DO I NEED TO HIRE A PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER?

Railroads and insurance companies employ large legal staffs to protect their interests in defending against personal injury claims and wrongful death claims.  These legal staffs have extensive knowledge, which the average person does not, of the many laws, regulations and rules applicable to specific types and locations of accidents, and the parties involved.  By hiring Hoey & Farina, you will have your own team of experienced personal injury lawyers, paralegals, legal assistants, and investigators working to obtain a result with your best interests at heart.

WHAT IF I CAN'T AFFORD TO HIRE A LAWYER?

Hoey & Farina represents clients on a contingency fee basis.  This means we are paid only after we have obtained a settlement or verdict on your behalf. There are never any upfront costs to you.

WHAT IS MY INJURY CLAIM WORTH?

Many factors will be investigated and taken into consideration throughout the legal process when determining the monetary value of your personal injury claim.  These factors can include, but are not limited to:

  • Permanent Injury
  • Disfiguring Injury
  • Life Altering Injury (Brain Damage, Spinal Cord Injury, Amputation, Etc.)
  • Temporary Or Permanent Disability
  • Medical Bills
  • Future Medical Bills
  • Lost Wages From Work
  • Future Lost Wages From Work
  • Percentage Of Fault / Negligence Of All Responsible Persons Or Companies

WHO CAN I SUE FOR MY SERIOUS INJURY?

Accidents resulting in serious injuries or wrongful death need to be immediately investigated to determine who or what was at fault. For example, if you were hit by a truck: Who owned or subleased the truck? Who was responsible for truck maintenance? And, with regards to your vehicle: Did your airbag properly deploy? Did your car withstand impact the way the manufacture intended?  An investigation will determine all of the responsible parties who can be held liable under the law for your serious injury.

DO I HAVE TO GO TO COURT?

The thought of having to "go to court" may be intimidating.  We will attempt to settle your personal injury claim; however, we will also be prepared, if necessary, to go to trial in order to obtain the very best result for you.  Throughout the entire process, members of Hoey & Farina's experienced and compassionate staff will be there for you.

HOW LONG WILL MY CASE TAKE?
