Personal Injury Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

When you are injured in a serious accident, you probably have many questions. At Shelander Law Offices in Beaumont, we want to help you in every way we can. While it's best to schedule a free consultation to discuss your individual questions, below are some of our answers to the questions we hear most often.

How much is my case worth?

Every case is different, and there are many factors to consider when determining how much compensation you may be eligible to receive. Regardless of your accident, our attorneys will pursue full compensation for your medical treatment, lost wages, property damage, lost earning potential, pain and suffering and more.

What should I do after an auto accident?

Always seek medical attention immediately following an accident. Also get contact information for any witnesses, as well as the license plate and insurance information from the other drivers involved. Read more of our tips, and reach out to one of our attorneys for unique counsel for your specific accident.

How is a car accident different from a truck accident?

Truck accidents have the potential to cause more serious injuries, and may involve more formidable parties on the other side. But more importantly, truck drivers and trucking companies have much stricter rules to follow on the road. When their actions cause a serious accident, you need a much more experienced attorney to uncover the violations to these regulations in order to prove fault.

Can I just accept the insurance company's offer?

You should always consult in a personal injury lawyer before accepting an offer from the insurance company. More often than not, they will attempt to trick you into accepting an offer that is well below what you deserve for your injuries.

What if I can't afford a lawyer?

Personal injury lawyers don't cost anything upfront. We offer free initial consultations, and you don't pay us anything unless and until we secure you compensation. And even then, you only pay us a percentage of what we recover. This means there is no risk involved to get started.
