That is why it is vital for you, as the victim, to be educated about what restitution you deserve under the law. For that reason, our team has compiled four of the most commonly asked questions we receive from clients. With answers to the personal injury questions below, you can stay prepared for what lies ahead with your personal injury case.
Q: What is negligence?
A: Negligence is a term in the legal world that means the failure to apply the level of care that a government, company, or individual might provide under similar conditions. Negligence can also refer to performing actions that a reasonable person would not perform. Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is a great example of negligence.
Q: I have been injured in a car accident, What kind of damages allow for compensation?
A: You are entitled to compensation for all the damages you have had to endure due to another person’s negligent actions. Common damage types include:
- Pain and Suffering
- Property Loss/Damage
- Medical Expenses – Current and Future
- Loss of Income – Including Projected Future Income
Q: How long will my car accident case take before it is over?
A: Once your investigation wraps up and we make the responsible parties aware that you are seeking full financial compensation, your case should proceed with relative quickness. While each situation is different, many personal injury cases are settled within six months.
Q: My friend said I do not need to hire an attorney for my car accident case. Is that true?
A: If you want to get the restitution you deserve and fight back against the insurance companies on a level playing field, having a local accident attorney in Boca Raton is crucial. As your advocate, we make it a point to help you understand your rights – like receiving compensation for the complete cost of your medical treatment, not just your co-pay amount. If you try to “go it alone,” you could be missing out on as much as 350% more compensation for your personal injury claim.
