Have questions about hiring a personal injury lawyer? View our Frequently Asked Questions below.
How much is my case worth?
At first there is no way to precisely know the exact value of your claim, but as you continue to treat we will be able to determine more about the severity of your injuries, total past medical bills, lost wages and future medical care, which will all go toward determining the overall value of your case.
Do I have to pay anything at the beginning?
Personal injury attorneys agree to work on your case with no money upfront. If they succeed in your case they will take a small percentage of your recovery for their legal services. Most personal injury attorneys want to work with you so you can get justice and restitution for your injuries. Your attorney should speak with you to make sure that you understand how they’re going to get paid. It’s important that you ask any questions so that you both are on the same page throughout the case.
What is the personal injury claims process?
When an at fault party injures you causing medical care and bills, your attorney can make a claim against their insurance company to reimburse you for any type of medical bills, pain and suffering and lost wages. Once treatment has been successful, your medical records and bills will be submitted as a claim to the at fault insurance company in order to try and negotiate, settle and close your claim/case in order to pay all of your past medical bills and have tax free monies for you for your future medical bills and past and future pain and suffering.
How do I know if I have a case?
