The Personal Injury Lawyer Process

The Personal Injury Lawyer Process

Most people never  think about a personal injury lawyer until they need to. After a car accident, slip & fall, or other injury, you should be focused on recovery – not stressing over the lingo and the law.

This step-by-step guide to the personal injury law process lets you know what to expect and takes some of the weight off of your shoulders.

Step 1 - Get Informed

Most people want some basics about the law before speaking to a lawyer. No problem! Check out our blog and free resources page for education and information.

Step 2 - Speak to a Specialized Personal Injury Lawyer

Ready to talk? Great! Call or email, we’ll connect with you the same day. There is no risk, no fee, and no downside to speaking with us.

Step 3 - Get Your Free Case Review

Give us the opportunity to provide you with a free case review. Find out what our professional opinion is and where we think you should set your expectations.

Step 4 - Ask Questions

Like what we have to say? Let’s talk about how we work. Almost all of our work is done on a contingency fee basis. This means you do not pay legal fees unless you win your case.

Step 5 - Make the Decision to Hire a Lawyer

When you’re ready to hire us, we will send you a work agreement. We’ll make sure we start off on the right foot by answering any questions you have.

Step 6 - We Get To Work

Once we have an agreement in place, our work begins. We’ll order your medical information, and assemble other documents as part of our case building process.

Step 7 - Medical Consultations

We will provide a summary of your medical information to a doctor for another perspective on your diagnoses and prognoses. We then review your file at a case conference to discuss the results.

Step 8 - You Approve The Plan

Once the review of your medical file has been completed, our legal team will draft a proposal for your review. Negotiation will begin. We’re in your corner every step of the way.

Step 9 - Settlement Negotiations

We will review all offers of settlement with you as they occur. We will discuss with you how each offer aligns with your goals, expectations and recovery plan.

Step 10 - You Win Fair Compensation

When your case is settled, we will ensure that funds are provided to you quickly. Our legal fee only applies if you win.
