Phillips Law Offices accepts cases on a contingency fee basis, which generally means little to nothing is required by you up front. The attorney’s fees for representing clients are deducted from the final personal injury settlement.

This also means we only get paid if you win.
The statute of limitations can vary significantly depending on the facts of each case. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims and wrongful death claims is usually two years. For personal injury claims, the two-year limit usually begins on the day of the incident. For wrongful death the two-year limit typically begins on the date of death. However, there are certain situations where the statute of limitations is shortened and others where it may be extended.
The statute of Limitations for medical malpractice is slightly different because the 2 year limit can begin on: the date of injury, the date you noticed the injury, or the date when you or a treating physician should have become aware of the injury.
The reason for imposing a Statute of Limitations when it comes to filing a personal injury claim is because, over time, it becomes increasingly difficult to prove as evidence is damaged, destroyed, or even corrupted. Furthermore, considering the importance of evidence and witnesses during the litigation process, a time limit is set in place because memories of occurrences and details may gradually fade for all parties.
