More than Just a Check

Your personal injury lawsuit is not just about money, it’s about making sure that you and your family are taken care of after your accident. It’s about paying rent, paying bills, and ensuring your children’s future. That’s why at Walner Law®, our representation doesn’t end when you get your settlement or judgment check.

If you need help in getting the best medical care, we are here. If you do not have insurance or the financial resources to see the best physicians, we will work for you to find the best healthcare professionals that will tend to your injuries and wait to be paid when we win your case.

We work hard to maximize your benefit from your case, which means understanding from experience how best to utilize the settlement or judgment. We can help you find an investment advisor to get the most out of your money. We can also help set up annuities to structure a settlement for minors so they can get long-term benefit from the money. If necessary, we can also help find a guardian for minors or disabled injury victims. Our goal is to ensure that you are still seeing the benefit of your case 20 years from now or more.

WHY HIRE Our Firm?

Settlement or Lawsuit?

In many cases, you may be offered a settlement today that is far below what you wanted and have to make the best decision about whether to accept this offer or pursue your lawsuit, which, on average, will require 2½ years to complete. This is your decision, but we can help you get all the information to make the right one. First, we have former insurance adjusters on staff to help negotiate the best settlement up-front. Then we can negotiate with all the parties who want money from your settlement, including:
  • Unpaid doctors
  • Health insurance
  • Medicare/Medicaid

If you settle early in your case, it is often possible for us to get many of your bills cut drastically. This increases the value of your settlement over your eventual litigation victory, which would require you to pay many bills in full.

When you have a case pending you may hear about loan services on TV or through some form of media. If you are solicited for a loan against your case, we will investigate the benefits and draw backs of your offer. We can also procure loans for you from respected institutions. For a fee, we can get you the best possible deal so that your life will not suffer because you are out of work and cannot keep up with your living expenses.
