How will I pay my legal fees?
Most personal injury cases can be handled on a contingent fee basis. This means that the lawyer receives a percentage of any recovery that you receive as a result of the case. Additionally, it means that if no recovery is achieved, you don’t pay a legal fee. Should you recover an award or settlement, our costs in developing the case are deducted from that. If you don’t recover, you don’t pay a fee.
Do I have a case?
Until a lawyer has had the chance to investigate your situation, it’s very difficult to accurately state whether or not you have a viable case. That’s why a consultation is a critical first step in any potential injury, accident, or wrongful death lawsuit. If a loved one has been seriously or died as the result of someone else’s negligence, I encourage you to contact me as soon as possible to discuss your options.
How long can I wait before contacting an attorney?
You can’t wait. Injury, accident, and wrongful death lawsuits are limited by statutes of limitations. You have only a certain amount of time to file a complaint. Once that time runs out, the law prohibits you from filing a lawsuit – even if you have a valid claim. That is why it is critical to contact an attorney as soon as possible. An experienced attorney can advise you as to how to properly proceed to protect all of the rights and remedies that may be available to you.
