Hiring the right attorney to represent you in an accident is very important.

We are experienced in all aspects of insurance claims and work with determination to succeed for our clients.

Our firm will handle all aspects of your claim to help you get the medical care and compensation you deserve. We will document your injuries, your property damage, your loss of income, and your pain and suffering, and demand full compensation from the insurance company. We will investigate the cause of the accident to establish liability. We will also work with your doctor and other medical providers to identify the care and services you need to recover.

The Lariscy Law Firm will use our experience and knowledge to help you get the compensation and care you deserve.
