Car Accident Frequently Asked Questions

At Shook & Stone, our attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, which means you don’t pay us anything unless we win your case. We also offer free initial consultations, so you can learn more about your legal options without any obligation.

Again, this depends on the specific facts of your case. If you’re able to reach a settlement with the other driver’s insurance company, it may take a few months. If your case goes to trial, it could take a year or more. An experienced car accident lawyer will be able to give you a better estimate of how long your case is likely to take.

Pain and suffering damages are a type of compensation that can be awarded in personal injury cases. These damages are meant to reimburse the victim for the physical and emotional pain and suffering caused by the accident.

There is no set formula for calculating pain and suffering damages. In general, the severity of your injuries and the impact the accident has had on your life will be taken into account. An experienced car accident lawyer will be able to help you assess the value of your pain and suffering damages.
