Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost to hire a personal injury attorney?
We understand the financial strain that a personal injury can cause. That's why we offer free consultations and work on a contingency fee basis. We don't charge any upfront fees, and we only get paid if we successfully recover compensation for you. We base our fees on a percentage of the settlement or verdict obtained, so you don't have to worry about paying out of pocket. We will discuss all details of our fees when we meet with you and before you sign a contract so you’ll know what to expect.
How long will it take to resolve my personal injury case?
The timeline for resolving a personal injury case can vary depending on the case's complexity and the opposing party's willingness to negotiate a fair settlement. We strive to resolve cases as efficiently as possible while protecting your rights. During your initial consultation, we can provide you with a better understanding of the potential timeline for your specific case.
What if the insurance company offers me a settlement?
Insurance companies often try to settle claims quickly and for as little as possible. Their primary goal is to protect their own interests and minimize their financial liability. Before accepting any settlement offer, consult an experienced personal injury attorney who can assess the offer's fairness and advise you on the best course of action.
Will I have to go to court?
While most personal injury cases resolve through settlements, your case may go to court if we cannot reach a fair settlement.

We will provide strong courtroom representation to fight for your rights and pursue the maximum compensation you deserve.
