In representing personal injury clients, Hannon Lerner is a lawyer’s firm. Many of our personal injury clients are referred to us by other attorneys. Our attorneys are also available for direct consultations with injured clients and their families. Consultations for personal injury claims are free, and representation is typically undertaken on a “contingency fee” basis. This means that the firm will assume the costs of pursuing a claim, and will recover a fee only if there is a settlement, judgment, or other award.
Insurance is oftentimes available to compensate you if you are injured by the acts of another person. However, it is important to hire a firm familiar with dealing with insurance companies, as there are often procedural requirements that must be met.
