Serving Injured Workers & Accident Victims
CASE RESULTS – Colin Theis
The way our legal system works, you only have one shot to get what you are owed. That is why it is so important for people with serious injuries to choose a lawyer with proven results.
While the majority of the cases he handles end with a settlement, Colin prepares each and every case as if it were going to trial, and it shows in the results he obtains for his clients.
As the summaries below illustrate, when Colin tells insurance companies that he will fight for his clients in Court if he can’t reach a fair settlement, they know he means it.
Settlements and judgments vary widely from case to case and are dependent upon the unique facts of each case. Please keep in mind that each of the cases below involved hundreds of pages of records and the short summary describing the case should not be used to gauge how much you can reasonably expect to receive for your injury.
