How Do I know if I Have a Personal Injury Case?

There are three basic requirements to know whether or not you have a personal injury case.
1) The responsible party can be proved to be negligent.
2) The negligence caused a personal injury.
3) The injury resulted in harm and may include medical bills, pain and suffering and/or lost wages.

Are There Time Limits After I’m Injured to File a Lawsuit?

There’s no general number, but in most cases, you have at least one year to file a lawsuit. This may lead you to believe you can wait to find a lawyer, but don’t wait! The sooner you get a personal injury lawyer involved, the quicker they can help. Call attorney Brent Jordan at Hill & Jordan if you or a loved one has a personal injury case.

If I Win My Personal Injury Case, How will I be Compensated?

This will depend on a variety of factors. Things like lost wages, pain and suffering and medical bills come into play. All cases are different so there’s no “one size fits all”. If you need help with your personal injury case, let our attorneys start you off with a free consultation. Contact us today to get started.

Should I Sign a Release or Anything from an Insurance Company?

Not until consulting with a lawyer first! Most of the time, an insurance company won’t pay you without obtaining your signature on a release. But a signed release allows the insurance company to be free from the obligation to pay anything more on your claim. It also prevents you from bringing up a lawsuit in the future.

A solid legal team like the attorneys at Hill & Jordan should be able to review a release and advise you whether you risk losing any rights by signing it.

The Insurance Company is Asking for a Recorded Statement. Should I Give One?

No! Despite what an insurance adjuster may tell you, you aren’t required to give a statement. Even if the insurance company send you letters threatening to “close their file” without your statement, you shouldn’t give a statement.

Adjusters are trained to conduct interviews and to secure testimony that makes it less likely for their party to be blamed. If you give a recorded statement, it can be used as future evidence in a lawsuit.

Will My Personal Injury Case Go to Court?

Some cases do, but most don’t. Typically, most cases are settled out of court. But that doesn’t mean you won’t need legal help. A personal injury lawyer is here to protect your interests and fight the insurance companies for you. Without a lawyer on your side, you may receive much less than what you truly deserve.

If you were injured and think you have a personal injury case, call our office today. We’ll get you started with a free consultation.

What is the Most Important Thing for Me to do After My Injury?

Simply put, the most important thing for you to do is to get better. Once you’ve recovered enough to contact an attorney, you should do so. An attorney can help start to put together your personal injury case.

At Hill & Jordan, we can help you with your personal injury case. Once your injuries have improved, give us a call for help.

Should I Keep Track of All My Medical Expenses?

Yes. The more medical evidence you keep track of, the stronger your case will be. These expenses are critical to prove the value of your personal injury case.

Who Determines How the Accident Happens?

Normally, this is done via eyewitness accounts and an analysis of physical evidence (skid marks, accident angles, etc.). Usually, there is also a police report that can be accessed. It’s also possible that the accident was captured on video surveillance.
