Auto Accident Lawyer FAQs

The experienced personal injury lawyers at Zukerberg & Halperin frequently field questions from people in Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia who have been involved in car accidents. To help you understand the basics of car accident claims, we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions that we receive about auto accident injury claims.

Our clients trust us… one of the ways we’ve earned the trust of so many clients is by being completely open, honest, and forthcoming.

It is our goal to provide clear insights to common questions. However, we must stress that no two car accident cases are the same. Kindly keep in mind that because every case is different, our expert attorneys (nor anyone) can give exact answers to these questions. Accordingly…

  1. The information below should be considered as general tips and insight, not specific answers or advice.
  2. If you’ve suffered an injury from a car accident, it truly is worth calling and speaking to an attorney. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have and, if deemed necessary, provide advice and counsel for moving forward.

Some of the factors that are important in determining whether you have a winnable car accident injury case include the following:

  • Suffering serious injuries
  • Income losses and the reduction of your ability to earn money in the future
  • Disability
  • A reduced likelihood of your ability to fully recover
  • Severe nature and extent of your injuries
  • The other driver was at fault
  • A dispute over fault exists

Many people call Zukerberg & Halperin to ask how much their car accident injury claims might be worth. The value of car accident claims varies and depends on many different factors, meaning that it is not possible to give an exact value of a car accident claim during a phone call.

You’ve been in a serious auto accident but it wasn’t your fault. Now your medical bills are starting to pile up – who should have to pay them?

While your claim is pending, your health insurance company will pay your medical bills minus your deductibles.

After your case, however, there are a few factors that go into who will pay (and how much).

It is a possibility, although your accident attorney will be able to provide insight as to whether or not you should and also help prepare you for any questions you will face. Often, whether you will need to testify during your car accident lawsuit will depend on whether you have to go to trial and whether depositions are conducted during the discovery phase.

Pushback from insurance companies, needing to identify all liable parties, dealing with different doctors and needing to be patient are all a part of what you might expect throughout a car accident case.

How long it might take for a car accident case to settle or to go to trial will depend on multiple factors. In cases in which the liability of the defendants is clear, the insurance company might be more willing to negotiate a settlement. Many cases are resolved through settlement negotiations without a formal lawsuit ever being filed.

Wondering how long until you get paid? The length of time that it will take for you to receive your money after your car accident lawsuit will depend on a couple of things.
