Without a background in law, understanding the confusing legal jargon and areas of ambiguity that arise in your case can be a challenge. or. Below, we have answers to some common questions we receive.
Personal injury is a broad term. It can encompass any injury you suffer to your physical person. It doesn’t include damage to your reputation or property.
A personal injury claim is when you sue an individual or company for causing your accident. Most of the time, plaintiffs seek compensation from the insurance policy of the party at fault.
While every case is different, we generally use these steps to seek compensation:
We’re able to adapt our process to each individual client. We keep you in the loop throughout the entire process. Our team is available to answer any questions you have and explain legal processes you may be unfamiliar with.
Our primary focus is on handling your personal injury claim. However, we’ll manage property damage claims that result from your accident as a courtesy to you.
On average, people working with a personal injury attorney received a settlement that is 3.5x larger (Insurance Research Council “Attorney involvement in auto injury claims,” 2014) than if they had filed a claim on their own. That’s more money you can use to get the treatment you need, make up lost wages, or help you manage your pain and suffering. When you’re filing a claim on your own or with an inexperienced attorney, the insurance company might try to pressure you into settling for less than what you need. We don’t let that happen.
Our attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, which means we are not paid by the hour. Instead, we receive a percentage of your court settlement, but only if you win. We understand that our clients are already struggling with their medical bills, so we are on your side. A contingency fee aligns our goals with yours; we want to get you the most money possible for your case. We won’t brush you off or make you feel less important like an attorney who requires an hourly fee would. Once we successfully resolve your claim, we’ll take a percentage of your settlement as our fee. If we cannot resolve your claim, you don’t owe us anything, and we’ll cover all court costs. Period.
Yes, you can settle a personal injury claim without an attorney. However, you have to ask yourself if it is worth the effort and if you can get the best payout possible.
If you are working with your insurance company or a private corporation to receive compensation for an accident, then you may be able to work with these entities individually. However, the goal of insurance companies, private businesses, and even individual homeowners is to pay you the smallest amount possible. They don’t have your best interests in mind and are only focused on the funds. Even your own insurance company might pressure you for a quick settlement, not because it’s in your best interest but because it’s in theirs.
Hiring an attorney increases your knowledge base and gives you an ally to help you get the compensation you deserve. Your attorney knows how to work with insurance companies and can draft a settlement plan that makes sure you are fully covered. When companies and private parties ignore your calls, they have the legal power to get their attention. Plus, with your attorney doing the work, you can focus on recovery and returning your life to normal.
Every case is different. Some claims will reach mediation and settle within a few weeks, while other cases take more than a year before they’re completed.
In general, the more extensive your injuries and treatment, the longer the process can take since insurance companies will want to avoid paying for your damages. While we’ll always try and settle your claim quickly, we’ll take the insurance company to court if that’s what it takes to get you the settlement you deserve.
If you want to move your case forward quickly, contact a personal injury attorney shortly after the accident. The sooner you start the process, the sooner it can wrap up.
As your law firm, we represent you on a contingency fee basis and only get paid after we resolve your claim. This means that we receive a portion of the settlement. However, we don’t accept our fee until after all liens are paid.
When you’re seriously injured, you don’t have time to wait for your claim to settle before you seek treatment. Instead, your insurance can cover these costs. However, when you resolve your claim, the at-fault party’s insurance compensates you for those medical costs. If you receive a settlement for the bills your insurance company paid, they may place a lien on your settlement to get that money back. Medical liens are always paid first.
In some cases, we’re able to negotiate with your insurance company to reduce their lien. This ensures that you get as much of your settlement as possible.
If you have medical bills that you have to pay after your settlement, these are typically paid after your claim is disbursed and we receive our payment. However, we work with our clients to negotiate these bills whenever possible.
