How do I choose the personal injury attorney who is right for me?
Selecting an attorney for a personal injury case is a very important decision. You want to get the best possible results for your case, because financial compensation will help tremendously in your physical, mental and emotional recovery. A firm with experienced personal injury attorneys and a proven track record is your best option.
How soon after an accident should I talk to an attorney?
It is never too soon to talk to an attorney after an accident. As soon as your immediate medical needs have been addressed, it is a good idea to start protecting your legal rights and preserving evidence.. Even if you are still at the accident scene, an attorney at Estey & Bomberger can explain your rights, answer your questions and evaluate whether or not you have a case.
Do I have to hire an attorney in order to ask questions about my case?
At Estey & Bomberger, there is never any obligation associated with speaking with an attorney about your situation. Our experienced trial attorneys are always happy to review your potential claim and give you an honest opinion of your legal rights. In the event you decide not to hire us, you will not be charged. We offer this free consultation for all potential clients.
How do I pay for representation?
We use a convenient contingency fee basis for handling all of our cases. If you work with the law firm of Estey & Bomberger, LLP for your injury claim, you will only be charged if we recover money for you. There are absolutely no retainer fees, hidden costs, or start up charges. If the unlikely event we cannot recover money for you, we will not charge you for our costs or services.
How much is my case worth?
Every injury case is different. It is nearly impossible to determine the value of an auto accident case or any other injury case without talking to an attorney knowledgeable and experienced in personal injury law. Many factors determine the value of your case. You may be entitled to substantial compensation. Our law firm has helped seriously injured and wrongful death clients recover millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts.
The insurance company has offered me a check. Should I take it?
Although it may be tempting to accept an immediate payment, you should talk to an experienced personal injury attorney first. We’re available to talk about your case for free 24 hours a day, seven days a week, toll free at (800) 925-0723. If you accept an insurance company’s offer, you will release the insurance company from further responsibility. The payment offered may be far less than what you are entitled to. There is no reason not to have an attorney review your settlement offer with a free consultation.
How long will I have to wait for a fair settlement offer?
Some cases settle within a few weeks, and others can take years. We always want cases to settle quickly, but we are more concerned about fair compensation. Our attorneys will be able to get a general idea of the value of your case early on, and will aim to get you the maximum compensation you deserve. We will be in contact with you about the status of your case every step of the way. If we cannot reach a fair settlement offer, we will take your case to trial.
What is the difference between compensatory and punitive damages?
Compensatory damages are available to compensate a victim for costs, including medical bills and lost wages. This type of damages also includes payments for pain and suffering and emotional distress. Punitive damages are awarded in extreme cases to punish the wrongdoer and set an example. They are also sometimes called exemplary damages.
What is your firm’s philosophy?

If we accept your case, we will aggressively work to prove liability and collect damages from the party responsible for your injuries or the loss of a family member.
