Personal injury law is highly complex. Cases that may seem simple and beyond dispute on the surface can crumble under the scrutiny of defense lawyers, insurance agents, and professional investigators. Even those plaintiffs who do successfully recover some compensation for their losses without the aid of an attorney are often shortchanged. An experienced personal injury lawyer with an intimate knowledge of the law can help to ensure not only that you receive compensation, but that you receive the full measure of compensation to which you are entitled. A personal injury lawyer can also shoulder some of the burdens that have been placed on you and your family in what is probably a very confusing, very frustrating time, leaving you to focus on restoring normalcy to your lives.
We handle our personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that we collect attorneys’ fees only if you obtain a settlement. Generally, our fees will constitute a percentage of your award, which will be predetermined before we proceed with your case. If you do not receive any financial compensation, we will not bill you for our attorneys’ services, though other fees may be applicable.
The majority of personal injury cases are settled privately before a court date. Our personal injury lawyers will always attempt to reach a favorable settlement with the defendant; however, we will not try to persuade you to accept an unreasonably low offer simply for the sake of convenience. Our attorneys have extensive trial experience and have a history of consistent success in achieving substantial jury awards. If it is in your best interests to pursue a case to verdict, we have the drive, perseverance, and skill to do so.
Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, you may be entitled to compensatory damages for:
