Our personal injury clients have a lot of questions, and we are always happy and available to answer them. While every case is different, many of the most common questions can be answered in a general way. That is why we developed this database of our most frequently asked questions about personal injury.
Here you can find all kinds of great information on what makes a case viable, how long cases generally take, and what it means when we say we don’t charge fees or costs unless we win your case.
If we do not recover any compensation for your injury, we do not charge you for our attorney fees or costs. It’s that simple.
You will never pay us any money out of your own pocket. We simply keep a percentage of anything we recover.
There are always three outcomes of your initial call to our law firm regarding a new case: 1) We accept the case; 2) We are unable to accept the case (and we will always give you our reason why); 3) We may refer you to another attorney or law firm that is better suited to handle your case.
We are your law firm for life! Give us a call anytime you have any legal questions at all, whether it pertains to personal injury or not. We are always willing and available to guide you in any way we can.
First and foremost, we must be able to prove “damages”. That means there must be a physical injury or death that occurred. In the case of an automobile crash, injuries are common, and relatively easy to prove. In the event of a sexual assault case, for example, it may be a little tougher (but we will still try!)
Second, we have to be able to identify some liability or negligence. And third, there must be some available insurance coverage for us to pursue.
Our law firm has a solution: it’s called a Letter of Protection, or LOP. The LOP is an agreement between our law firm and a doctor’s office that allows you to receive treatment right away, without having to pay any money out-of-pocket now. The LOP “promises” that the doctor will be paid at a later date for their services, but only if we are able to secure compensation for the injuries.
The LOP takes away the worry of having to lay out cash to get treated immediately for your injuries. And that treatment is an extremely important to the successful recovery in your personal injury case.
Additionally, some law firms produce misleading advertisements that give the false illusion that injury cases are all worth tens of thousands of dollars, and the only thing that matters is the money.
When you consider what the general public sees in mass advertisements, it’s no wonder the reputation of lawyers is soiled.
Our law firm will never produce an advertisement that gives false impressions. We also do not break the laws of solicitation of injury victims.
Rather, we rely on our work results to shape our reputation among our clients and peers. Take a look at our recent case results if you’d like to learn more.
