Screening and Investigation
In many cases, there are steps that need to be taken immediately to locate witnesses and preserve evidence. It is vitally important to contact an attorney as soon as possible after an injury or death has occurred. If after the initial contact we believe your case has merit, we will schedule an in-person meeting with one of our attorneys. There are no costs or fees for this consultation.
If you are unable to travel because of your condition, our attorneys come to you. If we determine that our attorneys can pursue your case, you will be asked to sign a contingency fee contract.
The first step in any lawsuit is to immediately conduct a thorough investigation. If you choose to retain our firm, we will immediately begin investigating your case, which may include interviewing witnesses, gathering and preserving physical evidence and hiring experts or investigators. Cash Krugler Fredericks strives to use world class experts in our cases, including accident reconstructionists, engineers, economists and physicians.
The investigatory stage can take anywhere from one to six months or more, depending upon the particular facts of your case. In medical malpractice actions, multiple medical experts are often required and their reviews can take considerable time. After the investigatory phase is over, the firm will make a final determination about whether the claim should be prosecuted.
