Frequently Asked Personal Injury Questions
Do I need to hire a personal injury attorney?
Any type of litigation that involves insurance companies and financial settlements will have a great number of factors to consider. It can be hard for one person to keep it all in perspective. Additionally, it can be hard for you to know exactly how much money you deserve. The experience of a personal injury accident lawyer is what you need to make sure you are properly compensated for your injuries.
Personal injury lawsuits take too long, is it worth the fight?
Most accident settlements happen out of court. If you have a great personal injury attorney you may be able to settle out of court without the need for a trial, which may allow you to receive compensation sooner than you may think. Each case is different, so it is important to discuss your accident with an experienced accident attorney.
Will an accident or personal injury lawsuit cost me money for legal fees?
In personal injury and accident lawsuits, most lawyers operate on a contingency, meaning they do not get paid unless you win a settlement. However, there may be some expenses that you will have to work out during your initial meeting with your accident attorney.
Can I file a personal injury lawsuit if I think the accident was my fault?
Never admit to anyone other than the accident attorney that you were at fault for an accident. Even if you suspect you are at fault, you can still seek damages for the negligence of the other party.
Can I settle with the insurance company and then seek more compensation later?
Once you accept a settlement from an insurance agency they are no longer responsible for any further expenses related to the accident.
Are all personal injury cases settled out of court?
Although a majority of accident cases are settled outside of the courtroom, a number of them do proceed to trial. When this is the case you want to be sure you have the best possible personal injury trial attorney on your side.
