Frequently Asked Questions

We understand that many injury victims and their families have a number of questions after an accident. To help answer some of the most frequently asked law questions, our lawyers have compiled this personal injury law FAQ.

What Does a Personal Injury Attorney Do?2020-12-23T07:12:44-08:00

A personal injury attorney provides legal representation for someone who has been injured as the result of negligence by another person or a company. Many people don’t want to hire a personal injury attorney because they don’t want to file a lawsuit. In 9 out of 10 cases no lawsuit is necessary because we are able to pressure and convince the insurance company to pay a fair settlement amount. However, there are many other reasons to hire a lawyer in addition to handling your insurance claim if you have been injured.

Personal injury attorneys work to protect your legal rights. For example, if you are filing an insurance claim, there are things you must declare in order for your claim to be paid. Your attorney will help you file your insurance claim correctly and work with your insurance company to have your bills paid in a timely fashion.
At Henness & Haight, we go a step beyond. Here are just a few of the ways we do that:

    • Our team has excellent relationships with local medical professionals who specialize in treating personal injury cases. We will help you get the medical care you need while ensuring top-notch legal representation. Even if you don’t have health insurance, we get you care from the best doctors and specialists. What’s more, we will monitor that care and review all of your medical records.
    • We will deal with your insurance company directly so you don’t have to. It is critical that you have an attorney speak to claim representatives. Here’s why. Insurance companies love to speak to people who are unrepresented because they are trained to get you to say things out of context that can be used against you to help them pay less for your claim. By having us deal with your claim, you can focus on getting better and not worry about the many calls and forms involved.
    • If necessary, we will visit the scene of the accident to take pictures, interview witnesses, and obtain statements among other activities to support your case. We will gather all reports, obtain digital or video recordings, and in some cases, hire an accident reconstruction engineer. We help preserve important evidence from the scene to assist your case.
    • When you have automobile damages or other property damage, we will help you get estimates and negotiate a fair settlement for replacement or repair costs.
    • Our team is on hand to keep you informed of any developments and we’re always ready to answer any questions you might have.
    • We’re 100% on your side and we will negotiate for a fair settlement. When necessary, we will threaten litigation to pressure the insurance company into paying you a fair and just settlement.
      This is just the tip of the iceberg. We’d love a chance to discuss your case and how we are going to help you in ways that other personal injury firms can’t.

Plus, with Henness & Haight, we promise that no fee will be charged if there is no recovery. If we do recover damages for you, we promise that your portion of any pre-lawsuit settlement will be equal to or greater than our fee, even if we must reduce our fee to make sure that happens.

What to Look for When Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer?2020-12-23T07:13:22-08:00

Do I Need A Personal Injury Attorney?2020-12-23T07:14:02-08:00

This is a common question for many people after they’ve been injured. Too often, we see people who place faith in the insurance companies and expect that they can handle their claim on their own. Then, when an insurance company refuses to pay a claim, or wants to settle for much less than what’s owed, they worry that it’s too late to hire an attorney.

If you are wondering if you need a personal injury attorney, it’s likely the answer is yes. Calling us is free and it doesn’t hurt to check with a professional. If your claim doesn’t need an attorney, you can trust us to point you in the right direction.

If you have been injured, or you have a loved one who was injured or killed in an accident or due to negligence, please call us. We’ll evaluate your case for free and you’re under no obligation to work with us.

If you have been in an automobile accident and the accident was not your fault and you were not cited for the accident, call us immediately. We will move quickly to protect your interests. You can bet that the opposing party’s insurance company will be working quickly to protect theirs, especially if they were working for a large company such as Amazon, FedEx, or Uber. Don’t delay calling an attorney if you were injured under these circumstances.

We handle workers compensation cases for those who are injured on the job, even if you are a union worker. Many times, unions will refer you to an attorney but please understand that you are under no obligation to work with that union lawyer. We are able to represent union workers in their workers compensation cases.

Many people are concerned that when hiring a personal injury attorney that the damages they recover simply go towards paying
attorney fees. At Henness & Haight, we promise no fees unless we obtain a recovery for you. Plus, we also promise that your portion of any pre-lawsuit settlement will be equal to or greater than our fee, even if we must reduce our fee to make sure that happens. We’ll put our guarantee in writing when you hire us.

How Much Is A Personal Injury Attorney?2020-12-22T12:08:45-08:00

You will pay no fees for a consultation on your case. If we agree to take on your case, we make you a no fee guarantee. This means that we’ll only be paid if you’re paid. What’s more, we’ll guarantee that your portion of any settlement received will be equal to or greater than our fee.

In many cases, insurance companies must pay for legal costs as part of the claim. This means your settlement won’t be reduced by our charges. We promise that your portion of any pre-lawsuit settlement will be equal to or greater than our fee, even if we must reduce our fee to make sure that happens. And, we put that guarantee in writing when you hire us.

If I Hire A Personal Injury Attorney, Does That Mean Filing A Lawsuit?2020-12-22T12:08:45-08:00

Most personal injury cases do not end up in a lawsuit. In fact, over 90% of all personal injury cases resolve well before a lawsuit is ever filed. You still need a personal injury attorney though to make sure your rights are protected and the insurance company meets their obligations. The best personal injury law firms protect your rights in court as a way of keeping the insurance companies from treating you unfairly. Most of the time, however, just the threat of litigation is enough to make them do the right thing before a lawsuit is ever filed.

Because Henness & Haight is well-known and because we have an experienced and knowledgeable group of attorneys, when we do recommend filing suit, 99% of the time the insurance company will agree to settle well before any trial. That’s because our reputation precedes us and we have proven time and time again that our cases are valid and well-litigated. They now know that it will cost them much more to proceed to trial than it would for them to simply pay what’s fair.

If I Pursue A Claim, Is The Lawsuit Against The Driver Or Their Insurance Company?2020-12-23T07:15:01-08:00

When you are in an accident and must file a claim, you may rightfully be concerned about the idea of suing someone or seeking money directly from the person who caused the accident or perhaps just made a mistake.

What you might not know is that personal injury attorneys rarely, if ever, seek compensation from the person who caused the accident or was negligent. Instead, personal injury attorneys pursue compensation from insurance companies or the businesses who choose to be self-insured. You don’t need to worry about causing financial harm to someone who caused your accident.

Insurance exists so that when we make a mistake, our insurance company is obligated to us and to the injured parties to make it right. At Henness & Haight, we never go after people who caused the accident or were negligent and hurt somebody. Instead, we use our expertise and experience to ensure that the insurance companies who are paid to provide coverage actually provide meaningful coverage and do the right thing for our clients and their insureds.
