ANSWERS TO FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I need a lawyer?
You are entitled to assert a legal claim for damages arising from an automobile accident if you have been injured in the accident (or if your vehicle was damaged). Regardless of how simple or minor an accident appears, the handling of your legal claim can be complex and will likely involve complicated legal issues. Without the assistance of an experienced injury lawyer, you will be at a disadvantage when dealing with an insurance representative and will be jeopardizing the true full value of your claim. Because our firm offers free consultations, you have nothing to risk by discussing your claim with him to decide if you want us to help you.
How much will my claim be worth?
Every claim arising from an automobile accident, even those claims arising from the same accident, have different legal values. The variables that affect a claim’s value include the type of injuries sustained (including whether any injury is permanent), the amount of medical bills (past and future), the amount of wage loss (past and future), and pain and suffering (past and future). After these variables have been sufficiently explored, our firm will be able to provide an estimate of the range of value for your claim.
How long will it take to resolve my claim?
Our firm will prosecute your claim as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, some factors (such as the response times from insurance companies) are outside our control and, as a result, there is no way to accurately predict how long it will take to resolve any automobile accident claim. Some claims can be resolved in a relatively short time (weeks or months). Other claims take longer to resolve. Regardless of how long it takes to resolve your claim, Keith will represent you aggressively throughout the life of your claim.
Will a lawsuit have to be filed?
In many instances, we are able to resolve automobile accident claims without the need to file a lawsuit. In some instances (such as where the insurance company is not willing to voluntarily pay the full value of your claim), however, it may be necessary to file a lawsuit in order to pursue your full legal rights. Even if a lawsuit is filed, most claims are settled before a trial is necessary.
What will I have to do if I hire you to represent me?
One main advantage to hiring us is that our support staff will handle all the paperwork and communication, taking that hassle away from you. While handling your claim, we will periodically need to speak with you to obtain information from you and to stay updated on your medical and work status. If a lawsuit is necessary, you may have to give a sworn statement (called a deposition). In that instance, we will meet with you in advance and prepare you for the statement. We will then attend the statement with you. If the case is not settled before trial, you will need to attend the trial and testify. Overall, we will keep your time involvement to a minimum.
