How much will it cost to hire the Fine Law Firm?
Some lawyers work on an hourly rate; others, including Fine Law Firm, do not charge on an hourly basis in accident cases. Instead, we charge a contingent fee. Although costs of litigation are extra, it costs nothing up front to hire the law firm and we are compensated only if we are successful in recovering for you. Regardless of the time we put into a case, if we do not recover for you, you will not have to pay us attorney’s fees. In addition, unlike many other firms, the Fine Law Firm does not charge the client for long distance calls, photocopying, and postage. In select cases, we will reduce our fee to a one-fourth fee as opposed to a one-third fee.
What is my case worth?
There is no standard value for what an injury is worth. Rather each case is unique and must be valued individually. Factors that affect the value of a case include the nature and extent of the injuries, the length of treatment and recovery time, lost wages, whether there is a permanent impairment, whether there is comparative fault, and whether punitive damages are appropriate.
Will you give me a preliminary evaluation before you are retained?
At no charge, we will be glad to give you a preliminary evaluation regarding liability and damages. However, such an evaluation is somewhat limited in that as the case develops, we will become more aware of additional facts.
How long will it take to resolve my case?
The answer to this question depends greatly on the injuries and amount of treatment necessary for you to heal. In exchange for settling with an insurance company a plaintiff must sign a release or paper that states they will no longer attempt to recover money from the insurance company or defendant. It is important to be certain of your injuries and necessary treatment before signing the release. Resolving a case prematurely often results in a smaller recovery.
