Frequently Asked Questions
What is Personal Injury?
Personal injury is an area of law covering accidents and injuries that cause a person physical and/or emotional harm, allowing the victim to pursue claims and lawsuits against the wrongdoer responsible for the accident and injury.
Do I have a Personal Injury Case? If So, how much is it Worth?
Whether you have a personal injury case can depend on the circumstances surrounding the accident and injury. The value of your claim depends on your “damages”. This can include special damages – such as medical bills and lost wages, and general damages – such as pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of consortium. Call us today for a free consultation to learn whether you have a personal injury or auto accident case and understand what your claim could be worth.
Should I Talk to the At-Fault Party’s Insurance Company?
Generally, No. You should not speak to the At-Fault Party’s insurance if you have a potential claim against the At-Fault party. The At-Fault party’s insurance will typically look out for their own best interest in mind. Therefore, it is best to first speak to a personal injury attorney to understand your rights before speaking to an insurance company. We offer a free consultation and will help you understand your rights if you are involved in an auto accident or personal injury.
How do I pay for a lawyer in a personal injury case?
Aydin Law Firm handles auto accident and personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. The same is true for most auto accident and personal injury firms.
What is a “contingency fee”?
Contingency fee means that you do not pay attorney fees until your case either settles or reaches a final verdict in your favor – at which point the attorney or law firm is paid a percentage from the settlement or final verdict. The amount the attorney will be paid is usually outlined in the retainer agreement.
What if the accident happened on the job?
If an accident occurred on the job in California, or “arising out of and in the course of employment”, you may be entitled to claims of both personal injury claim and worker’ compensation claim – depending on the circumstances surrounding your injury. Speak to a dedicated attorney at Aydin Law today for a free consultation to learn if you are entitled to both types of claims.
