Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury
- How do I know if my personal injury claim can win?
You can never guarantee or know for certain that a personal injury claim will “win” or end with a settlement or verdict in your favor. Although, you can get a better idea if your claim is legally valid by teaming up with a local personal injury attorney like those at our firm. We can assess the details of your case, including evidence you have regarding liability. Our goal when working on your case will be to maximize the compensation that you can receive from the liable party or parties.
- What damages am I entitled to?
Damages in a personal injury claim are what justify the compensation paid to you by the liable party. Depending on how you were injured and the consequences of those injuries, the damages you can seek in your claim could include medical bills, lost wages, and property repair costs. You can also be compensated for your pain, suffering, and hardships caused by your newly onset disabilities.
- How long will it take to settle my claim?
Your personal injury claim could take several months to reach a settlement. When our attorneys are working on your case, we will do what we can to remove unnecessary delays to get the settlement to you sooner than later. When there are no obstacles in the way, you could see your first settlement check within 4 or 5 months of your accident. If liability or damages are contested, though, then the total amount of time required could go up noticeably. Sometimes settlements take more than a year to reach, so it is important to work with a law firm that keeps you up to speed on key updates and decisions.
- Do all personal injury claims go to trial?
It is actually uncommon for a personal injury claim to escalate to a lawsuit that goes to trial. Most legitimate claims will be settled before a lawsuit is filed, or shortly after it is filed but before litigation begins. Insurance companies tend to want to keep their business out of the public view to protect their reputations. Settlements allow for confidentiality whereas trials do not.
- How are personal injury settlements paid to claimants?
Personal injury settlements are typically paid out in lump-sum settlement amounts. When accepting a lump-sum settlement, you will be paid all the owed compensation at once. But there will also likely be a clause in the agreement that states you cannot demand further damages from the same defendant for the same injury or accident, even if your condition worsens later. To avoid this blockage of future damages, some personal injury settlements are paid periodically with the option to adjust the amount owed later through more legal processes. However, this is rare, and the vast majority of settlements are lump-sum payments.
- What are the benefits of hiring a personal injury lawyer?
Hiring a personal injury attorney has many benefits that you can’t get otherwise. Specifically, if you allow your lawyer to act on your behalf throughout your case, then all of their knowledge, insight, and practice experience essentially becomes your own. Just by having someone else handling all the corners and details of your case, you will likely feel an immediate sense of relief and peace of mind. Most people decide they want to hire a personal injury attorney just because they don’t want to deal with insurance companies themselves.
- What is considered a personal injury?
A personal injury that can be answered with a claim or lawsuit is technically any type of harm that you suffer due to the negligence or intentional wrongdoing of another party. Physical injuries are the most obvious and common forms of personal injuries cited in claims. However, similar claims can also be filed exclusively for mental anguish and emotional trauma. Furthermore, even financial harm alone can justify a civil injury claim, especially in business litigation settings.
