How do I know if I have a personal injury case?
A Personal injury case is based on one thing in a Woodstock auto accident. Are you injured? If the answer is yes, then you have a personal injury case. Now the issue comes in with how much your case is worth. Worth of a personal injury case is different to a lawyer than the car wreck victims. The victims are the ones who are hurt, the personal injury lawyer is not. Car wreck victims are the ones going through all the pain, missing work, seeing doctors, etc. It takes a good lawyer to remain detached emotionally from their clients. A Woodstock accident attorney would not be doing a good job if they were emotionally attached to your case. This sometimes gives Accident attorneys a bad view. It would seem to victims that the personal injury lawyer does not care, but that would a wrong assumption.
My car does not have much damage, do I still have a personal injury case?
Woodstock personal injury lawyers and insurance adjusters may look at your property damage to determine what type of injury you should have. Injuries can happen in minor collisions. A good car wreck lawyer knows this, and can prove it. Because you have slight damage does not mean you have a slight injury. The most common minor property damage accident is getting hit in the rear. Cars are built to a certain degree of protection. Because of this, when you get hit in the rear, your car may have slight damage, but the car that hit you may have heavy damage. These are the most common accidents and the most common injury is whiplash.

What makes our personal injury law firm different
We take great pride in what we do. We are not a large personal injury law office, nor do we want to be. When you call a large law firm on TV you do not get personalized service. You get a stamped procedure and are treated like a number. A lot of large firms may just want to settle for whatever they can get and move on to the next case. This type of procedure is not what we do and it is not justice for you. You need the best possible representation you can get and you need someone who is not afraid to go to court if that’s what needs to be done.
Are you finding it hard to get in touch with your personal injury lawyer?
You won’t have that issue with our law firm. Communication is critical in a personal injury case. You need to know what’s going on. Some large law firms are so busy they won’t call you back or the only time you get to speak with an attorney is when they have a settlement offer. Do you ever get to speak with an attorney before you hire them? Call us today , we would be glad to speak with you about your case and see what we can do to help you.
