General FAQs

Can you handle my personal injury lawsuit?

Pierce Skrabanek PLLC handles a variety of personal injury lawsuits including, auto accident, trucking accident, maritime/jones act, pharmaceutical and medical devices and nursing home abuse. The first step to finding out whether you have a case is to contact our law firm for a free case evaluation. You will speak to an experienced attorney who will analyze the facts of your case.

Will this cost me anything?

Our law firm operates on a contingency basis, meaning you don’t pay anything unless we win. If a settlement or verdict is reached, our fees are paid from a percentage of the recovery. We cover the expenses associated with pursuing your lawsuit and those expenses are later covered if a settlement or verdict is reached.

I have never filed a lawsuit before, how does this process work?

The first step to filing a personal injury lawsuit is to contact our law firm for a free case evaluation. You will speak to an attorney who will analyze the facts of your case and the law to let you know whether you have a case. After you have spoken to us, we will send you a contract and a medical authorization that are necessary to obtain your medical records.

We need to review your medical records prior to filing a lawsuit. Once we have reviewed the medical records to confirm the injury, we will file the lawsuit. During each stage of the process, we ensure that you are kept informed of every aspect of your case.

What happens after I file a lawsuit?

Once we file your lawsuit, we commence “discovery” which is an exchange of information with the Defendant(s). Both parties obtain information related to the lawsuit, including medical records, incident reports, corporate documents, etc. During this process, written discovery is exchanged and depositions are taken. Depositions are oral examinations conducted under oath with both parties present. Depositions are typically taken with a court reporter who types up a transcript of the questions and answers and a videographer who films the examination.

Will my case go to trial?

While most lawsuits are settled after written discovery is exchanged and depositions are taken, it is possible that your lawsuit may go to trial. Our attorneys are experienced trial lawyers who have obtained millions of dollars in verdicts for their clients. If a fair value cannot be reached prior to trial, we will take your case to Court to obtain the best value possible. Our efforts at trial have garnered prestigious awards including induction into the Million Dollar Advocates Club, Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Club and Super Lawyers Magazine.
