Time To Fight For Full Compensation
In personal injury cases, insurance companies come in with their actuary tables, their small print policies, and their adjusters. They look for ways to save money without giving a second thought to the fact that there is a person involved, someone who is struggling because of a serious injury. All they care about is their bottom line.

Personal Injury FAQ
Personal injury claims are complex. At Palazzo Law Firm, our attorneys are committed to helping you understand the process. We are happy to answer any questions you have. To start with, here are answers to some of the most common questions about personal injury cases.
Do I Need A Lawyer?
While you do not need a lawyer to handle your personal injury claim, there are many good reasons to hire one. First of all, a lawyer can prevent you from being taken advantage of by the insurance company and help you get a fair settlement. A lawyer is truly invested in getting you as much compensation as possible. Personal injury cases are handled on a contingency basis. That means the lawyer will not get paid unless you get compensation. Lawyers are typically paid a percentage of the compensation you receive, so a lawyer will want to fight to get you everything you deserve. Furthermore, an experienced lawyer will have been through this process many times before and knows how to move forward efficiently.
What If The Insurance Company Offers A Fair Settlement?
The real question is, how do you know the settlement offer is fair? Understand that insurance companies are motivated by their bottom lines. They tend to do whatever they can to underpay personal injury claims. Sure, the settlement may seem reasonable on the surface, but will it truly cover all the current and future expenses related to your injuries? If you take that money and it runs out, you will not be able to go back and ask for more.
How Much Compensation Will I Get?
This question cannot be answered specifically until your case is carefully evaluated. Ultimately, you should receive enough money to cover all of your medical bills and any future medical costs related to the accident. You should also be compensated for lost wages. If you are unable to return to your job and must take a lower paying job or cannot work at all, you should be compensated for all the wages you will lose. You should also get money for the pain and suffering caused by the accident. A dedicated lawyer will make certain you get all the money you are entitled to.
Will My Case Go To Trial?
The majority of personal injury cases do not go to trial. However, it is often difficult to predict at the outset whether or not your case will need to be argued in front of a judge and jury. You want to have an attorney on your side who prepares for trial from the very start and has a record of courtroom success. If you represent yourself or work with an attorney who has never argued a case at trial, the insurance company will know. Often it is the threat of trial that leads to an insurance company paying a fair amount. If that threat is not real, the insurance company may attempt to offer a very low settlement, or none at all.
