Personal Injury Cases
After a serious accident, you’ll need to hire an experienced personal injury lawyer to represent your interests in negotiations with the at-fault party’s insurance company. If you cannot secure a fair insurance settlement or if negotiations break down, you and your personal injury lawyer may decide that filing a personal injury lawsuit is necessary.
Hiring a qualified attorney is an important decision, and you should make sure that your attorney is someone you can trust.

What does a personal injury lawyer do ?
A personal injury lawyer is an attorney who specializes in helping injured people recover compensation for their injuries after an accident. Personal injury attorneys can represent you in negotiations with the at-fault party’s insurance company. If you and your lawyer determine that filing a personal injury lawsuit is necessary, your lawyer will represent you in court.
How much does a personal injury lawyer cost ?
Most personal injury lawyers represent clients on a contingency fee basis. A contingency fee is a payment arrangement in which the client pays no fee if his or her claim is unsuccessful.
If your claim is successful, you will pay your lawyer an agreed-upon percentage of your judgment or settlement amount.
How long does it take to resolve a personal injury case?
There are many many different factors that influence the time it takes to settle or resolve a personal injury claim. It’s not possible to give an exact estimate of how long your case will take from start to finish. Most personal injury lawyers will not begin to engage in serious settlement negotiations with the at-fault party until you have sufficiently recovered from all of your injuries. If a lawyer acts too prematurely, you may not be able to recover compensation for unforeseen health complications or other losses.
The speed at which the insurance company investigates and ultimately resolves your claim will play an important role in how long it takes to resolve your case. The more evidence you provide to the insurance company about your accident and injuries, the easier it will be for the insurance company to offer you a fair settlement within a reasonable time frame.
If you and your personal injury lawyer decide that filing a personal injury lawsuit is necessary, it could take several months or more than a year to resolve your case. Among many other factors, the time it takes to bring a personal injury lawsuit to settlement or trial depends on how clear it is that the other party was negligent, whether the other party is willing to settle before trial, how much discovery is needed, and how busy the court or judge is.
