The Pennsylvania Personal Injury Lawyers and Ohio Accident Attorneys at The Law Office of Dallas W. Hartman, P.C. have helped people that have been hurt recover for their personal injuries.

When you visit a supermarket, walk-in parking lot, or go to any business, you are being invited onto someone else’s property. Someone who probably has big-firm attorneys and big insurance companies on their side – people who talk about “premises liability” and “dangerous condition mitigation.” If you have been hurt, you might have gotten a call from a friendly-sounding insurance adjuster. That person may sound nice, but remember that he or she is being paid to minimize your recovery.
