Common personal injury questions answered
Sometimes it best to get back to the basics. At the Law Offices of Anthony Carbone, we want to keep our past, present, and future clients informed on all issues that may affect their case. If you are injured after an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may have some questions before deciding whether to pursue a personal injury case. So let us help!
Here’s a few answers to common questions that personal injury clients ask us every day:
1. How much is my case worth?
The truth is we can’t give you a definitive answer. All cases are different and the outcome for each case is never the same. But when you step into our office, we’ll give you our honest opinion of how much we think your case is worth. The important thing to remember is not to take the first offer the insurance company gives you. They are trying to give you the lowest amount they are willing to pay.
2. How can I afford your services?
That’s easy…you don’t have to pay! We work on what’s call a contingency basis — this means that if we don’t get you the money that you deserve, you don’t have to pay us a single dime.
3. How will a lawyer help my personal injury case?
Once you hire personal injury lawyer Anthony Carbone, we get started right away. The first thing we will do is investigate your case thoroughly. We’ll get the police reports and witness statements; review your medical reports and history; and takes photos and videos of the accident scene. All you have to do is be up front, give us any information you have and we’ll take care of the rest.
4. How long will it take my case to settle?
It depends on how complex the case is. It could take months, even years. Or it could take as little time as a few weeks. The important thing to remember is to be patient and if you have any questions, call us. We are here for you.
5. What happens if we can’t settle my case?
Sometimes, you just can’t reach an agreement with the insurance company. And this means, you’re going to have to go to court to have the matter settled. This usually happens when the insurance company refuse to pay the amount you are requesting or because it found you liable for your injury. This means more time will be spent on your case, but don’t worry, we’ll make sure you get the right outcome.
