FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How will I pay for my lawyer?
All our personal injury cases are handled on a contingency fee basis. What this means is
that if no recovery is made, you don’t pay any attorney’s fees.
How long will my case take?
The Law Offices of Gilbert Maturino will attempt to move every case forward as quickly
as possible without compromising the maximum possible recovery. The time involved will
depend on the nature of the case and your injuries.
Some cases can be settled without filing a lawsuit and often are settled within a few
months. Once suit is filed, the time to be reached for trial can take much longer, and is
dependent in part on the court’s schedule. A complex case can take several years,
particularly if it goes to trial.
If you have suffered an injury, you may feel overwhelmed by worry, confusion, or helplessness. Medical bills can mount in a hurry and lost
income can cause stress for you and your family aside from your physical injuries.
Unfortunately, insurance companies are poised to take advantage of that confusion and stress. Insurance companies make more money if they
pay you less money for your injuries than your case is really worth. Many cases involve complex legal issues and knowledge of state and
federal regulations in order to maximize the compensation you are entitled to under the law. An experienced personal injury lawyer is in the
best position to pursue all avenues of recovery on your behalf.
If you are in need of a car accident lawyer, a medical malpractice attorney, or lawyers specializing in worker's compensation, slip and falls,
SUV rollovers, or motorcycle and trucking crashes, we would be honored to represent you or to discuss your situation and answer any
questions you may have.
What kind of compensation can I expect for my injuries?
If you are injured because of someone else’s fault or negligence, you have a right to bring a claim for your pain and suffering, medical
expenses, and lost wages.
■ Pain and Suffering: Pain and suffering are real and measurable. The law and most insurance companies grade pain as severe,
moderate, slight or minimal, as well as periodic or chronic. Expected future pain can greatly increase a claim for damages. Suffering can
include depression, changes in lifestyle, anxiety, or even relationship troubles after an injury. No dollar amount can erase pain and
suffering, but you are entitled to and deserve compensation.
■ Expenses: You should receive compensation for all reasonable expenses you have paid as a result of the accident, as well as future
expenses. This includes medical bills, transportation, help in taking care of your family members, and other household help.
■ Lost Wages: You should receive compensation for any loss of wages you suffer as a result of your accident, as well as any future
income loss. Additionally, you should be compensated for a loss of earning capacity, such as a permanent disability that restricts your
competitiveness in the job market.
