FAQ

When you have been injured, the last thing you need is uncertainty. At Levin Simes Abrams LLP, we strive to keep our clients informed and break down the process step by step. We have assisted clients in California and nationwide recover compensation for their injuries.

It can be hard to know where to begin seeking recovery, but we have compiled a list of the most common questions we get in initial consultations.

Will I have to go to court?

Not necessarily. In many cases we are able to negotiate a favorable settlement with the insurance company or other party without needing to go to court. This is one of the many ways that having a skilled personal injury lawyer on your side can help. We have the experience to know which cases could settle and which will need to go to trial.

We understand that the possibility of testifying in court is intimidating to many people. We are committed to ensuring that our clients are comfortable with the process by breaking down their cases step by step. We handle the tough questions so you can focus on recovering.

How do I pay for your services?

We provide personal injury assistance on a contingency fee basis. This means that there are no hourly fees; in fact, there are no charges from us at all unless you receive compensation in your case. We take on your case and cover filing fees and expenses in exchange for a portion of any settlement or verdict you get.

How long will the process take?

Every case is different, and many factors contribute to the amount of time your case will take to resolve. Some types of cases take two years or more to fully resolve; others can be settled fairly quickly.

Will I ever owe money if I don't win?

There may be expenses, like filing fees with the court that will need to be paid even if you don't win. Other fees not related to our legal services, like a fee a doctor might charge to review your records, could also come up.
