The El Dabe Law Offices work on a contingency fee basis. This means that we do not charge any upfront fees. If we do not win your case, we do not charge anything at all. It’s that simple. By working on a contingency fee basis, we make it possible for victims of injuries to focus on recovering instead of worrying about legal fees.
Your first step after being injured is to get medical treatment. If you delay getting treatment – the opposing insurance company may argue that you’re really not hurt and that this is just an attempt at trying to get “free money.” It’s in the interests of the insurance company to pay you as little as possible, and this is one way for them to do that.
If you’re the victim of a personal injury, then you may be eligible to get compensation. Unfortunately, in order to file a lawsuit to get that compensation, you must file a claim within a certain period of time after the accident. If you don’t, you forfeit your right to file a claim and get that compensation. California has different deadlines when it comes to filing a personal injury lawsuit. The statute of limitations is very strict, and there are no exceptions to it. Many victims often lose their opportunity to receive compensation because they don’t file a lawsuit in time. The statute of limitations is applied to your case from the day you experience your injury. If you’re intending on suing the government, the statute of limitations is typically a much shorter time period...
The top question we often hear is: how long will my case take. Many people wonder about this even after they hire our reliable attorneys. On average, the length of the case depends on a number of variables.
Your attorney’s workload: The more work your attorney has, the harder it is for him to expedite proceedings and other legal tasks associated with your case. Many sole practitioners take longer to handle cases because they don’t have the necessary support staff. Fewer resources mean the attorney is spending his time doing basic tasks instead of focusing on your case. If you choose a bigger firm, they’re more likely to have enough resources to handle your case on a normal timeline.
Your medical treatments: Personal injury cases cannot be settled until medical treatments have concluded – or have entered into long-term care. That means the bulk of the urgent care has been done, and now, depending on your injuries, all that’s left is the long term care and maintenance based on the injuries you have incurred. It’s hard for a personal injury lawyer to settle a case when a client is still receiving treatments. If your medical bills are going to continue to grow, the process may take longer.
Fault: In some cases where liability isn’t clear, your attorney may need to conduct an investigation. When liability is clear and evident, it’s easy to assign blame and collect funds. In some cases, where there is partial fault on both sides, an attorney will need to conduct an investigation into the accident. That means finding witnesses who can support the attorney’s claim that you weren’t at fault. It might also entail reconstructing the accident based on forensic evidence. Typically, the longer this phase takes, the longer your case will take to settle.
Often, many victims decide to take legal action after they are hurt. They wonder if they should hire an attorney or not. The person who injured you is most likely going to have an insurance provider. That company will also have their own lawyers who are going to attempt to squash your case. When you realize this, you’ll understand it behooves you to hire an attorney. It’s crucial you have someone who understands the legal system and who can help you obtain a settlement based on your injuries. Filing a claim is more than just filing forms. You have to make sure you can prove liability and in addition, damages. If there are no damages, the claim has significantly less value. Not only must you show there are damages, you have to prove those damages are from the defendant. That means you have to conduct a very extensive investigation that covers all your bases. Insurance companies know that most injured victims are lacking in knowledge when it comes to the law. Having an attorney on your side means you won’t be bullied or swayed to settle for a minor settlement. It increases your bargaining power and can lead to a much larger settlement.
In some instances, it might be necessary to go to court. When that happens, you have to not only identify witnesses but also litigate the case in court. Though television makes this seem like a relatively straightforward procedure, it can actually be difficult to know all the procedures. At the end of the day, while you can try handling your case on your own, it’s going to get messy real quick.
