Frequently Asked Injury Law Questions
If you've been hurt an unexpected accident, it's likely you have a number questions about your legal options and future. At Syfrett, Dykes & Furr, we have helped countless injury victims navigate this process and ensure that their claim for compensation is compellingly put forth before the law. Here are many of the most frequently asked questions about personal injury law and personal injury cases.
How do I know if I have a personal injury case?
Each case is different and there several different considerations that need to go into each potential claim. These include the sum of your medical bills resulting from the injury, whether it was clear if the other party was at fault for the accident, and other factors. Our Panama City injury lawyers can help you navigate these questions and discuss with you the viability of your case.
How long do personal injury cases take?
Generally speaking, personal injury cases last anywhere from six to eighteen months. Most people need to see their doctor and receive treatment for some period of time before the doctor can say with any degree of certainty how the injury has affected them already and how it will affect them in the near future. The attorney typically cannot work on resolving the case with the at-fault party until the treatment is completed and a clear picture of the client’s injuries are present.
If it takes so long, why do I need an attorney now?
Because the insurance companies have attorneys and claims adjusters working for them from the day you were injured. Unfortunately, the insurance company wants to see you make as many mistakes as possible because this decreases the value of your claim. If you give a taped statement without knowing what the insurance adjuster is really trying to do, you may be unaware that your words can decrease the value of your case.
How much is my case worth?
This question depends on several factors. First, what is your injury? How much are your medical bills? How much are your lost wages? How has the accident affected your daily life, your job, your family? How clear is the liability? Does the other driver have adequate insurance coverage? Do you have adequate insurance coverage?
Why is insurance so important in a case?
Because we want you to understand how much is really at stake. Insurance companies are in business to make money. Their goal is to settle your case with you for the least amount possible. They train their adjusters to do what they can to minimize your case value because it is in their best interest. We will do what we can to protect you because we work for you and your best interest.
