FAQs and General Information
How much will I pay my lawyer for fees?
The Preszler Law Firm’s fees are based on a percentage of the overall recovery. The fee charged is on a contingency fee basis. In other words, you will pay no fees unless we recover money for you.
How long will it take to settle my case?
This answer depends on the complexity of your case and the severity of your injuries. For most motor vehicle and slip and fall accidents, it takes between 1-3 years in order to achieve a fair resolution. Generally, we wait until you have reached your maximum medical recovery. It is our obligation to you and your family to ensure that we fully appreciate the extent and severity of your injuries. We must also know the effect your injuries have on your future and your ability to work or function. For a wrongful dismissal claim, it usually takes between 6 months to a year and a half to resolve.
How long do I have to sue?
The answer to this question depends on when your accident or dismissal occurred. Call our firm immediately to find out how long you have to sue. The call is completely free.
Do I have a strong case?
This is often the first question a client asks. The difficulty in answering this question is that the answer depends on the specific facts of your case. The strength of your case is largely dependent on your evidence and other written documentation. Please call our firm to discuss your case with one of our lawyers. The call is completely free.
How much will I get?
We may be able to give you a range after we become familiar with your case but predicting a specific amount is almost impossible. If your case is going to be settled without a trial, at some point we will recommend a figure that you can accept in settlement. The decision whether to accept, is your decision and yours alone.
Do you represent Insurance Companies?
No, we do not act for insurance companies as we are completely dedicated to representing victims of serious personal injury.
Will the Insurance Company continue to pay medical bills after we settle the case?
Any future medical costs must be included in the settlement with the insurance company. Once you have reached a settlement and the money has been paid and you have signed a release, you will receive no more payments.
Will I actually speak to a lawyer?
Our firm prides itself for ensuring that our clients speak to a lawyer either immediately or soon thereafter.
