Frequently Asked Questions:

The insurance company may make an offer,
but how do I know it is a fair offer or settlement?

Experience has shown that forces which oppose you often take advantage of economic difficulties.  A settlement offer made to you might be less then fair value.   Early involvement of my legal representation can help this situation.

Will I have to go to court?

My intention is to achieve fair compensation for you through settlement before court action is taken. I have experience to tell whether a settlement offer made to you is reasonable and fair. If your case cannot be fairly settled, I am fully prepared to take it to trial.

How long will it take to get a resolution?

It is difficult to place a time frame on an injury case. I know you want your problem resolved as quickly and as inexpensively as possible, and I will make my best effort to avoid delay and keep you informed every step of the way. The main focus in an injury case is to get proper medical treatment.  I will assist you in obtaining doctor and medical referrals and help you get your life back together.

When am I responsible for attorney fees?

Injury cases are taken on a contingent fee basis.  This means, I do not receive a fee unless and until you receive a settlement.  At that time, the fee will be based on a percentage of what has been recovered.  I do offer free initial consultations on other matters.  You will not be charged attorneys fees for me to review your case.

Why am I somewhat hesitant in hiring an attorney?

Your insurance company has a team of lawyers to assist and represent them. You also have the right to know your legal rights.  If your insurance company would just be fair, you would not have to hire me. You need expert advice as to your legal remedies.   I can explain every step of the process and be able to advise you on what to expect and when.
