Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury

How much does a personal injury lawyer cost?
Hiring a personal injury lawyer from our firm costs you nothing upfront because we offer free, no-obligation case consultations. If it’s decided that we should work on your case, then we will work for contingency fees. Under a contingency fee agreement, you only pay our attorney fees if we end your case with a successful settlement, verdict, or award. The amount we are paid will be equal to a percentage of that winning amount, too, so you can always afford to hire us.

What percentage of personal injury cases go to trial?
Are you worried that your personal injury case will end up in expensive and frustrating litigation? You should know that most personal injury claims end in a settlement before ever going to trial at all. About 5% of all valid personal injury claims will even be considered for litigation, and even fewer actually go to court for a conclusion brought by a judge or jury.

Do I need a personal injury lawyer?
You do not need a personal injury attorney for any legal reason, but it is highly recommended that you hire one. A lawyer working on your case for you can anticipate legal challenges before they arise, navigate your case with minimal delays, and deal with any communications involving the opposition. No matter the value of your case, you should at least talk to a personal injury lawyer to see what they think about it and what issues you will probably encounter. As mentioned, our initial consultations are free to make getting helpful legal info easier.
