Will my consultation with you be free?

We offer all potential clients an initial free consultation. Please feel free to call us to schedule an appointment. If you are seriously injured or hospitalized, our attorneys will work with you to schedule an appointment at a mutually convenient location or time. It is generally not in your best interest to speak to any representative for the negligent party.

Do not speak to an insurance company or the claims adjuster in the absence of the legal advice of a lawyer.

The reason is that the insurance company has a business interest of minimizing your claim and recovery. If you must speak to the insurance company, talk to a lawyer first so that you may be advised and prepared for questions that likely shall be asked. Typically the insurance adjuster will want to take a tape recorded statement of you. Before giving such a statement, you should be prepared and counseled as to how to answer expected questions. Always remember, you are not obligated or required to give such recorded statements.

Who will pay for my lost wages and medical bills?

This is a difficult question and it varies from case to case. If you are in a motor vehicle accident, your private medical insurance or the MP (Medical Payments) coverage on the vehicle in which you were in at the time of the accident may pay your medical bills, and perhaps wage loss to some extent up front, before settlement. If you do not have medical insurance or MP, either personally or through work, the insurance covering the vehicle you were in at the time of the injury may cover the payment of your medical bills and wage loss. Any other monies owed will be paid out of your final recovery when your case is settled.

How long do I have to pursue my case?

The law establishing the time limit in which a lawsuit can be filed is called a Statute of Limitations. Different types of cases have different Statutes of Limitations. It is important to know which statute of limitations applies to your case based upon the facts of your specific matter. It is critical that you contact an attorney as soon as possible after your injury so that the statute of limitations can be determined and witnesses and evidence can be preserved. Please contact us so we may evaluate your claim and statute of limitations as soon as possible.
