FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Below are some frequently asked questions related to pedestrian accident cases.
Q: Do I Need To Hire A Lawyer For A Car Accident That Wasn't My Fault?
A: If you’ve been injured in an accident that was due to the negligence of another, having an experienced personal injury attorney on your side will only increase your chances of obtaining a settlement that will cover your costs and expenses.
An accident lawyer will have the ability to conduct a thorough investigation into the facts surrounding the incident and will also take care to document your injuries and other damages using medical records and bills and financial and employment records.
With this information, your accident attorney will have the ability to evaluate your claim and help you negotiate a fair settlement. Without a personal injury lawyer, you might end up accepting a settlement offer that is much lower than what you need to recover from your injuries and other damages.
To understand your options, speak with an attorney today and tell them about your case.
Q: How long does it take to settle a personal injury case?
A: Unfortunately, there is not a definitive answer to how long it will take to resolve a personal injury case. Be aware that multiple factors affect a case’s length and every case is unique. Some factors that may affect the time it takes to reach a settlement are:
- severity of one’s injury;
- liability disputes;
- insurance companies involved; and
- sum of money one may be entitled to for settlement.
Again, these are just a few factors that may speed up or slow down the time it takes to resolve a personal injury claim. Each case has different details that will impact the case length, which is why it is important to contact a personal injury attorney early on so that they are able to begin work on pursuing compensation for the injuries and losses one may be entitled to.
Q: What compensation may I seek?
A: If you were injured in an accident, the compensation you may be entitled to can include:
- medical expenses;
- future medical expenses;
- lost wages;
- future lost wages;
- loss of future earning capacity; and
- pain and suffering and emotional distress.
As this is not a definitive list, speak with an attorney to find out more about the compensation to which you may be entitled.
