Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Cases
Experiencing a personal injury can leave you feeling frustrated and vulnerable. In addition to the pain of the injury, you may have climbing medical bills. Here are answers to some of the questions we receive most often:
How much is my case worth?
The amount of compensation you can recover after a personal injury accident will depend on the severity of your injuries, the extent of your damages, and the specific facts of your case. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you understand your legal rights and get the compensation you deserve.
Will my case go to trial?
In most cases, personal injury cases are settled out of court. However, if the insurance company is unwilling to offer a fair settlement, your case may go to trial. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you prepare for trial and represent you in court.
How long do I have to make a claim?
The statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim varies from state to state. In most states, you have two years to file a claim after a personal injury accident. However, it is important to speak to an attorney as soon as possible after a personal injury accident to discuss your legal options.
What compensation can I recover?
You may be able to recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you understand your legal rights and get the compensation you deserve.
What is a contingency fee?
A contingency fee is a fee that an attorney charges for their services. The fee is only paid if the attorney wins your case.
Will insurance companies try to pressure me to accept a quick but low settlement offer?
Insurance companies often try to pressure clients to accept a quick but low settlement offer. This is because they know that many people are desperate for money and may be willing to accept anything. It is important to remember that you have the right to negotiate and that you do not have to accept the first offer that comes your way.
It is important to talk to a skilled lawyer about your injury. In addition to representing your claim, an attorney can guide you and make the process less stressful.
