Commonly Asked Questions

When should I call a personal injury lawyer?

If you have been injured, you should call a personal injury lawyer right away.  You may not need to hire a lawyer, but the sooner you talk to one the better off you will be. If you have been injured in a car accident, insurance companies will start calling you on the day of the accident.  Once you have hired a personal injury attorney, the insurance company will talk to your lawyer and you will not have to deal with them.

If you have been injured in a fall or some other way, you still should call a personal injury lawyer right away.  The sooner you talk to a personal injury attorney, the sooner you will be taken care of.  If you call the personal injury attorneys at Axley, you will actually speak to and be helped by one of our personal injury lawyers.  We also have a team of other lawyers who practice in nearly every other area of the law.  So, if your case is unusually complex or you need help with other things, we have the resources to help you.  We will take care of you from the beginning until the end.


When do I pay a personal injury lawyer?

If you have been injured in a car accident, you should be able to talk to a personal injury lawyer for free right away.  In most cases, you do not pay any legal fee unless you receive compensation; and, you do not pay for you lawyer’s time until after the case is over.  That’s the Axley promise.

Once you decide to hire an Axley personal injury lawyer, then you and the lawyer will enter into a contract to pay for the lawyer’s time and expenses.  The Axley personal injury lawyers do not charge a retainer, and do almost all of their cases on what is called a contingency fee agreement.  With a contingency fee agreement, you do not pay for our lawyers’ time spent on the case unless the personal injury lawyers at Axley are able to get you compensation for your injuries.  At Axley, in the very rare cases when our personal injury lawyers are not able to get you compensation, there is no fee for their time.  In the majority of the cases that the Axley personal injury lawyers do, the contingency fee is a percentage of the total compensation that we get for you.  In addition to fees for the time spent on your case, there are also costs and expenses.  At Axley, we pay upfront for and track all of the expenses on your case.  When we resolve your case and get you compensation, the expenses are reimbursed to Axley.  In Wisconsin, a law firm and a client must agree in writing as to the fees for time that will be charged and how the costs and expenses will be dealt with.  At Axley, we try to make it as easy as possible for you.


What should I bring with me to my meeting with personal injury lawyer?

When you meet your lawyer for the first time, you should try to bring everything you have about the accident.  You may bring pictures, medical bills, police or accident reports, medical records and any letters you received from an insurance company.  The more information you can provide your lawyer, the better prepared your lawyer can be from the beginning.
