accident, injured on the job, or injured through someone else’s negligence or malpractice, or a product’s failure, Noel H. Benedict & Associates can assist you with your legal rights.

 

We have a substantial legal background based on 33 combined years of solid experience representing people who have been injured and are seeking compensation for their losses. We are experienced in both sides of “tort litigation,” that is, the handling of lawsuits involving injury claims of all kinds. We have gained this ability to analyze both sides of a case by having over two decades of insurance defense experience and claimant’s advocacy.

 

We can provide you a balanced view and a true evaluation of your individual case. After all, you want to hire an attorney who is familiar with the process that an insurance company uses to evaluate and defend their costs.

 

Put candidly, you want someone who knows “how the other side thinks” and what they are most likely to do and say if your case goes to a jury. You also want an advocate who is respected by other attorneys and the insurance companies as a worthy adversary. Noel H. Benedict & Associates looks out for your best interests before your case ever reaches trial. A good attorney doesn’t promise you what you want to hear; he tells you what you need to know to get good results.
