Legal Questions About Personal Injury Legal Questions About Personal Injury

Possibly, but by doing so you would lose a lot of the advantages that come from having legal counsel and potentially a lot of compensation. Attorney Jason R. Smith has experience with the complexities of insurance law, settlements, and negotiation. He will fight for your just compensation.

Just compensation is different for every case. You are generally entitled to pain and suffering, lost wages, medical expenses, economic loss, prospective future medical cost, and various other damages. Attorney Jason R. Smith can analyze and explain to you the legal details and possibilities of your specific case. With this information, you will be better able to make a decision about what compensation you feel you deserve and the legal course of action you are willing to take over your loss.

Generally, no. Sometimes there are court and other “out-of-pocket” costs involved that Mr. Smith will ask you to cover. In most circumstances, however, Mr. Smith will take your case entirely on a contingency fee basis, meaning that his compensation will be a percentage of the money recovered as a result of your injury lawsuit. This percentage depends on the circumstances of your case and whether the case is settled out-of-court or in trial. The fee agreement you sign with Mr. Smith will go into further detail on this issue.

This is one of the biggest questions that you must consider, and the answer is different in every situation. Mr. Smith will be able to help you form this decision after examining the details of your specific case. Often, the answer depends on what the insurance company has offered as compensation and your personal needs.

Sometimes litigation can be long and drawn-out, and it can take up to several years to receive any kind of return. Settlement, on the other hand, can lead to a quick resolution of the situation but also a less-than-deserved amount of compensation for you.
