Frequently Asked Questions

Personal Injury Attorneys Serving Murrieta and Southern California

Filing a personal injury claim can be confusing and overwhelming, and you might not even know where to start. At the Maineri Law Firm in Murrieta, CA, our clients often have many similar questions, and we are happy to provide the answers. Contact our office for additional information.

Q

Do I Have a Valid Personal Injury Claim?

Answer: One of the primary ways that personal injury claims are resolved is through the determination of whether someone else's negligence contributed to your injuries. A person can be negligent if they do something that a reasonable person would not do or if they failed to do something that a reasonable person would do. If that action or failure to act contributed to your injuries, then you may have a claim. If you are unsure whether you have a claim, consider talking to a lawyer to learn more. The Maineri Law Firm offers no-cost consultations to discuss a potential case with you.

Q

How Much Is My Personal Injury Claim Worth?

Answer: If you were injured by someone else's negligence, you are generally entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other considerations. The potential value of your case, however, will depend on the specifics of your injuries, including your prognosis for making a full physical recovery. An experienced personal injury lawyer can review your situation and help you determine what to reasonably expect from your claim.

Q

What Should I Do When an Insurance Company Insurer Offers a Settlement?

Answer: First, contact an attorney. Having a lawyer review the offer before you accept it is an important way to ensure that the insurance company is not offering a sum that is too low to aid you in recovery. This is especially important for catastrophic injuries because they can require long-term medical care, and they may prevent you from earning a similar salary to what you earned before the accident.

Q

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

Answer: Most personal injury cases are handled on a contingency fee basis, which means that an attorney's payment is dependent on the success of the case, and they are paid nothing unless they win. At our firm, we would be happy to explain to you how our contingency fee scale will apply to your specific situation.

Q

What Should I Look for When Hiring an Attorney?

Answer: One of the first things that you should look for is experience in handling personal injury cases. This knowledge is a great asset when an attorney is guiding you through the process of filing a claim and can be key to courtroom success if negotiation is unsuccessful. Previous success does not guarantee future results, but a track record of favorable settlements and verdicts can indicate that a particular attorney knows how to get results. Another thing to look for is an attorney who will handle your case and communicate with you personally. Not only does this help your attorney get to know your claim and fully understand the impact that your injury will have on your life, but it also means that you can ask any questions that you might have directly.
