FAQ’s

What should I do after I’m involved in an accident?

Render aid to anyone injured and cooperate with law enforcement. Never admit fault at the scene, notify your own insurance company and seek medical attention if necessary. Consult with legal counsel immediately, initial consultations are always free at DeWitt, Algorri & Algorri.

How long do I have to make a claim?

Time limits vary depending on your circumstances and the identity of whoever caused your injuries. Never rely on what others may tell you, consult with an attorney immediately.

How much is my case worth?

Any lawyer who tells you what your case may be worth at the time of retention simply doesn’t know what they are talking about because the evidence necessary to make any such evaluation is often not fully developed or prepared. The nature of your injury, your prognosis, your wage loss, and continuing disability and the ultimate effect this incident may have had on your life all need to be definitely ascertained to make any such evaluation.

How to choose a lawyer

Although many lawyers and law firms claim to be personal injury “specialist” they, in fact, may not be a trial lawyer up to the task. Insurance companies have unlimited resources and are no different than the playground bully who only respects blunt force and skill. They know who to look out for and whether your lawyer is up to the job. When was the last time the lawyer tried a case and who was it against? What kind of case was it and what was the result? Has the lawyer tried a case involving your type of injury or circumstance before? Is the lawyer a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates? What is their reputation in the legal community? Do they have the resources to pay for all experts and costs? And does the lawyer have a record of State Bar discipline located on www.calbar.org.

How long does the process take?

Depends upon many factors including the length of your recovery and whether the wrongdoer denied responsibility. A trial date can usually be secured approximately 2 years from the date of the incident.

Will my case have to go to court?

Over 90% of all cases settle when they are diligently worked up for trial.
