Thanks for contacting me. I received your information, and wanted you to know what you can expect to happen.

What Happens Next?
I will review the information you sent me to see if you might have a case. I will get back to you within a day or two at the most to let you know whether I think you have a case.

What happens if you think I have a case?
If you have a case, I will send you a contract to sign and some medical authorization forms to sign. The contract is what formally hires me. To be clear, submitting a form does not hire me and I am not your lawyer until you sign a contract that I send you. The medical records authorizations will allow me to order the necessary medical records to begin to prove your case.

What happens if you don’t think I have a case?
If I don’t think you have a case, I strongly advise you to talk to at least one other lawyer. I might be wrong, after all, and I’d hate for you to lose out. If you don’t know of any other lawyers, the State Bar Association for every state offers a free attorney referral service.

How long will my case take?
The wheels of justice turn, but they turn slowly. Except in extremely unusual circumstances, it will take months or years before your case is resolved. I’ll discuss that in more detail if and when you hire me by signing a contract.

How much is my case worth?
That depends on many, many factors. I can’t even begin to estimate that until I’ve seen a copy of your medical records and your medical bills. The more seriously you are injured, the more your case is worth.

And thanks again!
I know that looking for a personal injury attorney is stressful and tiring. I thank you for contacting me, and I promise I’ll do the best I can to help you.
