Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

Who do I sue for my injuries in a car accident case?
Claims for car accidents are usually made against the insurance companies for the owners and operators of the vehicles involved in the car accident. Sometimes a driver’s employer, a business entity or other party may need to be added to the claim and future lawsuit. Make sure that all of the proper parties are made part of your case so that you receive the compensation that you are entitled to.
How Do I Make an Accident Report from a Construction Accident?
If you suffered injuries in a construction accident, you must report the accident to your foreman or employer, but there are other steps you also must take if you hope to receive compensation for your injury. First things first! If you have been hurt, seek medical care and attention immediately. If you need an ambulance, ask for one to be called. Your construction foreman may or may not be aware of your accident. Do not assume they received word of the incident. Even if you verbally told your co-worker about it, this notification will not always help you if your employer does not have actual knowledge of your construction accident. Want to learn more about how to make an accident report? Read our full article here.
How Much Can I obtain from a Car Accident Settlement?
Several factors influence the amount you might obtain from a car accident settlement. The seriousness of your injury plays a significant role in determining this amount, as it affects your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and many other types of damages. The amount of insurance coverage available plays another significant part in the outcome of your settlement. Of course, a lawyer’s experience building personal injury cases, handling insurance companies, and negotiating fair settlements is yet another important consideration in this equation. Want to learn more about car accident settlements? Read our full article here.
What is the Average Settlement for a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit?
Since medical malpractice covers such a wide variety of injuries and scenarios, there is no average settlement amount for a medical malpractice lawsuit. Furthermore, many individual factors can affect a settlement’s amount, such as the injury’s permanence and impact on your job and whether your case settles out of court. When thinking about your malpractice case, remember that it is a  personal injury with losses. Malpractice is then subcategorized into different types, each with its own area.  To learn more, please read our full article here.
What happens if I am partially at fault for my car accident?
As long as you are not 100 percent at fault for your car accident you can still recover money damages for your injuries from the other party who caused your accident. Most accidents involve some degree of comparative fault between the parties.
How does a medical malpractice lawsuit work?
Medical malpractice lawsuits usually begin with an insurance claim. Your attorney will attempt to prove your case and negotiate a settlement that covers your damages. If obtaining compensation outside of court is not an option, you can pursue a civil suit. Want to find out more? Read our full article here.
What does a personal injury lawyer do?
Personal injury lawyers help victims recover compensation for injuries and damages that someone else’s negligence caused. They do this by helping clients with insurance claims and/or civil lawsuits. Want to learn more? Read our full article here.
Should I get a lawyer for a car accident?
You can argue that the best time to hire a car accident lawyer is shortly after your accident happens. By hiring a car accident lawyer from our firm, you:
  • Protect yourself from insurance companies
  • Have a buffer between you and the parties who caused your accident
  • Reduce the risk of your rights being violated
The insurance company may try to get you to accept a low settlement offer. These offers come quickly but generally do not cover your long-term losses. A lawyer from our team will shield you from lowball settlement offers by fighting for the full scope of your damages. You can learn more by reading our full blog post here.
