The Case Does Not Being with a Payment to Us
One of the most important things we want clients to understand is that we take cases on a contingency basis. This means that we do not require any payment upfront. If you hire us, then we will take care of expenses until the time of your settlement or jury award. Our payment is a percentage of the compensation we recover for you. If we do not win your case then we are not paid.
You Can Expect a Lot from Us
In most cases, we will begin by investigating the case. This may involve getting police reports, statements from witnesses, medical records, dashcam footage, and similar evidence. We will also take to experts who can help us better prove your case.
It is important for us to keep our clients informed at every step and that is what we do. While we are ready to take on your case, it is still that – your case. You will have input at every step and we will always be honest about the realistic timeframe in which you can expect to receive a settlement or jury award. We will also give you honest feedback on the likelihood that we can win your case and a fair estimate of the financial compensation you are likely to get.
When you choose Law Offices of Fernando D. Vargas as your personal injury attorney, you can be sure that we will return your calls and stay in communication with you. If there is a setback or delay, we will tell you that. We will keep all conversations confidential and make sure that we give you all the information you need to make the right decisions for your own case.
You Can Take These Steps to Help Your Own Case
Of course, there are a few things you can do that will help us win your case. First, stay up to date with all correspondence from us. If we ask for information and documentation, get it as quickly as you can and communicate with us about any delays.
Go to the doctor and follow their instructions. Go to all follow-up visits. Missing even one doctors appointment or physical therapy session could be used against you in an effort to show you are not as injured as you say you are. Finally, do not share any information about your case with anyone but your attorney. Contact Law Offices of Fernando D. Vargas at 909-982-0707 now to request your free consultation.
