How long will my case take?
One question that will be on many people's minds will regard how long the case will take. The truth regarding the length of time that will pass before the case has resolved will depend entirely on the case. With our team on your side, however, you will be able to have confidence knowing that we are fighting tirelessly for you. The time frame will differ depending on whether your case is able to be settled outside of court or has to go before a judge. Talk to our team in person to determine how long your specific case may take.
Do I need an attorney?
After being injured in an accident or because of the negligence of another, the first decision you will have to make is whether or not to consult with a personal injury attorney. As these cases can be complicated, we strongly advise that you allow a member of our team to look over the details of your case. Not only that, but the amount of compensation you receive is usually closely tied to who is representing you. You may be offered a settlement even if you are not represented by an attorney because insurance companies believe they can get away with offering you less than you deserve. We do not want you to be taken advantage of because you did not have someone looking out for your best interests.
How much is my case worth?
Determining how much your case is worth could help in your decision of whether or not to file a personal injury lawsuit. There are several different things you will have to take into consideration when it comes to determining the value of your case. The cost of your medical care, how much time you had to take off of work, as well as any pain and suffering caused will impact how much compensation you will be entitled to.
How much will my case cost?
On the flip side of understanding how much your case is worth, there is also the question of how much it will cost you to pursue a lawsuit. The last thing our team wants to do is impose a larger financial burden on you when you are already in a difficult situation. For this reason, we offer a free case evaluation so that you can tell us about the details of your case quickly and easily. We also offer a no win, no fee promise, so you will not have to pay anything unless we successfully resolve your case!
