Frequently Asked Questions – Personal Injury

5 Personal Injury FAQ for Gregory Spektor & Associates P.C.

1. Will My Personal Injury Case Go to Trial?

There is a chance that your case involving a personal injury will go to trial, but most cases involving personal injuries are negotiated outside of court. If the parties can agree to settlement negotiations, a trial may not be necessary. On the other hand, if a compromise cannot be achieved, a trial may be required. It is essential to remember that going to trial can be a procedure that takes a long time and costs a lot of money. A competent personal injury attorney can assist you in determining whether or not going to trial is the right course of action for your particular case.

2. How Can a Personal Attorney Help?

If you’ve been hurt in an accident, hiring a lawyer specializing in personal injury law can assist you in many ways. They can conduct an investigation into your claim, collect evidence, negotiate with insurance companies, prepare documentation, and represent you in court if necessary. An attorney will not only be able to assist you in understanding your legal rights and options, but they will also be able to provide you with advice regarding the best action to take based on the specifics of your situation.

3. Do Pain and Suffering Include Medical Bills?

Damages for pain and suffering are meant to compensate for the physical pain and emotional stress an accident victim has had to go through. These damages differ from medical bills, which are meant to cover the cost of injury-related medical care. Damages for pain and suffering can be given on top of medical bills, but they are not meant to pay for medical care.

4. Can I File a Civil Lawsuit Without an Attorney?

Although bringing civil action without legal representation is possible, doing so is strongly discouraged. A thorough understanding of legal procedures, evidence, and argumentation is necessary to successfully navigate the complexities that can arise during civil disputes. Your best chances for success in court lie with an experienced attorney who can guide you through the system and advocate on your behalf.

5. What Questions will be Asked in a Deposition?

During a deposition, attorneys from both sides of a dispute will provide questions to a witness or party while the witness or party is under oath. These questions and answers will be recorded in a later court proceeding. It is possible that the questions asked will differ from case to case. Still, in general, the questioning will focus on obtaining information and evidence relating to the matter in issue. Questions concerning the accident or injury, the medical treatment received, and any past injuries or medical issues are examples of inquiries that could be asked in a personal injury case.
