FAQs

Should I hire a lawyer? If you’ve suffered injuries as a result of an accident, it’s generally advised to at least consult a personal injury lawyer. Studies have shown that having a lawyer represent you in your personal injury case is more likely to lead to compensation from the claim and a higher settlement amount.

How much does a lawyer cost? The majority of personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, meaning that there are no upfront legal fees. Rather, a portion of the final settlement or verdict is used to pay attorney fees, which commonly ranges from 30% to 40%.

How long do I have to file a claim? The time limit to file a personal injury claim is known as the statute of limitations, which varies by state. In the United States, it typically ranges from 1 to 6 years, with most states having a 1 or 3 year deadline – all which begin from the date of the injury. If the injury was not discovered right away, some states allow a deadline to begin from the date that the injury was discovered.

How much is my case worth? The average car accident settlement amount is $212,325, and the median settlement amount is $25,000. This data is based on over 3,600 auto accident cases recorded by Thomson Reuters between 2019 and 2024. It should be noted that the median settlement amount is a more accurate representation of the typical car accident settlement because the median amount is not subject to being skewed by very high or low settlement amounts. However, each case is unique, and your claim may be worth more or less depending on various case factors. Consider using an online settlement calculator or consulting a personal injury attorney to estimate the value of your claim.

How long will my case take? Personal injury cases with clear liability and moderate injuries often finalized within 6 to 9 months after medical treatment is complete. However, the amount of time it takes to resolve a case depends on many factors such as the severity of injuries, complexities of the claim, and if the case goes to trial.
