What Does An Alton Injury Lawyer Do?

When you call a personal injury lawyer, they’ll ask some questions to see if you’re eligible for a settlement. If you’re eligible then the lawyer might take you on as a client. Your Alton injury lawyer will help you gather evidence. The evidence is what helps them assess damages, both compensatory and punitive.

 

Filing an Alton Personal Injury Lawsuit

Throughout the civil lawsuit process, your Alton personal injury lawyer will likely try to make a settlement out of court. It’s a lot more work to prove liability through a lawsuit than to settle out of court. It may benefit you to ask your lawyer if you’re properly mitigating your injuries, as well. A successful trial will mean you are awarded money for the losses you suffered from the accident. A wrongful death lawsuit might affect how the money is allocated.

Each law firm has its own system for paying legal fees. A contingency fee system is common for personal injury firms. The amount you pay your lawyer will depend on many factors, such as the amount of work required for the case or whether there are other victims involved (see multidistrict litigation and bellwether trial).

 

How Long Does A Personal Injury Case Take To Settle in Alton, IL?

First, make sure to contact a lawyer well before the statute of limitations for your state expires.  The timeframe of a personal injury case varies. It will probably take a minimum of 6 months for you to receive a settlement. However, you can expect the process to take closer to 18 months to settle on average. Factors that can affect the timeframe of a personal injury lawsuit include the cooperation of each party and the schedule of the judge. Be sure to ask your Alton injury lawyer how long your specific case will take.
