  • FAQ

    • How do I know if I have a personal injury case?
      If you were injured or if someone you love died due to another person, company, or entity’s negligent or wrongful conduct, you have grounds for a personal injury (or wrongful death) case. To bring a successful claim, you will have to prove that another person or party owed you a duty of care, failed to uphold that duty of care, and therefore caused you injury and damages. For example, drivers have a duty of care to keep others on the road safe by following the law and taking reasonable actions to avoid accidents. When a driver violates this duty of care—by texting while driving or driving while drunk, for example—and causes an accident, the injured victims can file claims against the at-fault driver.
    • What are damages?
      Damages are any losses you sustain due to the accident. They can be either economic or non-economic in nature, and might include things like medical bills, lost income/wages, disability, pain and suffering, and future care costs. The exact damages you may be able to recover will depend on the specifics of your situation. We recommend that you speak to one of our attorneys during a free, no-obligation consultation to learn more.
    • How much does a personal injury lawyer cost?
      Many people are understandably concerned about the cost of hiring a lawyer. After all, when you’re already dealing with the financial challenges caused by the accident, the idea of hiring an attorney and paying for legal services can seem like an added burden. But when you work with Scott Law Firm, there are no upfront or out-of-pocket expenses because we provide our services on a contingency fee basis, meaning we only collect attorneys’ fees if/when we win your case. If we do not recover a settlement or verdict on your behalf, you do not pay.
    • Do I really need an attorney to file a personal injury claim?
      While you are not required by law to work with an attorney in filing your claim, it is strongly recommended that you do. This is because the insurance company will likely be working actively against you. Their goal is to do everything they can to dispute, devalue, or deny your claim. If you speak directly to the insurance adjuster, you might accidentally admit fault, downplay your injuries and damages, or otherwise compromise your rights. But by having an experienced attorney on your side, you not only have someone who will fight back against tricky insurance company tactics, but you can also focus on what matters most—healing—while your legal team handles the details of your case. Most people who work with an attorney during their injury claim receive higher settlements and, in the event the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement, your attorney will be ready to represent you at trial.
