The following questions are commonly asked of personal injury lawyers. We know that many of you will have questions specific to your accident; please review these and feel free to contact us for a FREE evaluation.

Personal Injury Law is one of the most complex areas of law. It involves seeking compensation from large, sophisticated insurance companies and navigating very detailed and constantly changing laws and regulations. Dye & Russell has the experience and expertise to ensure that your rights are properly protected and that you make a complete physical, emotional and financial recovery.

You should contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. In certain cases you are required to put the defendant you will be suing on notice within a matter of days. Failure to act quickly could actually bar your claim. Dye & Russell will ensure that your rights are protected and that you access all the best treatment during the critical early stages following an injury. We will also act swiftly to make sure that all the evidence necessary to properly present your case is preserved and collected.

We understand all the difficulties you will face following a personal injury or death in your family. The last thing you need is another expense. We offer a free evaluation of your case with no obligation and when you do choose us to represent you we never charge any fee until your case is settled or won. We spend whatever is necessary to properly evaluate and present your claim and we make sure that you get funding to pay for the treatment you need. We will only settle your case when it is ready and make sure you receive all that you are entitled to.

Unfortunately it is impossible to provide an answer that will apply to all cases. The majority of cases are settled within two years. Some are resolved much sooner than that. Some take longer.
When we speak to you about your case we will explain the claim and litigation process in detail and provide you with an estimate as to how long it will take to resolve your case.




I highly recommend this law firm, the entire staff is friendly, personable and professional. My case was extremely large, complicated and difficult to deal with.
