Know Your Legal Rights

Everyday thousands of people are personally injured in numerous ways. The leading causes of these injuries are vehicle accidents, falls, dangerous products, and sports injuries. In many of these cases, the injuries cause devastating physical, emotional, and financial ramifications to not only the person harmed but also his or her family members. After an injury occurs, it is important to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible so you can learn what your legal rights are. This early contact provides your attorney the opportunity to preserve any necessary evidence, photograph scenes if necessary and interview any witnesses while their recollection of the events are fresh in their minds.

It is also important to know that no one other than you and your attorney will be acting to protect your interests. The driver that hit you, the manufacturer that placed the defective product into the marketplace that harmed you, the owner of the property with the dangerous condition that caused you to fall, and their insurance companies will immediately be doing all they can to defeat or minimize your claim for injuries. The immediate retention of an attorney will help level the playing field with respect to all these issues.

Gary Mims represented me as my attorney with an issue I had last year. Working with Gary was a pleasure. He was very understanding about my situation, and it was affirming to talk to him. He had a good grasp not only of the legal issues, but the technical issues with my case. Other attorneys I had approached were less receptive because they were not familiar with my particular issue; Gary was. He was professional, empathetic, and a zealous advocate. I was very pleased with how he handled my case... Lisa Ramish

Trusted advice and guidance when you need it most: Gary Mims of Sickels, Frei and Mims, provided outstanding help and guidance through a difficult, emotional and often complex process. When we first thought we might need legal assistance we reached out to several attorneys that we found on the internet and Gary stood out from all the rest: he explained the situation and process ahead in simple terms that we were able to understand...While we hope not to need legal support in the future, if we did, Gary Mims would most certainly be our first, and only, choice. 10 out of 10, thank you Colonel Jeremy Johnson
