Insurance companies hire attorneys to aggressively defend claims. By devaluing your case, insurance companies minimize costs and maximize their profits. It is our belief that most individuals that settle an injury claim without the assistance of an attorney, receive much less than they were entitled. If you have been seriously injured in an accident, you should consult with an attorney immediately after the accident. Like any profession, this is our area of expertise and we can maximize the monetary settlement you will receive.
We spend a great deal of our time obtaining information from you during your first phone call. We need as much detail as you can give us during this initial call. While it is not necessary, it is helpful to have the accident report, insurance claim numbers and as much detail as possible about the extent of your injuries. This information will be vital in determining how to approach your case.
We handle most personal injury cases on a contingency basis. This means we do not get paid unless you get a monetary recovery. During our first meeting we review the fee and cost contract and answer any questions you may have before we begin representing you on your claim.
Accepting a settlement can be a difficult decision. Besides the monetary value of the offer, you need to consider the personal energy it takes to focus on your case for such a long period of time. We will always present you with the pros and cons of settling your case before trial, but the final decision is yours.
Most cases are resolved before going to trial. From the day after your accident, we need to prepare your case as if it will go before a judge and jury. We will ensure that you understand your options and risks before going to trial. Our Firm will take a great deal of time and care to ensure you will understand the procedures during the trial.
