This is the first, and admittedly a very important question on most peoples’ minds when they need to hire a lawyer. If you have been injured and need one of our experienced injury attorneys to fight for your rights, it costs you nothing unless we secure a settlement on your behalf. Once we have secured compensation on your behalf, we are paid a percentage of what you receive.
The first step is to take advantage of a free initial consolation, where we can help you understand how Minnesota injury law applies to your situation and your options for moving forward. There are cases where people decide it’s best to not pursue a claim, but are happy that they at least pursued the information. The simple fact is you have nothing to lose by coming in and having a short meeting to learn about your rights. Conversely, you may be giving up thousands of dollars in both cash and help covering any expenses you’ve already incurred by NOT meeting with an attorney.
This is a very good question. In a perfect world, the insurance company would offer you the amount of compensation you truly deserve. However, insurance corporations do not make a profit by paying out fair settlements. They make a profit when they can convince people to settle for much less than their claim is worth. Having an experienced personal injury attorney in your corner guarantees that the insurance companies will take you seriously. My job as your attorney is to get you the best possible settlement. In most cases, clients who have lawyers on their side take home more compensation EVEN AFTER DEDUCTING the attorneys fees. That’s what we mean when we say “we level the playing field”; the game truly is stacked against you when you try to work directly with the insurance companies.
If you choose to hire us, we have a written agreement that will detail exactly what percentage of the total recovery we are paid. We act on your behalf through the entire process, so we settle with the insurance company, deduct our fees and then pay you directly.
If you have been injured, do not accept any payment or sign anything for the insurance company until you have had an independent attorney review your case free of charge.
