FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Answering all of your questions to help you stay informed on all legal matters.
WHY DO I NEED AN ATTORNEY?
Sadly, most insurance companies are looking out for their own self-interests. Their goal is to complicate the claim process so that you’ll settle for less compensation. An attorney can help you fight for what you deserve.
AFTER AN ACCIDENT WHAT SHOULD I DO FIRST?
After an accident, always contact the police first. They will file a report which will prove crucial to any injury claims. You should also contact your insurance company so that you can begin to understand your coverage.
WHAT IF THE INSURANCE COMPANY IS ALREADY OFFERING TO SETTLE?
We do not recommend that any clients prematurely settle their case. Insurance companies will often offer a low settlement with a nominal amount up front. Many clients end up regretting the quick settlement later on.
HOW MUCH IS MY CASE WORTH?
As with any claim case, how much your case is worth will depend on many different factors, such as the nature, extent, and duration of your injuries, the cost of medical expenses, potential lost wages, and other details.
WHEN IS IT TOO LATE TO FILE A CLAIM?
With any injury claim, time is always of the essence. It’s never too soon to begin exploring your options, especially when certain time limits can apply to your case. The sooner you file your claim, the better.
WILL MY CASE NEED TO GO TO COURT?
Our goal is to successfully resolve all of our cases without filing a lawsuit. Unfortunately, sometimes the insurance companies refuse to make a fair settlement offer. In those cases, we may seek fair redress in court.
