If you or someone you love has suffered a physical or mental injury as a result of someone’s negligence or harmful act, you should contact our office immediately. The sooner we discuss your situation, the sooner we can collect crucial evidence and protect your rights. Depending on the type of case, Maine Law limits the amount of time that a plaintiff has to file a claim.
Anyone who has been injured, lost a loved one, or been wronged by another party has a lot of questions. First, you want to know about your rights and the legal process.
In many cases, you’ll be working with a lawyer for weeks, months, and in some cases years. It’s important you find a team that listens to you, values your insight, and speaks clearly in plain language. An informal question-and-answer session is a great way to find out if a law firm is the best fit for you. We invite you to sit down with us (or set up a time to connect virtually) so we can get to know one another, and learn more about your situation. Consultations are always free, and you have no obligation to us.
Some cases have merit, and some do not. From the start, we will be straightforward with you as we gather the facts and assess your case. We will work hard to determine whether you have a legitimate claim, and whether filing a lawsuit is in your best interest. In all cases, the first step is a free consultation with one of our lawyers.
There is no cost to you unless we win. We accept all personal injury, product liability, and medical negligence cases on a contingency basis. If we obtain a jury verdict or reach a settlement that you approve, then a portion of the compensation goes to cover the costs of handling your case. Our firm proudly represents good people from all walks of life. We believe that everyone, regardless of wealth or social status, should have access to the highest quality of legal representation.
Unlike the legal dramas on television, the vast majority of cases never go to trial. Most are resolved out of court. Our clients have the final say on every settlement agreement that we negotiate. Of course, some cases do proceed to trial, and the lawyers at Garmey Law are regarded as some of the best trial lawyers in the region. We approach every case as if it were going to trial, making sure that all of the pieces – the evidence, the expert witnesses, the research and the arguments – put you in the best position to win.
This is a tough one to answer, because every case is unique. Many factors come into play, such as the extent of injuries, the recovery time and the level of cooperation by an insurance company. Some cases can resolve within a few months, while the most complicated cases can take years. We understand that clients want their cases resolved as quickly as possible, and that delays can be frustrating. With that said, justice often takes more time than people expect. Our number one goal is to get you the highest amount of compensation for your injuries. We will aggressively pursue this goal for the duration of your case, no matter how long it takes.
Out-of-pocket expenses such as vehicle repairs, the cost of a rental car and the loss of use of your vehicle are all eligible for compensation. If you have been injured in an accident, you are entitled to compensation for reasonable medical expenses. Loss of earnings – from the past, present and future – are the responsibility of the party at fault or the insurer. You may also receive compensation for the emotional aspects of the injury, such as pain and suffering.
