Many personal injury law firms, including ours, charge based on a contingency fee. This is where the legal fee is taken as a percentage of the total payout following the verdict or settlement. What this means is that you won’t pay a thing until you win your case.
When there is a very simple case, and small amounts are involved, you might not require assistance from a pedestrian injury lawyer. But most cases are not simple at all, so it often makes sense to hire a lawyer instead.
Essentially, if you have been injured and it was the fault of someone else, you may well have a case. However, it is impossible to be sure until we know the full details. That’s why you should consult with a lawyer first.
If you have been injured at work, this usually involves a workers compensation case rather than a personal injury case. Fortunately, our team has a lot of experience winning these types of cases throughout the state of Nevada.
The amount of time from hiring your attorney to receiving your check varies based on the specifics of your case. However, if a case is more complex and involves larger settlements due to more serious injuries, it usually takes longer to settle.
When you hire a pedestrian accident attorney to represent your case, you may get a settlement without going to court. However, there is a chance you may have to go to court. If you do, you can always expect us to fight tooth and nail for you the whole way.
Not with us. When you hire The Ruiz Law Firm, we work on a contingency basis, which means we won’t charge you anything until your case is won. It really is as simple as that, so you can hire us in full confidence.
The amount of time you have to file a case for personal injury in Nevada is two years. That’s why it’s important to hire an attorney and file your case as soon as possible.
There is no way to say how much a specific case is worth. But when you hire an experienced attorney, we can usually estimate the amount you might collect based on various factors like maximum payouts.
Just because you are not feeling hurt, this does not mean you don’t have a case. Following an accident, you may not feel the full effects of any injuries until later on due to the adrenaline. It may even take over a week to become aware of how serious your injury is.
