There is nothing routine about the simple automobile accident. Each case has to be developed and handled individually. Police reports, photographs of the property damage to the automobile and of the bodily injuries must be obtained. Our investigation staff must examine the accident scene and obtain witness statements.

Therefore, if you are involved in an automobile accident, you should contact our office as soon as possible.
The Right Law Firm For You
When we sat down to think about what best represents our law firm we couldn't think of anyone better than Kevin, an accomplished triathlete who was unfortunately injured during training. Suffering serious injury from a defective bicycle which rendered him a quadriplegic, despite the tragic reality, part of Kevin's recovery and new challenge was supporting himself and his family. The Sanders Law Firm fought relentlessly to recover the essential financial help he needed and deserved. Kevin's life will never be the same, but it will be without question a lot easier because he chose the right law firm to fight for him.
On March 22, 2012, The Sanders Firm and Ed. Nitkewicz, a leading education law advocate, hosted a free seminar discussing how to effectively work with your school district to obtain special education services for your child.
