A serious injury changes your life forever. Only you understand the effect your injury has on your daily life: from the time you get up in the morning to the time you go to sleep at night, you struggle to maintain a normal life. Movement may be difficult and your finances may be breaking under the strain of medical bills and treatment fees. It may seem like there is no hope. But there is. At Encompass Law Group, we can help you regain control of your life again to enable you to move forward. Our goal isn’t just to get your medical bills and other direct expenses paid, but to fully compensate you for the injury you suffered. Personal injury cases always include a free case evaluation with no obligations. If we don’t achieve a recovery for you, we also don’t receive fees. In other words, if we don’t win, you don’t pay us anything.
