The firm’s founder Mark Caruso understands what the insurance company on the other side of a case is thinking. After all, he used to work as an insurance company lawyer. Now he represents accident victims in their fight for compensation against these same insurance industry giants.

Many insurers will drag their feet investigating who caused the accident, or they unfairly try to shift responsibility for the wreck onto our client’s shoulders. Even when accepting responsibility, insurers often make low ball settlement offers which are completely unacceptable.
At Caruso Law Offices, we accept none of these tactics. Everything we do is with one goal in mind—getting our clients the compensation they deserve.
