Frequently Asked Questions
How will I pay for my legal fees?
We take cases on a contingency fee basis. That means that you pay no fees or costs unless and until we make a recovery for you.
How do you decide whether or not you will take my case?
Once we receive initial information from you about your case, you may be asked to schedule an appointment with an attorney in our firm to meet and further discuss your case. During that free initial consultation we will ask you to bring all documentation concerning your accident, such as a police report, policies of insurance, photographs and medical records and bills (if you have them). We will review the documentation and gather further information from you regarding the facts surrounding your accident. We will also answer your questions at that time. We review each case on an individual basis. Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to take every case. However, if after meeting with you and reviewing your case, we feel we can be of service to you, we will take your case. If we can not take your case, we may be able to refer you to other lawyers we know who can help.
How much is my case worth?
The value of each case is different and must be evaluated separately. We have over 30 years of experience handling accident and injury cases and take a great deal of time to properly evaluate your case. A person who has been injured through the negligence of another may recover for past and future medical expenses, past and future lost wages, and, in many cases the value of your past and future pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life and other non-economic damages. Additionally, if you have a spouse and/or children, they may have a claim in their own right for their loss of your consortium (companionship, services, comfort) due to the injuries you suffered. However, you must know that there is never any guarantee of any recovery.
“Our mission is to represent deserving injured people and to fight whatever battles are necessary to help them recover all the benefits they are entitled to by law, no more, no less, in a timely manner.”
