Experienced Injury Lawyer Answers Top 3 Injury Claim Questions

1. How long will it take to resolve my injury claim?

Every situation is different. Clients need to know the full extent and the impact of an injury on work life and home life before they can start to fully evaluate their losses. Some people recover within months and others take years. Some clients are left with permanent residual symptoms. The nature of the injuries, recommended treatment, and recovery time are all factors. (For more detail, click this link to our FAQ section.)

2. What is the value of my claim?

It’s impossible to accurately assess the value of an injury claim at the early stage of initial consultation. Compensation depends on many factors including but not limited to the type of injury, necessary treatment, duration of symptoms, and residual issues. Lost wages, difficulty with household maintenance, and care costs are also considered in the negotiation process. (For more information on this, click here.)

3. What should I do now?

You should do everything you can to assist with your recovery. Follow medical advice, attend recommended treatment, and keep documentation for any out-of-pocket expenses or losses related to the accident. (Does it matter if you didn't see a doctor after your accident? Click here.)
