Every claim is different. Without evaluating your claim, it is impossible to provide a clear answer. However, the value of your claim will depend on many factors, such as the severity of your injuries, the duration of recovery, past and future medical expenses, past and future wage loss, the general impact that the injury has had on your life, how much pain you are in, and many other factors. At Matzus Law, we can review the details of your claim and provide you with a more accurate value.
Depending on the specifics of your claim, you may be able to recover compensation for medical costs, future surgeries and medical care, past and future lost wages and lost earning capacity, pain and suffering, and other related damages.
At Matzus Law, we only get paid if we get a recovery for you. Our fee is “contingent" on obtaining a settlement or verdict in your case, hence it’s commonly referred to as a “contingency fee”. In other words, we work for free throughout the duration of your case and only get paid if we are successful in getting a financial recovery for you.
Unlike many other professionals who get paid regardless of the results they produce, firm founder Attorney Jason Matzus is willing to “put his money where his mouth is” and take the risk of not getting paid unless Matzus Law is successful in winning your case. Many of our clients have just had their lives turned upside down physically, emotionally and financially and may never work again. Even if they could, many simply don’t have the financial resources to pay for top quality legal representation. We understand that and are sensitive to our clients’ circumstances.
By handling cases on a contingency fee basis, we eliminate the financial barrier and hardship injured people would otherwise face if they had to pay an hourly rate for the substantial time involved in pursuing their case. The specific percentage fee depends on the type of case but, if we do not get a verdict or settlement for you, you don’t pay us anything.
You should hire a lawyer as soon as possible after you have been seriously injured by someone’s negligence. A lawyer can investigate what occurred, gather evidence to prove who is at fault, complete relevant insurance claims forms to make sure you get all the medical and wage loss benefits you are entitled to and make sure that your rights are fully protected. At Matzus Law, we pride ourselves on taking care of these issues for our clients so that you can focus on your recovery. Remember, the responsible party has experienced insurance company professionals and lawyers working to protect their rights, you need someone on your side to protect your rights.
It is important to take action as soon as possible after an accident. There is a time limit to file a claim, called the Statute of Limitations. If you fail to file a lawsuit before your time limit expires, you will lose your right to bring a claim. There are no exceptions to this rule. So, it is very important to speak with an attorney at Matzus Law to learn what time limit applies to your claim.
