Frequently Asked Questions
Personal Injury

Should I handle my own case or consult a lawyer?

You deserve to be compensated for all of your losses. The insurance company for the person that caused your injury is represented by lawyers and insurance adjusters whose jobs require them to make sure you are paid the least amount of money possible. Our job is to act as your advocate and representative in investigation, negotiation and pursuit of your personal injury claim. Our duty is to see that your interests are protected.

What information should I have when I call?

What will it cost for legal representation?

We never require a client to pay on an hourly basis. We handle injury cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that when there is a settlement or judgment, we receive a percentage of what we recovered for you. And, we never charge for a case-evaluation consultation.

How long will it take until my case is concluded?

Every case is different. Some people recover quickly and some suffer a lengthy disability. It is important to wait until your doctor has determined that your condition needs no further care or treatment. Then, if the insurance company refuses to pay a fair settlement, it will be necessary to file a lawsuit. Although most cases are settled after a lawsuit is filed and preliminary investigation (called "discovery") is conducted, settlement or trial may not occur for 12 to 16 months.
