Our Frequently Asked Personal Injury Questions
At Adler Law Group, LLC, we understand how complicated the personal injury claims process can feel for you. You never expected to suffer a serious injury, but here you are — and you do not know what to do. To help you, we have compiled a list of our most frequently asked questions regarding personal injuries.
Will I have to pay money out of pocket?
Our firm works on contingency. This means that you will not pay us anything unless you win. If we recover compensation for you, we will collect a percentage of the recovery.
How long does the claims process take?
Every case is different. The duration of a case depends on several complex factors, including the type of accident you experienced and the number of parties involved. Even though you may want to resolve your case as soon as possible, you don’t want to rush it. Insurance companies will try to rush you to settle your case.
Recovering maximum compensation may require lengthy arbitration or litigation. You could face an even worse situation down the road if you need long-term treatment, but your settlement wasn’t enough to cover it
What damages can I seek?
The term “damages” refers to a sum paid from the defendant to the plaintiff. In a personal injury case, you could recover damages, including:
- Hospital bills
- Rehabilitation and other treatment
- Lost wages
- Auto repairs
- Pain and suffering
What if I can’t work because of my injury?
Accidents can hinder your ability to work. You may also need to take time off work for medical appointments or rehabilitation. To recover your lost income, you may need to seek monetary compensation for lost wages. If the accident left you permanently or temporarily disabled, you may also need to seek Social Security benefits.
Can I handle my case without a lawyer?
You have the right to work with the other party, their lawyers and the insurance companies on your own. But an attorney can mean the difference between a lowball settlement and the maximum compensation available to you. At Adler Law Group, LLC, our lawyers have helped countless clients in Connecticut navigate the complex legal system and recover large settlements or verdicts.
