Commonly Asked Questions

About Maritime Accidents
  • How do I know if I have a personal injury case?

    To learn if you do indeed have a personal injury case the first step is to get in touch with a personal injury lawyer . In general, you and your personal injury attorney will have to prove three things in order to recover in a personal injury case: that you suffered damages, that the defendant was negligent, and that the defendant’s negligence caused your damages. Even if you have a valid claim, though, your personal injury attorney will have to investigate whether or not you would be able to collect on your claim. If the other party does not have insurance or other assets, then it may be that you have a valid claim but will not be able to collect on it.

  • How do I choose the right personal injury lawyer?

    First, look for a law firm that has experience working with and winning the kind of case you will be pursuing. Whether you are the victim of an SUV rollover, post-collision fire or product defect you deserve an attorney who knows how to win for you. Some personal injury lawyers have never seen the inside of a courtroom. The insurance companies know this and don’t want fair settlements. At The Ammons Law Firm, our personal injury lawyers have a record of winning. Rob Ammons is board certified in personal injury law in addition to being Board Certified in Civil Law by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. He is individually rated “AV” by the Martindale Hubbell Law Directory, the directory’s highest rating. If you or a loved one has been injured due to the negligence of others, call The Ammons Law Firm today for a free consultation.

  • How much is my personal injury case worth?

    The monetary value of your personal injury claim depends on any number of issues. For instance, a case’s value is influenced by the nature and extent of your personal injuries; the amount of your medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and other financial losses; pain and suffering; and present and future disability. However, even taking those conditions into consideration there are significant differences in the amount of money a plaintiff can expect to actually collect. This is based on the amount of coverage offered by an insurance company, or the assets of the defendant. Other factors influencing collection including any partial fault on the part of the injured person, the amount of time the victim(s) choose(s) to spend with litigation versus a quick settlement. There is no way for any personal injury attorney to accurately predict the value of any personal injury case. However, an experienced personal injury lawyer should be able to consider the particular factors that weigh into your case and give you an overall picture of what to expect in general terms.

  • Why shouldn’t I just deal with the insurance company on my own?

    The primary goal of most insurance companies is to protect their bottom line- not your particular interests. The lifeblood of any insurance company is to take in as many premiums as they can while paying out as few claims as they can. Many insurance company employees are trained to minimize or deny your claim as quickly as possible. Representatives from insurance companies use a variety of tools to do this sometimes even pretending to be on your side and want to help you get your claim resolved quickly. A good personal injury lawyer will negotiate with the insurance companies as your representative and either work with-or against-them depending on what your claim needs.
