Philadelphia Personal Injury Lawyers Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Can I try to settle my case myself?
Answer: Certainly, but the insurance companies have one goal, which is to pay you as little money as possible. You have no bargaining power, as you are not a lawyer who can sue them. Also, there are usually multiple insurance policies to collect from, and the insurance companies certainly won't inform you of this fact. Our Philadelphia personal injury lawyers will get you maximum compensation from all eligible insurance policies.
Question: Can I talk with a personal injury lawyer for free?
Answer: All consultations with our Philadelphia personal injury attorneys are completely free.
Question: Is there any fee if my case is not good and I don't win?
Answer: There is absolutely no fee charged by our Philadelphia personal injury lawyers unless money is recovered for you.
Question: What fee is deducted when you do settle the case?
Answer: Our Philadelphia personal injury attorneys only deduct a small 29% fee. The standard fee deducted by those other law firms is 45%. Don't get hurt twice by having another firm deduct a ridiculously huge fee.
Question: If I have already signed up with a lawyer charging an astronomical fee, can I switch lawyers?
Answer: You may switch lawyers at any time, despite any documents you may have signed with your lawyer. We will simply reimburse your lawyer for any costs incurred from our 29% fee, thus, you lose no money to switch lawyers, and you obtain a larger payout percentage, which usually amounts to tens of thousands of dollars more which goes into your pocket.
Question: Is my settlement tax free?
Answer: Not necessarily, however, our knowledgeable Philadelphia personal injury lawyers will structure the settlement so that it is 100 percentage tax free.
Question: Is it necessary to come into your office to meet with you if I live outside of Philadelphia?
Answer: No, cases are easily handled over the phone. Our personal injury lawyers take cases throughout the state of Pennsylvania, and overnight you your settlement check when it comes in.
Question: How long will it take to get my money?
Answer: With simple accident cases, we usually get you your money in a few weeks, and we can overnight you your settlement check. With medical malpractice cases and more complex cases it may take several months or longer, however, our lawyers expedite all cases.
Question: Will my case have to go to trial?
Answer: The majority of cases are settled without the need to go to trial. Our Philadelphia personal injury attorneys hound the insurance companies for a large settlement for you.
Question: What is the difference between full tort and limited tort in Pennsylvania?
Answer: When you take the limited tort option, it generally prevents you from getting money for your pain and suffering, versus full tort in which you can recover money for your pain and suffering. However, there are many exceptions to this rule, and the Philadelphia personal injury attorneys at the Lassen Law Firm very frequently can get you money even if you don't have the full tort provision.
Question: What is uninsured motorist coverage in Pennsylvania?
Answer: Uninsured motorist coverage is insurance you may elect to carry on your own insurance policy which pays for your injuries if the other driver has no insurance.
Question: What is underinsured motorist coverage in Pennsylvania?
Answer: Underinsured motorist coverage is insurance you may elect to carry on your own insurance policy which pays for your injuries in the event that the other driver does not have large enough insurance coverage amounts.
