Frequently Asked Questions


Q. Can I make a claim?
A. If you are hurt in an accident, you may have the right to make a claim against the person responsible for causing or contributing to your injury. Claims for damages and financial compensation can be made for injuries suffered in many situations and are often covered by insurance. These include motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls and medical negligence.

Q. How soon after an accident or loss should I consult a personal injury lawyer?
A. In many cases, there are strict time limits in which claims must be issued. You should contact a lawyer immediately after a loss or an accident to ensure these time limits are not missed. Linett & Timmis offer a free consultation to determine whether you have a claim worth pursuing.

Q. How much will I pay my lawyer for fees?
A. Linett & Timmis’ fees are based on a percentage of the overall recovery. You will pay no fees until the case is settled. At your free initial consultation, you will be fully informed by the lawyers about legal fees.

Q. How long do I have to sue?
A. This depends on when your accident occurred. Contact Linett & Timmis immediately to find out how long you have to sue. The call is free and they will respond within 24 hours.

Q. How long will it take to settle my case?
A. This depends on the complexity of your case and the severity of your injuries. For most motor vehicle and slip and fall accidents, it can take between one to three years to achieve a fair resolution.

Q. Does hiring a lawyer mean my case will automatically go to trial?
A. Not necessarily. Usually, a lawyer will settle virtually all of his or her cases. In personal injury law, approximately 95 percent of cases are settled without going to trial.
