Lawyer FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
Many of our clients come to us because they simply don’t know what to do next. Cooper Law Partners wants you to get answers.
How much will it cost me to hire a lawyer?
At Cooper Law Partners, nothing —unless we win. We know how difficult it is in the wake of a severe injury-causing accident and the serious expenses you will already be facing. We, therefore, work on a contingency fee basis, which means that you only pay if we recover compensation for you. From the first consultation to the very end of your case, we will pay all of the litigation expenses—including man-hours we put in and fees of experts that we consult. We are only paid if we win your case, and our payment comes from the total recovery that we earn--not directly out of your own pocket.
Cooper Law Partners seems superior to other injury lawyers. Do you charge more for your services?
We get this question often. Many clients are worried that our successes (victories, awards, accolades, and experience) make us more expensive than other injury lawyers. This is not true. Our contingency fee agreements are in line with other injury lawyers. In fact, we credit our commitment to providing excellent value to our clients as the primary reason our legal team has received so much attention.
How do I know if I have a case?
When you are injured in an accident or by a defective drug or medical device, it can be difficult to know if your case has merit. We offer free case reviews where you can discuss your situation in a confidential and obligation-free environment. During your review, we will carefully review your case and outline the options that may be available to you.
I do not like the idea of lawsuits. Do I still need a lawyer?
Yes, almost certainly. Most personal injury claims do not become lawsuits, but the claim resolution process is often long and complicated and insurance companies employ teams of adjusters and lawyers to protect their interests. If you are involved in an accident that is caused by another person, the negligent person’s insurance company will assign an adjuster and probably a lawyer to oversee your claim and defend the case. This means that individuals who are unfamiliar with the claim resolution process must deal with two professionals who are paid by the insurance company to make your claim go away for as little money as possible. In other words, many victims unwittingly bring a knife to a gunfight. Contacting Cooper Law Partners levels the playing field because our sole mission is to maximize the compensation our clients receive for injuries caused by negligence or the wrongdoing of others. And the insurance companies know that if they will not agree to fairly compensate our clients, we will take them to court. Contact us today for a free, no-obligation case review.
