Personal Injury FAQs

Q

Do I Have A Personal Injury Claim?

Answer: One of the primary ways that personal injury claims are resolved is through the determination of whether someone else's negligence contributed to your injuries. A person can be negligent if they do something that a reasonable person would not do or if they failed to do something that a reasonable person would do. If that action or failure to act contributed to your injuries, then you may have a claim. If you are unsure whether you have a claim, consider talking to a lawyer to learn more. Many firms — including the Law Office of Shane R. Kadlec — offer no-cost consultations to discuss a potential case with you.

Q

What Happens to My Personal Injury Claim if I Am Denied?

Answer: It may seem like this is the end of your claim, but you may be able to appeal the decision if your claim is denied. An attorney can help you file an appeal in the days after the decision has been made, but it is important to appeal quickly, because there is a statute of limitations for the appeals process.

Q

What Should I Do if My Insurer Offers a Settlement?

Answer: First, contact an attorney. Having a lawyer review the offer before you accept it is an important way to ensure that the insurance company isn't offering a sum that is too low to aid you in recovery. This is especially important for catastrophic injuries, because they can require long-term medical care, and they may prevent you from earning a similar salary to what you earned before the accident.

Q

How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

Answer: Most personal injury cases are handled on a contingency fee basis, which means that an attorney's payment is dependent on the success of the case, and they are paid nothing unless they win. If your case does succeed, then payment varies depending on how much compensation you are awarded, the facts of your case, and its complexity.

Q

What Should I Look for When Hiring an Attorney?

Answer: One of the first things that you should look for is experience working personal injury cases. This knowledge is a great asset when an attorney is guiding you through the process of filing a claim and can be key to courtroom success if negotiation is unsuccessful. One marker for this is board-certification in personal injury law, which shows a higher level of experience in this practice area. Another thing to look for is an attorney who can meet with you directly. Not only does this help your attorney get to know your claim and fully understand the impact that your injury will have on your life, but it also means that you can ask any questions that you might have directly.
