Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Law
When you have been injured in an accident, you may have a number of questions. Here are our answers to the most common.
Which Of My Expenses Can Be Covered?
While this depends on the case, you could be entitled to compensation for a number of different challenges that have resulted from your injury. This includes your current medical costs but can also include the cost of future medical care required to care for your injuries, lost wages from time away from work, damage to your property, and the impact that your pain and suffering have had on your life.
The amount that you will receive also depends on the case. Your attorney will work with you to understand your needs fully and ensure that those needs are fully considered.
When Should I Contact An Attorney?
It is best to contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after your accident. This ensures that necessary evidence and witness statements can be accounted for and that your medical needs are documented. It also allows your attorney to ensure that you don’t lose the ability to pursue your case because of the statute of limitations on your case.
Isn’t It Expensive To Hire A Lawyer?
It doesn’t have to be expensive to explore your legal options. Many law firms – including Law Office of Ada M. Barreto, P.A. – offer no-cost consultations to help you choose the best course of action for your case.
