How do I know if I have grounds for a personal injury claim?
Determining whether you have grounds for a personal injury claim will take a careful review of the matter by a skilled professional. An Oklahoma City personal injury attorney at our offices can talk to you about what occurred and can conduct an initial assessment to determine whether someone else was to blame for your injuries and can be held accountable under the state's injury laws. From there, we can determine the best approach to handle your case and seek the compensation you deserve.
How long will my case take?
The duration of any personal injury claim will vary depending on the extent of bodily injury and property damage involved. For cases that involve only minor property damage, your claim should be resolved quickly. If you or a loved one sustained a catastrophic injury, the case will generally take longer. The duration of any case will most often vary depending on the length of time it takes for a victim's injuries to heal.
How much money can I receive for my lawsuit?
The specific value of your personal injury claim is an important issue to consider. Every case is different, and the amount of money you can receive from your lawsuit will therefore vary. The extent of injury you have sustained as well as the impact your injuries will have on your life from an emotional, physical and financial standpoint will all affect the value of your claim. We have only one chance to secure the settlement or jury award you rightfully deserve. That is why, when you involve an Oklahoma City injury lawyer at our firm, we will take care to seek the highest amount of financial compensation possible.
Can an attorney help me deal with the insurance company?
Dealing with an insurance company, whether it is yours or the other party's, is often part of handling a personal injury claim. Insurance companies are out to make money. They make more money by collecting premiums rather than paying out high settlement amounts to claimants and policyholders. You may therefore find it difficult to receive a fair settlement for your injury claim. An attorney can place the proper legal pressure on the insurance company to investigate and pay your claim in a just manner. If necessary, your attorney can take your case to civil court to seek the money you deserve.
How much do I have to pay for your services?
We work on a contingent fee basis. You only pay for our legal services if we are able to successfully secure a settlement or win a jury award on your behalf. You pay no out-of-pocket expenses.
