WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER I SUFFER AN INJURY?
If you are hurt in an accident, the first thing you should do is seek medical help. Seek medical treatment as soon as possible, and address any immediate medical needs and emergencies. After you are well, you should seek legal advice from a competent injury attorney. It is imperative that personal injury cases are investigated quickly. Delay can cause evidence to be lost or allow insurance companies or the negligible party to take advantage of you. The quicker you consult a personal injury attorney, the quicker you can be compensated for your losses.
IF I AM INJURED, DOES THAT MEAN 1 NEED AN ATTORNEY?
There is no law that says you must hire an attorney on your case. However, if you do not, you will be considered “pro se” and will be held to the same standard as any other attorney. This means that you will have to know the same statutes, rules and procedures that any other attorney must know. It does not hurt to have an extra pair of eyes to help with your case, especially someone who has the legal knowledge required in understand how to navigate through the legal language and justice system.

Therefore, it is recommended to have an attorney to protect your interests and fight for any damages from your accident. If you have been seriously injured and the other party or insurance company is not offering proper compensation for your injuries, hiring a personal injury lawyer is the suggested way to properly and swiftly get the money you deserve.

HOW MUCH WILL AN ATTORNEY COST? HOW DO I PAY FOR AN ATTORNEY?
Most personal injury cases and here at the law firm of Roxell Richards, we handle cases on what’s called a contingency agreement. This usually means that the fee for services usually will not get paid until after your case is favorably resolved on your behalt Additionally, your case expenses including medical expenses and all other expenses that your lawyers has to pay would be deducted as from your recovery amount as well.
WHAT IF I AM CONTACTED BY AN INSURANCE COMPANY OR THE POLICE?
You should never discuss the details of your injury, how or why you were injured until you have consulted with an attorney. Any documents you sign, statements you make or settlements you agree to before meeting with an attorney, can only negatively affect your ability to earn full compensation for your damagaes. Insurance company is not your friend, what you will say will be used against you. If you need help on what you should say or would like us to be your voice, please contact us today.
WHAT ARE MY RIGHTS AFTER I’VE BEEN HURT?
If someone else’s negligence caused you to be hurt, you deserve compensation for all injuries and damages. Your rights matter. Depending on the facts, you may be entitled to more compensation than you think. This is why you need a competent injury attorney to assist you with your case.
WHAT IS MY CASE WORTH?
As you may know by now, each personal injury case is unique. Until your case has been fully investigated, evidence evaluated and gathered and analyzed, do not trust anyone who may tell you the value of your potential case. No one can tell you the value of your case and if they do RUN. Full compensation of damages can include medical bills, mental suffering, pain and suffering, loss of ability to enjoy life, and missed time from work. However, if you need getting a start on your what’s included in the value of your case, please use our personal injury calculator.
WILL MY CASE GO TO TRIAL?
Surprisingly, the majority of cases never reach trial. Roxell Richards and Associates are skillful negotiators and have years of experiences making favorable settlements for our clients. However, if a settlement is not fair to our clients, we can press the opposition in trial. A free consultation can give you a better picture of whether or not your case will go to trial.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR MY CASE TO BE RESOLVED?
It is hard to know how long any case will last off the bat. There is general timetable established for personal injury cases. However, most cases will be settled in a matter of months and could years. Each case is different on the each case because the facts control on what happens and how your legal strategy will play out.
WHAT IF I HAVE ANOTHER ATTORNEY? CAN I GET ANOTHER ATTORNEY?
If you have an attorney and you are not satisfied with your attorney, you can terminate your relationship. However, you should speak with your attorney and communicate any concerns you may have. If these issues cannot be resolved, you should send them a letter in writing terminating your relationship. However, please note your attorney could be entitled to a lien and may file a lien on your case which means that you would have pay them from any recovery your future attorney may obtain for you.

Therefore, it is recommended before you terminate your relationship, find out if your attorney will retain a lien on your case. Here at the Roxell Richards Law firm, we have a “no-lien guarantee” which means that if you are not satisfied with your service and terminate
