FAQ

  • How Much Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?

    No two injury cases are the exact same, so we would need to know the specifics of your claim to provide a more specific evaluation. But in general, you may be able to seek financial compensation for past and future medical costs, past and future wage losses, and diminished earning capacity. Non-economic losses that you can pursue compensation for include pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of capacity for enjoyment of life.

  • Do I Need to Go to the Doctor?

    After an accident, you should always visit the doctor, no matter how minor you think your injuries might be. It may not be until the shock and adrenaline have fully faded away that you can sense serious injuries such as head trauma, and this could take days or even weeks after an accident has occurred. The earlier you go the doctor's office, the earlier you can detect and thus treat such injuries. Medical records are also crucial for pursuing compensation for the accident.

  • When Do I Need an Injury Attorney?

    If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, then a lawyer can be your best bet of gaining a full financial recovery. An injury lawyer has the experience and resources to fully investigate your case and build a strong claim. Furthermore, when you are up against an insurance company, its highly trained team of adjusters and lawyers will be fighting your claim to protect their bottom line. If you join forces with an experienced injury attorney, he or she can level the playing field for you.

  • How Can I Afford a Personal Injury Lawyer?

    When you work with a contingency fee lawyer, such as at Mesa Law Firm, you will have no upfront or out-of-pocket costs. We only get paid if you do, as our payment comes from a percentage of the compensation we win for you. Call us today to learn more.
