Frequently Asked Questions

What is a personal injury lawsuit?

A personal injury lawsuit is a claim brought to obtain compensation for damages resulting from someone else’s negligence. Unlike criminal cases, these cases do not focus on whether someone violated the law, but instead on whether an individual is financially responsible for the injuries and losses suffered by a victim. When personal injury cases are successful, victims are entitled to financial compensation for their economic and non-economic damages.

Do I have a case?

 

Whether you have a personal injury case depends on the unique facts and circumstances involved in your case. Generally, injured victims have the right to pursue legal action against an at-fault party – whether that be an individual or a corporation (like a trucking company). Because every case is different, you should contact one of our personal injury attorneys to determine if you have a case.

How much will it cost to hire your firm?

 

We work on a contingency fee, which means we only get paid attorney’s fees if and when we successfully resolve your case on your behalf.

How long does it take to obtain compensation?

 

It is different in every case. Many cases settle before litigation, others must be litigated and tried in front of a jury. How long your case takes to come to a conclusion 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 trial lawyers will do what it takes to ensure you get full and fair compensation.
