  • How long does it take to resolve a personal injury claim?

    There is no way to determine an exact timeline for your personal injury case. Every personal injury case varies depending on the details of the injury. Some cases are wrapped up in a couple of months, while others take years to complete.

  • Will I have to go to trial?

    Insurance companies will do whatever they can to limit or deny the compensation you deserve for your personal injury. If your claim is challenged by insurers, you might need to take your case to trial to recover maximum compensation. An experienced lawyer can review your case and build a strategy that can help you avoid the hassle of going to trial.

  • Why do I need an attorney?
    A skilled lawyer can help move your case along faster because they can assist with the investigation process by collecting police reports, photographs, witness testimony, and medical records to support your injury claim. An attorney can also seek out an accident reconstructionist or medical expert to help establish what caused the accident and your injuries.
  • What is a demand letter?

    The demand letter states your case and preliminary argument for liability and damages. The party you are suing can either reject the demand, negotiate a new offer, or accept it as is. If the opposing party accepts the terms of your offer, you will be awarded financial compensation without having to go to trial.

  • How much is my personal injury case worth?

    Although it is impossible to determine how much your case is worth, courts generally use the following factors to assign value to a personal injury case:

    • The total cost of your medical treatment
    • How much income you lost due to your injuries
    • Whether your injuries are permanent or not
