Settlement Questions

Best Personal Injury Lawyer 

Being a victim in a personal injury case can be life changing to say the least. If you are involved in a matter caused by the negligence of another party and this matter leads to harm or injury, it is always wise to seek medical attention first. After seeking preliminary medical attention, you may require other treatments for injuries, such as chiropractic or physical therapy. However, after seeking medical attention and receiving medical bills you may have several questions. Such as, “is the person who did this to me going to be held responsible?”. And that is a fair question. These questions are not best directed to your medical professional, and not even law enforcement or witnesses. These questions are better directed to a lawyer that specializes in personal injury related cases. While you do have questions, you may not always know what questions to ask. The best personal injury lawyer, The Lynch Law Group, has provided a list of questions you may have and should ask if you do not have them yet.

Do you think I should pursue a personal injury claim at all?

Always. It costs you nothing to file a claim with a personal injury attorney. Should someone else be at fault for your injuries, they should be held responsible. Due to this responsibility, you are eligible to pursue a personal injury claim and see that financial burdens are compensated. The insurance companies will investigate the allegations in an attempt to negotiate the fees due to you. You can be compensated for damages.

Is there a limit to how much I can get in a settlement?

There is no limit. Every case is different but the settlement amount is based on several things: the injuries, the bills accumulated due to the injuries, how serious the injuries are, any loss of income, the possibility of your earning capabilities changing or being affected, the change this injury or incident has made on your life.

What can I expect during a deposition?

To be asked several questions some related to and some not related to your case. Such as if there were witnesses, did you have any pre-existing injuries or illnesses, have you filed a claim with your insurance company, how has your life been affected by this? And so on.

When can I expect to settle my claim?

This varies as well. Usual statute of limitations in personal injury claims is two years, but this is only to file a lawsuit. Insurance companies like to either conclude the case fast to get it over with and lowball you. Or, they will drag it out because no agreement can be made. This is why it is important to keep a record of every detail of the accident and how it has affected you, this includes photos, journal entries, medical records, and even witnesses. The more information you have, the better. The more evidence you have, the more likely you are to settle sooner.
