How soon after my injury should I contact an attorney?
Many people choose to contact an attorney right after an injury or accident occurs. Also keep in mind that there may be important time limitations that could affect your claim.
What are the kinds of injuries the attorney can handle?
Our participating law firms handle a variety of personal injury cases. These include, but are not limited to, car accidents, workers' compensation claims, medical malpractice lawsuits and defective product lawsuits. If you're not sure whether your injury would make a good case, you can discuss the matter during your free evaluation with a personal injury professional.
How does the attorney get paid?
You can discuss fee arrangements with the attorney during your case evaluation. In many personal injury cases, attorney's fees are paid only when and if the case is won at trial or settled out of court. If the case is on a contingent fee basis and isn't won or settled, the attorney won't get paid, though you may still be responsible for certain court costs and fees and may be liable for the opposing party's attorney's fees and costs.
