Why Hire The Francis Firm And Not A TV Commercial Lawyer?


Unlike the TV attorneys, we are real trial lawyers that will meet with you, be available to discuss your case and fight for you until we obtain the very best result. With them, you will only be a file number that communicates with a non-attorney. TV lawyers talk tough on television but are only marketers that do not represent clients in court.

You can choose to hire the real trial lawyers at the Francis Firm to get the compensation you deserve, or you can hire a lawyer advertising on TV, be just another file number and accept a smaller settlement.

Why Do I Need A Personal Injury Lawyer?

If you or a loved have been injured or killed due to the negligence of another, your rights need to be protected. So why do you need to contact and hire a personal injury attorney right now?

  1. The Insurance Company Already has Lawyers: Every moment you wait to seek professional legal counsel is a moment the insurance company will use against you to defend and deny your claim. Insurance companies and corporations have professionals trained and willing to take advantage of the inexperience of injured victims. That is why you need experienced and aggressive legal counsel from the very beginning to protect your rights and get you the maximum possible compensation.
  2. Hiring a Lawyer Increases Your Financial Recovery: Not only does hiring a personal injury attorney help you understand your rights and get the medical care you need, it also significantly increases your financial recovery. In 2004, the Insurance Research Council — a research organization created and funded by the insurance industry — did a comprehensive study comparing the value of settlements people received for the same injury when represented and without an attorney. The IRC determined that people who were represented by an attorney more than tripled (3x) their net settlement recovery, even after attorney’s fees were paid. Bottom line, if you do not hire a personal injury attorney for your accident, you are losing the financial compensation you deserve.
  3. Finding and Paying for Medical Care After an Injury is Harder than you Think: After an accident, many injury victims learn for the first time their local doctors, even their PCP, will not actively treat the victims of automobile collisions. The Francis Firm can help you obtain treatment from the highest quality medical providers to evaluate and treat any injuries caused by your motor vehicle accident, whether physical therapy, diagnostic testing or major surgery. The Francis Firm can also help you navigate the cost and financial burden associated with your medical care, even if you cannot afford to pay for treatment.

What should I do immediately after suffering a personal injury?

After a personal injury, your first priority is your health. Seek medical attention promptly, even if your injuries seem minor. Next, document the incident by taking photos, collecting witness information, and filing a report if applicable. Finally, consult with a personal injury attorney to understand your rights and potential legal actions.

How do I know if I have a valid personal injury claim?

A valid personal injury claim generally involves negligence or intentional wrongdoing by another party that led to your injuries. If you've been harmed due to someone else's actions, consult with a personal injury attorney. They can assess the details of your case, determine liability, and advise you on the strength of your potential claim.

What damages can I recover in a personal injury case?

In a personal injury case, you may be entitled to various damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage, and more. The specific damages depend on the circumstances of your case. A personal injury attorney will evaluate the extent of your losses and help you pursue fair compensation through negotiation or litigation.

How long do I have to file a personal injury lawsuit?

The statute of limitations for personal injury cases varies by jurisdiction. It's crucial to act promptly, as there are time limits for filing a lawsuit. Generally, you should initiate legal proceedings within a few years of the incident. However, certain factors may impact this timeframe. To ensure you don't lose your right to compensation, consult with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after the injury occurs.
