Answer - We offer free consultations to evaluate your case, and you will not be responsible to pay Fabian VanCott attorney fees unless we win.

Answer -Conrad Law is a small firm specializing in catastrophic injury law. All cases are personally overseen by Mr. Conrad. Associate attorneys play an essential role, however, and our firm takes a team approach to casework. Our clients are encouraged to collaborate as members of that team as we work towards winning settlements and financial compensation.
Answer - Cases vary widely in scope and complexity. The length of a case depends on several variables, so it is not possible to say exactly how long a case may take. Also, courts often have a backlog of cases and consider older cases before recent cases. Some cases do settle before going to court, but a settlement usually will not occur until the trial date is near.
Answer - Trial can often be avoided through an amicable settlement. Fabian VanCott, however, will always prepare your case on the assumption that we will proceed to trial.
Answer- It is very difficult to know how much any case might be worth. Every case is unique, and specific monetary awards are impossible to predict. Injury victims may be entitled to be reimbursed for all harms and losses caused by their accident.

Answer - No. You are under no obligation to speak to the other person or entity's insurance company before hiring a lawyer. If you wish to say anything at all, you can inform them that you intend to retain an attorney and that any communication should go through your attorney's office once he or she has been hired.
Answer - 1/3 or 33 and 1/3% of the gross recovery in most cases. In some cases against the U.S. government fees are limited to 25% of the gross recovery. In other very time consuming and complicated cases, the fee may be 40% of the gross recovery.
This is simpler than it sounds. If you hire me to represent you in a personal injury action, it will cost you nothing unless I recover. My office advances all costs and expert fees associated with resolving your claims. At the end of your case, my fees are calculated from the total recovery, any costs are subtracted after that, and the remainder goes to the client, and, if necessary, to the client's medical providers to satisfy any liens or medical bills.
Answer - Fabian VanCott will advance any up-front, out-of-pocket costs to pursue your case. We will not charge you any fee unless we obtain a settlement or verdict in your favor.
Answer - Our legal fee, upon resolution of your case, will be calculated as a percentage of the settlement or judgment.
Answer - We are passionate about seeking justice and compensation for those who have suffered catastrophic personal injury from the negligence of others, whether in a motor vehicle (e.g., car, truck, taxi, Uber, Lyft, bus, bicycle, motorcycle, etc.), medical malpractice, brain and spinal injury, road construction accident, industrial accident, product liability accident, or slip-and-fall, as well as wrongful death.
Answer - Yes. It is important to contact us as soon as possible after you have been harmed. Statutes of limitations and other factors can prevent your case from being considered if it is not filed on time.
Answer - Yes. Plaintiffs are often family members of deceased victims.
Answer - Let's start with a free initial consultation. If we can't take your case, we'll try to refer you to an attorney who can help you.
Answer - Yes. Anytime a person has been seriously or catastrophically injured because of someone else's fault, it is best to have an attorney to represent your interests as soon as possible. It is not necessary to wait until an insurance company is being difficult or not offering to settle the claims to hire an attorney.
The best time to hire an attorney is as soon as you know that the injury was someone else's fault. This allows the attorney you hire to start investigating and managing your case early and to protect you and your family.
Answer - Yes. Anytime a person has been killed because of someone else's fault, you want to have an attorney representing your family's interests as soon as possible. Wrongful death and survival claims are complicated and should be handled by an attorney with experience dealing with the complexities they present.
Answer - This is a difficult question to answer because each case is different and has its own complications. A personal injury or wrongful death case could be resolved within 4 months under certain very specific conditions. More likely than not, these cases take a year or more to resolve.
In cases of serious injury, you don't want to settle or resolve your claim too quickly because it is very difficult to know the complete extent of damages that you will need to address.
In some complicated cases, it can take years to resolve the claim through negotiated settlement or trial.
Answer - You should pick the lawyer that has the expertise to address your case and has a proven track record of obtaining good results for other clients.
Just as important, however, is how do you get along with your attorney? Do you "click?" A personal injury or wrongful death case can take a long time to resolve. The relationship between an attorney and client is intimate and ongoing. Because of the very nature of a catastrophic injury or death, you should feel like you can talk to your attorney and that your attorney will be responsive and available for you.
The first question should be competence, the second and almost coequal question is can I get along with this person for the next year or two? Better yet, I like this person and I am excited he is working on my case.
