With more than 15 years of combined experience, our team of Dunedin personal injury lawyers at the Paulsen Law Group has encountered numerous questions from clients who have concerns regarding their case. We take the time to make sure you are fully informed regarding your rights and options.
Our goal is to help you get through this in the most favorable way possible. Below, we have provided the answers to some of the commonly asked questions we have received. We hope that this proves beneficial to you.
First of all, ask yourself a few questions: "Was I injured? Was the accident preventable? Could it have been avoided? Was a negligent person the cause of the situation?" If you answered yes to any of these questions, you very well could have a case. The most important thing to do next is to consult an attorney on the matter. The Paulsen Law Group offers free case evaluations in both English and Spanish.
If you were injured, chances are you might have to pay some costly medical bills. When another person's carelessness caused your pain and suffering, you should not be responsible for paying for their mistakes. Compensation can help cover the costs of medical expenses, lost wages, property damages, and more.
If you are in pain, however minor, don't wait to get medical treatment. It is unclear whether the injury you suffered might have lasting effects. Don't wait too long to retain legal counsel. Waiting could cause vital information to be lost.
Generally, most cases we handle are settled without ever going to court. However, our attorneys are more than willing to go to trial to stand up for your rights, should the occasion arise.
This depends largely on your case. Often, the severity of your injury is taken into account. The only way to determine for sure how much compensation you may be entitled to is to consult with a lawyer. Rest assured, our attorneys have the experience and skill it takes to help you.
Our lawyers work on contingency fees. This means you will not have to pay legal fees unless we win your case. All the charges will be taken from the compensation awarded.
