Frequently Asked Questions

If you or someone close to you has suffered a personal injury, loss of life, or financial loss due to the negligent, reckless or wrongful conduct of another, OR if your rights were violated in a place of employment, then you have a potential case and should seek out the representation of a qualified, experienced law firm with a track record of success in the type of case you are presenting. (See “Cases We Handle” above.)
Various time limits, called "Statutes of limitation" apply in different types of cases. Failure to file your claim within these time limits is fatal to a case, meaning one is forever barred from bringing the claim, and the responsible party is released from any liability. The statute of limitation in most personal injury cases is two years. In cases where the defendant is a public entity (e.g. city, county, or state), the time limit six months. In many other cases the limit is only one year. It is therefore very important that you contact a qualified, experienced attorney immediately to represent you in filing your claim in a timely manner
Your insurance company: Be cooperative and provide them the information they request in a timely manner. They should be on your side and should assist you in your claim for medical expenses and property damage.
Opposing party’s insurance company: You take a serious risk in speaking to the other party’s insurance company on your own behalf. They will document everything you say and then use it against you later. It is very important to have qualified, experienced attorney on your side to be your spokesperson in negotiations with the other party’s insurance company. They are trained and skilled at manipulating you in order to minimize the value of your claim, or defeat it all together.
Most personal injury firms, including ours, provide a free evaluation of your case and work on what is known as a contingent fee basis. This means that unless the law firm wins your case, through settlement or at trial, you pay nothing for their services or their out-of-pocket expenses. Payment to the law firm is therefore “contingent” upon the outcome of the case. Virtually all personal injury firms charge a percentage of the amount recovered ranging from 25% to 50% depending on the firm and the type of case because of firms offering discounted fees. The law firm you hire makes a huge difference. In the end, the most important number with is the total amount recovered on your behalf. Retain the best attorney you can to achieve the best results!
Many law firms will give you a quick opinion on the value of your case to get you in the door. This can be misleading as there are many legal and factual questions that need to be resolved before an accurate valuation can be made. It is possible to give an approximate range of value after some initial investigation of the case, but an accurate estimation of value considers several important factors (e.g. who is at fault, type and severity of injuries, causation, collectability, etc.) and often takes significant investigation and work up of the case. Schedule a consultation with the Cartwright Law Firm today to get a better assessment on the potential value of your claim.
