SMART QUESTIONS TO ASK WHEN CONSIDERING WHICH THOMASVILLE PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY TO HIRE
To help you prepare for your initial phone call or meeting with a Thomasville personal injury attorney, it is wise to prepare a list of questions that will help you determine if the attorney has the skills and experience necessary to handle your case. The questions listed below are great examples:
- Have you worked on cases like mine before? How many cases like mine have you handled in the past year?
- What is your current case load like? Will you have enough time to devote to my case?
- How much experience do you have trying cases? Are you willing and prepared to try my case, if necessary?
- How accessible are you if I have questions during my case? Can I have your cell phone number?
- What are the biggest challenges in my case? What can you do to overcome them?
- Can you guarantee me a certain amount of money? (No reputable attorney can guarantee you a certain amount of money in your case. If a personal injury attorney tries to make false promises, look for a more trustworthy attorney.)
- Do other law firms give you referrals?
WHAT IS MY THOMASVILLE PERSONAL INJURY CASE WORTH?
Many factors in your Thomasville personal injury case help to determine its value. Some of the most important factors include the extent of your injuries and the length of suffering. Whether you had any pre-existing conditions prior to the current injury can play a role. Also, whether you bear any fault in the accident that led to the injury affects the value of the case. The cost of your medical expenses while treating your injuries and the amount of
insurance or assets the at-fault party has is an important factor in how much you can recover. Finally, where the case will be tried and the experience of your attorney will factor into the value of your case.
Williams Elleby will work tirelessly to help you recover a fair settlement for your Thomasville personal injury case whether it involves minor injuries or catastrophic injuries. We will put our experience to work for you to help you maximize your financial recovery.
WILL I BE ABLE TO SETTLE MY THOMASVILLE PERSONAL INJURY CASE?
Many Thomasville personal injury cases can be settled without having to go to trial. After you finish treating for your injuries, the attorneys at Williams Elleby will request your medical records to get a total amount of your treatment costs. Next, our experienced personal injury attorneys will submit a pre-suit settlement demand to the at-fault insurance company. A pre-suit settlement demand clearly states who the at-fault party is, the extent of your injuries, the cost of treatment, and demands a certain amount of money to settle your personal injury case. The amount we demand will be determined after an in-depth discussion with you.
Sometimes, our Thomasville personal injury attorneys can negotiate a fair recovery for your case after sending a demand, and your case will settle. Unfortunately, there are many times when the at-fault insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement amount. When that occurs, your Thomasville personal injury attorney will file a lawsuit against the at-fault party in your case. When the at-fault party resides in Thomasville, the case will most often be filed in the Thomas County Superior Court.
HOW LONG WILL A THOMASVILLE PERSONAL INJURY LAWSUIT LAST?
A Thomasville personal injury lawsuit can be a lengthy and complicated process, which is why hiring an experienced personal injury attorney is crucial. To begin the process, your personal injury attorney at Williams Elleby will draft a lawsuit for your review and approval. Once filed, the defendant will have 30 days to answer the complaint made by you, the plaintiff. The defendant can either admit or deny the allegations you make against them.
The next phase in the process is the discovery period, which can last at least six months. During this phase, both parties in the lawsuit exchange information by providing written answers to questions, by producing documents and other evidence, and by conducting formal investigations. Depositions may also be conducted during this time.
Next, the judge in the case may order both parties to go through mediation, which is an attempt to settle the case before it goes to trial. During this phase, an unbiased mediator, such as a retired judge, will sit with both sides and try to resolve the matter. If an agreement cannot be reached during mediation, your Thomasville personal injury attorney will prepare the case for trial. The entire process can take as long as a year or two.
