All websites operated by ServeTheInjured, Inc. (“ServeTheInjured”), including servetheinjured.com, are subject to the following disclosures and disclaimers:
The ServeTheInjured Attorney Directory is a paid advertisement, and is not a lawyer referral service, pre-paid legal plan, legal-services organization, or advertising cooperative. It is also not endorsed, approved, or recommended by any state bar association.
The attorneys listed in the Attorney Directory may have paid a fee to be listed, and the list of attorneys that appears on the screen in response to your search does not identify every attorney authorized to practice law in the practice area or ZIP code you select.
ServeTheInjured sells advertising in the Attorney Directory in tiers, and the attorneys pay varying amounts for each tier. The greater the amount paid by an attorney, the more prominent their listing will be in your search results. ServeTheInjured limits the number of attorneys in each tier. The attorneys who pay the highest fees are listed at the top of the screen that displays search results, and five (5) attorneys may purchase a listing in the top tier. The attorneys who pay the second highest fees are listed after the attorneys in the top tier, and ten (10) attorneys may purchase listings in the second tier.
ServeTheInjured does not represent that attorneys listed at the top are superior to the other attorneys. Your selection of an attorney should not be based only on the tier in which they are listed or the prominence of their contact information in your search results. The decision to hire or engage the services of an attorney should be based on an independent investigation of all relevant facts and circumstances.
You are not required to retain an attorney who meets your search criteria, and ServeTheInjured will never refer you to a specific attorney or service. Your selection of an attorney shall be your sole responsibility, and ServeTheInjured shall not have any liability related to your selection. It is entirely your responsibility to make sure that the terms on which you engage an attorney listed in the Attorney Directory are acceptable to you. ServeTheInjured shall not share in any legal fees paid or payable by you to a listed attorney.
ServeTheInjured makes no promise, warranty, or guarantee about the completeness, accuracy, or truthfulness of the attorney information contained in the ServeTheInjured Attorney Directory. The information in the Attorney Directory, including each listed attorney’s contact information and areas of practice, is provided and based on representations by, and is the responsibility of, the attorney. When an attorney applies to be listed in the Attorney Directory, the attorney must represent that they are a member in good standing in the State(s) in which they are admitted. ServeTheInjured does not verify the attorneys’ representations.
ServeTheInjured does not recommend or endorse any listed attorney and/or the services they provide. ServeTheInjured also does not guarantee or make any representations regarding the competence, integrity, honesty, or trustworthiness of, the qualifications of, the quality of advice provided by, or the ability or suitability of any attorney.
The fact that an attorney has indicated in the ServeTheInjured Attorney Directory that they practice law in one or more areas of practice is not intended to imply or constitute a representation that such attorney is more expert or competent than any other attorney in that practice area. In addition, such an indication also does not mean that the attorney is a specialist in such practice area, possesses specialized knowledge in such practice area, or has been certified by any state bar association or any other organization as a specialist or expert in such practice area.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold ServeTheInjured and its affiliates, employees, and agents harmless from any claim, suit or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by a third party due to or arising out of your use of the ServeTheInjured Sites or any attorney or service provider listed on the ServeTheInjured Sites, your violation of these Terms and Conditions or your violation of any rights of another.

ServeTheInjured reserves the right to modify, alter, or update these Terms and Conditions at any time without prior notice. You agree that each visit you make to the ServeTheInjured Sites shall be subject to the current Terms and Conditions, and your continued use of the ServeTheInjured Sites following any such modification, alteration, or update shall constitute your acceptance of such modification, alteration, or update.
If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, void, or unenforceable, such provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary and replaced with a valid provision that best embodies the intent of these Terms and Conditions, so that these Terms and Conditions shall remain in full force and effect.
The failure of ServeTheInjured to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms and Conditions shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. These Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement between you and ServeTheInjured with respect to your use of the ServeTheInjured Sites, and supersede any prior or contemporaneous agreements between you and ServeTheInjured regarding such subject matter.
