There are common reservations individuals have when considering hiring a personal injury lawyer:

  • Cost: Many believe that hiring a lawyer is expensive. However, most personal injury lawyers, including those at van der Veen, Hartshorn, Levin & Lindheim, operate on a contingency fee basis, which means you don't pay unless you win.
  • Complexity: Some people feel their case is too 'simple' for legal representation. However, what appears simple can become complicated quickly.
  • Distrust: The belief that lawyers might not have your best interests at heart. Choosing a reputable and trustworthy firm can alleviate this concern.
