Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have a case?
The best thing for you to do is contact us and we can talk through the situation, circumstances and your injuries to determine if there is something worth pursuing. Often times personal injury cases seem cut and dry but there can be other issues embedded or developing that you are unaware of. Your best option is to start a conversation with one of our attorneys.
What will my case cost?
We work on a contingency basis at Osborn Machler. That means you don't pay anything until your case goes to court and a ruling is made. The initial cost to you will be your time providing us with details and circumstances regarding your case. If you don't win in court, we don't collect — it's that simple.
What will my role be?
We will require your testimony and any other supporting information to give your case a chance in court. That being said, we have worked with thousands of clients over the years and on a wide range of cases so we have our system well managed and streamlined. We will make the process as time efficient and as simple as possible for you.
What if this is a simple insurance case and my provider wants to cut me a check?
Often times an insurance company will offer an unofficial settlement for an accident or case because they know if it goes to court there is a chance they will end up losing more. It is our job as attorneys to guide you in the path of your best interest. Often times there are other issues beyond what is apparent immediately following an accident. We recommend speaking with an attorney before accepting any payment to determine the best next steps. More often than not these initial insurance offerings amount to far less than the cost of your injuries and damages.
