You may be wondering whether you need legal representation. At The Law Office of Lewis-Crawford, we’ll help you understand the importance of hiring the right personal injury attorney and the circumstances under which it is crucial to seek their assistance.

In each instance, the responsible party ignored the risk posed to others, and as a result, the plaintiff was injured.
