5 Questions to Ask an Injury Attorney
Whether from an 18 wheeler accident or an offshore drilling accident, an injury caused by another driver or by unsafe working conditions can turn your life upside down.
No one ever said life is fair, and these kinds of accidents really drive that point home.
But we at Anderson Blanda & Saltzman want you to know that the legal system exists to serve you, to tip the scales back in your favor when tragedy strikes your life because of someone else’s poor decisions.
You can’t undo the damage that’s been done. But you may be eligible to receive compensation for your medical expenses and lost wages. That’s what we fight for.
