If you are in a car accident your private medical insurance may pay your medical bills before settlement. If you do not have medical insurance, the insurance covering the vehicle you were in at the time of the injury may cover the payment of your medical bills.
The law establishing the time limit in which a lawsuit can be filed is called a statute of limitation. It is critical to know which statute of limitation applies to your case. Therefore, it is imperative that you contact an attorney as soon as possible after your injury so that the applicable statute of limitation(s) can be determined.
We cannot estimate the value of your case until your medical condition has stabilized. Research of the relevant points of law and retention of expert witnesses to assess the strengths of your case and its value is also required in most cases.
For most personal injury cases, attorneys charge a percentage of the settlement award or amount. If no recovery is obtained on your claim, you will not owe us any attorneys fees or our litigation costs.
Appel Law Firm LLP strives to resolve all claims within one to two years after the accident. Sometimes cases resolve earlier, sometimes later. While it is important not to delay your case, it is equally important not to rush your case. This is why each case gets its own plan so as to maximize your recovery on a timely basis.
