FAQ

Is it really necessary to hire an attorney?

Yes! Insurance companies have large legal teams who represent their interests. They want to settle your case as quickly as possible and for the least amount of money they can get away with. Hiring a good lawyer will ensure that you have someone who will protect all of your interests – financial, medical, and safeguard your legal rights.

How long will it take to resolve my case?

Every case, like every client, is unique. Our goal is to resolve your case for the maximum amount. We are not a volume-based law firm like the firms that advertise on television constantly. We are selective about the cases we take. This means that we devote all of our time and attention to working for our clients. Some cases can be resolved in a matter of months, while others may take a year or longer to maximize their value.

Will I have to go to court?

Most cases can be settled without the need for a trial. That being said, we are always prepared to take our cases to court if that is what it takes to ensure the best result for our clients.

How much do you charge for representing me?

We only make money on your case if we obtain financial recovery for you. There is no charge for our services until your case is resolved. This means that our firm will front all of the costs associated with your case (ie. medical records, deposition costs, expert witness fees, etc.). We bear the burden of any financial risk associated with handling your case.

What can I expect to receive from my case?

The value of your case is based upon many factors related to your accident, such as: cost of past and future medical treatment, lost wages, pain and suffering, your quality of life, emotional distress, punitive damages, and any inconvenience associated with your injury(ies). Additionally, the amount of insurance coverage that the defendant has can substantially affect the value of your case

What should I bring with me when I come for my initial consultation?

  • A copy of your insurance policies – car, homeowners, umbrella – if you have them. Photos of the accident scene or damage caused by the accident to either yourself or your property, ie. automobile, motorcycle, etc.
  • Any medical records related to the injuries sustained in the accident.
  • Any correspondence between you and any insurance company related to the accident.

  • Wage loss information.
  • We will make copies of any information that you provide to us so that you can retain your original records.
  • Use your cell phone at the scene to take pictures of the cars and scene. Most importantly, pictures of your body – especially any bruising which will fade over time
