Since 1990, our attorneys have successfully handled a wide variety of personal injury, medical malpractice and workers compensation cases resulting in millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts for our clients. From car accidents to doctor’s failure to diagnose cases involving death or serious injury, our experienced attorneys offer professional representation on a contingency fee basis (no fee until we’re successful). Whatever your situation, one of our attorneys has likely handled that type of case many, many times before.
Contact an Experienced Injury Attorney Right Away
When you or a loved one has been injured, it is extremely important to speak to an experienced attorney as quickly as possible. Do not wait. Time limitations apply to every type of injury case, even those involving a child injury. If you wait too long, you may be prevented from ever trying to collect compensation or file a lawsuit. Some types of injury cases, such as those involving public transportation or municipalities, often have much shorter time limits within which a lawsuit must be filed before your right to file is forever lost.
The Insurance Company is Not Your Friend
If at all possible, it is important to speak to us before you speak to an insurance adjuster or lawyer for the other side. The insurance company is not generally interested in doing the right thing. But what they are definitely interested in is trying to settle your case for the smallest amount of money possible. That is their business. They are not in the business of giving away any more money than absolutely necessary. The smaller the settlements that they can get away with, the higher their profits. The higher their profits, the better for them.
They may offer to pay your medical bills, lost time from work or offer to get your car fixed quickly. They may seem like they are trying to do the right thing, but in the end run, what they are trying to do is give you the smallest amount of money possible without making you mad. Usually, an adjuster who works for the other side will try to get you to discuss your case with them on the telephone. Most of the time, this is on a recorded line. Once you have spoken to them, they may try to use your own recorded statements against you to lower your settlement even further.
How Much is My Injury Case Worth?
It is very difficult for an injured person to figure out what is a fair settlement. And the other side knows this. But you can pretty much be sure that whatever they offer you is usually not as fair as it should be. Therefore, it is generally best not to talk to the other side at all until we have spoken to you about your case. Many people have taken what should have been a great case that could have been settled for a high dollar amount, and completely ruined it by talking to the other side first or trying to settle the case before calling us. We know what a fair settlement for your case should look like and we’ll share that information with you, because we’re in this together.
No Fees Until You Win
That’s because when you hire our office, we work only for you. There are NO attorney fees to pay unless we recover damages for you and these fees are a percentage of what is collected. So obviously the more money we can collect for you, the better it is for us as well. You never need to worry about our firm accepting any money directly from an insurance company. We work only for you and any fees we receive will come only from your settlement. If we can’t get you a settlement that you are happy with, we don’t get paid. Most importantly, our fees, in many cases, are lower than those of the other top law firms. Our fees are sometimes as low as 20% of the settlement, depending on what type of case you have. A lower percentage fee could potentially mean thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars more in your pocket.
