Frequently Asked Questions

  1. An accident attorney has advanced knowledge of your legal rights to maximize the amount of compensation you are entitled to receive under the law.
  2. An accident attorney has investigative abilities to help prove liability against the at-fault party and hold them accountable for your damages.
  3. An accident attorney has top-notch negotiation skills to help facilitate a fair settlement with the insurance companies that includes monetary compensation for: medical bills, lost wages, out-of-pocket expenses, pain and suffering, future medical treatment, etc.
  4. An accident attorney handles all communications and paperwork with the insurance companies to allow you to focus on your recovery.
  5. An accident attorney can help provide recommendations for medical providers and treatments to aid in your recovery.
  6. An accident attorney has essential courtroom experience to help navigate the complicated and confusing process of filing a lawsuit and taking your case to court.
  7. An accident attorney charges a contingency fee, which means they do not charge a fee unless there is a recovery, at which point they simply charge a set percentage of whatever settlement they obtained. No hourly fee, no out-of-pocket costs, etc.
  1. I only need to hire an attorney for serious injuries or accidents. Because we live in an adversarial system, the insurance company will scrutinize your injuries, whether they be minor or major, and try to low-ball you in settlement negotiations. Additionally, when the accident first occurs you may not realize how serious your injuries actually are and may accept a settlement that does not fully compensate you; that is why it is important to hire an attorney right away.
  2. Personal injury cases take a long time. In reality, the time it takes to recover compensation will vary from case to case. Different factors can affect the timeline of your personal injury claim, including the severity of your injuries, the amount of insurance coverage available, and whether responsibility for the accident is at issue. If you finished treating your injuries and the other party has accepted liability for your injuries, your personal injury claim might be settled in just a few months. Of course, more complex personal injury claims will take longer to resolve.
  3. Hiring an attorney is too expensive. Personal injury attorneys typically represent injured clients on a contingency fee basis. That means the client doesn’t pay any money up-front to their attorney. Instead, the attorney is paid only after obtaining compensation for their client. If they don’t get you any money, they don’t get paid.
  4. I don’t need an attorney if I have insurance. Insurance companies make money by paying as little as possible on claims, even if it is your own insurance company, so they will do everything in their power to question your injuries. Personal injury attorneys are the “checks and balances” against the insurance companies to hold them accountable. When you hire a personal injury attorney, it shows the insurance companies that you are serious about your claim.
  5. All personal injury cases go to court. Actually, only a very small fraction of personal injury cases got to court. The vast majority of them are resolved through a settlement.
  6. I don’t need to hire an attorney right away. The sooner you hire an attorney, the better. They will be able to advise you early on in the process about the steps you should take to maximize your recovery. In addition, there are statute of limitations that require you to resolve your personal injury case before a certain time. If you do not give your attorney enough time to properly handle the case before that statute of limitations expires, you will jeopardize your rights and compensation.
  7. Personal injury attorneys are greedy. Because personal injury attorneys normally represent clients on a contingency fee basis, their interests are aligned with the interests of their clients. The attorney gets paid only when their client gets paid, and the attorney makes more money if they win more money for their client. In reality, most personal injury attorneys genuinely care about their clients’ well-being and want to help with their clients’ physical and emotional recovery in any way they can.
