5 Things your Idaho Accident Attorney
Should do for You
We want to do everything we can to help you with your case. In order to do this, we must learn more about you and the details of your accident and injuries. We do this through a face-to-face consultation with you where we have a conversation and ask you questions based on the type of accident you were in and the extent of your injuries. Best of all, this is completely FREE for you. We stand by our No Fee Guarantee—you won’t pay a penny unless we win your case.
Can’t make it? Then we will come to you.
We understand that your accident may have given you certain physical limitations that keep you from traveling. If you are in a position where you cannot come to our office for a consultation, we will come to you. We make hospital visits and can visit you at home. We want you to be as comfortable as possible so you can focus on healing. If it would be more convenient for you, we can also conduct consultations over the phone.
Contingency Fee Agreement
Our lawyers’ fees are 1/3 of your total settlement. This means that if we settle your case for $33,000, then the lawyers’ fees will be $11,000. As we state in our ‘No Fee Guarantee,’ we will never charge you for our services unless we win your case. In the event that your case cannot be settled directly with the insurance adjuster and we have to take your case to the arbitration, mediation or trial stage, our lawyers’ fees will be 40%. However, less than 2% of all cases go that far, and we handle things differently than other law firms. Other firms will file a lawsuit and raise their fees to 40% right away, then settle the case shortly after. Even though they didn’t take the case all the way through the court proceedings, they keep their fees at 40%. We don’t do this. Our fees only increase to 40% if the case goes all the way to an arbitration, mediation or jury trial. Again, less than 2% of all cases go this far.
Our ‘No Fee Guarantee’
Our ‘No Fee Guarantee’ is simple and we stand by it. We promise that we will not charge you for any of our services unless we are successful in winning your case. All of our fees will come directly from the settlement, so you never pay anything out-of-pocket.
The Insurance Research Council reported that personal injury victims receive compensation 3.5 times larger when they hire a lawyer versus when they attempt to handle their cases themselves. So, it makes sense to hire a lawyer. Even after paying 1/3 in attorneys’ fees, you will recover more than if you were to handle your case on your own.
No Upfront Costs
The startup costs for your case are not monumental, but we understand that all the dollars count after an accident. We don’t want to cause you any worries or create unnecessary barriers to getting a fair settlement for your injuries. We will cover the initial costs to begin your case, including gathering evidence and obtaining police reports and medical records. We will not charge you for these costs until after you have received your settlement payment. This means you can get started with us at no cost, saving you around $250 right from the beginning.
