Personal, One-on-One Service

The Nash & Franciskato Law Firm has the technology and resources of a much larger firm; however, our smaller size enables our attorneys and staff to work one-on-one with you, providing caring, personal service every step of the way.

You, the victim, are our top priority. While every case is different, during a no-cost initial consultation, together we will review the details of your case and determine the best legal strategy.

What information do you need to review my case?

For an initial consultation of your case, bring copies of police reports regarding traffic or vehicular accidents, and photographs of damage and the injuries sustained. Our staff will request your medical records for review.

Should I sign a Release? What does that mean?

In general, a Release means you give up the right to seek any further recovery from the individual or corporation released.

Example: If you settle your personal injury case, you will be required to sign a Release against the defendant agreeing not to take any further action against him or her. In return, the defendant pays you an agreed-upon settlement amount.

Bottom line; NEVER sign a Release unless your attorney has reviewed it first. He or she will advise you on the action to take.

What if I am asked to sign medical or employment authorizations?

Just like with a Release, NEVER sign any documents without your attorney’s advice. If you sign documents such as these, the insurance company may also be able to get your private medical records or bills and even talk with your doctor.

When should I hire an attorney?

You should hire an attorney as soon as possible, especially if severe injuries or a wrongful death is involved. Evidence disappears and details are forgotten, which may leave nothing left to help prove your case.

How long do I have to file a claim?

Your time for filing a claim is limited by law, which is another important reason to consult and retain a lawyer as soon after the event as possible. An experienced personal injury lawyer can advise you on the applicable statute of limitations.

What questions should I ask when hiring a personal injury attorney?

There are a number of questions you should ask when talking with a lawyer to represent you.

  • Does the firm work on a contingent fee basis?
  • Does the firm have experience in personal injury law?
  • How long has the law firm been practicing personal injury law?
  • What is the firm’s success rate?
  • Do other law firms refer cases to the firm?
  • Does the law firm have the time and resources needed to work on your case?
  • Who will be the attorney that will represent you and what staff will be involved?

Read more about why these questions are important in your decision-making process.
