Frequently Asked Questions About Injury And Disability Claims

Clients who come to our office are usually unfamiliar with how personal injury claims work. Our lawyers are ready to answer your questions. But before you come in for a free consultation, you may want to read about some of the more frequently asked questions we receive.

Do I have a claim?

This is not a simple question to answer. It will depend on a number of factors, such as where you were hurt, who was responsible, how badly you were hurt and whether the insurance companies are treating you fairly.

How much will the lawsuit cost?

If you win nothing, it will not cost you anything. At the end of your case, if we win you compensation, we will be paid out of what you are awarded. The payment will cover our work and any expenses related to gathering evidence, such as testimony from witnesses, and doctors.

Can I be compensated for loss of income, rehabilitation, psychotherapy, etc.?

There are some expenses that you should be compensated for regardless of how the accident happened and regardless of your particular insurance policy. For other expenses and losses, we will need to take a careful look at your policy and the circumstances of your case.

Can I sue for pain and suffering?

Yes, in certain circumstances. However, there is a legislated deductible. We can help you determine the strength of your case and whether this type of damage is worth pursuing.

How long will the lawsuit take?

When you come in, we will discuss your situation and your priorities. The length of the process often depends on how long it takes for you to recover, how complicated your case is, and how important quick resolution is to you.

Will I have to spend a lot of time in court?

Most of the work — including attendance in court — will be done by our firm. You may have to come in for mediation or to talk to the lawyers from the other side. Most cases are settled before getting to court.

Do I have the right to challenge a denied disability insurance claim?

Yes. Our firm can guide you through this process — either for a long-term disability claim

Will I be successful?

That will depend on the seriousness of your injuries and the amount of evidence you have on your side. It also depends on your lawyer being able to see what the most successful arguments will be in your particular case.

What can I do to help my case?

Most of the time, your job is to focus on your own recovery, but you can help make success more likely.
