Due the statutes of limitations, which vary from state to state, an injured party has a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit before he or she loses the right to pursue compensation. Thus, it is crucial to consult with an experienced attorney as soon as possible. However, many people do not seek legal assistance because they are unfamiliar with the legal system. Further, many delay hiring an attorney for two reasons. First, there are many to choose from, and they don’t want to retain the wrong lawyer. Second, the insurance company initially may seem inclined to go ahead and pay property damages, and they don’t want to pay attorney’s fees if it is not necessary. Thus, we make the decision easy for you by offering the following guarantees:

30-Day Risk Free Trial

The Tatum Law Firm guarantees its clients will receive the best possible legal service in a prompt, timely manner. However, don’t take our word for it. Instead, put us to the test with our 30-day guarantee.

Almost all personal injury law firms take cases on a contingency fee basis, where the firm does not receive a fee unless it recovers something for you. However, once you sign the firm’s retention agreement, your options for terminating the agreement are limited. Retention agreements are similar to an exclusive listing with a real estate broker. If you terminate the services of a law firm and hire another, the first firm can still ask you to compensate them for the work performed until that point.

In almost every other industry, service providers give a satisfaction guarantee. We believe lawyers should too, and we can prove this to you in the first 30 days, completely risk free. Moreover, at the Tatum Law Firm, if you want to terminate our services within the first 30 days for any reason, you may do so free of charge and with no questions asked.

Free Property Damage Claim Resolution

There are two types of claims following most car accidents: property damage and bodily injury. Generally, the property damage claim is straightforward and resolves well before the injury portion of the case. Sometimes after an accident, the insurance company will go ahead and agree to pay for the property damage right away. This can lull people into a false sense of security, so that they delay hiring an attorney because they assume that the insurance company will always be reasonable. This is risky, however, because the insurance companies have no incentive to take care of you. Insurance companies spend a lot of money on catchy advertising campaigns that are all designed to make you trust them. However, they are businesses focused on increasing their profits. In fact, the insurance industry profits by not paying you what you deserve.

We Make It Convenient for You

We offer weekend and after-hour appointments. We know that when you are hurting, particularly in the early days, weeks or months after a serious injury. Moreover, the sooner you contact an attorney, the better chance you will have of obtaining important evidence and successfully filing your claim. Therefore, while our normal office hours are from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, we strive to accommodate clients with extended office hour and weekend appointments. Home and hospital visits are also available in certain circumstances, and there is no additional cost for this service.

With the Tatum Law Firm, you have no reason to delay hiring us simply because the insurance company seems to be willing to pay your property damage claim. When you retain us to recover the costs of your injuries in a car accident, you are not at fault, and your car is damaged, we will assist you in settling your claim for vehicle damage free of charge. The Tatum Law Firm will take its contingency fee only from the non-property damages.
