Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I hire a personal injury attorney?
Since the average person does not have an adequate grasp of the law, they will get cheated by insurance companies. This may lead to you to be left bearing the majority of the expenses from a car accident that was not actually your fault. Aggressive legal representation is crucial in order to receive sufficient compensation for your claim. If you have been injured in a car accident, we encourage you to contact us so you can be compensated for your injuries. Call us at (818) 477-0773 to schedule a free consultation.
How much do I have to pay to hire an attorney?
NOTHING! You hire us on a contingency basis, meaning that we don’t charge you anything.
- If for any reason we don’t recover any money, we still don’t charge you anything.
- If your case settles, we take a percentage of the settlement for our fees and costs.
What if I have already taken steps independently?
Often times, many of our new clients have begun the claims process themselves. They often find it stressful and burdensome, or cannot afford to pay out of pocket for the medical treatment. For these reasons, they seek our assistance. Once we retain a client, we begin gathering the requisite information and immediately inform the insurance companies to direct all communication to our office. It is our goal to alleviate as much stress we can from our clients so they can concentrate on getting healthy again.
The insurance company said I don't need an attorney, is that true?
It’s important to realize that your interests and the interests of your insurance company are not the same. While its illegal for a non-attorney to provide legal advice, usually it is not very sound. You should always seek an opinion from a personal injury lawyer to get an unbiased legal opinion regarding your case and your rights. At State Law Firm we provide free consultations to injured persons.
Is my case big enough for a lawyer to handle?
At State Law Firm , we handle small, medium, and large cases. Our injury cases usually range from soft tissue injuries to catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases. We are happy to review any case for free as we provide risk-free consultations.
Do I have to pay for my initial meeting with the attorney?
No! State Law Firm never charges for client consultations. If you feel you have a potential claim, please call our office at (818) 477-0773.
I don’t wanna go to court, can you still help me?
Of course, most of our clients want to avoid going to court. At State Law Firm, we do our best to come to a settlement before filing a lawsuit.
