How long will my case take to resolve?

It really depends on the unique circumstances of each case, but generally personal injury cases are measured in months. Having an experienced attorney handling your case can ensure you receive the most efficient resolution.

What compensation am I entitled to for my injuries?

Again this will depend on the specifics of your individual case, but personal injury cases often seek financial compensation for damages such as:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost earnings
  • Property damage
  • Lost enjoyment of life
  • Lost future earnings

Who pays for a personal injury settlement or verdict?

Financial resources will come via the insurance company. Personal injury claims don't directly go after the negligent driver or other negligent party, they go after their insurance provider.

What if the other driver didn't have insurance? What about hit-and-run?

You can still collect, but it's more complicated. In these situations it is important to have an insurance policy that provides uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.

Do I need to see a doctor?

Yes, for two reasons. 1. You need to make sure your injuries are treated properly to give you the best chance at making a full physical recovery so you can enjoy the rest of your life. 2. You need a record of treatment so we can demonstrate exactly how the injury has affected you and your family.

If you cannot afford a doctor, we can help you make arrangements to be treated under the premise that your doctor will be reimbursed once your case settles or a verdict is rendered.
