Frequently Asked Questions
I’m not sure whether I need or want Wise & Associates’ services. Will I have to pay just for meeting with you to see if Wise & Associates is right for me?
You will not have to pay. We offer free consultation.
I suffered an injury a while ago. Can I still sue?
The short answer is that you have two years from the incident to sue, but depending on the circumstances the window may be larger or smaller. The sooner you call after you suffer an injury the better.
I have suffered relatively minor injuries from a car accident. What are my options?
If you have suffered very minor injuries from a car accident, you may not be able to recover anything. Car insurance companies benefit from a $30,000 deductible, which means that you are usually on the hook for the first $30,000 of whatever damages you have suffered. However, don’t just assume your damages are too minor. Don’t hesitate to give us a call if it is possible that your damages from a car accident injury significantly exceed $30,000.
What kind of damages can I expect to recover for?
We understand that personal injury can lead to a lot of emotional stress and upset, and we strive to make our service sensitive to these factors. Unfortunately, however, you will probably receive little to no money for your stress in whatever award you get. Your injury must tangibly interfere with your ability to work or lead a normal way of life before you can get compensation. Our job is to make the best case for arguing that your injury has interfered with your life in this way.
The insurance company has offered me money in exchange for agreeing not to sue for damages from my personal injury. Is this a good idea?
Signing this agreement is almost certainly against your interest. The insurance company is made up of opportunistic business people trying to get away with paying you as little as possible. Get legal advice before signing away your rights. Remember, if you call us there is always a free consultation.
I suffered an injury that I think a friend or family member was responsible for. Can I both recover damages and maintain this relationship?
You can alleviate your suffering without harming this important relationship. Remember, when you ‘sue’ this person, you are really suing his or her insurance company. Getting the money you deserve from your friend or family member’s insurance company need not create any hard feelings between you.
How much will Wise & Associates charge for providing me legal services?
Wise & Associates is flexible and you can pay based either on an hourly fee or on a contingency fee basis. Contingency fee means that you pay 25%-35% of your award to Wise & Associates. This option is more popular than the hourly fee option because with contingency, you need not worry about the ongoing costs as we build up your case; and if you get nothing, we get nothing.
