Common Personal Injury Questions
What Is My Case Worth?
Each and every case comprises separate components and factors, which are closely examined. Some of these include the amount of special damages, medical damages, the length of medical treatment, the nature of the injury, the possible permanency of the injury, loss of function or use of a particular body part, emotional damages, scarring, disruption of the enjoyment of life, the impact of lost wages and/or lost earning capacity. The value of your case will also involve a comprehensive evaluation of liability and the likelihood of recovery.
What Damages Am I Entitled To?
You can be assured that your case will be thoroughly examined to ensure that all possible damages are examined. You will be informed of all developments and will remain a part of the settlement process. Your lawyer will communicate with you at all stages of the handling of your case so that you remain fully informed as to the status of your case. At the inception of the handling of your case, you will meet with an attorney who will explain to you the extent of the damages that you are entitled to. As your case develops, you will learn specifics as to the likely range of damages, likely settlement ranges, and/or likely verdict range.
When Can I Expect to Receive a Monetary Settlement?
At Percy Law Group, PC, you can be assured that the handling of your personal injury case will be given the professional attention and direction necessary to achieve a prompt and fair settlement. No two cases are the same. Each case is evaluated for a settlement once all of the above factors are examined. Some cases may be settled directly with the responsible party and/or with their insurer without the need to bring a lawsuit. Other matters will necessitate the filing of a lawsuit.
What Is a Contingency Fee?
At Percy Law Group, PC, there is no fee unless we are successful in obtaining a settlement and/or collectible verdict. You are not obligated to pay upfront for any costs involved in the handling of your case. The fee itself is contingent on the outcome of the case. If successful, we will deduct any costs incurred during the handling of the case plus an agreed percentage, all of which will be articulated within the written fee agreement. Please note you are not deemed a client of Percy Law Group, PC, until your case has been reviewed and until the contingency fee agreement has been signed.
