What are the next steps when I want to sue?

If you want to sue for a personal injury claim, and together we have determined that your case should be further investigated, our next step will be to review the financial aspects of the investigation again. It is very important that you have sufficient financial information in order to make the decision to move forward with your case. Effectively, you are investing money in order to determine if you have a case. This retainer fee is not refundable in the event the investigation does not support the case.

Retainers create the lawyer-client relationship. This money is used to finance the investigation, which includes:

Obtaining copies of clinical and hospital records
Conducting medical research
Obtaining medical opinions from experts
In some instances, paying for court fees to commence a lawsuit to protect your rights while the investigation continues
Providing an opinion to you about your case

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact us.
