What You Can Expect From Us
We will meet with you about your case and answer any questions you may have. Work will begin on your case immediately — it won’t sit around on someone’s desk. We will develop an action plan to ensure that you will receive the best possible result for your personal injury claim. This action plan includes a thorough investigation of your accident, interviews of witnesses, consultations with medical experts about the nature, cause, and severity of your injuries, whether you will have a permanent impairment, your future medical needs, lost income, and any work restrictions you may have.
While our investigation is underway, we strive to help you get back on your feet. We know that being injured in an accident can cause serious financial difficulties. We assist clients in accessing medical payments coverage, health insurance benefits, and a good-faith payment plan to cover the bills.
When your medical treatment is complete, we begin settlement negotiations with the insurance company. You will be fully informed throughout this process. We will advise you whether the insurance company’s offer is fair and reasonable and will explain the basis for our advice. You may wonder what the appropriate settlement amount should be in your case. To answer this question, we rely on results from our past cases, as well as published settlement and jury verdict data. If the insurance company will not offer an amount you are willing to accept, you have the right to file a lawsuit and let a jury decide the amount at trial.
We Strive to Reduce Your Worries and Stress.
We understand the physical, emotional, and financial stress caused by serious injuries. We strive to minimize that stress. After we take your case, we promptly notify the insurance company that you are represented by an attorney. The insurance company must communicate with us from that point forward, not you. Our goal is to let you focus on your recovery and to leave the discussions with the insurance company to us.

No Recovery? No Attorney Fees. It’s That Simple.
At Johnson May, we do not charge an hourly rate to handle injury cases. We charge a contingent fee, which is a percentage of the total recovery we collect for you. Although costs of litigation are extra, it costs nothing upfront to hire the law firm. Regardless of the time, we put into your case, you will pay no attorney’s fees unless we recover for you.
