Answering Your Personal Injury Questions

During initial consultations at Palillo Law, our clients often ask similar questions. To help you get started on your recovery journey, we have answered the most commonly asked questions below.

What Types of Injuries Qualify for a Personal Injury Case?

Personal injury claims encompass a wide variety of accidents and situations. Typically, a claim arises when you suffer serious bodily harm or lose a loved one due to another party’s careless or negligent actions. Claims can stem from motor vehicle crashes, fatal accidents or slip-and-fall injuries. An attorney can review the specifics of your accident and determine if you have a valid personal injury case

How Much Is My Injury Worth?

The goal of a personal injury claim is to secure compensation that adequately covers your expenses resulting from the accident, including medical bills, lost wages and other financial losses. The value of your claim depends on the extent of your injuries.

Do I Really Need to Work with a Lawyer?

You may be tempted to avoid working with an attorney to minimize legal fees and recover compensation more quickly. However, insurance companies rarely offer to settle for the true cost of your injuries. What may seem like a fair offer could be far less than the amount you need to cover your ongoing costs. An experienced personal injury lawyer will simplify the process, help you obtain maximum compensation, and protect your rights.

Personal injury cases are accepted on a contingency basis. You do not pay us any attorney fees unless we recover compensation on your behalf. You face no financial risk when you file a claim. Initial case consultations are free and can be conducted in our office, at your home, or in the hospital.

What Can I Expect When I Work with Palillo Law?

We believe that legal assistance should be accessible and straightforward, so we do everything in our power to make the experience easier for you. This may mean speaking with an attorney before visiting our office or setting up appointments as soon as possible after your first phone call. During an initial consultation, you can discuss the details of your accident and your recovery options with an attorney. We will also provide detailed information about our contingency fee structure.
