Common Questions About Personal Injury Law
Individuals unfamiliar with personal injury law often ask several questions to better gauge the strength of their case and set expectations for the time their case will take as well as the compensation they may receive. We want to provide you as much information as possible before, during, and after your case, and we are available to answer any questions you may have. Here are our answers to some of the most common questions asked by our clients.
Do I have a personal injury case?
In order for a personal injury case to exist, three criteria must be met.
First, there must be a clear example of liability. You must be able to show that the defendant’s actions caused the injury to occur. Were you attacked by a dog that wasn’t on a leash? Did a car run a red light and strike your vehicle? If so, you may have a personal injury case.
Secondly, you must be able to show that damage occurred as a result of the action. Did you suffer nerve damage or require stitches from the dog attack? Was your leg broken from the vehicle striking you? Damages can be emotional or physical, but they must result from the incident itself.
Finally, is the compensation collectible? Were you struck by a young driver with no insurance and no property or a multi-million dollar company? Although the person that caused the incident may be charged criminally, you may not have any practical way to collect money from them. A case evaluation will typically analyze whether you have a promising personal injury case, but it is difficult to say ahead of time without knowing all the facts.
How much is my case worth?
There are many factors that go into evaluating the actual settlement value of a personal injury case. Unfortunately, there is no simple formula that can be applied to all cases. Although we like to think cases are simple and clear-cut, and the amounts clients seek are fair and reasonable, it is ultimately up to the jury to decide how much it is worth if the case goes to trial. If the case is in the settlement phase, it is important to consider certain values to determine how much money should be asked for. These include answers to questions like:
- Is it clear that the defendant is at fault or is this contested?
- What is the severity of the injuries?
- Are there any issues with insurance coverage?
- Are there any communication issues with the client?
- Is the defendant personable?
These factors can make a big difference in how much is requested and ultimately awarded to a victim
Who can I see for medical care?
Injured parties without medical insurance are often unsure of whom they can turn to for treatment. These individuals often face hefty out-of-pocket expenses, rendering adequate medical care for injuries unreachable. Thankfully, there are numerous doctors around Las Vegas that take cases on a lien basis.
If possible, injured parties without insurance can go to their regular doctors if they are also willing to provide care on a lien basis. This ensures they do not charge out of pocket for costs. Instead, they will get paid once the lawsuit is complete. It’s in your best interest as well as that of your doctor to ensure you track and record all the expenses associated with your treatment and recovery. This data can play a vital role in determining the exact value of your injury case.
What can I claim for lost wages?
Individuals forced to miss work due to an accident can claim lost wages even if they use sick pay to cover the missed days. Self-employed individuals are able to receive lost wages for a reasonable amount, depending on their annual tax returns.
In some cases, injured parties can claim compensation for lost opportunities. This includes how much money they potentially could have earned had the accident not occurred. For example, if you were self-employed and injured on the way to meet a high paying client for a contract,the fact that you did not make it could mean you are earning far less than you could have been had you made it to the meeting. This hypothetical lost income can be factored into some cases.
Do I really need a lawyer?
Quite often, injured parties are left believing that insurance companies will give them credit for not hiring an attorney. This is far from true. Insurance companies often try to take advantage of injured parties that do not hire lawyers.
Not hiring an attorney immediately after an injury can have a serious negative impact on your ability to succeed in a lawsuit. Clients often spend months defending themselves only to discover that they truly do need a lawyer. By the time they consider hiring one, they have lost evidence, witnesses are unreachable, and details of the incident are clouded at best. This makes it nearly impossible to form a strong legal argument.
It is crucial to hire a personal injury lawyer to represent your case as soon as possible after the injury occurs. Doing so ensures you are legally protected in every way possible. At Aaron Law Group, we’re ready from the moment you contact us to defend your rights and fight for what you deserve in court.
What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?
At Aaron Law Group, we are here to make sure you are not taken advantage of by insurance companies or a complicated legal process. There are several steps to follow in order to adequately pursue a personal injury case. Our team will work on your behalf so you can focus on your recovery and let us handle all the work. Some tasks we perform include:
Investigating claims. Personal injury lawyers often work on a contingency fee basis when representing personal injury clients. For this reason, great care is placed on screening clients and evaluating cases. Once our team is confident that a client has a winnable case, we work diligently on compiling all the pieces.
Gathering evidence.Gathering information and evidence in support of a client’s claim is essential to its eventual success. We diligently work to collect any police or incident reports available. If necessary, we will track down witnesses and take witness statements that support our client’s claims and perspective. Additionally, we will take photographs at the scene of the accident in order to prove neglect.
Additionally, we utilize surveillance cameras or other types of evidence available to support our client. Evidence is a crucial part of establishing liability in order to prove who caused the accident and to what extent the damages suffered by the plaintiff were a result of that negligence.
Evidence can also include medical records and medical reports for all treatments required as a result of the incident. Medical bills for all the treatments, employment documents, employment reports, and reports of property damage resulting from the incident can play a significant role in winning a case. All of these reports are necessary to gauge the financial loss resulting from the incident as well as the extent of injuries sustained.
Negotiating with insurance companies. Negotiating with insurance companies is a common practice for our personal injury lawyers. Negotiations typically involve reviewing the details of insurance policies in order to determine the maximum level of compensation that is available for a client based on the specific circumstances of their case.
At Aaron Law Group, we typically handle all communication with the insurance company in order to prevent the injured victim from potentially jeopardizing their claim. Even something as simple and seemingly innocent as a client giving an insurance company a recorded statement could have a large impact on a client’s case.
Sending out demand letters when necessary. Our team at Aaron Law will send out demand letters to insurance companies after a claim is thoroughly investigated. Our demand letters highlight facts of the accident and demand the insurance company pay a certain amount of damages for the injuries caused by the defendant. After receiving this notification, the insurance company can agree with the demand, refuse the demand, or counter against it by offering a decreased amount. Unless they agree to the demand amount, our cases move forward to the next phase.
Preparing the pleadings for the case. When an insurance company does not agree with our demand for adequate compensation, and they fail to offer a fair settlement in response, our team prepares a complaint against the defendant.
The legal complaint sets out all legal arguments applicable to the case. These arguments demonstrate how the defendant is responsible for the accident. Additionally, the pleadings will state the amount of damages the client is seeking. The defendant should respond to the complaint within 30-days of receiving it.
Conduct discovery when necessary. Discovery is not always a required part of the personal injury case process. However, it can be used to bolster claims of negligence. The discovery process includes sending interrogatories to the defendant asking for certain information. Discovery can also include deposing witnesses and exports as well as parties to the claim.
Representing the client at trial. If the case does not settle outside of court, the next step is to go to trial. Our team at Aaron Law is well versed in court customs and procedures. We work to represent injured parties in the court system by making sure all steps are carefully followed throughout the entire process, and we’re not afraid to go to court if necessary.
The process can be long, sometimes extended several years from start to finish. It is crucial that clients remain as committed to their case as we are. We work hard to make a real impact on our client’s lives and our team has been recognized for our excellence in personal injury law by the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates as well as the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, which recognize the top trial lawyers in America.
Through our passion and commitment, we ensure our clients receive the compensation they deserve.
