Personal Injury FAQ
A serious injury or the loss of a loved one is a confusing, stressful time. This obviously leads to many questions about your rights and options. Below are just some of the most common questions we get here at the injury law firm of Robinson Salyers, PLLC.
How Much Is My Claim Worth?
At Robinson Salyers, PLLC, in Shelbyville and Frankfort, one of the first questions we hear from clients is about how much we think their case is worth. The truth is that there is no single or concrete answer for you. However, we can guarantee that we will always fight to increase the value of your case.
The amount your claim is worth will depend on several factors, these can include:
- How much time you will have to remain out of work and what you typically make
- The total cost of your medical bills
- Whether you will need long-term care like physical therapy or adaptive equipment, such as wheelchair ramps in your house
- If your loved one was killed in the accident and that person was the financial breadwinner in your family
- Whether you have any “noneconomic damages,” such as pain and suffering
It is likely that the first settlement an insurance adjuster offers you will not come close to being a fair amount. We will work closely with your doctor and outside medical and, when indicated, financial experts to determine a fair value of your claim that will address your present and long-term needs.
As an attorney who formerly worked for insurance companies, lawyer John Christopher Robinson knows the arguments insurers will make to avoid paying you what you deserve and what your claim is actually worth. He is now available to put that knowledge to use for you.
Unlike many big-city personal injury “factories,” we are not interested in just helping you get anything. That means we will never advise you to accept a settlement if it is not in your best interest, and we believe we can build a strong case to help you recover more.
Do I Really Need An Attorney’s Help?
Absolutely. Insurance companies commit extensive resources to avoiding having to pay out claims. Your attorney can level the playing field. Our personal injury team includes an attorney who spent eight years representing insurance companies, learning all of their arguments and tactics.
The Insurance Adjuster Said This Was The Best Offer I’d Get. Should I Sign?
You should never agree to a settlement without first discussing your case with a personal injury lawyer who can evaluate the strength of your case and help you determine the best way to proceed. In some cases, it may be wise to accept a settlement offer. In others, it may make sense to press your case harder.
Will My Case Go To Trial?
Not necessarily. In fact, most personal injury cases settle before trial. However, you should only work with an attorney who will always be ready to take your case to trial if that is what’s necessary. The insurance companies will know if your lawyer is only looking for a quick settlement or is ready to fight for you, which will have an effect on how much compensation you recover. We have secured millions of dollars for our clients at trial because we know how to craft strong cases and make compelling arguments to judges and jury members.
Do I Really Need To See A Doctor?
If you want to seek compensation for your injuries, it is essential that you see a doctor and follow the recommended treatment. This will allow you to get an official diagnosis of your injuries and their severity. We know that most people just want to get better and back on their feet. However, if your injuries worsen with time, it may be too late to seek the compensation you think you deserve.
Did I Wait Too Long To File My Case?
Kentucky has a strict statute of limitations for most personal injury cases of only one year. However, some cases, including construction and product defects, have longer time limits. That is just one of the reasons why it’s so important to seek legal advice as soon as possible after your accident.
