Personal Injury FAQ
If you are looking for answers to your questions regarding your injury and filing your lawsuit, you've come to the right place. Our injury lawyers provide answers to frequently asked personal injury questions:
Do I have to accept the settlement the insurance company offers me? No, you do not. If your insurance company (or someone else's) has offered you a settlement, you should first confer with an injury attorney to ensure that the settlement you are being offered is a fair one and will actually cover all of the costs of your injury, not just medical bills! Contact our firm to learn more.
What type of compensation can I receive for my injuries? When filing a personal injury lawsuit, you may be eligible to request compensation for any of the following:
- Medical expenses; whether past, current, or future
- Lost wages if you were required to take time off work to heal
- Pain and suffering
- Punitive damages if the negligence leading to your injury was egregious
If you wish to file a lawsuit on behalf of a deceased loved one, you may be eligible to additional compensation including: loss of companionship/consortium, wrongful death, etc.
How long does it take to resolve a personal injury lawsuit? This question is difficult to answer because it depends predominantly on what type of injuries you sustained and the type of compensation you are seeking to recover. More high-stakes cases can take several years to resolve, whereas a more straightforward case may be resolved in a manner of months.
