  • What's my case worth?
    No one can provide this estimate with any degree of certainty until treatment is concluded and the injured person’s condition is completely known.  There are huge variables.  A totally disabling injury for a person who works as a truck mechanic might be a gross inconvenience for a trial lawyer.  We speak from experience.  See our biographies. 

    ​The Workers’ Compensation Act contains a complicated and slightly crazy system of evaluating permanent but partial disabilities.  It is far better to discuss individual cases with one of our lawyers than to make guesses at the early stage of a case.

    But remember, the oldest trick in the book is to promise a potential client “millions” to get him to sign a representation contract and then to tell him later that the case “didn’t work out as expected.”  We won’t make false promises.  Beware of that tactic if you are looking for a lawyer.  Also remember, “our success is your success.”  We want to get as much as possible for you.
  • How long will this take?
    The same question comes up in our law school classes.  Professor Jeep tells his students: “The medical treatment drives the timing of the legal action.”  No case should be considered for closure until the injured person is “medically stable.” We sometimes refer to that as “maximum medical improvement” or “MMI.”  It can take weeks to be healed and released or in some tragic cases it takes many years.  We represent a quadriplegic gentleman whose case can never be completely closed because we have secured over $150,000 per year in medical benefits which must remain open for the rest of his life.  These benefits included a medical van, round-the-clock nursing care, and remodeling of the house to allow him the greatest mobility and freedom of movement possible.

    In short, each case has its own unique characteristics and needs.  We don’t want to keep the case open one moment longer than needed but won’t move to close it until the time is right.
  • What if I can't afford to pay a lawyer?
    ​You can easily afford the best: Jeep & Hauck will make no charges on your Workers’ Compensation case or personal injury case unless we win. This is called a “contingent fee.” The more you win, the better we are paid. Our success will be your success!
  • What is the process?
    Our goal is to obtain benefits at the lowest cost as quickly as possible. We employ a “case management” system to guide your case through the legal process. Our staff members, Kathy Lapham, Ann Gustafson, and Christina Frias play active roles in gathering information (including medical records and billing) organizing it, and relaying information to the lawyers and insurance adjusters involved in the case. We believe that you have the right to hear back from one of our lawyers or one of our case managers within 24 hours if you call or send an email to us. We try to respond on the same day whenever possible. We don’t always meet our goal, but we try hard to keep you fully informed. Christina provides Spanish translation. It is important that you provide all the information to us and we’ve learned that reliance on a team approach to the handling of your case is the key to success.
