What does personal injury mean?
Personal injury means any injury sustained to your person which includes physical, mental, and emotional injuries.
What is personal injury recovery?
Personal injury recovery means the monetary amount that you recover from your personal injuries. This is the amount that you get from a settlement with an insurance company or a lawsuit.
Who is liable in a personal injury case?
This varies by case. This is why it is imperative that you obtain legal assistance to determine the parties at fault.
What can I be compensated for?
Compensation can be achieved for medical bills, pain and suffering, as well as lost wages.
How soon should I take care of it?
As soon as possible. It is important that you document your injuries within a few days of the accident along with any photographs, physical evidence, or witness statements.
If I am filing a lawsuit, how do I notify the responsible parties?
You will need to notify them in writing as soon as possible. The type of accident will dictate who needs to be notified. Our attorneys can take care of this for you.
What if lots of people suffered from the same injuries and accidents?
If you weren’t the only one, then you have the option of filing a class action lawsuit.
Why should I hire an attorney?
You should hire a personal injury attorney to help you wade through the waters of evidence in a case. They can help to determine the type of case you have, and what action needs to be taken. When you hire an attorney, they will negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf and notify all potential defendants for you.
Without being able to show a claims adjustor that you can win your lawsuit, you won’t be offered a fair settlement. Liability is key here. Liability applies differently to different types of personal injury lawsuits.
How much am I entitled to?
The amount of money to which you are entitled in a case is based on a handful of factors. By hiring legal professionals to help you with your personal injury claim, we can calculate the total amount of your damages for you. It can be difficult to place a monetary figure on damages to your reputation, or emotional damage, but it is the legal means of reparations for these wrongs and should be a start to making amends for your suffering.
How long will the case take?
The length of time required to settle a personal injury case is based on the severity of your case and the settlements offered, among many other things. It is important that you speak with our team of attorneys so that we can evaluate your case and provide a more accurate time frame.
