If I slip and fall, is the property owner responsible?

Being a property owner comes with certain responsibilities and obligations. Property owners are supposed to maintain a level of safety for everyone who enters their premises. When it comes to being responsible in a court of law, it must be proven that the property owner was negligent in keeping you safe.

Can I file a case if I didn't seek medical attention immediately?

This is a very common question. Many people do not feel pain from an accident immediately. Pain could develop in the hours, and even days, following an accident. It is never too late to seek medical treatment. However, the sooner that you seek necessary medical treatment the better off you are for several reasons. Medical treatment will help in diagnosing injuries and provide relief of pain. Also, it is easier to prove that the injury was caused by the accident, if you receive treatment close to the time of the accident.

What is expected of me as a client of your firm?

We want you to trust that we are here to help you during the difficult times that arise when being faced with a lawsuit. We expect for you to come to us with any questions or concerns that you may have. We want you to be honest and responsive with us so that we can best prepare you for any possible depositions.

How will I be kept informed of my case?

We understand the importance of communication and transparency between attorney and client. Although we would like to talk to you weekly by telephone, that would be neither practical nor productive. Legal matters have a way of stretching out over long periods of time. To you, it may often seem like ages have gone by without activity, however, in fact, much behind-the-scenes work is being completed so that on the day your matter is ready, nothing will be overlooked. In order to keep the cost of legal services down while maximizing communications, we will strive to keep you informed when anything important happens and to respond to your questions in a reasonable time. In addition, we will inform you when your presence is required, either in our office or in court.

Is it necessary to hire an attorney to obtain the compensation I deserve?

Many people believe that they can maximize their recovery by filing claims on their own behalves. More often than not, this is a dubious idea. Often, cases that appear simple on the surface are surprisingly complicated, bringing into play statutes and laws with which most people are unfamiliar. Only attorneys with experience in complex litigation are truly qualified to handle serious injury claims.

When do I need a lawyer?

Many people believe they need an attorney’s services only to solve a problem or to get out of a difficult situation. Often‚ the best time to see an attorney is not when you are in legal trouble but before that trouble occurs. Preventive law is one of the most valuable services that a lawyer can perform. By eliminating potential problems, preventive law can save you time‚ money‚ and needless worry.
