The Process Behind Winning Your Personal Injury Case

Step 1 – Initial Consultation

Regardless of whether or not you think you have a case, you should contact us for a consultation.  We can help you evaluate your circumstances and decide if you have a personal injury case to pursue.  We know and understand the rights you have.  We also understand how the laws work and what we can do to make them work for you.

Step 2 – Building a Case

Once we determine that you have the right to bring a claim, an attorney will meet with you. If necessary because of your injuries, we will come to your home or the hospital.  From here, we will help you begin building your case.  First we’ll need to investigate the accident.  Then, we’ll need to evaluate your medical records. With this information, we’ll also review similar cases that have resulted in substantial awards for the injured party and begin coming up with a course of action.

Please note – During this time, you do not have to worry about fees. Our firm makes the full investment of time and money to win justice for you, and we are only paid if we win your case.

Step 3 – Pre-Settlement

Sometimes, a lawsuit can be avoided by a pre-suit settlement if we can show the defendant’s insurance company that your victory is a certainty. Although we are always prepared to go to trial, most cases are settled out-of-court. So, you will not necessarily have to make a court appearance.

Step 4 – A Trial

We move forward as quickly as possible on your case. Utilizing our knowledge and experience, we can often avoid common delays as we strive for an early court date. If we can’t come to a pre-settlement agreement with the other party, we’ll begin the process of bringing your case before a Judge.

What will my settlement be based on?

The main factors affecting compensation are the medical costs to treat your injuries, the wages you have lost and will lose due to the injury, and the pain, suffering and physical restrictions that have become a part of your life. We believe it is important for attorneys to detail the full impact injuries have on clients, so we will ask you to keep us informed.

What if I lose in court?

If we determine you have a personal injury case and we represent you in the process, we will make every effort to ensure you DON’T lose in court.  With that said, every situation is different.  Similar cases can often end differently depending on evidence, the judge and the other party.  If your case goes trial and the court rules against you, we can consider an appeal, if it makes sense to do so.
