How do I choose a law firm?
The attorney you select can be crucial to the success of your case. One of the most important aspects to consider in your selection is the firm's experience in handling similar cases. For many years, Northland Injury Law has successfully litigated personal injury and wrongful death cases for our clients. Our extensive courtroom experience includes a diverse combination of work on behalf of injured people in civil matters. We use this experience to offer our clients the best possible legal representation and counsel.
How do I know if I have a worthwhile claim?
It's usually difficult for you to make this determination on your own since there are a variety of legal factors to consider. The best way for you to find out if your claim has legal merit is to contact our office for an initial discussion with one of our attorneys. During this initial conversation, we will obtain the information we need to help you better understand your legal options. This initial consultation is free and can be scheduled by contacting our offices at 816-400-4878.
How is the law firm paid?
Northland Injury Law handles personal injury and other similar cases primarily on a contingency basis. This means we don't get paid unless you receive a settlement. We then are paid a percentage of that settlement as our fee.
How long do I have after an injury or accident to file a suit?
The limitations are different for various types of cases. It's best to contact us as soon as possible after an injury or accident. This allows us to be involved in the situation early on and advise you on retaining documentation that will be helpful in preparing your case.
Will I have to go to trial?
The attorneys at Northland Injury Law are trial lawyers, and we thoroughly and meticulously prepare each case as if it were to go to trial. Ultimately, deciding whether to go to trial is an individual decision that you, the plaintiff, would make. However, our attorneys will offer their advice and expertise in helping you make the best decision for your individual circumstances.
