Frequently Asked Questions
There are cases where negligence is clear. In most cases, some research has to be done to establish negligence. Every case is different, and it is up to our firm to look into your case and determine negligence.
For contingent fee cases, we do not receive any attorney fee unless we successfully resolve your case. Case costs for things such as obtaining records, research and court filing fees are approved by our clients in advance so there are no surprises. We work hard to keep those case costs as low as possible.
We accept cash, check, credit, venmo, Paypal and Zelle. We are happy to offer our clients payment plans when needed.
This depends on the extent of your injuries. Once a case is settled or taken to trial, you cannot recover more money later. We work with our clients and their medical providers to make sure that their cases are not settled in haste or prematurely. Subject to statute of limitations concerns, it is usually wise to reach maximum medical improvement and take some time to make sure that your condition is stable without flare-ups or re-aggravation after treatment concludes before approaching settlement negotiations or filing suit.
We keep our clients fully informed about the timelines of their cases and any developments in their cases as they occur. We are happy to accommodate client preferences for contact methods and frequency. We can be reached via phone, email and via our website. You can request in-office, phone or video conference meetings. Our phones are staffed 24/7 for emergency needs as well. We are always happy to provide updates, and we often proactively check in with our clients to gather additional information and answer any questions.
Your gut is probably telling you the answer to this. If you are worried that you may need a lawyer, please contact us. We will provide you with honest feedback. If having a lawyer will not add value or help your situation, we will be happy to give you that reassurance, too.
Although there is a small number of cases that need to go to trial, many can be resolved through negotiations and/or mediation. It is best if each case is treated as if it will be going to court, and alerts the insurance companies the lawyers are serious about the case.
