1. How Much Do You Charge in Fees?
FREE until we win and when we do win, it's never more than what you get. We promise that. We only charge a percentage of your total winnings and usually it's 33% or less -- the same as most other firms. You get all of our 30 years of experience at the same cost as a startup law firm.
2. How Can I Hire You?
It's easy. Just call. Usually after we talk, I can send an online document that allows us to get working for you in as little as 10 minutes.
3. What Makes Your Firm Special?
We are the ONLY Indiana Personal Injury Firm that shows you the Value of Your Case AND When It Will be Done on your phone, at your convenience, 24/7 with the "EZ Case" App. Download it today.
4. Will You Come see Me at my Home or in the Hospital?
Yes. The days of the old lawyer sitting in his office chair and waiting for the clients to come to him are over. We will visit you anytime, anywhere. At no charge to you.
5. Can I Fire My Current Attorney and Not Pay Double Attorney Fees?
Of course. Indiana law says you only pay ONE fee. If there is a recovery, then we pay the former attorney.Yes, you can hire us. No, you won't pay double fees -- only one fee. The law protects you in this area. Any fee must be split between the lawyers you once had and us.
If you already hired another attorney for your wrongful death or injury case and you are not happy with the communication or results or offers, then it is FREE to talk. It is very important to be comfortable and trust your personal injury attorney -- nothing is more important.
If you decide a switch is in your best interest, then our law firm policy is to pay any liens or expenses associated with the former lawyer out of the settlement or verdict you could receive with us.
If there is no future recovery, then there will be NO FEE by either lawyer (depending upon your contract with the other lawyer). Call us today.
6. Will You Send Me a Bill During My Case?
No. You will never receive a bill. The only time we talk about fees is when your case settles or when we win in court.
7. Can You Help Me get my Crash or Accident Report?
Yes. It's easy. I'll help. If you need it early, simply go to the police station that investigated your case or see buycrash.com
8. The Insurance Adjuster for the Other Driver is Calling Me and Making a Small Ofer. Should I Talk to Him?
No. Not until you see us first. There's a time to talk, but that doesn’t happen until you’ve consulted with us and prepared. Some things you say could be recorded and used later against your interests.
9. The Other Driver's Insurance Company Told Me I Don't Have a Case Because I Didn't go to the Hospital Right Away or the Crash Report Says I Wasn't Injured. Is That True?
No. You still might have a very good case. Come in and talk for FREE.
10. How Much is My Case Worth?
Maybe a lot. Maybe a little. One thing is for sure – Shaw Law has the EZ Case App. We are the only personal injury firm that will tell you the estimated value of your case and when you can expect a settlement. On your phone. 24/7. Just download the app at iOS App Store or Google Play.
11. How Long Will This Take?
We do things FAST. We do two things differently than other personal injury firms at Shaw Law that really accelerate personal injury cases -- we file your lawsuit immediately if it looks like a fair settlement won't happen.
Some law firms wait two years until the Statute of Limitations is about to run out.
The other thing we do we learned a long time ago -- soon after filing the initial Complaint for Damages -- we file "The Holy Trinity" with the Court -- our own designed motions to accelerate the process and get a court date and settlement conference at the first opportunity the Court has available.
Why wait for years doing nothing?
And you can check the expected settlement or verdict date by downloading the EZ Case smartphone app at Google Play or iOS App Store. See when we expect your case to settle.
We are the ONLY Indiana personal injury law firm with a smartphone app that lets you see what has been done and what remains to be done.
We put our money where our mouth is.
12. I'm Getting Bills in the Mail for Medical Treatments But Somebody Else Injured Me? What Can I do to Stop Collections?
See us and we will discuss it. There might be hidden insurance coverage you haven't thought of or other methods.
