I have been representing those wrongfully injured in our State since 1990 and have never represented or defended an insurance company. The Hayes Law Firm is concerned about quality representation, not quantity. We aggressively represent our clients in and out of the court room. Please call me for a free consultation today to see if I can help you get the compensation that you are entitled to. The insurance companies and their adjusters have attorneys working for them, please make sure you have an attorney working for you. I have been doing this now for over 30 years and would be honored to meet with you.

I do this to minimize any financial inconveniences to my clients while a claim is pending. My goal is to take care of everything possible for my clients in an effort to minimize the hardships inherent in an accident....

Legal Answers
48 Questions Answered
Q. How long after my attorney contacts the apartments insurance will I hear something regarding my case all bills are in?
A: Since you have retained a lawyer, I would recommend calling your attorney up and asking how long it will this take. It can take as little as a month up to eight months to negotiated claim, depending upon the complexity. I wish you the best.
Q. In a courtroom setting w/Jury, what is the proper way to introduce higher court rulings into a trial?
A: Give the judge the case law before the jury is called in and highlight the applicable parts, and ask him to charge the jury with the highlighted portions. That means he will read those to the jurors when he is telling them about the law which happens after closing statements, and before they deliberate. I hope that is helpful and I do wish you the best.
Q. I got in an accident. It was my fault. My insurance lapsed. Vehicle was not insured at the time of accident.Clean record
A: Just go to court and be very honest with the judge and let him know that you have no tickets and it was an honest mistake. As far as the damages, go to the other person and or their car, they will have to use their uninsurance coverage. This is coverage that is mandatory in our state and it will pay for damages when someone responsible for an accident does not have coverage. I do wish you well and hope this information helps you
