Frequently Asked Questions

What is a personal injury case?

A personal injury case is a civil case. It may sound obvious, but legal jargon can be confusing. A case is categorized as a personal injury case when a person has been hurt or injured due to another’s negligence.

Personal injury cases run a good range including automobile accidents, truck accidents, medical malpractice, workplace accidents, construction accidents, pedestrian accidents, motorcycle accidents, wrongful death, and accidents that cause catastrophic injuries resulting in lost wages, significant medical expenses, and life-altering impacts. For this reason, you need a law firm with the depth of knowledge and experience to get you the results you deserve.

What is a civil case?

A civil case is brought by one party (the plaintiff) against another party (the defendant) with a claim that the defendant failed to carry out a legal duty owed to the plaintiff and that the defendant’s breach of duty caused financial or personal injury to the plaintiff.

Usually, the purpose of bringing a civil case in this manner, especially a personal injury case, is to obtain a court order forcing the defendant to pay for damages suffered by the plaintiff such as serious injuries and related medical expenses, lost wages, and physical and emotional trauma due to someone else’s negligence.

How do I pay for a lawyer in a personal injury case?

At a personal injury law firm like Erney Law, we offer a Free Consultation. You can visit our office in Columbus, Ohio to discuss your legal situation and share details related to your personal injury with no strings attached. Then, we will determine if we are the right personal injury lawyers for your case.

From there, we get to work!

We don’t charge any legal fees unless we make a recovery for you in your personal injury case.

How long will it take to receive my check after we win a case?

The turnaround time to recover compensation on personal injury claims is dependent upon the situation. Typically, the insurance company has 30 days to send the check.

At Erney Law, we prioritize the attorney client relationship and do everything possible to speed things up. We stay in close contact with you throughout the entire process and explain every step of the journey.

Will my personal injury case go to trial?

We are successful at settling almost all of our personal injury cases without going to trial. However, we will go to trial if we have to.

If my personal injury case goes to trial, will I have to go to trial?

Yes. As your personal injury attorneys, we will represent you and speak on your behalf in all legal matters. But your presence at the trial is necessary and important to settling your negligence claim.

What is the difference between a civil case and a criminal case?

In general, a personal injury civil case is brought against a specific individual or an organization. The question at hand is not whether state or federal laws have been broken, but rather if there was negligence on the part of the individual or organization that caused the injury.

In civil cases, the evidentiary burden is not as stringent as that of a criminal case, requiring less evidence for a judgment and settlement in favor of the injured victims.

In personal injury cases, a monetary punishment is decided by a judge and typically covers compensation for injuries due to vehicle accidents, animal attacks, dog bites, workplace mishaps, motorcycle accidents, and premises liability cases among others.

Whereas a criminal case is brought by the state or federal government when criminal statutes have been broken. These refer to crimes that can greatly affect society and usually come with more severe punishment.

In criminal cases, a jury is brought in to hear the case and the defendant has the right to legal counsel. A preponderance of compelling or “hard” evidence is required for conviction, and judgment in such cases can include both monetary penalties as well as imprisonment.
