Will I have to testify in court?

Not necessarily. It is more likely that we can obtain a settlement, which can happen much more quickly and with good results. However, we will go to trial if we do not receive a fair and reasonable offer. All offers will be discussed with you. We also make no guarantees about the outcome of any case.

How long will my case take?

This depends on various factors, many of which are beyond our control. The courts are backlogged with cases, for example, which may delay your case. We can assure you that we’ll make every effort to move your case along as quickly as possible.

When would I have to pay you and how is the fee determined?

Our firm works for a contingency fee, which means the firm gets a percentage of your monetary recovery. We don’t receive a fee unless we obtain money for you, whether by trial, settlement, mediation or arbitration. The firm is also reimbursed for any case-related expenses.

The Office of Court Administration requires that law firms file documents describing how the proceeds are distributed. Legal fees are regulated by court rules.

Can a general practice law firm handle these types of cases?

While some firms may handle personal injury along with many other types of cases, PDB Law limits its practice to the various types of personal injury and medical malpractice. We believe that we can serve your needs better with our specific expertise.

How much money can I expect to get?

Each situation is different so the recovery amount will vary. There are a number of factors that determine the value of the case. So, there is no definitive answer to that question, but as the case progresses we can get a better idea of the potential outcome.
