Frequently Asked Questions about Personal Injury
What is personal injury?
Personal injury describes situations where a person is injured by someone else’s fault. This occurs in car accidents, big truck accidents, on-the-job injuries, pedestrian accidents, shootings and wrongful death cases, dog bites, and several other situations where people are injured at the fault of other people, businesses, or government agencies.
How do I know when I have a personal injury case?
You know you have a case when you are injured due to the fault of another person or company. If you’re hurt in an accident involving a big truck or motor vehicle and it wasn’t your fault – odds are you have a case. If you’re in a business and you’re injured, that’s a good sign that your injury could be someone else’s fault.

If I can’t afford an attorney, how do get representation?
Don’t worry. We understand that you’ve already gone through enough. We will work for you and with you. It’s simple – you pay nothing, unless you win!
A contingency fee contract is an agreement between the you and your attorney where the attorney agrees to advance the all of your costs of the case until the case is over – either by a settlement from the insurance company for the person or company that caused your injury or from an amount awarded by a jury. When we represent you, we use contingency fee agreements so that you and your family don’t have to pay for the costs until they’ve received a good outcome to end their case. So that means you have nothing to lose and have everything to gain.
How soon should I call an attorney?
Often, people do not feel at their worst until days after the incident that caused their injury. Right after a car accident or injury at a business, people often “shake it off” or keep it moving to get back to work or taking care of their families. But people soon realize after their event-causing injury that they need medical assistance to be able to continue living their life normally and providing for their families.
