Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is a personal injury case?
A personal injury case arises when someone is injured due to the careless or intentional act of another person. Common scenarios include car accidents, where one driver’s negligence causes harm to another. In such cases, the injured party seeks compensation for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life.
What types of personal injury cases do you handle?

The Folger Law Firm represents clients in various personal injury cases, including motor vehicle accidents, semi-truck accidents, pedestrian accidents, motorcycle accidents, UTV accidents, slip and falls, and cases involving intentional conduct.

How do I know if I have a valid personal injury case?
Determining the validity of a personal injury case depends on proving that someone else’s negligence or intentional actions caused your injuries, resulting in damages like medical expenses and lost income. Consult with our personal injury attorney for a thorough assessment.
What should I do immediately after a personal injury accident?
After an accident, take photos, call 911, exchange information, preserve evidence, and seek medical attention. Avoid admitting fault or discussing the accident with the other driver’s insurance. Consult with our personal injury attorney to assess your case and plan for fair compensation.
How long does it take to resolve a personal injury case?
The resolution time varies, depending on factors such as recovery duration and potential lawsuits. Major variables include the time it takes for the injured person to heal and, if needed, the filing of a lawsuit.
What is a contingency fee, and how does it work?
Personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee, meaning they only get paid if the victim wins their case. The fee is usually a percentage of the awarded compensation (typically 33%).
Do I need to go to court for my personal injury case?
Most cases settle before going to court. In some instances, when a settlement is not reached, a lawsuit may be necessary, and a jury decides the case.
What should I expect during the initial consultation with your firm?
During the consultation, you’ll discuss your case details, provide relevant documents, and receive an evaluation. Legal strategies and a plan will be discussed.
Can I still file a personal injury claim if I was partially at fault for the accident?
Yes, you can often file a claim even if partially at fault. Comparative negligence rules apply, and recovery may be reduced based on your percentage of fault.
