How do I know if I have a case after an auto accident?

These three things typically determine whether you have a personal injury case: if someone else was fully or partially liable for the accident, if you and/or the at-fault party have insurance that we can recover from, and if you have damage to your vehicle and were injured in the accident.

Do I have to seek medical treatment?
If you’ve been injured, it is always best to seek medical attention and follow the advice given by your medical provider.
How long do I have to file a personal injury case?

You have two years from the date of the incident to file a claim after an auto accident. If the accident involved a governmental or public entity, the statute of limitation is different, giving you only 6 months to file a case.

For a slip and fall case, you have two years from the date of the incident.

One year to file a dog bite case.

Medical malpractice cases have various stipulations that can affect the timeline you have to follow. If you suspect medical malpractice, please call us immediately for a free case evaluation.

Should I talk to the insurance adjusters? What about my own insurance company?

No, insurance adjusters are trained to find reasons in your statement to withhold money from you. It is best to allow your attorney to manage all communication with the insurance adjusters until they advise you otherwise.

What if I was partly at fault for the accident?
You may still have a case. If we can prove the accident was caused by another driver’s negligence, we can take your case to litigation.
How long does it take to settle my claim?
Every case is different. It will depend on the injuries sustained.
Do I need a lawyer for a personal injury case?
It is helpful in ensuring that you get maximum compensation from the insurance companies involved.
How do you get paid?

On a contingency basis, our fees don’t come due until the case has been settled. Once the case is settled, the money you receive will be used to pay your medical bills, our fees, and your compensation for pain and suffering. We will never take more money than our clients. In the rare event that our fee is higher than your final settlement, we will lower our fees.

Who pays you?
The insurance companies that we recover from.
Do you cover property damage/damage to my vehicle?
We assist in getting your property damage claim resolved and help with GAP insurance if applicable. This is at a courtesy to our clients; we do not take a fee for handling property damage claims.
Why should I hire you vs another attorney?

AJ Law is a boutique firm that provides a hands-on experience for our clients. Here at AJ Law, you will get a high level of attention to detail on your case and will have direct access to your attorney.

Our attorneys have years of experience in personal injury cases. We are able to litigate your case in course if needed, which every law firm cannot do.

This gives our firm a huge advantage in understanding the way insurance companies think, allowing us to get our clients higher settlements.

Most of our clients are referred to us by former satisfied clients. We will do everything in our power to help our clients including lowering our fees if necessary and handling parts of their case, such as property damage claims, which many other firms will not do.
