Worcester Personal Injury Lawyer Answers FAQs:
When you’re faced with a serious life changing injury, you’re likely to have questions. Attorney Peter Ventura answers our clients’ FAQs here.
What do I bring to prepare for an initial consultation with your office?
Once you set up an initial consultation to discuss your personal injury lawsuit, it’s important to bring with you all of the pertinent information you have regarding your case. This means you should bring any accident reports, medical treatment notes and other medical provider information to the initial consultation. Any photos of the accident site as well as photos of visable injury to your body are very important as well. The more information you can provide to the attorney, the better he or she will be able to assess your case. You should be prepared to talk about the details of your injury and how the accident occurred in the first place.
How soon will I get paid for my injuries?
This depends upon whether the insurance company for the defendant accepts liability for your accident and offers you a fair amount of compensation for the damages you suffered. Personal injury claims are varied. If you settle out of court, it may take as little as a few months after you accident or as long as a few years especially if your case is contested by the defendant’s insurance company. Also, only the injured party decides whether to settle a case out of court and for how much. If you feel as though you aren’t being offered enough compensation for your injuries, and you want to bring the case to trial, this is a choice you can make as you fight your lawsuit. If a settlement is offered by the defendant or their insurance company , your lawyer has an obligation to present the offer to you for you to accept or refuse.
