What To Expect From Your Personal Injury Case in Paulding County

When you first contact Murphy Law Firm in Hiram about your accident, we will ask some questions about your injury case. This includes:

  • Date of the collision?
  • What are your injuries?
  • What actions have you taken to settle your case?

Then you will talk with our Paulding County Personal Injury Lawyer, who will give you a free consultation in the Hiram and Dallas area to evaluate your claim. You may have your meeting over the phone or in-person. The lawyer will examine your case and help guide your next steps. In some circumstances, we may not take your case, depending on the particulars of your accident. This does not mean that you don’t have a claim, just that your situation does not fit the types of cases in which we specialize. If we cannot take your case, we will be glad to talk with you and offer a referral to a different attorney, if possible.

If our lawyer deems your case a suitable fit for our firm, we will propose a “retainer agreement”: A contract which says we will be legally representing you throughout your injury claim. This contract will lawfully permit us to speak to appropriate parties concerning your accident claim. After signing this agreement, you cannot settle your case or allow a settlement without contacting us first. The retainer will also have a fee agreement, which will be due upon your lawsuit settling. We do not require any upfront fees or attorney expenses, as we operate on a contingent fee basis. We only get paid if we win your case.

The most beneficial thing you can do to improve your injury case is to receive regular medical treatments. Murphy Law Firm in Paulding County can aid you in obtaining a doctor and arranging appointments nearby Hiram and Dallas to treat your injuries.

We work with Paulding County medical providers such as chiropractors, neurologists, and MRI specialists. A partnership with these Hiram and Dallas medical experts lets us guarantee the price of your medical procedures in place of upfront expenses. This is an example of the various ways we can help our clients in Paulding County focus on healing rather than fretting about medical invoices and other charges after an injury.

While managing your case, we will always be monitoring your medical treatment records. We may contact you if we notice you are not following up with your treatment plan or missing appointments, as this could damage your claim. It is necessary to be honest concerning your physical and emotional symptoms. Your medical records are used to make a legal demand for reimbursement from the insurance company or other liable party. In some instances, your doctor may be asked by the insurance company to testify in court about your injuries.

Our team will be investigating and collecting evidence to strengthen your case while you are receiving treatment for your injuries in Paulding County. We will set up an insurance claim for you if you have not previously done so. We will notify the insurance company that we are representing you in your lawsuit and let them know to speak directly with our firm. To defend the outcome of your case, you should always tell us if the insurance company or other party reaches out to you about your claim.

We will begin collecting supporting evidence, including:

  • Police report/ incident report
  • Medical records
  • Any expenses you have incurred
  • Eye witness accounts
  • Any video surveillance

Throughout this process, we may communicate with you regularly to establish the details of your lawsuit. Our team will obtain every potential piece of information we can to defend your case, so we will need your full cooperation. If you have any questions through the investigation process, let us know, and we will go over the status of your case and provide clarifications for you. We will be happy to meet you at our convenient office location in the Hiram and Dallas area.

Once your medical treatment in the Hiram and Dallas area is finished, or when we have collected sufficient evidence, we will write a demand to the insurance company. The insurance company will most likely reject our first demand. They will either come back with a proposal or request further evidence. Our Paulding County attorney will contact you to consider any offers that are made by the insurance company. It is up to you to decide whether you take the settlement, although your attorney will provide guidance. We will continue to negotiate with the insurance company until our attorney reaches a top offer for your case.

Generally, the insurance company will try to resolve a case out of court. The court costs will fall on the defendant party if they are found accountable for your injuries by a court of law. If your case does go into litigation, we will file an official lawsuit on your behalf.

The first step of litigation is called “Discovery.” One of our legal team members will support you throughout this process, focusing on ensuring your answers to the discovery are accurate and in your best interest.

After discovery, if an agreement has not been reached, the case will go to trial. All evidence, witnesses, and arguments will be presented to a judge or jury during the hearing. The court determines who is liable and what the granted compensation should be.

Trials can be lengthy and considerably expensive. It is our goal to make sure you walk away with the highest settlement possible. In some circumstances, the expense of proceeding to trial will not be the best result. If this is the case, we will advise that you settle out of court.

Once we have reached a fair agreement or the trial has concluded, the case does not immediately end. Particular legal affairs must be closed out before you can cash a check.

Throughout the claim process, our firm collected all the medical bills you acquired due to your accident. We gather these statements into an expense sheet that will be recorded for you in your settlement statement. It is our responsibility to make sure all of your medical expenses get settled before your case is finished.

In the settlement contract, the insurance company will often require that you give up any future claim for payment on the same accident and injury. If you have any questions concerning your case, you should ask your Paulding County lawyer before signing the contract. After confirming the agreement from the insurance company, you will receive a settlement check. Usually, you will be able to pick up your check at our Hiram and Dallas area office, or where ever is convenient for you.

Top notch firm who helped us navigate our first and very stressful and frightening personal injury suit resulting from... a car wreck. Once everything got into their hands, the stress on my end totally went away. They handle everything, and they keep you informed. They are powerhouse workers, kind, patient, and compassionate with clients (I had lots of questions and often needed clarification, which was always given thoroughly and understandingly.) Lisa was the greatest advocate I could ever ask for. I felt like she was on my side and aggressively but respectfully fought for what we thought was right while at the same time being realistic with expectations and advising me well. I will say, though, the experience you get is probably dependent on how available you make yourself to answer phone calls, etc., so it maybe would not have been as efficient if I were not able to pick up every time she called. But that is on the client and not them. And it was not excessive by any means. Even with COVID they were timely. They are working to help you, so the least you can do is help them help you. All staff are professional, organized, communicative, timely, and make you feel like you are the only one they are working with. Highly recommend!read more
