Like other plaintiff’s firms, we work on a contingency fee basis. This means that our clients never pay us a dime unless we win them money. And, no matter how big or small your case is, we work hard to put as much money in your pocket as possible. For us, maximizing our client’s recovery is a matter of pride.

Commonly Asked Questions

Your first priority should be moving yourself to safety and calling the police. The police will gather information and create a police report, which can often be a crucial part of the insurance claim process and any subsequent lawsuit. If possible, think about documenting the accident (including skid marks and vehicle damage) with photos or video. Of course, when you’ve been injured, getting better is the most important thing: you should seek medical attention right away, and follow medical advice.

If you have been injured in an accident, you should contact an attorney to make sure you get the compensation you will need for your injuries. With so many people asking you questions about the accident, and possibly asking you to sign documents that you don’t understand, you need an ally in your corner. At Garmey Law, our motor vehicle accident lawyers routinely handle negotiations with insurance adjusters and have the experience to know when it’s the right time to settle your claim and what it’s worth. Our top-notch paralegals will handle collecting your medical bills and records and keeping track of your leans so that you can focus on getting better.

Every case, like every client, is unique. Your case will likely take several months to several years, depending on the nature of your injuries and your recovery from those injuries. This can be difficult for anyone to handle, especially when coping with an injury. When you work with our Maine car accident lawyers, we are dedicated to making this process easier for you. We will work with you to try to expedite the process whenever we can, but our number-one priority is maximizing your recovery. If your case cannot be settled, we will discuss your options going forward, such as filing a lawsuit in a Maine court.
