Read on to learn the answers to frequently asked questions about personal injury claims.

Should I call the police after an accident?

Yes. You will need full documentation of the accident for insurance and possible legal reasons.

Why should I consider a personal injury claim?

If you are injured due to the negligence of someone else, you are entitled to full and fair compensation for your injuries. This compensation can help you pay medical and rehabilitation bills now and in the future. Since you do not know what the future holds, you must prepare for more medical bills if your injuries cause more expenses in the future.

Can I reach a settlement with the other party's insurance company on my own?

If the insurance company wants to talk to you, seek help from an experienced personal injury attorney. The insurance company's interests are not always your best interests. Many times, the company will send a representative who is ready to write you a check on the spot.

Do not sign anything without discussing your situation with an attorney who is highly skilled at assessing and representing personal injury cases. Our main goal is to get the damages you need to recover and heal.

What happens if I'm injured while driving for my job?

If you are injured while driving a semi truck or any other vehicle for work, you may be able to file a third-party lawsuit in addition to receiving workers' compensation. You may want to discuss this situation with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney to determine the legal steps needed.

What is the value of my case?

The value of a personal injury takes into consideration many individual circumstances such as:

  • Seriousness and permanency of injuries
  • Amount of medical treatment needed now and in the future
  • Lost income and wage-earning capacity
  • Liability of the negligent person

Our collaborative team of attorneys will fully assess your case and offer options that will give you an idea of what your case is worth. We can advocate for you for the financial compensation you need to move past this difficult time.
