- Loose Lips Sink Ships

What Does Ehline Law Firm PC in Santa Monica Do Right Now for You?
There is a reason why we have grown so rapidly. Our verdicts and settlements have gotten us a lot of word-of-mouth referrals. Clients love it that we are so thorough. What do we do right now? In addition to the free case assessment, below is a checklist of what we offer you free of charge to earn your trust and friendship:
- No Recovery No Fee Promise: Contingency fee cases are also known as “no recovery no fee cases.” Hence, you don’t pay your lawyer unless he or she gets you money for your pain, suffering, and economic losses. When you are down and out, you don’t need the risk of out-of-pocket costs to pursue a potential lawsuit. The arrangement we have is never to take an upfront fee. We are compensated directly from the funds we win for you.
- We Advance Case Costs: We often help cover up front investigative costs. Hence, we can order police reports and medical records for example. We don’t get our advanced monies back until the case is over. Our reimbursement comes out of the settlement check.
- Help You Find a Good “Lien” Doctor: Sometimes victims don’t have liability coverages. If they do, it won’t cover the out-of-pocket services they need. If that happens, we can assist them in locating top-notch, reputable doctors and care providers. These are providers who are willing to get paid upon conclusion of the matter. These are also known as “lien doctors.” Hence, the doctor has a lien on the proceeds of your case. He or she agrees to payment at a later date. Imagine suffering a spine injury and having no coverages. Lien physicians solve that problem. So now you can mitigate your physical losses.
- We Come to You If Necessary: We understand you may be without a car, or just unable to get here. Our promise includes coming to your house, office, or hospital room. Whatever it takes, we are willing to jump through hoops to earn your business.
- Handle Your Property Damage Claim for No Cost: No victim should have to deal with the at-fault person’s liability company. Victims have no experience in this, and they don’t need the hassle and frustration and should be left alone to heal. Playing the back and forth games that these companies are famous for requires an experienced player.
- Video Tutorials: We offer a wide selection of online video tutorials on Youtube to help you better comprehend your legal rights.
So you can see that we offer a complimentary full-service detail. By full service, we mean that we will deal with your property damage. We don’t charge for that. What we do here is gather evidence to get you the highest amount for your totaled car. Furthermore, we battle to get your vehicle rental expenses reimbursed. If you lost a work vehicle, we might even be able to get money for “loss of use.” Again no fee to us! We also fight to get you your deductible back for free.
Dealing with the other driver’s carrier is a daunting and frustrating task. But we want you to be able to focus on healing your injuries and pain, not to be mired in the adjuster run-around. That is where we come in handy. Also, some law firms try and take a percentage of what they recover for property destruction or loss emanating from your mishap.
Not true with us. As a complimentary gift to you, when we sign up your case, our services include vigorously fighting to get you top-dollar for car damage, or other tangible items. Furthermore, incidents like motorcycle accidents are often brutal. When you are laid up in the hospital, you are at the mercy of the people helping you with your case. Communication matters.
We also communicate with the insurance company to help get the deductible covered. Reimbursing you for lost income from “loss of use”, and rental car costs is also a task we include on our “to do list.” You may have also lost loved ones in the mishap. We act as a sword and shield while you go through the mourning process. It’s probably a grand idea to bring our considerable experience to bear on your case. You cannot do this by yourself.
When Should I Retain a Santa Monica Accident Lawyer?
When to retain counsel depends on upon how bad you were injured, and when you were injured. Being mired in phone battles with evasive agents can place you at your wits end. You may have thrown up your hands and feel like giving up. But education is a powerful thing. For example, if your damages are less than $7,500.00, you may be better off filing your lawsuit in small claims court.
If you suffered a fatality in your family from someone else’s negligence, like a brain injury, for example, you’ll need to retain a personal injury lawyer sooner than later! The fact of the matter is that you should call a lawyer before doing anything besides receiving proper medical care. Helping victims like while you’re undergoing medical treatment is what we do best. So call us and let us help you now. We can come to your home or hospital bedside to make the process smooth.
