Car Accident Frequently Asked Questions

There are many important questions that need to be answered after you have been in a car accident. Some of your most pressing questions may include:

How do I pay my medical bills after a car accident?

How much will I get for my car after an accident?

The at-fault driver was not cited in my car accident. Can I still pursue a claim?

Will I have to pay any money for an attorney to handle my case?

Will my car accident case go to trial?

The below questions are some of the other most commonly asked by our clients. Please feel free to bookmark this page and visit often as it is updated regularly.

Do I need a car accident lawyer?

Simply stated, it will depend on the seriousness of your wreck. While you are not required to hire a lawyer to represent your interests, it is important to understand that handling your own case will require you to navigate a very complicated system. If you do not know the intricate details of filing a claim to recover for your injuries, you may miss out on valuable compensation. In most cases, you will be up against a large insurance company with a massive amount of resources dedicated to paying you as little as possible for your financial losses.

How are lawyers who specialize in auto accidents paid?

Almost all personal injury attorneys work on contingency. This means that their clients do not pay any fees to their attorneys 1.) unless the case is resolved to their client’s satisfaction, and 2.) the fee is paid out of the amount recovered. Therefore, if you are worried about coming out-of-pocket to pay your attorney, don’t be.

What can I be compensated for as a result of my car crash?

Generally, claimants can recover all expenses and costs incurred as a result of the accident. This usually means lost wages, past and future medical expenses, property damage, and pain and suffering.

Won’t my insurance company do what’s best for me?

In theory, your insurance company should be working very hard to protect your interests and maximize your recovery. Unfortunately, this rarely happens. The reason is because the less insurance companies pay out, the more profitable they are. And in many cases, you will be looking to your own insurance company for compensation (e.g. when the other driver does not have insurance or does not have enough insurance to cover your damages).

How do I pick the best lawyer for me?

This is not easy because for most people they have never hired a personal injury attorney before. And it is certainly a very personal decision. However, we recommend that you hire an attorney you feel comfortable with. Experience and past results are two other factors worth looking at, as they often indicate a law firm’s ability to take a case as far as necessary for a fair result.

Client Reviews

I was in a head-on collision last year that put me in a wheelchair with a fractured femur. I needed an attorney and my cousin recommended this firm because he had used Briant Mildenhall for his accident.

After a head–on collision I had extremely serious injuries to my back and neck, and some internal injuries. I was airlifted to the hospital and started a huge amount of medical expenses accumulating. I hired a lawyer recommended by a friend but I was not satisfied. My cousin told me about this...

After my car accident, I was looking for an attorney and came across the name Katz Personal Injury Lawyers. My intuition told me to call. I called in and Briant Mildenhall talked to me.

I am 100% satisfied. I called Rob the day after the accident. Everything he said that would happen did, every step of the way. He went beyond what we needed him to do. I would definitely use him again and recommend him to anyone who needs a lawyer.

Robert Katz isn't your average personal injury lawyer. He has specialized knowledge and experience that the others don't.
