Personal Injury Lawyers: Some FAQs

“My injuries don’t seem that bad. Why would I need a personal injury attorney?”
Pain can show up hours, days, or even months later. There may be long-term effects with on-going medication, treatments, and therapies. Your attorney can help you navigate the medical system so you can get the outcome you need.

“Why wouldn’t the insurance company pay for my injuries? Isn’t that what insurance is for?”
You’re right, of course. We pay our premiums in good faith, expecting insurance companies to come through when the unexpected occurs. Unfortunately, insurance companies would rather not pay. They may blindside you with intimidation tactics or trick you into agreeing to early settlements. That’s why it’s important to contact an attorney before speaking to an insurance company––even your own. Our caring attorneys understand insurance companies and will handle the red tape from beginning to end so you can concentrate on getting your life back.

“What sort of proof do I need?”
Contacting a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible is important so no vital information relevant to your case is overlooked or lost. Your attorney will help you sort through important documentation procedures, including information about the accident and the other party, medical reports, work lost, correspondence from insurance companies, etc.

“Isn’t it expensive to hire a lawyer? I’m pretty sure I can’t afford that.” At Skaug Law, all of our work is on a contingency basis. That means we only get paid if we win a settlement or verdict for you, and you won’t be asked to pay for any legal fees in advance. You can concentrate on getting well while we go to work for you.
