What to expect from your attorney
What should I know going in?
Put our experience to work for you. Unless money is collected for you, you pay no legal fees. Your initial consultation is free-over the phone or in our office. You can speak with an experienced attorney to discuss your legal rights and options. All necessary costs to pursue your case will be advanced on your behalf. If no money is collected for you and you have followed our advice, you won’t be asked to repay them.
If you do not have the necessary doctors or health care providers, we will provide you with names of respected medical professionals.
What happens if I have a case?
We will perform the legal research necessary to support your case. Then, we will notify insurance adjusters of your claim through letters of representation. This ensures you won’t be bothered by the at-fault party’s insurance company.
After compiling all medical bills, records and any other information necessary to support your claim, we will send a demand letter to the at-fault party’s insurance company to demand appropriate compensation. This is basically a letter which states the reasons for your claim, and asks that they “make it right.” We will negotiate with the insurance company to ensure maximum recovery.
We will keep you updated with any offers that are made to settle your case. At the end of your case, you will be provided with full accounting of all the expenses, your medical expenses, liens on your case and legal fees so you can see exactly how much money you’ve received from the settlement or injury verdict.
If an appropriate settlement is not reached, your attorney will consult with you regarding a lawsuit, and what it means to you and your involvement. Only you can approve the final settlement of your case. We can make suggestions, but at the end it is your decision.
What if a settlement is not reached?
If an appropriate settlement is not reached, you and your attorney can discuss filing a lawsuit.
If a lawsuit is filed, we will help you respond to interrogatories and discovery requests, as well as prepare you for your deposition. Your attorney will conduct the depositions of the defendant and any key witnesses.
Your attorney will continuously consult with you and prepare your case for trial. At the conclusion of your case, we will ask for your feedback on your experience with us.
After your case is completed, we will stay in touch. You have the option of subscribing to our newsletter, with periodic legal information which may be of interest to you.
Our clients and past clients are encouraged to come to us with any legal question or concern they may have. We do not charge for this service. If your legal question or concern is outside of our area of expertise, we will provide you with a referral to an appropriate attorney.
