What qualifies as a personal injury case?
A personal injury can be a result of negligence on behalf of someone else, or it can be intentional wrongful or malicious conduct that results in pain or suffering. This can include mental or physical bodily damage, or anything that might prevent a person from working or experiencing the same quality of life as before.
How can a personal injury lawyer help me?
A personal injury lawyer can help you by fighting on your behalf in court to ensure you are awarded compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, loss wages, and punitive damages.
How do I know if I have a good case?
The only way to know for sure whether you have a good case is to meet with an experienced attorney, who will assess the validity of your case based on your unique circumstances. Pickard Law would be honored to assist you in making that determination.
Do I still need to pay my medical bills if I am involved in the case?
A qualified, experienced personal injury attorney can advise you on how to proceed with your medical bills. Based on your unique circumstances, you may be advised to hold off on paying your medical bills until after your case is heard in court. However, you really should speak with an attorney before making that decision.
How long will my personal injury case take?
Every personal injury case is different. The length of time it will take before your case goes to court varies depending upon the unique complexities in your case, as well as the variable in your local court system. After consultation with an attorney, you may be provided with an estimate. However, it’s important to remember that an attorney can only give you an estimate, as he/she cannot guarantee how long the process will take.
How do I know how much my personal injury case is worth?
Because no two cases are exactly the same, there really is no way to say with certainty how much any one case is worth. There are many variables to consider, including the amount of damages, who is at fault, documentation of your injuries and the accident, and whether or not you have sympathetic jurors. A qualified attorney may, however, be able to provide you with an educated guess based on his or her previous cases.
