    Verdicts And Settlements

More than ever before, insurance companies are aggressively defending auto accidents, so it is important that your personal injury lawyer knows how to win your case in court. Mr. LaCava has fought and won many car accident cases in court, and is known to be an effective and experienced trial lawyer.
