We never back down, unlike other firms that too easily settle, not getting their client the full amount of damages possible. We will take the time to respond to all of your questions.

Here are a few common ones that people usually have when beginning their case.

How Long Do Personal Injury Cases Take To Resolve?

It is difficult to say. But know that having a large team of lawyers at Frankovitch, Anetakis, Simon, Decapio & Pearl, LLP, behind you will see that your case is handled efficiently.

When Does The Firm Get Paid?

Personal injury cases use a contingency fee system. You will not pay any attorney fees until we get monetary damages for you.

How Much Will I Receive If I Win?

It depends on the particular circumstances of your case, your injuries and the party at fault’s ability to pay. But contacting our firm is a good place to start. The lawyers at Frankovitch, Anetakis, Simon, Decapio & Pearl, LLP, draw on the experience of three generations and 50 years of practice.

I’m Getting Bills From The Doctor’s Office. Do I Pay Them?

Even though the other driver may have caused your accident, the doctors treated you, so you are responsible for paying these bills. You should retain copies of your medical records, your doctor’s notes and all the bills you have paid. Providing this information when you file your claim shows that you followed your doctor’s orders and may affect the amount that you are entitled to receive.

The Other Driver’s Insurance Company Keeps Calling Me. Should I Talk To Them?

You should not talk to the at-fault driver’s insurance company. It is likely that your call with an insurance employee will be recorded and used to undermine your claim. Insurance claims adjusters use tactics to deceive victims and encourage victims to make statements that directly affect the settlement amount. Our attorneys are familiar with these tricks. When you hire us, we will respond to any insurance-related questions and protect your claim.
