FAQ


How much is my case worth?

It depends. We understand that no two cases are the same and handle each case uniquely. There are a variety of factors that can influence the value of a case. Generally speaking, the value of a case depends on the types of injuries suffered. The types of compensatory damages that are common in personal injury claims include: medical treatment, pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of future income, emotional distress, and property damage. The extent of these injuries impact the value of your case.

How much does a lawyer cost?

Lawsuits are handled in a variety of ways. Lawyers can be paid on an hourly basis, on a contingency fee basis, or a blending of the two. Personal injury lawsuits are traditionally handled on a contingency fee basis. When working under a contingency fee arrangement, the law firm advances all litigation costs and receives a portion of the funds recovered as payment. If no funds are recovered, the client owes nothing.

What if I can't afford legal representation up front?

Your case may be eligible to be handled on a contingency fee basis. This means that all costs of litigation are advanced by the law firm and the firm is paid a portion of the funds recovered for its services. There are no out of pocket expenses and if there is no recovery, you owe nothing.
