Frequently Asked Questions
When should I hire a personal injury lawyer?
If you or someone you love is ever involved in an accident, hiring an Alabama personal injury lawyer could be the best decision you make. Most insurance companies will rush you into an accident settlement before you have a chance to hire a lawyer. They know that you will settle for less money if you do not have the guidance from an established Alabama accident lawyer. A DeGaris & Rogers lawyer can run a detailed case investigation gathering all the critical evidence, witnesses, photos and legal documents to build the strongest case possible for you.
What does it cost to hire an injury lawyer?
We offer a free no obligation case evaluation to everyone that contacts us. If you do decide to hire us, we will not bill you for our services unless we win your case. Our fee will be based on a percentage of the money you are awarded.
DeGaris & Rogers will cover all the upfront fees for documents, investigators, court fees and any other costs that may arise due to your injury claim. You will never pay a single cent if we do not win your case.

When can a lawyer meet with me?

Am I required to go to court?
Most of our claims get settled out of court thereby avoiding taking an injury case to trial. We can help you negotiate a fair settlement quickly. If by chance you do need to go to court we will fight aggressively for your rights.
How much can I get for my injury case?
All cases are unique and so it is difficult predicting what you can get for your case. A case value is calculated on many factors including: lost income, medical bills, pain & suffering and more. We have the experience to know exactly how to maximize your compensation award.
Is there a time limit to submit an injury claim?
The statute of limitations varies state by state. It is very important to know all the laws in your state, county and city so you do not lose your ability to protect your rights. Our Alabama personal injury attorneys know the complex state and federal laws well so you will never miss an important deadline for your injury case.
Can I hire a different Lawyer?
If you think that your attorney is not representing you well enough you can hire a new attorney. Just keep in mind that you will be required to pay them for all services completed to date. When this happens the original injury attorney will most likely work out a fee division that is fair for both attorneys.
Do you recommend getting a second opinion?
If your claim was turned down by another attorney you may still have a valid case. Always check with a qualified Alabama injury attorney that has experience in your type of accident injury.
The insurance company told me not to hire a Lawyer. Is this right?
Never forget that insurance companies make money by taking in premiums and not by paying out claims. Therefore, they will always attempt to get you to settle for far less money than your injury claim could be worth. Our Alabama personal injury attorneys can help you determine if you are getting a fair settlement from the insurance company. Don’t leave money on the table. Get what is rightfully yours!
Can the insurance company raise my premium?
For the most part, the party at fault in an accident injury will have to pay more for their insurance coverage in the future.
