Frequently Asked Questions
1. What kind of cases do personal injury lawyers handle?
Personal injury lawyers handle cases such as slip and fall, trip and fall, dog attack/bite, physical assault, restaurant burns (hot liquid), hot water bottle leaks, chair collapses, property not maintained, food poisoning and other situations that cause personal injury.
2. What is considered a personal injury lawsuit?
A personal injury lawsuit is when the person who suffers an injury hires a lawyer and sues the party responsible. 90% of Tim Louis' lawsuits are settled prior to trial. Tim Louis' objective, however, is to obtain trial dollars without the client having to go to trial. Any lawyer can settle a case prior to trial for less than what the client would get if the case went to trial.
3. How to hire a personal injury lawyer?
To hire an effective personal injury lawyer, you need to look at the lawyer's reputation, reviews online, summary of previous client's experience with that lawyer, case experience, years in practice, lawsuit experience and more.
Location is no longer a driver of your decision of who to hire. This is because paperwork and processes required over the life of your lawsuit eg: discoveries, court appearances, pre-trial, chambers applications, and mediations are now online. What is more important is reputation, word of mouth, online reviews, seniority, and experience.
If you are considering a specific personal injury lawyer, you should then visit their website, contact them, book a consultation, and then only if you are satisfied, enter into a written retainer agreement.
4. What are the categories of compensation you are entitled to? These categories are referred to as Heads of Damage.
- Pain and Suffering or General Damages – this is for the injury itself.
- Past Loss of Income – income loss you have suffered from the date of injury up to the date of settlement.
- Future Loss of Income – income loss you will suffer after the date of settlement.
- Special Damages – out of pocket costs. Anything you paid for as a result of the injury – medical treatments, prescriptions and more – any costs other than those related to the lawsuit.
- Future Cost of Care – if you are going to incur a care cost in the future – the defendant must pay you a lump sum for these future care costs as part of the settlement.
5. How do you prove emotional distress?
You prove emotional distress by obtaining an expert diagnosis from a doctor, counsellor, psychologist, or a psychiatrist to support emotional distress.
