Personal Injury FAQ
Our Flint Injury Lawyers Have the Answers You Need
Navigating the process of filing an insurance claim and deciding whether to move forward with a personal injury lawsuit is anything but easy. You probably have a lot of questions and may be uncertain about what to do next. Fortunately, our team at Jakeway Injury Law is here to help. In addition to offering a free confidential consultation to discuss your case, we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions about personal injury cases in Michigan. While every situation is different, we hope these offer some clarity regarding your options after a serious accident or injury.
What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Handle?
A personal injury lawyer can handle a number of things for you. From taking over communication with the insurance company to investigating the cause of your accident, a lawyer can work to help you recover complete financial compensation for your injuries – all while you focus your energy on healing. Instead of worrying about whether a settlement offer is fair or wondering if you’ll be held responsible for an accident you didn’t cause, you can concentrate on recovering while your attorney handles the rest. Our goal is to get you the best outcome so you can face a brighter future.
Our personal injury team handles cases in the Flint area and beyond, including car accidents, construction accidents, motorcycle accidents, boating accidents, and aviation accidents. We can also help if you’ve been injured because of medical malpractice or a defective product, have been harmed on another’s property, or have lost someone you love. Our lawyers are here to help in every way possible.
What Is My Case Worth?
No two cases are the same, and the value of yours may depend on numerous factors. The severity of your injuries, the cost of medical care, whether you’ll need ongoing care, how your injuries have impacted your ability to work, and the emotional trauma you’ve endured are all issues that can influence the value of a personal injury lawsuit. We’ll be happy to talk to you about your case when you call for a free consultation.
Will My Case Go to Trial?
The vast majority of personal injury lawsuits settle before they get to trial. Some settle during trial. Whether your case goes to court will depend on the defendant/s and whether they are willing to accept responsibility for what they’ve done or if they choose to fight your claim. Because we have extensive experience in this realm, both inside and out of the courtroom, our attorneys are ready to take whatever approach is necessary to secure the results each client needs.
What Will It Cost to Work with Your Firm?
Many people worry that they cannot afford to hire a personal injury attorney. At Jakeway Injury Law, we handle these cases on contingency, which means we only get paid if our clients do. If we take on your case, you won’t have to worry about forwarding the costs of an investigation or paying a retainer. Our fees are typically paid out of a resulting settlement or award, based on a predetermined percentage. Plus, there are no surprises or hidden costs.
