        "I highly recommend attorney Fred Willumsen. He is professional, thorough, forthright, and kind. He communicated well throughout the process, took the time to answer any question I had, told me just how things were, whether good news or bad. He advised well on decisions I needed to make, and his support team did a great job in helping to navigate and resolved my case with the best results possible. Thanks again, Fred!"

        I worked with Donal McRoberts and I can say without hesitation that he is one of the most caring and hardworking people I know. He helped me through the absolute worst time in my life. Not only with my case but he made sure I was getting the medical help I needed too. I could never thank him enough for all he did. He protected me the whole time, never letting myself or anyone else put me in a position that could hurt me (mentally). If you are looking for someone to be on your side whether it is be a quick case or a long haul Donal is who you need hands down.

        How long is it going to take to resolve my car accident injury claim?


        Technically, under the rules, the law says you have two years to bring an action from the date of the incident. This is  known as the statute of limitation. Although that’s true, you don’t want to wait that long. Evidence fades. Think about it like an ice cube. If you take an ice cube out of the freezer, it’s only going to last on the counter for so long before it melts into water. Then eventually, it’s going to evaporate and there’s not going to be any remanence of the ice cube. That’s what happens in a car crash.

        Once the car crash happens, the facts about what happened are fresh on everybody’s mind. That’s the best time to start gathering information, looking for the evidence. You want to check to see if there are any videos. Is there any security footage or traffic cams? What kind of information is out there that we can find? What about police reports, or sometimes police officers move on. They leave jurisdictions. They retire. If we can no longer get a hold of them because we waited too long, that’s evidence that’s been lost. That’s evidence that could have helped your case should you ever have to go in front of a judge or a jury to fight for your rights. It’s never a good idea to wait two years until the very last minute to call a lawyer and tell them you were involved in a car crash and need help. When you tell them it was two years ago, the lawyer understands a lot of the evidence might be gone by that point.

        Even though you have two years, it’s never a idea to wait the two years. It’s important to call a trial attorney immediately so that the trial attorney can start collecting all the evidence and preserve that ice cube. We don’t want to see evidence melt away. We want to get the evidence immediately so we can uphold your rights and take it to the insurance company, and hopefully, get your case resolved as quickly as possible and hopefully, put some money in your pocket. .
