Unsurprisingly, you will get injured at some point in your life. However, when the injury is caused by someone else's negligence or intentionality, you deserve compensation. Drivers, property owners, and establishment managers have a duty of care to keep others safe. When that duty of care is breached and someone is hurt, hiring a personal injury lawyer will help hold those responsible accountable. We want to be your first choice when you have sustained an injury and are searching for a firm to represent you.
We get a lot of questions about how a case works, so let's review the most common.
At Mezrano Law Firm, we work on a contingency basis. A contingency fee schedule means we do not charge you anything unless we win a settlement in or out of court. This fee structure ensures we work hard for your case and that you don't have even more out-of-pocket expenses during a stressful time. We also offer contingency fee schedules for a:
An injury attorney will be an advocate for you and what's best for you. Your lawyer will fight to protect your rights and get you the most compensation possible. It's important to remember that insurance companies only look out for their bottom line, not what's best for you. While they may be friendly and sound helpful, they will do everything possible to pay you the least amount possible. Your personal injury attorney will aggressively fight for your rights and compensation.
Every injury case is different, so it's not wise for us to throw out a random number. Your settlement amount will depend on many factors, such as:
You can rely on your attorney to fight for the highest compensation under the law.
While recovering from your injuries, we start gathering evidence and investigating your case. Once your demand package is put together, we can demand the most from the private party. If you have never worked with a law firm, here is a quick outline of the process we follow with new clients.
After your accident, you will consult with an experienced personal injury attorney. You will explain what injuries you suffered, your medical expenses, and how much time you have missed at work.
After you have hired us, we initiate an investigation of the accident or incident that caused your injury. Your attorney will contact witnesses, medical experts, accident reconstruction experts, and other specialists.
With all the evidence gathered, your lawyer will develop a demand letter that gets delivered to the opposing side. The demand package includes an outline of your damages, which includes:
We will work on a settlement with the opposing party during the mediation stage. Sometimes this phase is quick, but there's a lot of back and forth, so prepare for it to be a few months, if not more.
Most cases are settled before they reach the trial stage, but if negotiations have failed, we will schedule a court date. Your attorney has litigation experience and will take your case to court if that is what is required.
Before the trial, both parties exchange information, which helps each party estimate the strength of the other's case.
In a trial, both sides present their cases, and a jury will evaluate the facts on each side, determine who is at fault, and award damages if appropriate. If dissatisfied with the trial's outcome, you may appeal the case.
