Mihelich & Kavanaugh, PLC knows the personal injury process can be confusing. We have answered our clients’ most common questions to help you prepare for your case. You should speak with one of our Clinton Township personal injury lawyers for more information about your available options and what to expect in the legal road ahead.
What should I do if I can’t afford an attorney?
You might worry about the expense of hiring a personal injury lawyer. That’s one of the primary reasons many accident victims choose not to seek legal representation. However, you can avoid paying upfront fees or costs when you hire Mihelich & Kavanaugh, PLC. We take cases on contingency. That means we only get paid if we secure compensation for you. If we lose, you will never have to pay us.
How long do personal injury cases take?
It depends. No two cases are alike. Some settle quickly, especially if liability is clear and the insurance carrier knows they can’t win at trial. Others are more complicated and take months or years of litigation to resolve.
We understand the importance of recovering compensation as soon as possible so you can pay your medical bills and other expenses. We can’t predict your case’s timeframe, but we will work hard to try to resolve it efficiently.
What are my options if my loved one died in an accident?
You could pursue a wrongful death case if your loved one died in an accident someone else caused. However, only the personal representative of their estate can file the lawsuit. Compensation is available to surviving family members, such as:
- Spouse and children
- Parents, siblings, and grandparents
- Spouse’s children
- Anyone given property in the deceased’s will
The money recovered in a wrongful death suit might compensate for:
- Pain and suffering your loved one endured
- Reasonable funeral, burial, medical, and hospital expenses
- Loss of the deceased’s care, companionship, and other intangible benefits
- Lost financial support your relative could have contributed if they survived
