Can’t I just handle this on my own? Do I really need an attorney?
After an accident or injury, your first reaction may be to settle the matter so that you can move on. As a result, you may be tempted to take care of all the issues, including legal ones, without getting an attorney. To ensure that you receive the right advice, it is imperative that you first meet with an experienced personal injury lawyer to assess your injury and evaluate your case. At The Law Office of Michelle Gershen, there is no charge for an initial consultation and case evaluation.
Do I have a legal case?
When you’re injured, you need to determine if the injury you sustained means you have a legal case. Not all injuries do. Without the benefit of legal expertise, it is nearly impossible to comb through the details and determine who might be at fault, as well as what your options are. By working with The Law Office of Michelle Gershen, we will immediately put our personal injury experience to work for you. We will help you determine if you have a case, as well as the best way to proceed.
What is my case worth?
It is almost impossible to forecast or predict the value of any case without knowing what type of injury you sustained and the details surrounding it. How did it happen? When and where did it happened? Who was involved? The law allows you to recover damages for medical bills, future medical and rehabilitation costs, therapy, lost past wages, lost future income, pain and suffering and more. At The Law Office of Michelle Gershen, we will explore and pursue all possible losses and legal recovery for which you are entitled under the law.
How much does a lawyer cost?
At The Law Office of Michelle Gershen, your initial consultation and case evaluation is absolutely free. We provide you with a complimentary intake and case evaluation, and then determine fee structure based on your case. At The Law Office of Michelle Gershen we are committed to affordable, high quality legal representation.
Should I accept the insurance company settlement?
Insurance companies are primarily concerned with resolving cases and saving money. If they cannot resolve a case in its entirety, then their goal is to reduce the amount of your settlement. Even the nicest and most professional insurance adjuster or representative is focused on paying you as little as possible.
Should I give a statement to the insurance company?
When an injury, incident or accident occurs, insurance company representatives usually ask you to provide a recorded statement with an insurance adjuster. We recommend that you never provide a recorded, verbal or written statement without first talking to an attorney.
