When should I contact a personal injury attorney?
You should contact a personal injury attorney whenever you are caused to sustain significant physical injuries or psychological injuries to maximize your recovery. Contact a personal injury attorney if you need legal advice and for help to find the best course of action for your own unique situation.
How much is it to hire a personal injury attorney?
Most personal injury attorneys do not charge upfront fees or costs. Generally, fees are assessed on a contingency basis after your case is resolved.
Can I hire another personal injury attorney if I already have one?
Yes, it is always your option to change attorneys if you are not satisfied with your current one.
Do I have to go to court if I have a personal injury attorney?
No, not necessarily. But, it may be necessary to obtain the maximum value of your case.
How long will my case take?
Rarely will an attorney know how long it will take to resolve your case because it is largely dependent on how long it takes for you to recover, or how long it takes for you to obtain a new normal. Contact your attorney to see how your case is moving along.
What are the Statues of Limitation for my case?
Typically in a personal injury case, the statute of limitation is two years. Within those two years, if a case does not settle, a suit will follow and your case will go into litigation. There are many exceptions to the general two-year rule. Contact an attorney immediately upon sustaining injuries to determine the statues of limitation for your particular case.
When should I settle my case?
When you and your attorney agree that the settlement offer is reasonable in relation to the damages you sustained.
