attorneys of a law firm play a prominent role in a case. What many people
don't realize is the key role of the staff members and resources that
support the lawyers. Perry & Haas take exceptional pride in their
staff, who are a critical part of the legal team. Our lawyers and additional
supporting staff members each play a vital role in pursuing successful
outcomes for our clients. Together, we have achieved landmark awards
and settlements in some of the most important personal injury lawsuits
One of the important services Perry & Haas provides for our clients in the difficult time following
an accident or injury is expertise and guidance through
the complex judicial process. The more insight our
firm can provide into the workings of the system, the
better prepared our clients are for the challenges
of the legal process. Within this, we offer a brief
overview of how the legal system works, how the team
of legal professionals at Perry & Haas prepares
for our cases, the results obtained for several of
our clients, as well as the impact these cases have
had on improving safety conditions for the entire community.
The attorneys of Perry & Haas are experienced
in achieving structured settlements that produce high
levels of recovery for our clients. For example, the
firm successfully negotiated a $3.8 million settlement
for one particular client. Instead of accepting a lump
sum from the defendant, however, we structured the
payment of the settlement over time with interest—a
plan that may ultimately yield more than $49 million
for the plaintiff.
We handle each case on a contingency fee basis, which
simply means that our compensation is a percentage
of the recovered amount. If no recovery is achieved,
no fees or expenses are charged. By advancing the total
cost of case preparation and charging for our services
on a contingency-only basis, we provide each client,
regardless of his or her financial circumstances, with
equal access to expert legal representation, as well
as our total commitment to a successful case outcome.
Leading Edge Technology
The firm uses state-of-the-art computer hardware and
software, as well as video recording and editing equipment
to enhance the preparation and presentation of all
cases. Advanced computer technology enables electronic
evidence storage, as well as instant retrieval of documents,
evidence, and other images for computer-projected presentation
in the courtroom.
In order to help clients prepare for and give depositions
in a relaxed, non-threatening atmosphere, we have the
ability to videotape deposition testimony in one of
our own conference rooms via remote video cameras.
Other technological advances employed by the firm
include an advanced information management system and
a custom-designed, litigation-support software program.
Staff members can instantly access case and client
information, as well as retrieve and analyze massive
amounts of related technical data. The firm also has
a high speed connection to the Internet for research
and e-mail. This website provides updates about the
firm and our cases.
Legal and Technical Library
In addition to the firm's extensive law library, we
have compiled a technical library that provides ready
access to important medical, nursing, engineering,
and legislative publications. This technical library
encompasses a searchable digital database of tens of
thousands of publications.
The firm maintains a private evidence storage warehouse
for vehicles, equipment, and documents. This facility
gives us access to evidence and prevents deterioration,
tampering, and other possible damage. The evidence
warehouse contains over 30,000 square feet of enclosed
space to store exemplar evidence, as well as more than
100 accident vehicles. As part of the firm's investigative
work, our video crew frequently tapes the inspection
of warehoused vehicles by experts who assist in case
