We make it easy.

Here’s a few answers to some frequently asked questions. Click on FAQ for more.

How much is my case worth?

No two injury cases are the same, so there is no magic formula for determining a particular case’s value.  Some factors that play a role in a case’s value include:  1) the severity of the injury; 2) the amount of medical bills resulting from the injury; and 3) whether the injury sustained was temporary, permanent or resulted in death.

No matter what your injury, we take every aspect of your case into consideration to obtain the highest possible recovery for you.  We also explain the good and bad of your case to you so you’ll always know why we’re valuing your case the way we are.

Because the fee we earn is a percentage of your overall recovery, we are highly motivated and strive to get you the most compensation possible.

Will my medical bills be paid for?

You (and any insurance coverage you might have) are typically responsible for paying your medical bills after an accident.  If you don’t have insurance or the means to pay for accident-related medical treatment, we can often arrange for treatment on a “lien”, which means the treatment you receive is paid out of your eventual settlement.  If you have insurance which pays your medical bills, it’s likely you will have to reimburse your insurance company for accident/injury-related bills it paid at the time your case settles.

Arranging liens and negotiating a reduction in liens at the end of your case is an important part of what we do.  Unlike other law firms, we don’t forget about you as soon as we settle your case.  We will stick by you and help you negotiate reductions to your medical bills and liens.  We work hard to reduce your liens and outstanding medical bills to put more money in your pocket.

How long will it take to settle my claim?

Good question. The time it takes to settle a personal injury claim depends on many circumstances, including the type of case you have, and the extent and type of injuries you sustained.  We have settled cases in weeks or months, and have also (successfully) resolved cases that took 10 years to resolve.  We can and will discuss time-lines with you once we understand the facts of your case.

Understand, if a lawyer tries to settle your case too quickly, you may discover medical problems later that won’t have been captured in your settlement.  In that situation, you cannot go back and ask for more money.  For this reason, we make sure your injuries have been sufficiently treated and are understood before trying to settle your case.  Quicker is not always better.
