FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Do Personal Injury Lawyers Take Any Case?
A: Contrary to popular opinion, personal injury lawyers will not take any case out of sheer greed. In fact, we do not get paid at all if we don’t win. So it’s in our best interest to only take on clients with valid claims against someone else who injured them. You can schedule a free case review to discuss your case with our knowledgeable legal team and get honest answers about whether taking legal action is right for you.
Q: How Can I Maximize My Compensation in an Insurance Claim?
A: Insurers usually aren’t watching out for the best interest of victims when it comes to compensating them after an accident. Instead, the insurance company protects its interests by offering a much lower settlement than most accident victims need to recover from their injuries. To get the most compensation possible, hire an experienced personal injury attorney. Your lawyer can advise you on maximizing your compensation and will represent you when negotiating with insurance companies and in court.
Q: Can I Recover Lost Income When I’ve Missed Work Due to My Injuries?
A: Yes! Accident victims are entitled to compensation for time lost at work because of their injuries. If the accident occurred on the job, our attorneys can help you file a worker’s compensation claim that gets approved quickly. You can also recover compensation for lost vacation, bonuses, and reduced income-earning ability in a workers comp or other personal injury claim.
Q: What Is the Most Common Injury in a Car Accident?
A: Car accident victims may face a wide range of painful injuries. Even minor injuries, like whiplash, can cause great pain and suffering and could keep you from working and enjoying your life. Neck injuries, such as whiplash, are among the most common injuries seen in car accidents. However, a wreck can also cause broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and internal organ damage, leading to expensive medical treatment and missed time at work.
Q: What Are Non-Economic Damages in a Personal Injury Case?
A: While economic damages are easy to calculate because they represent items that you would pay for and receive a receipt, non-economic damages are more difficult to define. However, these damages are equally important in a personal injury case because of the damage they cause victims. Some examples of non-economic damages are emotional distress, depression, anxiety, mental trauma, pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and disfigurement. If you think you are entitled to non-economic damages for your injuries, call Armada Law today.

Q: What Are the Duties of a Personal Injury Lawyer?
A: Your attorney will do much more than handle paperwork, although this is one critical duty that will help your case get handled without being delayed or dismissed. A lawyer can advise you on the best way to collect compensation among the many options available. They will use their experience and knowledge to negotiate with insurers and maximize your compensation. An attorney can gather critical evidence proving you were not at fault for the accident and deserve complete damages under the law. Please contact our law firm to enlist knowledgeable legal professionals to defend your rights as an accident victim.
Q: What Evidence is Most Useful in a Personal Injury Case?
A: One of the most important pieces of evidence when collecting damages for personal injuries is the police report. For this reason, and because you are legally required to by law, it is essential to contact law enforcement whenever you’re in a motor vehicle accident. Some other powerful items that can be used as evidence include eyewitness accounts, surveillance footage, photos of the scene of the crash, and testimonies of accident reconstructionists who recreate the crash scene. Finally, you may also need to provide documentation of your injuries by submitting medical records and bills from doctors, hospitals, and specialists.
