Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Why do I need a lawyer to handle my auto accident case?
A. A lawyer works to protect your rights after an auto accident in many ways. Ellem Law Office will immediately obtain any accident or other reports to determine all legally responsible parties. We will promptly identify and put on notice all insurance companies that may provide coverage for your claim. This includes the other driver’s company and your own company in the event you have “medical payments coverage” as well as underinsurance coverage. Many other tasks will be done to obtain the full amount of money you are entitled to under the law. Some of these tasks include helping document your injuries and expenses, preparing a “demand package” to see if the case can be settled and if necessary, filing a lawsuit and preparing for trial.
Q. What is a contingency fee agreement?
A. In a contingency agreement, the lawyer’s fee only gets paid if you recover money from any responsible parties and/or insurance companies. Ellem Law Office offers a competitive contingency fee agreement for auto accident cases, and our initial consultation is always FREE.
Q. How much is my case worth?
A. This question cannot be answered without knowing many details about your case. Ellem Law Office will do a thorough FREE initial consultation with you to learn how the accident happened, the extent of your injuries, and the amount of money you lost from missing work, among many other things. Our ongoing work will determine the amount of medical bills you have both present and in the future, whether your injuries are permanent, whether you have future lost income and the overall effect of the injuries on your life such as the pain and suffering you have gone through.
