Frequently Asked Questions

What must I prove in order to recover damages in my personal injury?

In order to recover monetary compensation in a personal injury lawsuit, you must prove that you suffered damages (in the form of either physical injury or emotional injury), that the defendant was negligent, i.e. failed to act with "reasonable care," and that the defendant's negligence caused your damages.

What kinds of expenses can be recovered through personal injury lawsuits?

Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be able to recover your medical expenses, including future medical expenses. Your income loss while you recovered from the accident, reimbursement of personal property that was damaged, and compensation for pain and suffering may also be recovered.

How much is my personal injury case worth?

Many factors must be taken into consideration when assessing the potential value of your case, including the circumstances of the incident, the injuries incurred, medical expenses, current and future pay lost from work, and other losses you have suffered relative to your accident. An experienced attorney at RLG can advise you of what your claim could be worth.

Do I still have a claim if my medical bills were paid by the insurance company?

Often the medical bills you incur as a result of an accident are only part of the total damages you may recover; in most cases you are entitled f to compensation for your total damages including your medical bills regardless of whether or not they have been paid by insurance. Additionally, you are entitled to compensation beyond just the expense of your medical bills. Even if your medical bills were paid by insurance, you may still file a claim for your loss of income, permanent disability, damage to property, and future pain and suffering. A lawyer at RLG can explain more about what can be included in a personal injury settlement.

How long does it take to receive a fair settlement offer?

Personal injury lawsuits can vary in length depending on their complexity. Insurance companies may attempt to settle quickly, but chances are the settlement will not be fair enough to cover all present and future losses. An attorney at RLG can thoroughly investigate your claim to assure you get all the money to which you are entitled.

Will I have to go to court?

More than three-quarters of all personal injury cases are settled out of court. Cases only go to trial a personal injury settlement cannot be reached to the satisfaction of both parties. If your suit progresses to this point, the lawyers at RLG needed to present and litigate your case in a court of law and win verdicts in your favor.
