Personal Injury

QUESTION: What is the biggest and smallest case you will take?

ANSWER: Although many of my cases involve surgery, no case is too big or too small.  I handle cases ranging from minor strains / whiplash all the way up to death.

QUESTION: I have been injured in a car wreck.  Do I need your help?

ANSWER: Yes.  Insurance companies are in business to make money.  Therefore, insurance adjustors are trained to settle claims for as little as possible.  I, on the other hand, have a law degree and I’m trained to get you the best settlement possible.  With me as your lawyer, your settlement should result in more money to you than if you had not hired a lawyer, even after subtracting my fee.

QUESTION: Can you recommend a doctor who will treat me on credit?

ANSWER: Yes.  If you do not have a doctor or do not want to pay up front co-pays because the accident was not your fault, then I can refer you to a doctor who will treat your injuries on credit and wait to be paid out of the settlement.  I have a working relationship with various doctors throughout Tulsa and surrounding areas, including M.D.’s, D.O.’s and chiropractors.

QUESTION: Can you help me obtain a rental car?

ANSWER: Yes.  I can work with the other driver’s insurance company to authorize a car for you.  If, for whatever reason, the insurance company will not pre-authorize a rental car, then we can bypass them and go directly to the rental company and get you into a car today.

QUESTION: How much money will I receive at settlement for my injuries?

ANSWER: Every case is different.  Impacts are different, injuries are different, treatment plans are different, bills and lost wages are different, therefore, it is impossible to tell you exactly what you will receive.  Rest assured, however, that with me as your lawyer, you will receive the very best settlement possible.

QUESTION: How much do you charge?

ANSWER: I handle my personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis.  Most attorneys charge 33 1/3 %, however, due to my lower overhead, I am able to undercut most lawyers by charging only 30%.  In certain circumstances, either at the beginning of the case or at the time of settlement, I might agree to charge less.  Call for details.  I do not charge for helping you with your property damage (car) settlement.  The bottom line is that I want you to be a satisfied client because at some point in the future you will have a friend or family member who is involved in an accident and I want you to refer them to me.

QUESTION: What do I need to do to get started?

ANSWER: Simply call me for a twenty minute appointment and I will see you immediately.  If you cannot make it to my office, then I can meet you at your home, office or hospital.
