What We Do
Motor Vehicle Collision Cases
At the Law Office of Paul Shimek, we specialize in personal injury cases involving motor vehicles, including cars, trucks, and motorcycles. We represent drivers, passengers, and pedestrians who were injured in collisions caused by negligent drivers. We believe that focusing on this single area of the law is key to providing our clients with the best legal representation. This is why we don’t take other types of cases and why we handle only a limited number of claims. By being selective, your case will receive the personal attention and dedication it deserves. Our goal is to help you recover the maximum amount for your personal injury and property damage claims. Here is what we do:
When you hire the Law Office of Paul Shimek, you’ll have direct access to attorney Paul Shimek. You won’t be pushed off to a case worker, paralegal or secretary. He’ll personally handle your case from the very beginning through the end. He maintains open lines of communication with his clients, and your calls and emails will be returned. You’ll have the confidence of knowing that Paul Shimek is consistently available to answer your questions and discuss your case. You can count on being fully informed of the status of your case, every step of the way. We take every case personally because every case is personal to our clients. While we can’t guarantee a specific result, we can promise to devote the time and personal attention necessary to obtain the best possible outcome for you.
Dealing with Insurance Companies
Dealing with an insurance company after a car crash can be very frustrating. Insurance companies are in business to make a profit – not to help victims. They look after their own interests, not yours. With unlimited resources at their disposal, they use all types of tactics to pay as little as possible. That’s why it’s important to have an experienced attorney on your side – one who knows how to deal with insurance companies and level the playing field. Let us take on that task so you won’t have to. We’ll work diligently to ensure you are treated fairly and receive the compensation you deserve.
Settlement Negotiations and Litigation
At The Law Office of Paul Shimek, we strive to achieve the most favorable result for you, whether it’s through settlement negotiations or litigation. Our approach to every claim is to exhaust all settlement options while being fully prepared to litigate the case. We seek the highest possible settlement for our clients. Every claim is prepared as if it is ultimately going to trial. If the insurance company refuses to make a fair settlement offer, a lawsuit will be filed and litigation will be aggressively pursued.
Providing Peace of Mind
Car wrecks are frightening enough without having to worry about the financial, physical, and emotional aftermath. Having an attorney on your side provides peace of mind. You can rest easier knowing that a seasoned and experienced professional will protect your interests and help you get the money you are entitled to. Let us help you get through this stressful time so you can move on with your life.
We Don’t Advertise
Over the years our clientele has been built solely through referrals from business associates, doctors, lawyers, and clients recommending their friends and family. Every case comes to us through these established personal relationships, and every referral is based on our reputation for excellent service. You won’t see us advertising on television or billboards. We don’t rely on high volume and quick settlements. Instead, we work diligently on a select few cases to provide personalized service for each client.
