Do I need a personal injury lawyer?

Yes. In every case of injury, a personal injury lawyer is the best way to get the compensation you deserve. An insurance company will always pay you the least amount of money that they possibly can. You need an advocate, and that’s where we come in.


Do I need a bankruptcy lawyer?

You need a bankruptcy lawyer if you:

  • Have over $5,000 in credit card debt

  • Have over 10 credit cards

  • Have ever utilized payday loans

  • Are considering trying debt consolidation

  • Were hospitalized and do not have medical insurance

  • Are having your car repossessed

What fees or costs will come out of my settlement at the end of my personal injury case?

Boyer Law Group receives 33% of the settlement if the case is resolved before trial, and 40% if the case goes to trial. Most cases are resolved before trial. There is a $435 court filing fee, and other fees are dependent upon the needs of the case. Some examples include court motion fees, a mediator fee if the case can be resolved through mediation, a deposition/court reporter fee if depositions are necessary, or costs to hire an expert witness. These kinds of fees will vary from case to case. Lastly, medical costs like medical bills, Medicare, and lien-based treatment are negotiated down from the initial amount and paid. The rest of the money from the settlement goes straight to you.


How do I pay for your services? Do you accept payment plans?

For personal injury services, you will pay once your case is complete. For Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy services, we will accept payments over time, but will not begin providing services until the payment is received in full. For bankruptcy services, only cash or cashier’s checks are accepted.


What’s the difference between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy?

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is designed to eliminate credit card debt and medical bills for those who don’t have the income to repay their debts. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is for homeowners who are behind on their mortgages and need time to reinstate them. It’s also for people who have credit card debt, but have good income, or have assets like a home.


What should I do immediately after I’ve been injured in some kind of accident?

Get medical treatment immediately. This includes any necessary hospital visits, surgeries, chiropractic services, orthopedic services, physical therapy, and psychiatric and mental health services. It’s important that all medical care be put in motion immediately. If you don’t seek immediate medical attention, insurance companies may view it as a lapse in treatment and claim that the injury is not serious.

In some cases, you may lose income because of your injury. This could be because you’re unable to go to work, have to turn down projects due to your injury, or even get fired or laid off because of your injury. If this happens to you, start tracking all of your missed time and/or jobs you have to turn down. The more meticulous you can be, the better.


Do you take all cases that come to you?

Jason Boyer is personally involved in every case at Boyer Law Group. This means you receive personalized attention and service, but it also means we cannot accept every case that comes our way. If we are too busy to take your case, we will refer you to another firm that you can trust.

Contact us if you have more questions about how we might refer your case to the best attorney for the job.


How many cases do you work on at the same time?

On average, Boyer Law Group works on about 50 cases at a time. This ensures that each client receives a personalized experience and access to Jason Boyer.


Will I be able to talk to you when I need to?

At Boyer Law Group, your attorney is always within reach. Jason Boyer provides his clients with his personal cell phone number so that they can contact him directly at any time. Of course, we cannot promise that we will be able to discuss your case at any given moment, but we are always reachable and will get back to you as soon as possible.


What do I do if you can’t take my case?

If Boyer Law Group cannot take your case, we will refer you to a qualified attorney that we know has the time and experience to give your case the attention it needs.

How long will my personal injury case take to settle?

How long will my bankruptcy case take to process?

Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases usually take about 4 - 5 months to process. Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases take about 5 years to process, depending on how much money is owed to creditors.
