Get The FAQs On Your Personal Injury Case

At Hildebrand McLeod & Nelson LLP, your personal injury case is important to us. We know that the success of your claim can make a huge impact on your life and the lives of those you love. This is why we strive to have the answers you need.

As such, these are the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions. For more specific questions, we invite you to reach out to our firm for a free initial consultation.

Commonly Asked Questions:

Q: How much is my case worth?

A: This depends. Without knowing the unique circumstances of your case, we can’t place an exact figure on it. But a life-changing injury deserves fair compensation. Often this means monetary damages for medical treatment, loss of wages, or pain and suffering.

Q: How much does an attorney cost?

A: The cost of an attorney and court fees can seem daunting. But here at our firm, it’s one less thing you have to worry about. For all personal injury cases, we work on a contingency fee basis. This means we do not charge a fee unless we recover damages for you in a settlement or trial verdict.

Q: How long will it take to recover damages?

A: A smaller case might settle before you ever have to go to trial, but more complex cases can take months to years. It’s important that you work with attorneys who are willing to fight as long as it takes to recover damages.

Q: What should I do when I get in an accident with an uninsured motorist?

A: An accident with an uninsured driver can be frustrating, but there’s no need to panic. While your first instinct might be to sue, it’s unlikely that the other party will be able to pay you. If they didn’t have insurance to begin with, they probably don’t have the means to cover any damages. This doesn’t mean that you are out of luck though. If you have uninsured motorist insurance, you can file a claim with your own insurer to obtain compensation for your damages. If you do not have this type of coverage, your health insurance may cover some of the damages. With a complex claim like this, it may be in your best interest to speak with a skilled injury lawyer.
