Personal Injury – Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

A personal injury can result from many types of accidents or circumstances.  For instance a personal injury can arise out of negligence, accidents such as auto accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, train accidents, bus accidents, boat accidents, plane crashes, the list goes on and on.  Moreover, injuries or death can occur as a result of medical malpractice. If you are a victim of personal injury then you can file a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent individual responsible.   The law limits the amount of time you can do this so it is wise to take action immediately.  The law of Personal injury provides monetary compensation to help the victims of personal injury to recover from their losses.  Their losses include pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills and loss of services with their family.

It is critical to understand that if you wish to file a personal injury lawsuit then you must consider with the right personal injury lawyer the following important issues involved in filing a personal injury lawsuit.

First, you and your personal injury lawyer must speak about the time limit within which you must file your personal injury case. This time limit is known as your Statute of Limitations. Every single U.S state has its own Statute of Limitations.

With respect to your personal injury lawsuit, if your state’s Statute of Limitations has expired then you cannot file your personal injury lawsuit.   Make sure that you and your personal injury lawyer are clear on when to file your lawsuit so that Statute of Limitations does not stand in your way.

Secondly,  if you are filing a personal injury lawsuit it is best to hire a personal injury lawyer. Most of the personal injury lawyers work on contingency basis where you are not required to pay anything before hiring a lawyer. Your personal injury lawyer will only receive a percentage of the amount from the final settlement or verdict amount the personal injury case is won.

Most of the defendant’s hire aggressive defense lawyers who work for the best interest of their clients. Therefore, it is best to consult a personal injury lawyer. Your injury lawyer will help you steer clear of any complications arising out of your personal injury lawsuit. A personal injury lawyer will help you receive justice and compensation you deserve.

If you or a loved one has suffered personal injury in an accident or because of the medical malpractice of a doctor or hospital call the Personal Injury Lawyer for a free consultation at 1(800)WE-FIGHT.  The insurance companies have lawyers working hard for them and so should you.  There is no fee unless we win your case.
