in its people, not in powerful entities. If an individual or
organization has caused you harm, our attorneys at Morgan & Morgan
can help to make things right by holding the responsible party

Why Choose Morgan & Morgan?
Morgan & Morgan attorneys are required to take at least three cases to
trial each year. Most personal injury lawyers opt to reach settlements
out of court. In fact, many of these lawyers go for years without ever
seeing the inside of a courtroom.
Not us. Decades of legal experience has taught our team that taking a
case to trial is often the only way to force insurance companies and
other defendants to pay a fair amount to injured plaintiffs. In many
cases, settlements are a fraction of what clients would have received
had their attorney insisted on going before a judge.
Morgan & Morgan isn’t a standalone office. We’re a nationwide law firm
with the resources to handle the largest cases against the most powerful
companies. Our dedication to getting top compensation for clients and
treating them with compassion and respect has fueled our growth from a
three attorney firm to a firm with hundreds of lawyers and thousands of
support staff. But the basics of our practice have not changed. We’ve
always been, and always will be, for the people.
How Will Filing a Lawsuit Improve My Life?
We see firsthand the toll injuries take on individuals and families. The
medical bills, lost work time, and diminished ability to live a full and
productive life that often accompany a serious injury can be
devastating. When somebody else is responsible for harming you, it only
adds insult to injury.
A personal injury lawsuit is meant to make the victim whole again. Full
and fair compensation for injuries that are no fault of your own can go
a long way towards getting your life back to how it was before an
accident and ensuring that your family will be provided for. There is
also the matter of bringing the negligent party to justice and providing
some measure of closure to a regrettable turn of events.
What Does the Lawsuit Process Entail?
After your free case evaluation, our team will determine if Morgan &
Morgan is able to take your case. We don’t accept all cases, and if we
think that you don’t have a case or that another firm is better-suited
to handle your claim, we’ll let you know.
If you become a client, you’ll meet in person with your attorney and
begin the formal process of building the case. You’ll need to share with
us any evidence or documentation of the accident and its aftermath. In
due time, an attorney will file a legal document with the court that
officially starts the lawsuit process.
From that point forward your lawyer will handle every aspect of the
case. You may have to answer questions under oath as part of the
discovery process, during which lawyers for each side gather and share
information relevant to the lawsuit. There is also a chance that, if the
case goes to trial, you’ll have your day in court to tell your side of
the story. Should these steps be necessary, we’ll be with you every step
of the way.
The most important thing during this time is for you to rest and recover
while we work on your case. That said, we’ll constantly communicate with
you about the status of the case and you’ll always be able to reach us
with any questions or concerns. And, from time to time, we’ll need to
reach out to you to clarify certain points. Remember, though, that we
work for you. The client has the final say on whether to accept a
settlement or to try the case in court. Also keep in mind that you pay
nothing for our services unless we recover compensation for you.
Is There Anything Else That I Need to Know?
It’s important that you keep records related to your losses. Evidence
such as receipts, medical bills, credit card statements, phone numbers
of witnesses, and photos and videos of the accident and your injuries
are hugely important to your case. Given the time sensitivity of some
evidence, it’s also important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible.
Do not communicate with any person or organization representing the
other party. If an insurance company or attorney reaches out to you,
politely decline comment and promptly refer them to your Morgan & Morgan
attorney, as anything you say could be used to invalidate your injury
Above all, know that you are in good hands with Morgan & Morgan. We’re
one of the largest and most successful plaintiffs firms in the country.
Our lawyers are personal injury law veterans, expert negotiators, and,
if need be, aggressive litigators. We only accept cases that we think we
can win, and we don’t accept lowball settlements.
It costs nothing to discuss your case with us, and if we recover
nothing, you pay nothing.
