June 2022 – Last Month’s Results: Warnken, LLC Recovered $2,271,316.62 for 44 Injured Clients

Warnken, LLC was the mark of consistency, month over month. We concluded the same 44 cases in June that we did in May. We recovered more than two million dollars for our injured workers’ compensation, personal injury, and auto crash clients last month. Of the 44, five cases resulted in recoveries to the injured client in excess of $100,000.

Please remember, when considering your personal injury, workers’ compensation, medical malpractice or car crash case – no two matters are ever the same and our successes in the past don’t guarantee success in your case.  The injuries, the lost wages, and the medical bills are only one piece of whole picture – a lot goes into determining the value of every claim. The only way to know for sure is get a good lawyer who can assist you and go through the process.

Warnken, LLC never promises specific results or specific numbers and we believe that no honest lawyer should. We promise our best efforts. Also, you don’t pay our fee or expenses, unless you win. Please see last month’s results below…
