Watch as Weis details the first things you should do if you are injured in an accident and shares what advice he would give someone who has been in a motor vehicle accident.
Kevin Weis is a Partner and heads the firm’s Personal Injury practice group. He has been with the firm since 2003 and in practice since 1999. Throughout his legal career he has practiced almost exclusively representing clients who are seriously injured or killed as the result of negligent individuals and corporations in such areas as Motor Vehicle Negligence, Medical/Healthcare Negligence, Premises Liability (“slip and falls”), Products Liability, Dog Bites, Tractor Trailer Negligence, and General Negligence. His passion is to assist his clients in obtaining fair compensation for what has been lost and cannot be replaced, to hold wrongdoer’s accountable and hopefully protect the public from such dangers, and to ensure his clients are treated with dignity and respect from the powerful and well-funded adversaries they face in a time of stress and often tragedy.
