Frequently Asked Questions
We know that suffering an injury that wasn’t your fault brings up a lot of questions. Whether it was at work, on the road, or otherwise due to the negligence of others, every personal injury case has many ins and outs. We put together a list of frequently asked personal injury questions to help you better understand what comes next.
What Do I Do After My Accident?
First and foremost, see a doctor. Even if your injury doesn’t constitute a visit to the emergency room, it’s important for a doctor to evaluate your situation and set up your treatment plan. This is also useful for documentation in your legal case. After you have received any necessary medical care, you’ll want to document your injuries. Take photos and write down all the factual details you can recall while they’re fresh on your mind. Contact witnesses, if possible, to get their account of the incident as well.
What If I’m Partly at Fault?
It’s up to the court to decide where the fault ultimately lies in your personal injury case. Even if you played some part in the injury, it’s still possible to receive settlement after all the details are reviewed.
What’s the Timeline of My Case?
First, you’ll want to contact Cruz & Associates to hire an attorney you trust. Then, your case begins after you’ve filed a claim with the state court. From there, the timeline could be as quick as a few weeks or span into a year or longer. The deciding factors include the opposing party, insurance compliance and more. The timeline is also partially in your control as you’ll be able to reject or accept settlement offers.
Will My Case Go to Trial?
Most personal injury cases do not go to trial, but there’s always a chance. If there are high levels of factual dispute or legal contest, it may be left up to the court to decide. However, most personal injury cases have a relatively clear solution that can be met with the cooperation of both parties. If you do go to trial, you can rest assured that the team at Cruz & Associates is prepared to litigate on your behalf.
How Can an Attorney Help?
When it comes to any legal situation, it’s best to let the experts handle it. A personal injury case is no exception.
