Frequently Asked Questions
A: We do not charge you upfront fees. We also advance all costs on your case so you don’t have to worry about out-of-pockets expenses while your case is pending. We work on a contingency basis, which means we get paid and recover costs advanced only when we obtain a settlement, judgment or award on your behalf.
Q: What if I don’t have a doctor or can’t afford one?
A: It is always best to treat with your own doctors. However, if you cannot afford to see a doctor, or don’t have one, we will help you find reputable doctors in your community who can provide you excellent care at no cost while your case is pending.
Q: What is my case worth?
A: Attorneys cannot guarantee you a certain result or outcome. Each case is different and depends on a variety of factors that develop over the course of your case. We will work hard to obtain the best result for your case.
Q: How long will it take to resolve my case?
A: While each case is different, on average, a personal injury case will take anywhere from 8 to 12 months to resolve without filing a lawsuit. Should a lawsuit be necessary, your case can take an additional 18 to 24 months to get to trial.
Q: What if I need financial assistance while my case is pending?
A: Whether you are injured and cannot work, or have been wrongfully terminated from your job, you still have bills to pay and other responsibilities. If you are in need of financial assistance during your case, we can find lenders that can assist you in your time of need. We will be happy to discuss your options and determine whether a cash advance/loan is right for you.
Q: Can I handle my case on my own or do I need an attorney?
If you have been injured or subjected to workplace violations, you need a skilled and knowledgeable attorney to handle your case. Personal injury and employment laws are complex, requiring an experienced professional to analyze every factor. At Aghaeian Law, we have years of experience handling these types of cases, and addressing various issues that may come up.
Q: Should I accept a defendant’s or insurance company’s settlement?
Always remember that a defendant or insurance company only has their best interest in mind. While it is tempting to accept the first offer, it is not wise. In-depth understanding of the law and excellent negotiation skills are key to obtaining top notch results. By hiring our firm, we will work hard to get you the best possible offer, judgment or award.
