Your Questions Answered: Personal Injury FAQs

Our attorneys focus on the tough legal battles, allowing you to care for yourself and your well-being. To help you get started in the recovery process, here are the answers to some common questions our firm receives from victims.
What is covered under personal injury law?
If you have suffered a serious injury that is not your fault, you may have a claim. An attorney will work with you to establish who is at fault for your injuries and the best way to seek compensation for your injuries.
What damages can I recover?
Damages can include compensation for medical bills, lost time at work and vehicle repair costs, as well as emotional or psychological suffering.
Do I need a lawyer to file a person injury claim?
While some people choose to file a claim directly with their insurance company, it is typically in your best interest to work with an attorney who can negotiate on your behalf. Insurance companies are likely to look for ways to reduce your settlement; a lawyer can make sure you are not short-changed in the process.
How much compensation am I entitled to?
No one can guarantee the outcome of your case. However, when determining the cause and costs of your accident, Donner Applewhite Attorneys at Law will work diligently to discover the small details of your case that can make big differences in the compensation you receive.
