Questions to Ask Before Retaining An Injury Lawyer
What will Preszler Injury Lawyers do for me?
Preszler Law Firm’s personal injury lawyers will handle all aspects of your injury case. We have a great deal of experience in dealing directly with insurance companies where we act on behalf of our clients in obtaining the medical information they are requesting and determine what documents they, in fact, are entitled to. Our number one objective in addition to helping clients obtain the settlement they deserve, is to take care of all the legalities surrounding your injury claim so that you are able to focus on your recovery and getting your health back in order. Hiring a personal injury lawyer also helps you navigate the complexities of filing insurance claims – and doing so in such a way to help maximize your potential settlement amount.
Why wouldn’t I settle directly with my insurance company?
Before agreeing to settle directly with your insurance company, you should always take an extra step to determine if what they are offering is fair or is the right amount of compensation. If your insurance company has made you an offer, contact the law offices of Preszler Law Firm today before you make a decision to accept. If you have already settled with your insurance company but you feel that you may have been misled, call us today for a free initial consultation. Having an experienced personal injury lawyer on your side to help guide you with options is a great way to ensure that you are able to obtain a fair and justified settlement amount. We recommend that you contact a lawyer prior to settling anything with your insurance company for this reason.
How do I know if I have a case?
Every injury case varies from one to another – based on their own sets of facts, how the injury happened and who is at-fault for the level of injury sustained. In order to determine whether you have a case, we offer free initial consultations with one of our personal injury lawyers. We will assess the facts and determine whether your case has merit or not and give you advice and guidance on next steps. When you call our office, please make sure to have as much possible information about the accident, injury and the parties involved as this will help us determine the best course of action. After our initial consultation, you will receive a professional opinion from one of our personal injury lawyers who will inform you about your case as well as your rights.
How much time do I have to start an action?
The Statute of Limitations in Nova Scotia gives a general limitation period of two (2) years but each case is dependent on the details and there may be issues with the limitation running longer or other aspects required in respect of notice provisions. The best way to protect yourself is to call Preszler Injury Lawyers immediately to discuss your personal injury matter.
What if I cannot afford to hire a Lawyer?
If you have seen our advertisements, you know that one of our slogans is “You Don’t Pay Unless We Win!”. At Preszler Injury Lawyers, you do not pay us anything, unless we are successful at recovering compensation for your damages from the at fault party.
How do I know if we will be successful?
No lawyer can give you a guarantee that they will be successful. Although it is not possible to guarantee success, we do not take cases that we do not feel we can win. We use our years of experience to formulate the best possible case for our clients. Our consultation is 100% FREE and when you hire our firm, we do not take any money upfront from you and therefore do not add to your financial burden in any way. The personal injury lawyers of Preszler Injury Lawyers take pride in the fact that we assist you in your time of need by providing peace of mind rather than adding to the burden of stress in these very stressful situations.
