Quality Resources

Allen & Allen uses a wide range of resources to help achieve a successful outcome in your case. Some of the resources that set us apart from other firms include:

On-Staff Investigators – The investigators at Allen & Allen are former law enforcement officers with decades of specialized service and skills. They work to secure accident reports, interview law enforcement officials and first-responders, interview witnesses, and gather physical evidence.

In addition to carefully examining the location and scenario that resulted in your injury, our investigators may also be called upon to help document the severity and nature of those injuries with high-resolution photographs. These photos can be used to strengthen your case and, in some instances, increase the amount of settlement offers or compensation received.

Expert Witnesses – We often engage leading experts in their fields to assist with cases. These experts are from across the country and may include engineers, toxicologists, physicians, vocational experts, safety experts, and others whose assistance is relevant. The data and testimony that these experts provide can make a significant difference in your case results.

Crash Reconstruction Specialists – When appropriate, Allen & Allen employs the services of accident reconstruction professionals who use the latest technology to recreate the events that caused your injury. The reconstructions they create help to provide quantifiable data to support your case.

Exceptional Service

Your attorney and case team are committed to supporting and guiding you every step of the way. At Allen & Allen, you’re part of the family. We are honored to serve and the quality of our service reflects that.

Injury Types

Catastrophic Injuries

Any injury that affects the functioning of the spine, spinal cord, skull, or brain can lead to limited cognitive functioning and mobility. Permanent disabilities as a result of a severe automobile crash can have a major impact on a victim's quality of life and financial means.

Paralysis

When the damage to the spinal cord is classified as a "complete" injury to the spine, nerve sensation and voluntary movement is diminished, resulting in paralysis. A victim of a car accident with this type of injury will have to deal with physical limitations for the rest of their lives, often limiting them financially as well.

Spinal Injuries

Upon impact in an auto accident, the spine and spinal cord can experience damaging compression that can lead to bone breakage or nerve damage. A spinal cord injury can lead to extensive medical and rehabilitation costs and can impact the quality of life of a victim forever.

Wrongful Death

The death of a family member due to a fatal accident caused by someone else's negligence can be emotionally and financially devastating. While families are left trying to cope with a tragedy, Allen & Allen can help you recover damages through reimbursement or compensation for the dramatic changes that will follow.
