Personal Injury

A serious accident or injury can be a devastating and potentially life changing event. In addition to the physical pain that you are experiencing and the need for ongoing medical treatment, you may have lost time from work and are probably facing mounting medical bills. This may be one of the most difficult periods of your life, and to get through it, you will need competent and aggressive legal representation to ensure that you are treated fairly. We are here to help.

Clay McCaslin, an experienced personal injury attorney will evaluate your case and assist you in navigating the insurance claims process to obtain the compensation you deserve.

Our Philosophy

If you have been seriously injured through no fault of your own, you already know how difficult and frustrating it can be to navigate the tangled web of the insurance claims process. Filing a claim with your insurance company is typically the first step. Unfortunately, insurance companies will often refuse to pay the full value of your claim, or may even deny your claim outright, at the time when you most need the coverage for which you have paid premiums for so many years. The anxiety and stress of the situation can be overwhelming.

At the Law Office of J. Clay McCaslin, we stand ready to assist you in navigating the insurance claims process and in securing payment of your medical bills, your lost wages, and all of the compensation to which you are legally entitled. We are often able to achieve a fair settlement for our clients without resorting to litigation, but if the insurance company chooses not to cooperate or refuses to settle your case in an amount that is fair, then we will file your case in court and take it all the way to trial if necessary.

Although many cases can be resolved without a trial, our strategy is to prepare for every case as if it were going to trial. We have found that this approach generally yields better results and better settlements for our clients because it signals to the other side that we are not afraid to stand up for your rights and bring all of our experience and resources to the courtroom if you are not being treated fairly. We do not think of trials as a setback or something to be feared, but as an opportunity to achieve justice for our clients who have been wronged.
