  • Michala P
    "I was involved in a car wreck (not at my own fault) and was unhappy with the the insurance claim I was offered. Had no idea what to do and contacted them at 6pm I got a call back directly from Allan M. Siegel at 9pm at night! He gave me incredible advice for free - with it i'll probably be able to avoid court. Clearly, he did this out of kindness and is a genuinely good person, could've taken my money and had me go to court anyway, which is what I was worried about. HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend them to whoever is looking for help!”

As a bicyclist, I am grateful to Allan and his team for recognizing, advocating and fighting for my rights as a bicyclist and successfully taking on my case. I highly recommend the law firm!"

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a personal injury lawsuit?

A personal injury lawyer provides legal services to those who claim to have been injured because of the negligence of another. Unlike criminal lawyers, personal injury lawsuits do not focus on whether someone violated the law. Instead, they examine whether an individual is financially responsible for the victim’s injuries and losses. When personal injury cases are successful, victims are entitled to financial compensation for their economic and non-economic damages.

How do I know if I have a personal injury case?

Determining whether you have a personal injury lawsuit depends on the facts unique to your situation. Generally, an attorney will listen to what happened to you and let you know if you have a personal injury case based on three factors
1.) The responsible party was careless and negligent.
2.) The negligence caused the personal injury.
3.) The injury resulted in harm and compensatory damages.
Because every case is different, you should contact one of our personal injury lawyers for a risk-free, no-cost case evaluation.

How much does it cost to hire a personal injury lawyer?

One of the first questions most injury victims have is whether they can afford to hire an attorney. We work on a contingency fee. That means we only get paid attorney’s fees if and when we successfully resolve your case on your behalf. To find out more, call to discuss your case with the personal injury lawyer Washington DC has depended on for decades.

How long does it take to obtain compensation?

Many cases settle before litigation, but others must be litigated and tried in front of a jury. How long your case takes to resolve will depend on many factors. However, if the wrongdoer refuses to pay a fair amount of money for your injuries, you can rest assured that our personal injury attorneys will do what it takes to ensure you get full and fair compensation.
