Frequently Asked Questions

Q – I was injured in an auto accident. Can I trust my insurance company to treat me fairly?

A – Do not trust an insurance company to protect your rights. The insurance companies have experienced defense attorneys that work hard to limit your recovery in the insurance provider’s best interest. You need an attorney who will make your rights and best interests a priority.

Q – What types of compensation may I receive in a personal injury lawsuit?

A – You may be able to recover damages for medical bills, future medical care, pain and suffering, lost wages and other forms of recovery available by law. Punitive damages may be available in a very limited number of cases.

Q – What should I do after an auto accident?

A – In addition to seeking any necessary medical care, you should contact a lawyer as soon as possible. Key evidence such as skid marks and eye-witness memories can fade over time. The sooner you contact our attorneys, the sooner we can get experts to the site to preserve evidence.

Q – How much does The Law Offices of Brian R. Whitehead charge for a personal injury case?

A – We handle all personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, so you pay no attorney’s fees unless we recover for you.
