Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Lawsuits

    All too often, even though our clients are the ones injured and deserving of compensation for their injuries, the thought of beginning a lawsuit is terrifying to them. That is why we’ve put together the following FAQ’s addressing their concerns. If you’ve been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, the last thing you need is additional stress caused merely by the thought of a lawsuit.

    Will I have to go to Court?

    While nearly all cases are settled out of court and before a trial begins, some are settled after the start of the trial but before its conclusion. Sometimes, if we feel that the settlement offered is unfair to you, we will try your case, We will hold your hand every step of the way. The successful results we have achieved with past personal injury cases often give our clients the confidence they need to retain our firm.Our track record proves that we fight hard to get you results, whether your case is resolved before, during or after trial.

    Why do you so frequently win favorable settlements?

    Because we always deal from a position of strength, never from a position of weakness. We’re always prepared to go to trial. Defendants know about our years of experience and, sooner or later, understand how well prepared we are. There is no guarantee, of course, but at just the right point in the process, a favorable settlement becomes more likely.

    Why can’t my other lawyers handle my case?

    The practice of law has become very specialized and complex. The law is constantly changing, so it is important to choose an attorney who focuses on the specific area of law you need. Our firm focuses entirely on personal injury law; that’s why we’re successful. The Noll Law Firm devotes our entire practice to recovering damages for people who are harmed because of someone else’s negligence. Other attorneys practicing family law or estate law, for example, focus entirely on those areas. Additionally, other lawyers know our reputation and our record of success. They have the confidence that we will serve you well, and often look to us to handle their personal injury cases.

    Will I have to take the witness stand? Will the other lawyer attack me and try to break me down in cross examination?

    Understand, you are the victim in this case, and we will represent you. The process of winning compensation for what has been done to you should not be painful, and, for the vast majority of plaintiffs, it is not. Courtroom scenes on television are not real life. They are exaggerated for dramatic effect. Even actual televised trials are most often selected because they are sensational. In reality, there is a plaintiff, a defendant, a judge and usually a jury in the courtroom. If the case is tried, the judge and jury are sworn to do what is right. Jurors are people like you, and they do not like lawyers abusing witnesses.

    Can I afford your services?

    You certainly can. We work on a contingency basis. That means you pay no legal fees unless you win an award, either through settlement or trial. We make the full investment of money and time to win justice for you. If we succeed on your behalf, we are paid a percentage of the award, and that sum is regulated by Court rule. We are also reimbursed for our expenses. What is most important is this: we have never lost a case for lack of money or professional time and we never will.

    Suppose I’ve been referred by another lawyer or law firm. Does that mean my case is going to cost me more money?

    You pay the same contingency fee if we win your case, regardless of whether you were referred to us from another lawyer or if you came directly to us. There are cases where both law firms will share the contingency fee, but our clients are not charged an additional fee for that.
