A personal injury lawyer is something most people won’t need more than once in their life. Unfortunately, this makes your knowledge of the personal injury court system relatively sparse, often making it difficult to know what questions you should ask to familiarize yourself with the process. That’s why Northland Injury Law wants to help by advising you on what questions you need to answer before beginning your case.
1. How is the Law Firm Paid?
Easily the most crucial question is how payment for your personal injury lawyer services will work. At Northland Injury Law in Kansas City, our team works on a contingency fee basis. Therefore, you pay no legal fees upfront, and instead, we collect fees if and when your compensation is secured.
2. How Long Can I Wait to File Suit?
The time limitations of your case (otherwise called the “statute of limitations”) greatly
depend upon two essential things: the type of case you have and the state in
which you’re filing your case. Typically, you have one year to file for personal injuries and two years for property damage in Kansas. Alternatively, in Missouri, you usually have three years to file for personal injury and property damage. Our best advice is to contact a personal injury lawyer at Northland Injury Law early on after an accident and after receiving medical care.
3. Will I Have to Go to Trial?
The personal injury lawyers at Northland Injury Law in Kansas City are all trial lawyers. This means they prepare for each case as if it were going to trial. Ultimately, the decision to go to trial is up to you. Whatever choice you make about going to trial, the team at Northland Injury Law will offer their advice and expertise to help you receive compensation.
