Our firm’s personal injury lawyers understand that it is normal to become confused, frustrated and angry after an accident. Victims and their families often have a multitude of urgent questions and concerns, including:
- Do I need to contact a lawyer?
- Should I contact my insurance company first?
- When should I talk to another party’s insurance company?
- Can I contact the person or people who are responsible for my injuries?
- How much compensation is fair?
- What recourse do I have if a family member passed away as a result of an accident?
What is the most important thing for me to do after my injury?
Put in the simplest terms, the most important thing you can do is get healthy. Depending on the severity of your injuries, it might be challenging to return to a pre-accident state of health. It is important not to miss any appointments with your doctor or physical therapist. If your doctor has given you instructions, it is important to follow them to the letter.
What factors would cause my case to go to litigation?
There are usually several reasons why a case does not settle. It is possible that the insurance company believes that you and your lawyer have asked for more money than the company is willing to pay voluntarily for the claim. Or, perhaps the insurance company is stalling for time, hoping that you and your lawyer will reduce the value of your claim. No matter the reason, our firm will aggressively fight on your behalf from start to finish.
