Examples Of Questions That We Are Asked
Having handled personal injury cases for years in California, we have been asked any and all questions that our clients can possibly think of. We are always happy to answer them. However, there are some questions that are at the forefront of our clients’ minds:
How long will my case take?
This is something that is dependent on the aspects of each individual case. However, your lawyer may be able to provide you with a general idea of how long your case may take once all the details have been examined.
What is my case worth?
Again, this is something that is completely unique to each and every case. Talking with your attorney may help you understand the possibility of obtaining compensation in your case and how much you can potentially get. Typically, you can seek a recovery for your property damage, medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
What is the claims process?
Seeking compensation after an accident is handled through the filing of a claim of damages. It is called a claim, as we are most likely dealing with the negligent party’s insurance company. It may be possible to settle the claim out of court through negotiation, though the claim may need to be heard in court to ensure proper resolution.
Who is liable for the accident?
There is often one negligent party in an accident case, such as in a car accident. However, through careful examination of the case it may become evident that another party, such as an auto part manufacturer, is also at fault for the accident. Your lawyer will review the case and determine the parties against whom claims will be filed.
