Common Questions Regarding Personal Injury Law

When you or a loved one is negligently injured, there are many questions you need to be answered. Although we can't list every possible answer and solution, Rokisky Law wants to give you access to some of the most frequently asked questions to our Personal Injury attorneys.

Do I Need to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

Insurance companies will assure you that they will treat you fairly and it is unnecessary to hire an attorney. However, this is rarely the case.

In personal injury cases, you should understand that insurance companies have a team of lawyers working for them. They DO NOT represent you. Their job is to minimize the insurance companies’ losses by aggressively defending claims, offering “quick settlements” and low balling offers.

How long does it take to finalize a settlement?

Every case is different which makes it difficult to predict how long a lawsuit will last. A primary factor in any lawsuit includes the availability of information and the willingness of those individuals involved in the case to provide us with the information needed to pursue your claim. Cases can vary in length from weeks, months, even years in some instances. The more cooperation our office receives, generally the quicker it is to resolve the matter. We can assure you that your case will never be delayed by this office, and we will keep you informed at all stages of your case.

The accident was not severe, should I get a personal injury lawyer?

Even a 5 MPH collision could cause a variety of damage to the back, neck and spine. Regardless of how simple you think your case is, you should always engage the services of a personal injury attorney.
