Were you in a serious accident? Did you sustain permanent injuries because of another’s negligence? If you or a loved one was injured in an accident of any type that was caused by someone else, you may have the right to obtain compensation for your losses including:

Cases on behalf of employees generally are taken on a contingency basis, which means we advance all costs and fees and are only paid, when and if we win or settle the case. Since we are using our resources to help you, we carefully evaluate every potential case before taking it. Due to work load and cash flow, we may limit new cases to those where clients are able to provide an initial reasonable payment towards anticipated costs.* When a case is resolved, the amount is divided in three portions:
Contingency fee – a law firm portion. Percentage we get after successful outcome on a case. Before signing an agreement, we will inform you what we believe to be a reasonable contingency fee.
Expenses reimbursement – we advance all necessary litigation expenses on each case. Those expenses include but are not limited to: court filing fees, deposition costs, transcripts costs etc. Expenses will be recovered after successful outcome of the case.
Your portion – during a case you will be in constant contact with your lawyer, who, after investigation, will discuss with you an amount you can expect to get or settle for. We will negotiate with the opposing party for you with your best interest in mind. You will be the one to make a final decision.
Since we are using our resources to help you, we carefully evaluate every potential case. Most of the time we will give you an answer almost immediately. In other instances, we may need additional time for investigation. Because of the small number of cases we accept, we develop strong personal relationships with our clients.
Everyone in the office works on some aspect of each case. We have developed an approach, where all team members meet every week to discuss all cases, plan strategy and exchange information. Your case would be worked on by a lawyer, a paralegal, and other specialists. They will work closely together and you would benefit from it.
Nearly all cases settle, which means a resolution between disputing parties is reached before or during the trial. Some cases get resolved within a couple of months, some may take a year or more. With a contingency fee, we don’t get paid until you do. That is why we are motivated to resolve your case quickly. We will constantly keep you posted on the timeline of the case and do our best to resolve it as soon as possible.
