FAQs

The following links will provide answers to some frequently asked questions about personal injury law:

Q: How do I know how much my case is worth?

A: The monetary compensation you may obtain for your individual injury depends upon many factors, including the type of injury you suffered, the permanency of your injury, any preexisting injuries, your present and future medical bills, the pain and suffering caused by your injury, your loss of income due to the injury, and your ability to proceed with your life as you did prior to the injury.  A skilled attorney can guide you through the complexity of these factors, which is why it is essential to seek counsel earlier rather than later in the negotiation process.

Q: Should I settle my case with an insurance adjuster?

A: Often, the nature and extent of your injuries are not clear until some time after the accident. An adjuster will try to encourage you to quickly settle based on a “formula.” Do not be misled. Do not settle your case with an insurance adjuster until you have sought the advice of counsel.

Q: Should I try to obtain a partial settlement from the insurance company for my injury?

A: No. An insurance company will only settle if they can dispose of your entire claim.

Q: What are some steps I should take to preserve my rights if I have been injured by another?

A: You can greatly assist in your own recovery if you document everything you can about the injury. For instance, write down everything you remember and keep names, addresses, and phone numbers of all those involved who may have observed the accident. Also, any photographic evidence you can obtain can also be very helpful. Most importantly, talk to a personal injury attorney as soon as possible, before making statements to insurance company representatives, so that your ability to recover will not be jeopardized. Remember, there is a time limit on your right to file a claim.

Q: How do I know if I have a claim?

A: The law applicable to your claim depends upon the type of case. For instance, in a motor vehicle accident scenario, you must be able to prove that another person’s negligence, that is the failure to exercise ordinary care, caused your injury. If your carelessness contributed to your injury, your damages may be reduced proportionately. A knowledgeable personal injury/ auto accident attorney in Atlanta can advise you of the law and whether, under the facts applicable to your case, you have a claim against another for your injuries.

Q: Ever wonder what to do after an automobile accident?

“It came out of nowhere.”

This is frequently heard from people involved in car accidents. Although it’s not true in terms of where a driver came from, car accidents can seemingly come from nowhere and occur when you least expect them.

Car accidents can leave the most level-headed motorists shocked, stunned and more than a little shaken.

The first few calls that you should make after you’ve been involved in a car accident should be to the police, your insurance agent or a personal-injury lawyer. Amid the conflicting advice online, we’ll take a look at what you should do in the event you’re involved in a scrape, smash or other unfortunate car accident.

Q: How Does My Personal Injury Attorney Get Paid?

A: At Kaine Law, we work on a contingency fee basis. A contingency fee means that our personal injury clients do not pay us any money up front. Instead, our personal injury clients simply sign our contingency fee agreement to hire us as their personal injury attorneys and then, we are only compensated if we are able to obtain a personal injury settlement or financial recover / verdict on their behalf.
We only earn a percentage of the amount obtained from the personal injury settlement or verdict; and if there is no settlement or recovery, our clients do not pay us at all.

Q: How Often Should I Hear From My Personal Injury Attorney?

A: Historically, one of the most frequent complaints made against lawyers is lack of communication with their clients. At Kaine Law, we not only fight for our personal injury client’s rights, but we also keep our clients informed about the status of their cases. In fact, we strive to contact our clients proactively every 2 – 3 weeks so that our injured accident victim clients know the current status of their case and have open lines of communication with our attorneys.

Q: What Should I Ask When Hiring An Attorney?

A: We know that it can be difficult to find the “right” legal fit when hiring an attorney. We know that our team can assist you with the respect, knowledge and communication about your case that you deserve. However, it is important to be prepared when sitting down to begin any type of legal process. Below you will find some information that may help you as you evaluate your options to hire an attorney:

  1. Know Who You Are Hiring
    1. It’s always a good idea to look at your potential lawyer’s background, education and expertise.
    2. Ask how much experience the attorney has handling cases like yours?
    3. What has the lawyer’s success rate been in winning cases similar to yours?
    4. The potential lawyer needs to be just as candid with you as you are with them.
  2. Strategy
    1. Every lawyer should have a game plan—know their game plan and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
    2. What is the strategy for handling your specific case?
    3. Possible outcomes?
    4. Timeline?
    5. In legal disputes, is a settlement, mediation or arbitration an issue?
    6. Are there any potential problems that your case may encounter?
  3. Manage and Money
    1. Who will be handling your case?
    2. Will there be paralegals handling your case as well?
    3. How much does the law firm charge per hour?
      1. Is there a different hourly rate for an attorney vs. a paralegal?
    4. Is there a contingency fee?
    5. Is there any way to reduce the total cost of legal fees?

These 3 subjects are to help you or a loved one choose the right attorney. For us, we are dedicated to providing our clients with the best possible advice and assistance with their personal injury cases.
