Frequently Asked Questions

Squires Law Office, P.C. offers professional legal services to victims of personal injury accidents. For information about personal injury accidents, contact a personal injury attorney from our firm. Below, you will find some of the most frequently asked questions that our firm recieves:

What is personal injury?
An accident that results in injuries or deaths due to the negligent, careless or reckless actions of another is a personal injury. Individuals can suffer all types of injuries from soft tissue damage to catastrophic traumatic brain injuries or spinal cord injuries. Injured victims or their family members may wonder how they will pay for their mounting medical bills in addition to the costs of day-to-day living. It is important to seek legal advice as to the availability of monetary compensation for the injuries and suffering. The responsible party for an accident may be liable to the victim for damages including lost wages and future earning capacity, as well as medical expenses and pain and suffering.

How much will I be compensated for my injury?
A skilled personal injury attorney can evaluate the worth of an injury and pursue maximum compensation on behalf of the victim. Insurance companies evaluate injuries using set formulas based on the severity of the injuries, extent of disability, disfigurement, or other factors. The insurance industry usually attempts to settle a case quickly for a figure less than the value of the claim. They accomplish this by redirecting fault, lessening the degree of injuries, or denying claims in some cases. Once a victim signs an insurance settlement offer, he or she may forfeit any rights to further compensation. A settlement may be inadequate to compensate for the pain and suffering resulting from the accident.

Why do I need to hire an injury lawyer?
An experienced personal injury lawyer can take care of the legal aspects of a case including dealing with insurance companies while the victim concentrates on the healing process. Many injury victims are unaware of their rights to compensation, necessitating legal representation from a knowledgeable attorney committed to helping clients receive the monetary compensation they deserve. An attorney can pursue the desired compensation for clients while protecting their interests when negotiating with insurance companies or in the courtroom when necessary.

Is a personal injury lawyer expensive?
Some injury firm charge far too much for their work, and the attorney could get more out of the claim than the injured victim. At Squires Law Office, P.C., we don't operate that way. Our terms are reasonable, and we provide legal services on a contingency basis. If we don't win, you don't owe us anything.
