Here are some frequently asked questions about hiring a personal injury attorney in Tarzana:
Q: Do I have a case?
A: Our firm offers a free, no-obligation case review, in which we will take the time to answer your questions and give you an honest appraisal of your circumstances. You will know if you have a legitimate legal case before ever signing on.
Q: What does it cost?
A: When it comes to personal injury cases, we accept them on a contingency basis. This means that you owe us nothing if we don’t recover compensation on your behalf. We only get paid if you do, and you don’t have to pay anything up front. Each case is different, so your costs may vary.
Q: Why do I need an attorney?
A: Many people try to handle their personal injury cases on their own, but often fail. Working with a lawyer allows you to let someone else handle the stress of the situation, and you can rest well knowing a professional will get you a better outcome than you ever could yourself. Plus, your lawyer only gets paid when you do, so it’s a risk-free decision to bring one on board.
Q: How do I handle the insurance companies?
A: Often in personal injury cases, an insurance adjuster will want you to make a formal statement, and they may offer you a financial settlement for your case. We advise you to never give a recorded statement without first consulting with an attorney. It’s also important to know that these insurance settlements are typically the bare minimum, and you are likely entitled to much more.
