Accident Law FAQs

Do I have to pay to talk to you about my case?

No, initial consultations are free.

What is a contingent fee agreement?

Many people need legal representation but cannot afford to pay a lawyer’s hourly rate. An alternative to paying by the hour is the contingent fee. Most workers’ comp and personal injury cases are handled on a “contingent fee” basis. The lawyer’s fee is a percentage of (or “contingent” upon) the recovery you actually get on your claim.

The contingent fee percentages we use vary depending upon the nature of the case and other factors. Expenses for your claim are the responsibility of the client. We will prepare a written fee agreement for you and the firm to sign.

How long do I have to file my lawsuit?

The time limit to file a lawsuit varies, depending on the nature of your case. In general, a property damage claim must be filed within five years from the date of the accident.

For personal injury, the time is much shorter, just two years from the date of the incident. This can vary, depending on the nature of your case.

Why should I hire a lawyer for my car accident case?

We think advice from a lawyer is essential, but you are not required to have a lawyer. However, you may not recognize all the potential claims you have or the applicable time limits. You may not know the procedural requirements you need to follow to pursue your claims.

We know what you will need for evidence to prove legal responsibility as well as to prove your damages. We can help you evaluate your case and recognize the strengths and weaknesses in it. Rush & Nicholson can help you assemble, evaluate and present that evidence for settlement or at trial.

If your claim needs to be filed, a lawyer can prepare the papers in the proper form, file them in the correct places, and see that the technical requirements of legal proceedings are followed.

Rush & Nicholson will try to see things from your perspective and give you advice and information free of any bias or conflict of interest. If a trial or hearing is needed, your lawyer can present your evidence and protect your right to a fair decision.

This is just a summary. Much more can be involved. If you have questions about what can be done for your case in particular, please contact us.

How much is my auto accident case worth?

Many factors decide the value of a claim. The more obvious and permanent the damage/injury, any money spent because of the accident, the more time off work, the other party’s legal responsibility, the more a judge or jury is likely to award in compensation.

Other factors, such as the personality and appeal of the parties and their witnesses, the ease or difficulty of obtaining necessary evidence, and your willingness and the ability of your lawyer to take your case all the way to trial can affect its value. The experienced lawyers at Rush & Nicholson take all these factors into consideration when evaluating a case.
