How much does a personal injury lawyer cost?
Our attorneys offer a contingency fee payment option. As a result, you will owe no upfront legal fees. We provide free initial consultations to all our personal injury clients so there is no cost to receive a case evaluation.
If we decide to take your case, you will not receive a bill until we successfully resolve your case. In addition to our attorney’s fees, you may be responsible for expenses related to your personal injury case that may include court fees and photocopying fees.
Do all personal injury cases end up in trial?
Most personal injury cases are resolved without trial. Insurance companies and at-fault parties understand that litigation is expensive and time-consuming, so they prefer to find out-of-court solutions to legal claims. The art is to develop the facts and present your claim so as to maximize their perception of your claim — and therefore your settlement.
If the defendant is not prepared to pay reasonable compensation for your claim, we are prepared to handle your matter in court. Our attorneys have compiled an impressive record of court success throughout the state.
How long does a personal injury case take?
The time you commit to your personal injury matter depends on whether you choose to settle your case out of court or file a lawsuit and go to trial. If you are able to reach an agreement with the insurance company, the settlement process could be completed within two months’ time.
Lawsuits can take much longer to end. It may take one or two years for your suit to be argued in court.
How much is my case worth?
There are a range of factors that determine what a case is worth. These factors include the type of injuries sustained, the physical and property damage done, the victim’s lost earning potential, the current and future medical expenses associated with treating the injuries, and pain and suffering.
When you meet with our attorneys, we will review the facts of your case and tell your options so that you are well-informed before you take action.
