In this blog, we have discussed frequently asked question, which our client often ask us, from hiring an attorney to claiming financial compensation in personal injury cases.
In legal terms, personal injury is any kind of accident or occurrence resulting from the negligence or wrongdoing of others that leads to bodily injury.

After a car accident, most people experience some degree of shock. However, there are certain steps that should be taken to help ensure a strong case. Most importantly, see a doctor. This is important even if you believe your injuries are minor – or even if you think you have no injuries at all.
If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence or you have been injured at work, then you must speak with an experienced personal injury attorney. The Shahbaz Firm will evaluate your case at no cost to you or your family and help you to determine whether you have a personal injury case.
What are Contingent Fee cases?
Most personal injury cases [at The Shahbaz Firm] are taken on a contingency fee basis, meaning that once you recover money from the person that injured you, the attorney will receive a percentage of that recovery as payment for his services. You do not pay legal fees until and unless we settle or win your case in court.
How much does it cost to hire an attorney in Los Angeles (LA)?
When you work with The Shahbaz Firm attorney, you will owe us nothing up front. We don’t charge legal fees unless we are successful at obtaining a verdict or settlement for you.
Is filing a claim lawsuit always necessary?
Many claims and injury cases are solved through settlement usually even before trial. The truth of the matter is that most are settled without the necessity of filing a lawsuit.
Speaking with an attorney can help you determine if you are entitled to file a personal injury lawsuit to seek the full amount of compensation you deserve.
However, there are some advantages of going to court and letting the jury or judge decide your case.
How much is my case worth?
Practically, it is impossible to know what kind of settlement to expect before investigating the extent of any injuries sustained, medical costs, lost wages, future expenses, and pain and suffering. If any lawyer or attorney is making unrealistic promises, or maybe persuade you to settle for less than your case, don’t trust.
As each case is unique, it is important for you to hire an attorney who will complete a thorough investigation and who will never advise you to accept a settlement for less than you truly deserve.
