Personal Injury FAQ:
Common Client Questions

Personal injury litigation is a complex process. Our experienced personal injury lawyers can work effectively to recover monetary losses resulting from your injury. We litigate claims involving motorcycle accidents, motor vehicle accidents, water craft accidents, construction site accidents, child abuse and trucking accidents. Below we have compiled a list of common questions past personal injury clients have had. For information that is more specific to your case, contact us to arrange a case consultation and evaluation.

Do I have a case?

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury as a result of another individual's or organization's carelessness, negligence, or willful misconduct, you may have a valid personal injury lawsuit. In order to successfully recover fair compensation, our attorneys must prove that: 1) you are injured; 2) your injury was not pre-existing; and 3) your injury is the result of another's actions. To have our lawyers evaluate your claim, contact Chanfrau & Chanfrau today.

How much is my case worth?

Each case is unique and must be valued individually. Factors that affect the value of a case include the degree of the defendant's fault, the nature and extent of the injuries, the length of treatment and recovery time, whether there is comparative fault, and whether punitive damages are appropriate. Clients may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, rehabilitation costs, lost wages, emotional trauma and mental anguish, property damage, disfigurement, and pain and suffering.

Will my case go to trial?

At the earliest stages of a personal injury lawsuit, it is impossible to predict when, or even whether, your case will settle. To ensure that you are justly compensated, we cannot initiate settlement negotiations until your medical treatment is complete. Whereas many law firms handle their cases intending to dispose of them primarily with fast settlements, our attorneys are willing and able to bring your claim to trial to maximize your return.

How long will litigation take?

The answer to this question depends greatly on the court jurisdiction where your claim will be filed, the extent of your injuries, and the amount of treatment necessary for you to heal. In exchange for settling with an insurance company, a plaintiff must sign a release stating that he or she will no longer attempt to recover money from the insurance company or defendant. It is important that you are certain of your injuries and necessary treatment before signing such a release. Resolving a case prematurely often results in a smaller recovery.
