Personal Injury FAQs

Do I really need a personal injury lawyer?

While you are not required to have legal representation after a car accident, medical mistake or nursing home abuse case, it is in your best interest to have a lawyer. Having an experienced advocate is crucial to safeguarding your rights and maximizing your personal injury compensation.

What is a contingency fee?

Almost all personal injury attorneys operate on a contingency fee basis, meaning you do not pay unless there is a verdict or settlement. At Ranchor Harris Law, you will only pay once we secure a verdict or settlement on your behalf.

How do I know if I should sue?

You shouldn’t bear the burden alone – we’ll handle every aspect of your personal injury claim so you can focus on yourself. Pursuing a personal injury lawsuit is your right to remedy harm caused by others’ negligence, and we will be with you every step of the way.

What can a personal injury claim provide?

A personal injury claim can secure necessary and fair compensation, covering medical expenses, rehabilitation, lost earnings, pain and suffering and even costs associated with in-home care or home modifications due to injury. We collaborate with experts to assess the full scope of expenses, ensuring any settlement offer meets your needs. With numerous jury trials under our belt, we are ready to go to trial if necessary.

Are the insurance companies really that bad?

In some ways, no. Insurance companies are comprised of a mix of individuals, some good and some less so. However, their profit often stems from denying resources to injured individuals. They are driven by profit and willing to avoid responsibility. Fortunately, our defense attorney anticipates their tactics and takes preemptive action to protect your interests.

My loved one was killed due to another person or party’s negligence. What are my options?

Losing a loved one is devastating, yet legal options exist for seeking justice and compensation through wrongful death claims. Compensation may cover funeral costs, medical bills, pain and suffering of the deceased, loss of income and more.

What are the qualifying factors for seeking legal action for a brain injury?

To seek legal action for a brain injury, key factors include proving negligence or fault by another party, demonstrating a direct link between their actions and the injury and showing the extent of damages suffered due to the brain injury. We will fight to secure the compensation necessary for medical bills, lost earnings and ongoing care to aid in your recovery.

What should I do if a loved one is experiencing nursing home abuse or neglect?

Regrettably, nursing home patients often face abuse or neglect due to various factors. Prioritize your loved one’s safety by relocating them if necessary. Document signs of abuse, neglect or distress and contact a personal injury attorney experienced in nursing home abuse cases promptly. Time is of the essence.
