Here is a list of frequently asked questions and commonly used legal terms:

Q: What kinds of injuries or cases does your firm work on?

A: The Tyrone Law Firm handles every kind of personal injury lawsuit, including cases which involve: all catastrophic personal injuries, car and truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, DUI and DWI driving accidents, inadequate security/ crime victims, premises liability, nursing home abuse, as well as wrongful death cases. Contact the Tyrone Law Firm today for a free consultation; our attorneys can answer any questions you have about your injury and potential claim.

Q: What is the definition of a “contingency fee?”

A: The Tyrone Law Firm does not charge any upfront fees to represent their clients. Instead, we charge a contingency fee. A contingency fee is a fee that is collected by the attorney ONLY if the claim is successful. The contingency fee is a fixed percentage of the compensation received by the injured party, and is determined when we start working on your case. If we are unable to help you recover compensation for your claim, you will not be responsible for paying a legal fee from your personal funds.

Q: What does the term “statute of limitations” mean?”

A: The “statute of limitations” is the period of time after the accident in which you may file a claim for damages. There is a fixed time limit after the event occurs. When the time limit, or “statute of limitations”, runs out you may no longer be eligible to pursue your claim or otherwise bring a legal action. Each type of accident or injury may be governed by several laws regarding the applicable statute of limitations, therefore it is best to discuss the specific aspects of you case with an attorney as soon as possible after the accident. Contact the Tyrone Law Firm today for a free consultation; our attorneys can answer any questions you have about your injury, potential claim and the statute of limitations on your case.

Q: What could my case be worth?

A: If your claim is successful, you will either receive a settlement or a jury verdict which states the amount of compensation that the victim or their loved ones are entitled to receive for an injury claim. The amount of the settlement or jury verdict can be very different from case to case. Ultimately, the recovery we are able to obtain on behalf of clients is impacted by many things, including:

  • Who the Defendant is – is it an individual, a criminal or a corporation?
  • Did the injured person have to stay home from their job due to the accident?
  • The extent of medical attention required.
  • The extent of physical and emotional pain and suffering.
  • The extensiveness of the victim’s injuries.
  • The age and health of the victim before the injury.
  • Are the injuries permanent?
  • Is the person able to return to work?
  • Is the person able to return to their “normal” way of life?

Q: How can I get my claim evaluated?

A: Contact our office to set up a free case evaluation. You can contact us by telephone or use the email link on the home page of this website.
