Who are your clients?

Unlike other attorneys who only claim to practice personal injury law, 100% of our practice is dedicated to representing personal victims and families.

How much does it cost to hire a personal injury attorney?

We offer free consultations to everyone who calls about a personal injury or wrongful death matter. Once you make the decision to hire us, we provide legal services on a contingency basis meaning there is no fee for our legal services unless money is recovered. At our discretion we will advance costs as needed. After the case resolves we take a percentage of the total recovery and our clients must reimburse us for all costs that are advanced. See RPC 1.8(e)(1).

Do I need an attorney to represent me in a personal injury case?

When your health and finances are at stake, most people understand the importance of seeking professional advice. That is why, at a minimum, you should schedule a free consultation with a personal injury attorney to discuss your case. Numerous studies conducted by the insurance companies show that people who hire an attorney tend to receive more money than individuals who represent themselves, and this remains true even after your attorney’s fees and costs are paid.

FN1.  A study funded by the Insurance Research Council (IRC) found that, on average, people who hired an attorney received 3.5 times more money in personal injury cases than individuals who represent themselves.

FN2.  Allstate’s training manual instructs adjusters to discourage individuals from hiring an attorney in personal injury cases because insurance data shows people who are represented by an attorney receive 2-3 times more money than individuals who choose to represent themselves.

Does your firm offer free consultations?

Yes, we offer free consultations to everyone who calls about a personal injury or wrongful death matter. Consultations are held by phone or in person at The Scott Law Firm, PLLC in Vancouver, Washington. We can also arrange to make house calls for individuals who have difficulty traveling.
