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.

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.
