Frequently Asked Questions.
How do I know if I have a “personal injury” claim?
“Personal injury” is a legal term for injury to the body, mind or emotions, as opposed to damage to property. At DiFruscia Law Offices, we know the importance of advocating for the whole person, including their mental and emotional injuries, not merely the physical damages suffered.
How do I know if I am a victim of negligence?
The law requires us to act with “reasonable care.” Negligence, then, is a failure to exercise the care a reasonably prudent person would use under like circumstances, resulting in harm caused by such carelessness. Negligence is an important factor for recovery in a personal injury case because you will have to prove that another person or business was careless or negligent, and that their carelessness or negligence caused your injuries.
How do I know if I have “pain and suffering”?
“Pain and suffering” is the legal term for the physical and emotional distress caused by an act of negligence. In a personal injury case, “pain and suffering” refers to physical pain and mental suffering that are recoverable as damages. This type of monetary recovery can be awarded in addition to compensation for such things as lost wages and medical expenses.
How do I know if I have a case?
The best way to know if you have a personal injury case is to contact a personal injury lawyer.
In general, three things must be proven to recover for a personal injury case:
1. that you suffered damages
2. that the defendant was negligent and
3. that the defendant’s negligence caused your damages
Does a prior injury affect my personal injury claim?
It is important to recognize that an insurance company will always argue that they are not responsible for compensating you for your prior injury. However, the existence of a prior injury does not automatically relieve a defendant insurance company from compensating you for new injuries sustained as a result of the accident.
How do I know what my personal injury case is worth?
As stated, the best way to know if you have a viable chance of recovery, and what that recovery might be, is to contact a personal injury lawyer. That said, there are a number of factors that influence the monetary value of your personal injury case. For instance:
- The nature and extent of your injuries
- Amount of medical bills
- Amount of lost wages
- Amount of property damage
- Amount of other financial losses
- Amount of your pain and suffering
- Amount of your present and future disability
Why shouldn’t I deal with insurance companies on my own?
The objective of insurance companies is to acquire as many premium payments as possible. Therefore, insurance companies do not always have your best interests at heart. It is best to contact a personal injury lawyer to facilitate this process and advocate for your needs.
When should I contact a lawyer?
Contact a lawyer immediately after your injuries or soon after seeking medical attention.
What type of fees will my personal injury lawyer charge?
A contingent fee is typically charged for personal injury cases. A contingent fee means an attorney only gets paid if money is collected for the client. The usual fee an attorney collects when a case is settled without filing a lawsuit is 25% to 1/3 of the recovery.
