Maybe. Some accident and injury cases do not require a lawyer. However, if you attempt to negotiate directly with an insurance company, then you will probably lack the experience and leverage required to get a reasonable settlement. In other words, you may leave money on the table. Stanley Law Firm provides a free and no-pressure consultation for an assessment of whether you need our firm or not.
Nothing. This is what we call a “no-brainer.” We only work on a contingency fee basis, meaning that if we do not win, then you owe us nothing. People who are in accidents or injured usually cannot afford to pay an attorney by the hour. Per our written Contingency Fee Agreement, you are NOT responsible for attorney’s fees or any costs if we do not recover money for you. As we said, hiring us is a “no-brainer.”
It depends. Based on our work on hundreds of accident and injury cases, we find that people who do not use our firm are probably leaving money on the table. Insurance companies are very good at quickly settling cases with injured people so that an evaluation of the case cannot be done. However, if you want to avoid leaving money on the table and get the most from your case, you need our attorneys to determine the at-fault driver’s negligence, the amount of available insurance, the cost of medical bills, and several other factors.
Probably not. Most of our clients want to avoid going to court and most of the time court is not the best route for them. Although filing suit may be necessary, we do our best to come to a reasonable settlement before filing a lawsuit.
First, immediately seek medical treatment for your injuries. This is very important for your health, but it also helps your case.
Second, do not give a recorded statement and do not sign any documents especially any release documents. Take photographs and preserve any evidence that you think will help your case.
Third, contact Stanley Law Firm before speaking with any insurance companies. Our firm will take over all communication with the insurance companies so that you can focus on recovering from your injuries.
Absolutely. According to the law, our discussions with you and the information you share with our firm are protected by the attorney-client privilege and will always remain confidential.
