Do I have to pay a consultation fee?
No, we do not charge a consultation fee for personal injury matters. You may make an appointment for a free consultation.
When do I pay the legal fees?
You pay after the matter is settled or resolved in your favor. We will take an agreed percentage from the monies you receive at the completion of the matter. This is known as a contingency fee. The law firm gets paid when you get paid by the negligent party or the insurance company acting on behalf of the negligent party.
If I am injured in a motor vehicle accident what should I do:
If you are physically able, you should note the following information;
name of the driver (s) of the motor vehicle
name of the owner (s) of the motor vehicle
vehicle registration number
insurance company and policy number.
date and time of the accident
The place and exact location of the motor vehicle accident, and if possible, the
name and rank of the Police at the scene of the accident.
Get medical attention immediately
Report the accident to the police and to the insurance company.
Keep all your receipts
Give all information, documents, and receipts to your Lawyer.
How will my lawyer know how much to claim on my behalf?
Typically, the amount depends on some of the following;
Cost of medical expenses
Cost of medical reports and police reports
Other out of pocket expenses incurred as a result of the motor vehicle accident
The nature and gravity of the injuries for example, whether there is any permanent disability, impairment, or disfiguring.
Will I have to go to court
If there is a successful negotiation leading to the settlement, the matter will NOT proceed to trial. If there is no settlement offer; the matter will be taken to trial. Once the matter is filed in court, you will be expected to attend all court hearings.
How long will this take?
This depends on several factors, including:
How quickly the insurance company accepts liability of the claim, invites counsel to submit details of the claim, and make a reasonable offer to settle the claim.
It also depends on the extent of the injuries as it is often more prudent to make a claim at the end of medical treatment. The physician will be better able to speak to permanent disability and give a comprehensive medical report after treatment is completed.
Since your attorney gets paid at the end of the matter, you may take comfort in the fact that the law firm will act quickly and efficiently so that they can be paid for legal services provided.
