What can I do to help my case?
The most important thing you can do for your case is to provide us with any and all information that pertains to the case in any way. Sometimes information that seems insignificant may prove to be significant. Let us decide what is relevant or not relevant, and give us full information about yourself, your history and background, your medical care, etc. If you are under medical care, it’s important to follow all of the doctor’s recommendations and be a ‘model patient’. Avoid speaking to insurance adjusters without advisement by us. Lastly, family members may advise you as they wish to be helpful, but it is best to follow the expert legal advice of a qualified legal professional.What is the definition of personal injury?
This is the legal term used in cases where injuries have been sustained, and compensation is being sought. The term ‘personal injury’ means any harm, illness or injury that a person sustains as a result of any occurrence or accident. As personal injury lawyers, we specialize in this area.I’ve been injured; how do I know if I have a case?
Some injuries have causes that are clearly obvious. Others can be caused by multiple factors and entities. The only way to determine whether you have a legal case is to consult with an experienced personal injury law firm. The case evaluation is free, and you will be informed whether you have grounds for a lawsuit.If you take my case, how and when do I pay for your services?
Personal Injury Lawsuits are handled on a contingency basis. This means that when and if we are successful in winning your case, only then will we collect our fee, as a percentage of the total recovery. An attorney's services normally involve research, investigation and case preparation. We will always discuss our fees prior to beginning your case.Should I have an attorney when dealing with my own insurance company?
Our consultation with you is provided at no charge, so it never hurts to find out how Almasri Law Firm may be able to help you. Most often, we are able to achieve better resolution than you would receive on your own. Remember that no matter how nice insurance adjusters sound on the phone, their goal is to pay you as little as possible. The insurance company isn’t necessarily concerned about what is best for you. They rarely clarify your legal rights, and may not even fully understand them. And they may not give you a fair assessment of the value of your case. They count on the fact that you will accept their offer – even when it’s not enough to cover all your expenses long term, as well as pain and suffering and reduced quality of life. An experienced attorney will find every category of damages that applies to your case, and determine how to support those damages with admissible evidence.How long will a law suit take?
Each case is individual. Cases can last for several months or even up to several years depending on your case’s circumstances. We will discuss your case specifics.Can the attorney settle my case without my knowing?
No, we cannot settle your case without your approval. Only you have the right to make the final decision regarding settlement of your case. We will notify you of all other offers of settlement before and after the trial. You should consult with your attorney regarding whether to accept a settlement.What is my auto case worth?
Each auto case is unique. If someone else’s negligence caused the accident and resulted in injuries, we can help you obtain payment you are entitled for medical expenses, future medical expenses, lost wages, future lost wages and pain and suffering.What should I do if I am in a motor vehicle accident?
The police should immediately be called so that a report may be made at the scene. Medical treatments should be immediately received for any injuries that you may be suffering from. Keep in mind that the shock of being in a collision many times hides any pain until hours or even days later. Do not admit fault or otherwise speak to the other party except to exchange insurance and personal information. If possible take pictures or make notes about the accident. Gather contact information from any witnesses. After the accident, do not speak to the at-fault driver's insurance company about your injury and do not consent to a recorded statement. Seek our expert legal advice as soon as possible.Should I take the settlement my insurance company is offering me?
You should not take any settlements offered by an insurance company without first speaking with our experienced team. Insurance companies typically offer a minimal amount of money in return for your signature stating that you will not sue them. Never take an insurance check without first consulting us.What is Premises Liability?
