Wilcox Law FAQs
What is the first step in seeking legal counsel?
What Is my case worth?
It is impossible to make generalizations about the value of any case without knowing the details of the harm caused and the manner it was caused. One of the most important jobs that your attorney will conduct is leaving no stone unturned when it comes to detailing all possible losses that will translate into a legal recovery. The law allows recovery for a wide range of situations, many of which may not be readily apparent to the injured party. This includes past medical bills, future medical and rehabilitation costs, therapy, lost past wages, lost future income, pain and suffering, and more.

Should I accept the insurance company settlement?
It cannot be reiterated enough that insurance companies are in the business of minimizing payouts to maximize company profits. No matter how nice the insurance adjuster seems or how many details they give you regarding your compensation, the adjuster’s goal is to pay you as little as possible. In fact, the adjuster is usually rewarded for resolving claims for as little as possible and as quickly as possible.
My problem occurred a fairly long time ago. Can I still make a claim?
Your claim might be barred by the “statute of limitations.” This is the time limit to start a lawsuit against the person or business liable for your injuries and losses. Statutes of limitations have exceptions, so you should consult your lawyer. There may still be time to make a claim.
Can I handle the case on my own, or do I need an attorney?
Following an accident it is understandable for individuals to want to settle the matter quickly and move on with their lives as soon as possible. As a result, some may be tempted to try to take care of all issues—including legal issues—without getting professional representation. It is crucial to understand the pitfalls of trying to go it alone.
