FAQS

General

After you have gone through a questionnaire with our legal intake specialist, it usually takes 24-72 hours to find out if we can help you with your case.

We are a contingency-based firm. No fees unless we win!

We first gather all the details of your case during our intake process. After this, we review all your information with our legal team. If we can take your case, we will send you a retainer to sign. Once the retainer is signed, we will start the investigation process, followed by the discovery process. After these stages are complete, we prepare for trial – the last stage of our legal process.

Ensuring that proper records exist from a car accident is an important part of a personal injury or automotive defect case. Acting quickly on the following steps can help ease the stress of the case.

At the scene: 

Make sure you and others are safe.

Call the police to create an accident report. This helps ensure an accurate record of events gets put on paper immediately.

Gather evidence! Take photos of the accident, photos of any injuries, gather insurance information, contact information, and take notes on what happened and where it happened.

Call your tow company if needed, but if you believe you may have had a vehicle defect, preserve your vehicle at all costs.

After the crash: 

Whether or not you feel seriously injured, it is important to see a doctor as soon as possible after the crash.

Obtain a copy of the police report

Report the accident to your insurance company

Keep track of all bills related to the collision (Medical, rental car expenses, time away from work etc)

Write in a journal how you are feeling daily

Automotive Defects

A design or manufacturing flaw that renders a vehicle unsafe.
Call or email MLG Attorneys at Law immediately.
The vehicle manufacturer, vehicle distributor, last repairer, and dealerships are often responsible for the defects in your vehicle.
A vehicle recall is a process through which a vehicle manufacturer voluntarily recalls (or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration compels a manufacturer to recall) a vehicle because a particular aspect of its design or manufacturing process has failed to meet federal standards of safety.
Enter your vehicle’s VIN number here to find out if your vehicle has been recalled.

Class Action

A class action is a type of lawsuit where one of the parties is a group of people who are represented collectively by a member or members of that group. Usually, the plaintiff seeks compensation from a defendant on behalf of themselves and a group of similarly affected consumers.
Depending on the case, objections, and appeals, it may take several years to receive payment from a class action lawsuit.
No. It does not cost anything to join a class action lawsuit.
