How much are our attorney’s fees?
We charge our clients based on a contingency fee, which means that the attorney’s fee is paid only if we win at trial or recover money for you. If you win a sum of money in your case, our attorney’s fee is paid from that sum of money. If you lose a case, we do not charge you attorney’s fees.
Costs and other case related expenses advanced by our office are all expenses that have to be paid regardless of the contingency fee.
When to hire a lawyer?
After an accident you may be bombarded with insurance adjusters, doctors, and lawyers. There are so many questions that you don’t know about. Things you need to consider when hiring a lawyer are: Who is at fault? How severe was the accident? Is the insurance company making a fair offer to you? These are all important things you should discuss with an attorney before you settle your case. We understand it is overwhelming and stressful, so contact us for a free consultation.
Settling a personal injury case?
If you have been in an accident and decide to file a lawsuit, it can take many months or even years to reach a settlement, especially if the party responsible to you and their insurance company make low-ball offers. These offers are made to discourage you from pursuing your rights. Many times these offers are not adequate compensation for the injuries and other losses you have suffered, such as lost wages or pain and inconvenience. There are things insurance companies don’t want you to know in order to get the most compensation for your losses. That is why it is important to speak with a lawyer right away to ensure you are being fully compensated for your injuries and losses.
Can I change lawyers?
You have the option at any time to choose your attorney. If you are dissatisfied during your case, you can always contact our office for a free no obligation consultation.
What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
A Traumatic Brain Injury (“TBI”) happens when there is a bump, blow or jolt to the head that disrupts the normal function of the brain. Not all blows or jolts to the head result in a TBI.

Is a concussion the same thing as a traumatic brain injury?
Yes. A concussion is a form of traumatic brain injury and can be serious because most concussions occur without a loss of consciousness.
