Commonly Asked Questions:
Do I have a Case?
If you’ve been injured due to another’s negligence or intent, there’s a likelihood that you have a case. However, to determine the strength and viability of your claim, various factors, such as the extent of your injuries, the circumstances of the incident, and evidence available, must be considered.
Do I need a Personal Injury Attorney?
While it’s technically possible to handle a personal injury claim on your own, having an experienced attorney can make a significant difference. They can assist in gathering evidence, negotiating with insurance companies, and ensuring you receive a fair settlement. Additionally, they are equipped to take your case to court if necessary.
What is my Case Worth?
The value of a personal injury case varies based on several factors: the severity of the injury, medical expenses, loss of earnings, future medical needs, and pain and suffering. An attorney can provide a more precise estimation after evaluating the specifics of your situation.
How much does it Cost to Hire an Attorney?
Most personal injury attorneys, including Osterhout Berger Disability Law, operate on a contingency fee basis. This means you pay nothing upfront. Instead, the attorney receives a percentage of the settlement or court award. If no compensation is recovered, you owe nothing.
