Who Is Going To Pay Up Front For All Of The Costs And Expenses Of My Case?
Costs must be advanced during the case to hire experts, conduct discovery and prepare for trial. We advance all costs and we say so in our retainer agreement. The client is responsible for reimbursing the costs when the case settles. If we don’t recover money for you, you will owe nothing.
What Happens If We Lose The Case?
You are not responsible for any fees or costs.
What Is The Value Of My Case?
Because every case is unique and different, it is impossible to tell immediately how much money, if any, you will recover in connection with your case. In cases of serious injury, the ultimate recovery is often related to the amount of insurance coverage available, the nature, extent, and duration of your injuries, and the assessment of liability. We feel it is our primary duty to obtain an amount of money that will fairly and justly compensate you for your injuries. We will make every effort to do this by locating all sources of money. We will advise you of our evaluation in this regard. More information on this website @ https://caraccidentattorneysa.com/
In general, most states allow recovery of damages for the following elements of damage:
The nature and extent of the injury, including whether the injury is permanent, and the amount of disability.
Medical expenses, including past bills and future expenses that are reasonably considered to be incurred. This may include mileage to and from the doctor or hospital.
Wage loss, past, and future and loss of capacity to earn a living.
Pain and suffering, including your motor vehicle and other items of personal property.
Loss of consortium for your spouse, past, and future.
Why Does It Take So Long To File A Claim?
We cannot make your claim until after the doctors have given us reports stating exactly what your medical condition is and what they expect it to be in the future: in other words, until you have reached “maximum medical improvements”. Many times the doctors will be very slow in making these reports. We may even, on occasion, ask you to contact your doctor to speed up this report.
If we try to settle your case before your medical condition is stabilized, you may lose money that you might be entitled to for a condition that did not show up until after your case was settled. It is important to know that your case will not be settled until the damages have been determined and all investigations to determine who is liable have been completed.
It generally takes several months to gather the necessary information. If a trial becomes necessary, it can take several years to complete a case. One of the most difficult requests we make of you is to have patience. Our Law Firm will work as hard and as fast as possible to settle your case quickly.
Who Should I Talk To About My Case?
Do not discuss your accident with anyone except your attorney and your doctors. If your own insurance company wants to talk about your case before they pay your medical bills, please refer them to your attorney.
Remember that any necessary information from employers, schools, or other persons will be obtained by our Law Firm. Also, you should not sign anything for anyone else until you check with your attorney first.
What Is Uninsured/Underinsured Driver Insurance?
If you were hit by an uninsured motorist or underinsured motorist, you may be eligible for benefits under your own policy or the policy that covered the vehicle you were in. Many insurance companies have special provisions if you desire to proceed against the uninsured motorist provision of the policy. In most cases, you will be able to collect for your lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, etc., in the same way as if the driver that hit you did have insurance. We ask that you provide us with a complete copy of your own insurance policy in force at the time of the accident.
