Three Questions For a Personal Injury Lawyer

Tuesday, May. 2nd 2023

A personal injury lawyer is something most people won’t need more than once in their life. Unfortunately, this makes your knowledge of the personal injury court system relatively sparse, often making it difficult to know what questions you should ask to familiarize yourself with the process. That’s why Northland Injury Law wants to help by advising you on what questions you need to answer before beginning your case.

1. How is the Law Firm Paid?

Easily the most crucial question is how payment for your personal injury lawyer services will work. At Northland Injury Law in Kansas City, our team works on a contingency fee basis. Therefore, you pay no legal fees upfront, and instead, we collect fees if and when your compensation is secured.

2. How Long Can I Wait to File Suit?

The time limitations of your case (otherwise called the “statute of limitations”) greatly
depend upon two essential things: the type of case you have and the state in
which you’re filing your case. Typically, you have one year to file for personal injuries and two years for property damage in Kansas. Alternatively, in Missouri, you usually have three years to file for personal injury and property damage. Our best advice is to contact a personal injury lawyer at Northland Injury Law early on after an accident and after receiving medical care.

3. Will I Have to Go to Trial?

The personal injury lawyers at Northland Injury Law in Kansas City are all trial lawyers. This means they prepare for each case as if it were going to trial. Ultimately, the decision to go to trial is up to you. Whatever choice you make about going to trial, the team at Northland Injury Law will offer their advice and expertise to help you receive compensation.

Northland Injury Law is proud of the relationships they’ve built with the clients they have served in the Northland and surrounding areas.  Their many great results for seriously injured people have helped their clients recover the significant economic losses that attend such serious injuries.

When it comes to a lawsuit after an accident or injury, representation matters! Most people do not realize that insurance companies have teams of lawyers, investigators, photographers and defense experts who immediately go to work following a serious accident involving their insureds.  They hire these people to minimize their exposure throughout the claims process and to reduce the amount received by the victim. Northland Injury Law aims to level the playing field for their clients.

This is an excellent law firm. They helped me out after an accident and did an awesome job. I would recommend this law firm to anyone who needs a good lawyer.” – Toni B.
