Why is it important if my accident happens at a tribal casino or I have an employment issue with a tribal casino?
Having an accident or an employment dispute at a tribal casino can have unexpected complications that many law firms are not equipped to handle. Accidents and employment disputes at tribal casinos often fall under “tribal jurisdiction”. This means that you may have to bring your claim in a special court system on the tribal reservation. If you want to be successful in bringing your claim, you will want a lawyer with experience and legal certification in tribal courts to bring your claim. Attorney Strafaci is certified to practice in tribal courts and he and his legal team have decades of experience winning successful lawsuits in such court systems.
What is a contingent fee?
A contingent fee is a payment for legal services in which you only pay if there is a favorable result. At the Law Offices of M. John Strafaci, we use a contingent fee for our personal injury cases.
What should I do after I have been injured in an accident?
If you think you have been injured in an accident, you should do several things to increase your chances of getting a successful claim. First, create a record. Collect any documentation of the accident, including medical records, police reports, or anything else that you might think is valuable. You should also take pictures of your injuries and possibly the scene of the accident. Most importantly, you should consult an attorney immediately. Personal injury claims often have fairly short statutes of limitations. This means that if you do not file a timely lawsuit, you may lose the ability to bring your claim.
