Peoria Personal Injury Attorneys

An injury accident can happen when you least expect it. You may get hit by a car while walking down the road. Your baby may suffer injuries during labor and delivery. You could get bitten by your neighbor’s dog. You could slip and fall at the grocery store.

In these situations, there may be other parties responsible for your injuries. If someone else is determined to be liable for your injuries, they could be forced to pay for medical expenses, lost wages, damage to vehicles and other property, pain and suffering, and more. 

However, getting paid for all your damages is not as easy as it may seem. There is a process involved, and insurance companies like to lowball victims. They do not want to pay up. That is why you need the Peoria personal injury lawyers from Saavedra Law Firm on your side to fight for you. You can count on us to get you the compensation you deserve.

What to Ask a Personal Injury Attorney

When you hire a personal injury lawyer to take on your case, you want to ensure you become familiar with the process and your obligations as a victim. Here are some questions that you might want to ask your lawyer:

  • Do I have a strong case? Is there a strong possibility that the other party is at fault?  Do you even have a viable personal injury claim at all?
  • Will I need more evidence? Photos, witness statements, police reports, medical bills, medical reports, and other documents may be needed to support your claim. 
  • How long will my case take to complete? Personal injury cases can take a year or longer to finalize. What does your lawyer think about the timeline?
  • What is your fee for representing me? Personal injury lawyers typically only charge you if you win. They then take a percentage of your award, ranging from 33% to 40%. Make sure you are aware of the fees ahead of time. 

Valuing a Personal Injury Case

It can be hard to put an exact value on a claim, especially at first. Each case has different circumstances, so your case may be worth a few thousand dollars, or it could be worth a few million. 

Your lawyer will evaluate multiple factors, such as your economic damages. These include the cost of your medical treatment, lost wages from missing work, and damage to your property. These costs can be determined simply by totaling up the numbers. However, non-economic damages, like disability, scarring, disfigurement, and pain and suffering, are difficult to put a dollar number on. However, your lawyer may use techniques and calculators such as multipliers to determine a fair total for all your damages.
