I have been injured, what is my case worth?
It all depends. There are a great number of factors that go in to evaluating an injury case, such as the specifics of the injury, whether you were hospitalized, whether you missed work, whether the injury was a direct result of someone else’s negligence or intentional act, and where the injury occurred. These are just some of the many factors that are at play, and only after a consultation with an attorney will you have an idea about what your case might be worth.
How much will a lawyer cost?
For personal injury suits, you don’t have to pay us anything up front. Your fees are only based on a percentage of whatever you recover, so if we don’t get you any money than we don’t get paid, either and we will not charge you a dime for our work. If we do recover money for your injury, then we will take a percentage of the recovery and our expenses, and then the rest is yours to keep. There may be out of pocket expenses such as fees charged by police for a copy of the accident report, filing fees, and so on, which may need to be paid by you, depending on the specifics of your case.
When should I expect a settlement?
There is no way to predict how long a personal injury case might take. Factors such as how quickly medical offices process requests and the involvement of insurance companies influence heavily the likelihood of and speed of a settlement. Our attorneys understand that this money is needed to resolve issues for you such as medical bills and to help offset wages that you’ve lost from missing work. We do everything in our power to get you the money that you need when you need it.
Can you give me an advance payment on any expected recovery?
Can I handle a property damage claim on my own?
Insurance adjusters deal with individuals quite differently than they deal with attorneys, which can significantly impact the amount of time a claim takes and the potential size of any recovery for property damage. In addition, any statements that you make to adjusters can be used against you in court if you choose to pursue a personal injury claim. It is best to work with an attorney who is experienced in dealing with insurance adjusters and can help you to steer clear of the various potential pitfalls.
What happens if I was hit by an uninsured driver?
If you are involved in an accident with an uninsured motorist, there are a few things that may happen. If your own insurance policy provides coverage of damage and/or medical bills if you are hit by an uninsured motorist, then you will be covered within your own policy within its coverage limits. The insurance company will most likely pursue reimbursement from the other driver by suing them on their own. With the number of uninsured motorists on the road today, this type of insurance is always a wise choice.
If your insurance does offer this coverage, we can sue the motorist for the reimbursement of expenses. There are several factors that influence the likelihood of success, including traffic violations that may have contributed to the accident. Even if our attorneys succeed in getting a judgment against the motorist, the motorist may be “judgment proof,” meaning that they don’t have any assets to pay for the judgment (which is why having the uninsured motorist coverage is always wise).
What is a statute of limitations?
A statute of limitations is a law that puts a time limit on how long something can be brought into court after something happens. In other words, once an accident or a crime happens, the clock starts ticking on how long you have to take action (or for action to be taken against you). Many times the “clock” starts when you knew or should have known that you have a case, and so it’s always important to promptly seek legal advice, otherwise you might not be able to bring your claim in court if the statute of limitations has expired.
