Frequently Asked Questions From Recent Clients

Do you charge for a consultation?
At The Personal Injury Pros, we never charge for an initial consultation. We will discuss the details of your potential case and the legal process, answering any questions you may have.
What Type of Case Is Personal Injury?
A personal injury falls within the realm of civil cases rather than criminal ones, where conviction and imprisonment are possible outcomes. In a civil lawsuit, the responsible party may be found liable, leading to financial compensation for the victim. Personal injury cases encompass various situations such as car accidents, slip and falls, and accidents involving defective products.
What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?
A personal injury lawyer is not only for taking cases to court. A lawyer can handle every legal process your claim involves on your behalf. Most personal injury claims do not need to go to trial. Instead, your lawyer will negotiate a settlement offer that is fair to you with the insurance company involved.
How Much Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?
Unfortunately, it is not possible to say exactly how much your case is worth without you first discussing your circumstances with an attorney. Insurance companies and the civil courts may award compensation to injury victims according to the unique specifications of each case. A lawyer from our personal injury law firm will assess your case and let you know if we believe you have grounds for a lawsuit. If so, we may be able to help you prove your case and achieve fair compensation.
How Much Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?

At The Personal Injury Pros, your injury lawyer will not cost you anything unless we are successful in obtaining a financial award. Our law firm operates on a contingency fee basis for all personal injury claims. We only charge our clients for our services if we win their claims, and only then out of the award won. You will pay your attorney directly out of your settlement or judgment award rather than out of your pocket.

How Long Do I Have To File a Personal Injury Claim?
You do not have an endless amount of time in which to file a personal injury claim. Depending on where the injury occurred, if you have a lawsuit, you must file the correct paperwork by the state’s deadline where the event took place. The legal term for this deadline is the statute of limitations. Most states have a statute of limitations of two years for most personal injury claims, your attorney will consult with you on the timelines associated with your personal injury claim.
I think I was partly responsible for my injuries. Do I still have a case?
Yes, even those who may have been negligent can still have a case. Admitting fault, however, could hurt your compensation. Talk to our personal injury lawyers if you’re concerned about your part in your personal injury claim.
Will the information shared with you be confidential?
Absolutely, with 100% confidence. Any information disclosed to us enjoys the safeguard of attorney-client privilege, ensuring its confidentiality. This protection persists beyond the conclusion of our legal representation or in the event that you choose not to retain our firm. Full disclosure of all facts pertinent to your personal injury case is crucial, enabling us to provide optimal representation and preempt any potential legal complications.
Will I have to go to court if I hire an attorney?
Not necessarily; not every personal injury case goes to trial. That being said, you may be required to attend various hearings and legal proceedings. For the most part, however, your attorney will handle the vast majority of case preparation, settlement negotiations, and pre-trial planning. If the liable insurance party refuses to offer a fair settlement, your case may proceed to trial. If this happens, you will likely need to be present at certain courtroom proceedings.
What is the difference between settling and litigating a Personal Injury case?

Reaching a settlement implies mutual agreement between you, the injured party, the insurer, and other responsible parties, without court intervention. Such agreements typically include a lump sum payment, predetermined to cover both economic and non-economic damages.

In contrast, when cases proceed to trial, it involves litigation. Attorneys from each side present evidence before a jury in court, elucidating the circumstances of your personal injury case. The jury is then tasked with determining liability and potential damages.
