RESULTS ARE DIFFERENT IN EACH CASE

** Tender of the policy limits are not guaranteed in any individual case as results obtained will vary depending on the facts and severity of of injuries in each case.  Types of injuries are reflected for example purposes only and does not indicate a guarantee of results.  Every case will have different results-no two cases are alike.

** While we strive to obtain policy limits in each case, there is no guarantee of results in any case.  Insurance companies and/or jurors evaluate each case differently and often take into consideration many factors, including:

(1) facts of each case; (2) liability factors; (3) nature, extent and severity of injuries; (4) pain and suffering; (5) mental anguish (i.e. anxiety,  loss of sleep, stress); (6) medical expenses; (7) disfigurement, if any; (8) permanent or partial disability; (9) loss of consortium (i.e. loss of love and affection); (10) lost wages; (11) severity of property damage; (12) Any other factors affecting damages in each case.

EXPLANATIONS OF ATTORNEY FEES AND EXPENSES

Standard contingent legal fees charged by most reputable firms are 40% for cases involving litigation and one third (33.33 %) for non-litigation cases

** Contingent fees (In non-litigation cases) contingent fees equal 1/3 of the total recovery

**Contingent fees (Litigation) Fees are calculated at 40% of the total recovery

**Expenses – In each case expenses incurred are deducted from the clients share of recovery.

**Policy Limits – In 2010 the minimum policy limits were $25,000.00.  In 2011 the policy limits increased to a minimum of $30,000.00.    Commercial policies are usually greater than individual limits, but will vary from case to case.  Tractor/Trailers are required to have a minimum policy of $1,000,000.00.
