Frequently Asked Questions about Injury Claims
If you’ve been hurt in an accident, it’s entirely reasonable to have questions about what will happen next. “How will I pay my medical bills?” “What happens if I can’t work and am not earning money?” “Will this accident impact the rest of my life?”
Dealing with serious or catastrophic injuries after an accident that was not your fault is hard. Reaching out to an experienced injury lawyer for help shouldn’t be.
The trial lawyers with Attorney Tom are here to answer all of our client’s questions and provide the highest-quality legal counsel possible. Call us to discuss your specific situation, and read a few of these frequently asked questions below:
You should contact an attorney as soon as possible after an injury accident. While your first step should be to seek medical treatment, the next step should be to protect your rights by hiring an attorney.
Because the statute of limitations for filing an injury claim will vary from state to state, it is vital to talk to a lawyer as soon as possible to learn about your legal options and make sure that you don’t miss any crucial deadlines.
Investigating the accident, building a case, negotiating with insurance companies, and doing all of the legal legwork on an injury case takes time. You’ll want to give your lawyer plenty of time to build the best possible case on your behalf, so don’t delay in seeking quality representation.
Each case is different, and the length of time yours will take will depend on several different factors. The circumstances surrounding the accident and your injuries, the parties involved, and the damages you are seeking will all play a vital role in determining how long the process takes.
During your initial consultation, our lawyers will try to give you an idea of how long it might take to resolve your case, based on our evaluation of your situation.
A statute of limitation is a state law that sets a strict time limit on the amount of time people have to file a personal injury lawsuit in court after an accident. All states have specific deadlines for filing, which can range from one to six years, depending on the state. These are very strict deadlines, and if you don’t file your case in time, the court will refuse to hear it.
We work on a contingency fee basis, which means that you’ll never pay any upfront fees for us to represent you. We’ll take on your case at no charge, and we’ll only collect when we secure compensation for you.
