Another $1M Month for the Injured ($1,451,540.03 recovered last month)

Warnken, LLC recovered more than $1,451,540.03 for the injured last month.  This consisted of recoveries in 39 separate personal injury cases.  Four clients received six-figure recoveries for their injuries.  But there are two important things to understand … 1.) six-figure recoveries almost always have six-figure injuries.  Six-figure injuries are the kind of injuries that change your life substantially.  2.) Success in one particular injury case does not mean you will be successful in your case.  We never promise results – good personal injury lawyers don’t promise results.  We promise best efforts.  Last month’s results are below…
