How much money can I get from the insurance companies for my injuries?
At Hewitt & Salvatore, PLLC, our goal is to get you a fair amount that will ease your financial burden. The amount of your settlement will depend on many factors. The cost of your medical care to date, any income lost as a result of your injuries, and the expected cost of your ongoing medical care will be evaluated in determining a fair settlement amount. Also, you may be eligible to collect compensation for pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and other types of abstract damages. Our West Virginia auto accident lawyers will put together a financial assessment and make sure we are in agreement about the amount before we proceed.
How much will it cost Hewitt & Salvatore as my legal representatives?
We charge nothing for your initial consultation, so this is a great way to talk more in-depth about what we can do for you. As far as payment is concerned, we do not ask for any amount upfront, not even a deposit or legal retainer. We understand how stressful your financial situation can be when you are trying to find a way to afford medical care for your injuries. So, we work on contingency only, which means you do not have to worry about paying our fees until the accident claim is settled or a verdict is reached in court.
What should I tell the insurance companies?
Generally, the less you say, the better off you may be. Beware that the insurance companies — both your own and the other driver’s – are recording the details of your conversations. If you are worried that you may say something that could affect your settlement, it is best not to talk to them at all. Your Hewitt & Salvatore, PLLC car accident attorney can handle all of the communication for you, with your best interests in mind.
If I am partially at fault, can I still collect a settlement?
It is possible to collect compensation for an auto accident that was caused by negligence on both parties, but the settlement amount will be determined on a case-by-case basis and dependent upon the degree of fault.
