Will I be charged a fee for contacting the office or for my initial meeting with an attorney?
In most instances, especially in the circumstances of a personal injury claim, there will be no initial consultation fee. In fact, most personal injury claims will be handled on a "contingent fee basis" which means that a portion, (usually 1/3), of your award or settlement collected, will be paid to the Firm for the representation and handling of your case. If there will be a fee for the initial interview, you will be informed prior to your first visit.
What types of cases does the Firm handle?
With regard to personal injuries, the Firm has experience with dog bite cases, automobile collisions, premises liability, products liability and medical malpractice. Additionally, in order to provide a complete range of services to our clientele, the Firm remains current on many other areas of civil practice including Negligence, Divorce, Bankruptcy, Wills, Estates, Business and Incorporations, and Real Estate.
What is my personal injury case worth?
Hours of research and examination by the Firm, and perhaps by experts outside of the Firm, will be required before a final evaluation of the total damages in your personal injury case can be completed. The client's responsibility will be to get well while the Firm submits your medical bills to the proper insurance carriers for payment, and negotiates a property settlement for your damaged vehicle and/or other lost property, and collects all of the available information concerning your injuries and related damages. When the evaluation is completed, usually after the client has reached a medical end-result, demand for settlement is made and the person(s) who caused the client's injuries and his/her insurance company are given an opportunity to settle the claims short of time-consuming and expensive litigation. If the matter cannot be settled timely, a lawsuit is usually filed and the matter is turned over to a Judge or Jury for determination after trial.
How will I pay the Firm for its representation of me and what is a contingent fee?
"Contingent Fee" refers to the financial arrangements agreed upon by the Firm and its client for payment to the Firm for services rendered. In most cases personal injury claims are handled on a 1/3 contingent fee basis which means that the Firm will retain as payment for its services rendered to the client, 1/3 of the total amounts collected for the client from the individual(s) who caused the client's injuries or from their insurance company. Each personal injury claim has its own particulars and the issue of payment for legal services rendered will be discussed with each client in the initial attorney-client meeting. Out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Firm on behalf of the client will continue to be the responsibility of the client, even if no money is received from the party who caused the injuries.
How long will it take to resolve my personal injury case?
Each case is different and special to the particular client and circumstances. Commonly the determining factor in resolving a personal injury case is the time it takes for the client to reach a medical end-result. It is difficult to evaluate a case and advise the client of the value of his/her losses until such time as the client has reached a point in his/her medical treatment where the experts can advise the Firm as to the full extent of any permanent loss of function experienced by the client and the cost of any likely future medical treatment. Some cases settle more quickly than others. However, personal injury cases can take from a couple of months to years to settle or to complete the trial process. This Firm takes great satisfaction in keeping the client informed at all phases of representation until the case reaches a final resolution.
