Legal FAQs

Why should I hire an attorney to manage my personal injury case?

Pure and simple‚ you’ll get better results. You’ll have a better chance of winning‚ and on receiving the maximum settlement‚ if you have an experienced New Jersey or Pennsylvania personal injury attorney in your corner. One study shows that those who hire a lawyer receive‚ on average‚ 3.5 times more compensation than those who don’t! A personal injury lawyer will also lead you through the unfamiliar legal process‚ help you navigate the often confusing insurance industry‚ and answer any questions you have about your rights or about the law in general.

How much will a personal injury lawyer cost?

One of the greatest misconceptions in the public about personal injury attorneys is that they are very expensive. If you’ve recently been injured in an accident you probably have unexpected‚ additional expenses related to medical bills‚ lost time at work‚ and property damage. The last thing you want to do is strain your budget even further by adding expensive legal fees.

That’s why Console & Hollawell offers a “No Fee Promise”. This means that if we don’t win money for you‚ you don’t owe us a dime.

Who is going to pay up front for all costs and expenses associated with my case?

We recognize that injuries and accidents result in financial burdens‚ and the last thing we want to do is to add to those burdens. As part of our “No Fee Promise”‚ the attorneys at Console & Hollawell will obtain all of the resources and costs necessary to win your case allowing you to get the best legal representation possible. Meaning that in addition to paying no lawyer fees you will not pay any additional fees associated with the case if we do not win.

How do I know if I have a case‚ and if so what is it worth?

We offer free initial consultations as part of our “No Fee Promise.” During this consultation‚ one of our attorneys will carefully review the specifics of your case‚ and will honestly assess whether you have a claim.

There is no hard-and-fast rule about what certain cases are worth‚ because not all cases are created equal. Each case is as unique as the people involved. When it comes to what your case is worth‚ we will use our knowledge and experience to set honest‚ realistic expectations and goals‚ and will develop a clear strategic legal plan based on your specific needs.

What should I expect a personal injury attorney to do for me?

We will review your circumstances‚ educate you about your rights‚ and outline the legal damages you are able to recover. Your attorney will protect your rights‚ serve as your voice‚ and fight for you. We will also advise you of what to expect during the financial and emotional recovery processes‚ and tell you how to best take care of yourself during this period.

What kind of evidence do I need to collect in an accident claim?

At the very least‚ be sure to collect that name of the person involved in the accident and his or her contact information‚ as well as that person’s insurance information. If there were witnesses to your accident‚ collect their names and contact information as well. In addition‚ photographs of the accident scene‚ your vehicle‚ and your injuries are all important to strengthening your case.

How long will it take to settle my injury accident claim?

That will depend upon how severe your injuries are‚ as well as how long it takes you to recover or reach maximum improvement. In order to receive the fairest settlement‚ it’s important that you know the extent of your injuries‚ as well as their long-term impact. For some injuries‚ it can be months or even years before there’s a solid prognosis. You’ll want to wait until you have that prognosis so we can better estimate not only your past and current losses‚ but also your future losses.

What if I live in another state‚ but was injured in New Jersey or Pennsylvania?

Each state has its own personal injury laws‚ so you’ll need an attorney who is licensed to practice law in New Jersey or Pennsylvania and who has a vast knowledge of the state’s laws.

What happens if I lose my case?

Since we work on a contingency fee basis‚ if we don’t win money for you‚ you simply walk away‚ and are not responsible for any costs associated with your case.
