Q: Do I really need to hire a
personal injury lawyer?
A: After years of
navigating the red tape of local government, medical providers, and insurance
companies, we say YES! The attorneys at Leon Law really go above and beyond for
our clients. We help our clients navigate through a range of issues stemming
from their personal injury claim, medical payments, property damage, the
insurance company, and liability determinations. It is best to have an advocate
on your side when dealing with any third party. Remember, insurance company’s
goal is pay as little as possible to settle your case.
Q: How much does it cost to hire
A: Most car accident
cases are handled on a contingency or “no-win-no pay” basis. This means is we
do not win or settle the case on your behalf, we do not charge a fee. Give us a
call today to discuss your specific situation and we will answer any question
Q: How long does the whole injury
litigation process take?
there is no easy answer to this. It really depends on the complexity of the
case. We pride ourselves in providing our clients with the highest level of
communication in the industry. Our clients consistently complement us on how we
keep them informed on every step in the process. Setting the right expectations
is key to any successful case.
Q: What is my claim worth?
A: I wish we could
tell you right off the bat but the reality is, there are too many factors to
tell you that right away. When you call us, we will walk you through the
process and provide you with as much information as possible, but giving you a
dollar amount is not possible most of the time. If you call an attorney and
they tell you an amount over the phone, you should probably hang up. We fight
for every dollar possible in a case. From lost wages, medical payments, to pain
and suffering… We advocate for our clients, not the insurance companies.
Q: Should I seek medical
attention right away?
A: We recommend you
seek medical attention as soon as possible. Even a minor fender bender can
result in injury. We don’t say this because it adds additional value to your
case, we say this because we truly care about making sure our clients are ok!
Sometimes clients experience pain or discomforts days after an accident and
then go to the doctor. Insurance companies are often quick to point the finger
and state that other factors may be contributing to your injury now and try to
get out of paying for your claim… Do yourself a favor and seek medical care as
soon as possible after a car accident.
Q: What do I say to the insurance
A: Our advice, don’t say anything in the
immediate aftermath. While you’ll need to contact your insurance company soon
after an automobile accident, you don’t have to call them immediately.
