Understanding the Basics of Personal Injury Cases
Accidents happen in a split second, and the number of things you are responsible for afterwards may seem daunting. Many people have questions about what their insurance will cover, how to collect workers' compensation benefits, how quickly they need to file a claim and how to choose an attorney.
The Law Office of Marc June has nearly 30 years of experience helping clients throughout Alaska understand the lawsuit chronology of a personal injury case. The firm represents clients who were injured in aviation, maritime, motor vehicle and other accidents. The firm works hard to make sure clients have the information they need to make informed decisions, including questions about:
- Hiring an attorney: When you are choosing a lawyer, it is important to find someone who has experience handling cases similar to yours. Because legal matters can take several months to resolve, it is important to find someone with whom you are comfortable talking.
- Insurance issues: After an accident, it is important to work with your lawyer to determine the best way to present information to your insurance company. Your insurance company is not looking out for your best interests, so it is important to present your information in the best light possible.
- Filing a claim: Many people wonder how much time they have after an accident to file a claim. Although the statue of limitations varies depending on the specifics of the case, you typically have about two years from the date of the accident in which you can file a claim.
