April 2022 – Last Month’s Results – Warnken, LLC Recovered $2,015,634.17 for 48 Injured Clients

Warnken, LLC had another $2M client recoveries month.  48 cases resulted in money to the client. Of the 48, five cases resulted in six-figure recoveries.

Success in one case does not represent guarantee of success in another case. Please keep that in mind when considering your personal injury, workers’ compensation, medical malpractice or car crash case – no two matters are ever exactly the same.

Many factors go into determining the value of a personal injury case. Injuries, medical bills, and missed time from work are important, but don’t tell the whole story. The personal injury lawyer’s job is to help you recover the most compensation possible for your injuries.

We do not promise specific results or specific numbers – 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…
