There is no upfront cost for you to be represented by a personal injury attorney from Turner | Modarelli. We handle personal injury cases on a contingency basis, which means we do not get paid until you get paid.
After an injury, a personal injury attorney can get you in touch with medical staff to provide treatment, rehabilitation, and long term care you may need to recover. Cost of current and future medical care resulting from the injury may be recovered through settlement or litigation.
During the initial consultation with a personal injury attorney from Turner | Modarelli, whether you retain us or not, communications, verbal or written, from you to our attorneys are kept confidential to the extent of the law. If you become a client of Turner | Modarelli, these same confidentiality rules apply. So why is confidentiality so important? It keeps our discussions private, so the opposing side cannot learn about our strategies and what we discuss. We believe in establishing a trusting relationship with our clients and hold sacred our duties as attorneys to keep our discussions confidential and will fight to ensure that those communications remain confidential.
Most lawsuits are filed in either state or federal court. Each court has certain advantages depending on the type of injury suffered by you or the law broken by the defendant. A personal injury attorney from Turner | Modarelli can evaluate your case and determine which court will provide you with the best possible outcome.

Discovery is the process before trial where each party can request for information and evidence from the opposing party for use at trial. The discovery process is different in federal and state court, but there are some similarities between the ways parties can gather information in both courts. It is crucial to craft responses to discovery under the supervision of an attorney because the opposing side will do all it can to expose any ambiguities in your answers. At Turner | Modarelli, our personal injury attorneys have extensive experience in responding to discovery for our personal injury clients to ensure the response is clear, concise, and not exposed to any twisted interpretation by opposing counsel.
Interrogatories

Interrogatories are a list of questions written by one party for the other party to answer. The responding party can provide answers to the questions or objections to the information sought by the question. There are different limits to the numbers of interrogatories sent to the opposing party depending on which court the lawsuit is filed.
Request for Production of Documents

A request for production of documents is written questions from one party to another seeking certain documents, such as emails, letters, or contracts, which are relevant to the lawsuit. Certain documents are privileged from production, meaning there is a law that prevents the disclosure of the document to the opposing party.
Request for Admission

A request for admission is a written statement proposed to the opposing party asking the answering party to admit the truth of the proposed statement.
Deposition

A deposition takes place out of court where a person, the witness or party, is asked questions about a legal matter by an attorney, and the answers are recorded by a court reporter. The deposition answers by the witness or party are taken under oath and are admissible in court proceedings.

Mediation is an informal way of resolving legal disputes between parties. Participation in mediation is voluntary, so a party cannot be forced to attend. It can take place before or after a lawsuit is filed. Generally, there is one neutral person, the mediator, who acts as a referee between the parties by hearing both sides of the story and working to get the parties to reach an amicable resolution. In mediation, there is also a confidential communication privilege, so any discussions with the mediator or other party cannot be used in trial or be discovered through the above discovery proceedings. The confidential communications privilege helps promote full discussion between parties to aid in reaching a settlement or move the parties closer to resolution.
Trial, the culmination of a lawsuit that cannot be resolved with going before the court. Most people are familiar with trials before a judge and jury. When people think of trial, they think of the high dramatics portrayed in movies and television or the screaming attorney badgering the witness, which can be far from the truth. The truth is that trial is stressful for all parties, but a personal injury attorney from Turner | Modarelli will be there there to minimize the stress and navigate your case to a successful verdict.
