WHAT QUESTIONS SHOULD I ASK A LAWYER?

The best lawyer for your case will be the one that has the most experience in the area of law dealing with your accident. When you meet your attorney for a consultation, don’t be afraid to ask important questions early, such as “Where do you see my case going?” and “How much can I receive in total compensation?”

ARE PERSONAL INJURY CLAIMS TIME-SENSITIVE?

In a word: yes. For most personal injury claims, the deadline is generally two years from the date of your accident to file a claim. If you wait too long, you could be barred from recovering compensation of any kind for this accident. Consult a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.

Dealing with the Insurance Company After an Accident

One of the primary obstacles to recovering fair compensation after an accident in Richmond is the insurance company. Insurance companies often are the ones tapped to pay out personal injury settlement money after an accident. However, they are not on your side. Here’s what we recommend for dealing with the insurance company.

Don’t Volunteer Information

“Anything you say can and will be used against you.” This line, often employed by arresting officers while informing detainees of their rights, also applies for insurance company negotiations. The company will try to use anything you say to devalue your claim, so don’t give any more information than the strictly necessary.

Don’t Sign a Recorded Statement

Related to the above, don’t make the mistake of signing a sworn statement without giving an attorney the opportunity to look things over first. The smallest detail could be used against you during on-going settlement negotiations.

Don’t Believe the Insurance Company Is on Your Side

The insurance adjuster may try to make it seem like they’re on your side after making contact with you. On the contrary, the goal of the insurance company is to make money by paying the least amount of claims possible. Don’t fall for it.

Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer in Richmond Before Accepting a Settlement Offer

Sometimes, the insurance company will pressure you by claiming that an offer is the best you’re going to get, or that you need to settle now before it’s too late. Experience and even some studies have shown that bringing an attorney into the fold can increase your chances of maximizing your personal injury settlement amount.

Types of Accidents We Cover

Personal injury claims could emanate from any sort of accident or action involving negligent, dangerous, or careless behavior that causes your injuries. With that said, some types of accidents do occur more than others. Some of the cases we’ve specialized on working with in the past include:

Defective
Products

Premises
Liability

Compensation You Can Receive for Your Injuries

Personal injury settlements are won through negotiations with the at-fault party and the insurance company. Usually, these are resolved out of court, but sometimes it becomes necessary to file a formal lawsuit to get the compensation you’re looking for. Some of the forms of financial compensation that could be available to you in a settlement or jury award include:

  • Medical bills
  • Emergency room fees
  • Ambulance costs
  • Prescription costs
  • Physical Therapy expenses
  • Mental counseling
  • Lost income
  • Loss of earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental trauma
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
