FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: HOW SOON AFTER AN ACCIDENT SHOULD I CALL YOU?
Answer: Contact us as soon as possible. Before you sign any insurance documents, make a statement, or divulge any inforamtion regarding a given situation -- you need to consult proper representation. Often times a statute of limitations (a limited time period in which a party can file a lawsuit) is involved. This means the clock starts ticking and the timetable to act begins after an accident has occured. The quicker that you contact us, the quicker we can begin working to ensure you receive the compensation and aid you deserve.
Q: HOW DO I PAY THE LEGAL FEES?
Answer: We do not charge any fees unless we win your lawsuit. Our firm works on a contingency fee basis, which means we collect a percentage of the total recovered in the suit, along with any incidental costs.
Q: WILL I GET TO SPEAK WITH A LAWYER IF I CONTACT YOU?
Answer: Yes, we feel that personal interaction with our clients is vital. In order to best help you we need to understand your situation, and the best way accomplish this is through communication.
Q: CAN I RECOVER IF THE OTHER PARTY HAS NO INSURANCE?
Answer: Often times yes. This depends on your insurance policy. Uninsured motorist coverage allows you to recover for medical bills as well as pain and suffering, even if the other party was uninsured.
Q: HOW DO I KNOW IF I EVEN HAVE AN ACCIDENT CLAIM?
Answer: If there is even a question, please give us a call. A consultation is free, and we will give you an honest opinion about what the options are in your case.
Q: HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO FINALIZE ACCIDENT & PERSONAL INJURY CASES?
Answer: The process can range anywhere from a few weeks, months, or even years, depending on the complexity and severity of the case itself and injuries sustained. While this may be daunting, you will only be directly involved in certain parts of the case -- we take care of the rest.
Q: WILL I HAVE TO GO TO TRIAL?
Answer: Many attorneys are willing to settle a case before trial, for less than the case is worth. We are ready and prepared to do whatever is necessary to get you the full amount of what you deserve, whether that means going to trial or not. If a trial does occur, we will make sure that you are well prepared beforehand.
Q: WHY SHOULD I HIRE AN EXPERIENCED TRIAL ATTORNEY?
