April ’21 – Last month, Warnken, LLC Recovered in Excess of $1 Million for 19 Injured Clients

Warnken, LLC once again recovered in excess of one million dollars for our injured clients last month. 19 cases in total produced recoveries of $1,125,709.95

When thinking about a personal injury, workers’ compensation, slip and fall or car crash case – no two cases are the exact same.  Just because Warnken, LLC was successful in one personal injury case doesn’t mean success in your case is assured. The injuries, the lost wages, the medicals, and the insurance coverage are just a few of the variables that go into figuring out the value of an injury case. We never promise specific results or specific numbers – no honest lawyer should. However, we promise our best efforts. Also, you don’t pay our fee or expenses, unless you win.  Remember, from the insurance company perspective, one of the most important things that goes into how much they’re going to pay is the quality of the plaintiff’s lawyer.  You should seek out the best personal injury lawyer for your case.
