Personal Injury FAQ
Huntsville Personal Injury Attorney
How much is my injury worth?
This is a common question with regard to injury cases. Unfortunately, without a complete review and evaluation of the case it is impossible to determine how much the case is worth in a settlement. However, if you contact a Huntsville personal injury lawyer from the Law Office of Timothy A. Hughes, an attorney can answer your questions.
I think I have a medical malpractice case. What do I do?
In any personal injury case, including malpractice, Alabama law allows 2 years in which to file a claim for compensation for damages. It is vital that you move quickly in order to get your claim filed in a timely manner. If you are contacted by the insurance company for the physician or medical treatment center about the case, it is strongly advised that you do not give them any information about the case without first contacting an attorney from the firm for legal representation.
Will I be compensated for pain and suffering?
Pain and suffering is a claim that can be made under certain circumstances. In catastrophic injury cases, such as when a person suffers a very serious injury, this will be part of the claim or lawsuit. In other cases, depending upon the degree of the injury suffered, it may not be; however there may be other claims for damages that will assist even in those cases, such as lost wages, future wage loss or others.
Why do I need a lawyer for a personal injury case?
Unfortunately, if you have been injured due to the harmful, dangerous or negligent act of another person, the insurance company that will pay the claim does not represent you - they represent the responsible party. As insurance companies are in the business of making a profit, any reduction in claim amounts paid is a plus for shareholders. When you operate in such a case without an attorney you take the risk of having a settlement much lower than you might be able to receive with a strong personal injury lawyer aggressively fighting for you, and representing YOU.
