We know how challenging it can be after a personal injury incident, both emotionally and financially. When you are suffering as a result of an accident, you may have mounting medical bills and costs as well as lost wages because you are unable to work, or unable to work at your full pre-accident capacity. That’s why the lawyers at Regan Zambri Long work on a contingency fee basis, which means no attorney fees are charged to you unless we recover funds on your behalf as a settlement or verdict in court.
If you or a loved one suffered injuries along 18th Street NW or Columbia Road that required medical attention at a hospital such as George Washington University Hospital or your local MedStar Urgent Care, an Adams Morgan >personal injury lawyer may be able to help you get the money needed for lost wages, physical therapy, medical care, or even home renovations to accommodate your injuries. Many injuries caused by accidents or incidents require costly long-term care. A personal injury lawyer can determine what your injuries are worth and explain how to pursue that compensation. If your loved one died as a result of an accident or incident, an Adams Morgan injury attorney at Regan Zambri Long can explain your legal options and how to proceed.
If the at-fault party is uninsured or underinsured (meaning they do not have sufficient coverage to compensate you), it can be difficult to receive the compensation you deserve. Our Adams Morgan personal injury lawyers have extensive experience negotiating with insurance companies and the at-fault party. Call us today at (202) 960-4596 to schedule your free consultation.
If your insurance company, or the at-fault party’s insurance company, is asking you for more information or documents than they need, if they are giving you a hard time, or if they have offered you a settlement amount too low to cover your lost wages, medical expenses, and other losses, you need an experienced personal injury lawyer to negotiate on your behalf. The skilled lawyers at Regan Zambri Long collectively have over 100 years of experience helping clients obtain the payments they deserve from insurance companies.
When you suffer an injury, you may not be able to work, or you may not be able to work as much as you did before your injury. This inability to work may be a permanent disability that changes your ability to work forever, or it may be temporary while you recover from your injuries. Either way, you may have the legal right to receive money from the at-fault party or their insurance company for your lost wages, future lost wages, vacation or sick days, missed promotions or raises, employee benefit contributions, and more. The experienced Adams Morgan injury attorneys at Regan Zambri Long can help you understand your rights.
When a person acts negligently or recklessly and injures you, you may have the right to compensation for your injuries from the person that harmed you. Unfortunately, liability is not always straightforward and an experienced personal injury lawyer at Regan Zambri Long can answer any questions you have and help you decide whether to pursue a personal injury claim against the at-fault person.
You must file your claim within a time period called the statute of limitations. In DC, the statute of limitations for most personal injury claims is three years from the date of the accident. If you wait more than three years to pursue your claim, you won’t be allowed to file a lawsuit in court and the at-fault party will no longer be required to compensate you. There are exceptions to this rule, so you need to discuss your accident with our personal injury lawyers as soon as possible.
Typically, your legal team will investigate the incident that caused your injury and gather as much information as possible from accident reports, you, and other relevant people, such as witnesses. Your lawyer will also conduct a financial analysis. If the at-fault party has insurance, such as in a vehicle accident, your attorney may contact the insurance company to obtain an offer of settlement. If a settlement offer is made, your attorney will review it with you to determine whether to accept, negotiate, or pursue the case in court. You have the right to decide whether to accept a settlement offer or not. If the matter is not settled, a lawsuit may be filed in court.
A lawsuit is started in court by filing a document that outlines what happened to the victim and how the at-fault party caused the injuries. This document is called the complaint; it refers to the at-fault party as the defendant and refers to you, the injured party, as the plaintiff. The defendant responds to the complaint with a document called an answer. Next, the “discovery” process begins, where both plaintiff and defendant exchange documents and information that will serve as evidence at trial. The plaintiff and defendant, as well as witnesses to the accident, will be interviewed by the lawyers. In addition, an expert witness may provide information based upon his specialized knowledge about what he believes caused the injuries.
Ultimately, both sides prepare for trial. Many personal injury cases result in a settlement agreement rather than a verdict at trial. Settlement is possible at any point before, during, or even after trial.
The answer is most likely yes, especially if your injuries are serious or your medical costs are high.
In order to receive compensation from the at-fault person, you must prove that the person caused your injuries through their negligence or recklessness. This requires evidence presented to the court. An Adams Morgan personal injury lawyer will work to collect this evidence to show who caused your injuries, negotiate on your behalf to obtain compensation, and advocate for changes in law or safety measures to ensure others do not suffer the same kinds of injuries in the future. Your personal injury lawyer will also handle any discussions with witnesses, other lawyers, and insurance companies.
Because of the three-year time frame within which you must file a personal injury claim in court, it is imperative to discuss your case with an Adams Morgan personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. The sooner you hire a local lawyer experienced in handling personal injury cases in Ward 1, the easier and more effectively your case can be resolved. The skilled lawyers at Regan Zambri Long can help.
