A person or company may commit an error that causes injury through careless act. An injured party may sue to recover costs or damages due to fraud, trespassing, emotional harm, lost wages, medical expenses or future losses decided upon by the courts. Filing a lawsuit may help you gain compensation, hold the tortfeasor responsible to pay damages, prevent future reckless actions and defend your legal rights.
If you’ve been injured in an accident you want representation by a trustworthy law firm that specializes in personal injury law suits. If you’ve been accused of causing harm to another personal injury attorney may be your defense and protect your legal rights. Personal injury attorneys like Siegfried and Jensen can help you build a winning case.

BBB Rating Elements
The Council of Better Business Bureaus rates the way a company interacts with their clients. Rating is based on public responses voiced directly to the company or other data resources. Complaints are included with any positive reviews and effect the rating.
Business evaluations explain the most significant factors that raise or lower a company’s rating.

Long years in operation with no complaints filed with the BBB are factors that raised the rating for Siegfried and Jensen to A+.
