As an experienced Phoenix accident and injury lawyer, Bob Goldwater is often asked numerous questions about personal injury, wrongful death and medical malpractice claims. These areas can be complex and cause a great deal of headache and trouble for the average person, and as such it is of the utmost importance that an accident victim and his or her family work with an attorney that can guide them through the legal process and help them reach a positive conclusion to their claim and lawsuit.
While we are happy to answer your questions when you contact us for a free consultation, we have also listed some frequently asked questions below, for your convenience.
What is my claim worth?
It is virtually impossible to determine what a personal injury claim may be worth, without conducting a thorough evaluation of all information associated with the accident and injuries, including medical expenses, future medical care and more. However, by working with an experienced lawyer you can find out what your claim is worth in order to then pursue the true value of your losses – so you can make a full financial recovery.
What can I receive compensation for?
Depending upon the circumstances of your case, you may be able to receive monetary compensation for: medical expenses, future medical care and treatment, lost wages, loss of earning potential and even emotional trauma.
Do I have a time limit to file my claim within?
Yes. Each state has its own statute of limitations regarding when a personal injury, malpractice or wrongful death must be filed. This will often be a shorter amount of time if a government agency or organization is the party being held liable for your injuries. Thus, it is important to consult an attorney immediately in order to take legal action before it is too late.
Should I talk to the other person’s insurance company?
It is absolutely crucial that you do not give the other party’s insurance company a statement regarding your injuries or the accident. They will be contacting you in order to obtain a statement that can be used against you in order to avoid paying a claim or to settle your claim for an amount which is far below what you actually deserve. A Phoenix accident lawyer, however, can discuss your claim with the insurance company in order to give you a better chance of actually getting the compensation that you deserve.
What can an attorney do to help me?
A Phoenix personal injury attorney can conduct all communication with the insurance company as well as the other party involved in the accident. Your attorney will be crucial in proving the negligence of the other party so you have the opportunity of obtaining maximum compensation for your losses, and so you aren’t held at all responsible for an accident that you did not cause.
