What Does a Personal Injury Attorney Do?
You file a personal injury lawsuit when someone else has committed a civil wrong, also called a tort, that has caused you injuries and damages. Newport News personal injury lawyer Corey Pollard tries to right these wrongs for his clients by negotiating with insurance companies and, if that fails, using the civil justice system.
We know how to represent accident victims so that they obtain maximum compensation for their damages and losses. We obtain results for Newport News injury clients by:
- Investigating all aspects of the event or accident. This includes interviewing witnesses, obtaining witness testimony, reviewing surveillance video and photographs, collecting police reports, and consulting with an accident reconstruction expert when necessary.
- Obtaining all relevant medical records.
- Consulting with your treating physicians and other medical experts to determine the extent of your injuries, your level of permanent impairment, and the medical care that will be required.
- Evaluating the value of your personal injury and putting together a demand package after you have reached maximum medical improvement. This demand package is sent to the insurance company and its attorneys.
- Negotiating with the defendants to try to resolve your case.
- Consulting with additional experts, such as vocational rehabilitation providers
- Preparing you and relevant witnesses for trial
- Representing you at trial if a fair settlement is not offered
Our clients have suffered serious injuries and even death due to someone else’s negligence, recklessness, or criminal act. They’re not interested in trying to game the system. They want what we all want: to recover and regain their health, property, and ability to work and support their loved ones. And as your personal injury attorney in Newport News we’ll treat your case like it is our own.
How Long Does a Personal Injury Lawsuit Take?
Every personal injury case is different. The length of time your case may take depends on the extent of your injuries, how long it takes you to recover and reach maximum medical improvement, what legal issues are in dispute, and whether the insurer makes a fair settlement offer. Many cases can take two years or more to resolve.
As a personal injury victim in Newport News, you only have one shot at obtaining fair compensation for your damages. Patience, preparation, and injury lawyer Corey Pollard are the key to giving yourself the best chance of resolving your case successfully.
How Much Can I Win in Compensation for My Personal Injury?
The amount of money you can receive for your injuries or disability depends on the type of case you have and the severity of your damages. Some of our clients receive thousands of dollars, while others can receive hundreds of thousands of dollars or even millions.
If you or a loved was injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence or recklessness, contact Newport News personal injury lawyer Corey Pollard for an estimate of what your case may be worth.
How Much is a Personal Injury Lawyer’s Fee?
Many accident victims have to take on an insurance company or businesses that has significant resources to fight the personal injury claim. We believe that everyone should have access to high-quality legal representation, no matter their income or background. That’s why we accept cases on a contingency-fee basis. We do not receive a fee unless we get you compensation – either through a settlement or a verdict by a judge or jury. Our fee is a percentage of your settlement or recovery. We do not charge on an hourly basis. Nor do we charge for a consultation.
