Will I need to pay any money to get started? (Personal Injury Lawyer Fresno)
No. Our office only gets our fees paid when we obtain a monetary recovery for you. We handle virtually all of our cases on a contingent fee basis and we will explain the full details of the fee and cost agreement you have with our office before we begin representing you on your claim.
What do I need to know about my case before contacting your firm? (Personal Injury Lawyer Fresno)
Our office spends much of our time obtaining information from clients during the initial consultation. We need as much detail as you can provide about your personal injury case. Although it is not necessary, it is helpful to us if you have an accident report, insurance claim numbers and copies of your own insurance policies at the time of the initial interview. Once we have obtained the necessary information, we can make a final decision about whether to accept your case.
What can I expect from my first appointment with your firm? (Personal Injury Lawyer Fresno)
You will meet personally with an experienced personal injury attorney at the time of your first appointment with our office. Our staff is professional and courteous, and always does its best to listen carefully to your concerns and put your mind at ease. We allow plenty of time to meet with you and discuss your potential claim. We will also discuss the facts of your case and explain the personal injury laws, as they might apply to your case, and highlight areas to be more carefully explored following the consultation.
When my personal injury case is pending, who pays the out-of-pocket expenses? (Personal Injury Lawyer Fresno)
Generally, we advance the money for expenses incurred during our representation while a case is pending. In a successful case, the out-of-pocket expenses are your responsibility. If and when your case reaches a successful conclusion, the money our firm has spent is repaid out of your recovery.
Will you win my case? (Personal Injury Lawyer Fresno)
Our clients entrust us with all types of cases that are extremely important to each of them and depend on our knowledge and experience to handle their personal injury and accident cases in a professional and thorough manner. Our office is confident, aggressive, and successful and we do our very best to represent our clients. However, no law firm can make guarantees on any claim or lawsuit and it would be highly unethical to do so.
Should I settle my case or go to court and possibly a jury trial? (Personal Injury Lawyer Fresno)
Accepting a settlement offer can be a difficult decision at times. However, we understand that you are relying on our legal expertise, and, therefore, we always present you with the pros and cons of settling your case either before filing a lawsuit or before proceeding to trial. We can provide you with our professional opinion regarding whether or not it is in your best interest to accept or reject a settlement offer; however, the final decision is certainly always yours.
