When should I call an injury lawyer?
Call us right now. Many innocent people make serious mistakes during the early stages of a personal injury claim that can be impossible to undo later. Insurance companies know that! That’s why it’s so important to get an experienced lawyer on your side right away.

How long will the litigation take?
The length of time it takes to successfully conclude your case depends on your health. We cannot accurately assess your damages until you are either better or we know you will be left with lasting effects. A permanent disability is not usually stable for 18 to 24 months post injury. It is only at that point that we can send you for assessment with the appropriate experts to allow us to understand how your ongoing problems are going to affect your career, family and personal life. We need an accurate picture of all the effects your accident has caused and how it impacts your life before we can resolve your claim. Remember, you only have one chance to settle!
Do all cases go to trial?
As trial lawyers, we love to take cases to trial; however, the vast majority settle prior to actually getting to the Courthouse.
Is my personal information going to be part of the process?
Your medical and other history often forms part of your claim. That’s why it’s so important to choose a lawyer you can easily talk to and feel comfortable with.
What will I do for income before my case settles?
We will help you access ongoing, no-fault benefits from your own insurance company.
Who pays for disbursements?
We initially pay for disbursements. You pay us back when your case is resolved.
