Frequently asked questions

• The pain isn't bad. Should I bother going to the doctor?

Even the slightest amount of pain could be the result of a more serious injury. Go to the doctor and make sure you are thoroughly examined. If you're concerned about how you're going to pay for the examination or treatment, talk to a lawyer.

• How am I supposed to get to work in the meantime?

Waiting for a check can take weeks or more. Asking for rides or using public transportation is stressful. If you're represented by a lawyer a free rental car might be an option.

• Will the insurance company pay me for the time I missed at work?

If your bills are piling up, an experienced lawyer might be able to help.

• How much do I have to pay a lawyer?

If you've never been helped by a lawyer before, you might be surprised to know that you won't have to open your wallet. Lawyers put up their own money to get you the highest settlement possible. They only get paid if they win your case.

• What if the person that hit me doesn't have insurance?

Don't worry. You have options. A lawyer can walk you through the steps of dealing with an uninsured driver. The most important thing to do is to take action as soon as possible.

• Someone hit me and ran. Now what?

Likely you were injured and couldn't take a picture of their license plate.

An experienced lawyer knows how to use even the smallest piece of evidence to solve your case. In many instances, we've had lawyers question witnesses, and pull local security camera footage to track down the driver that caused the accident. A seasoned attorney will do more diligent detective work than your local police -- especially if you've been injured.

• Can I pursue a case if my immigration status in the U.S. is unclear?

Regardless of your legal status, a lawyer will help you get the justice you deserve.

• What can I do if the insurance company is low-balling me?

If you've gone back and forth with the insurance company and still aren't satisfied, an experienced personal injury lawyer can help.
