FAQ

Q.

What is medical malpractice?

A.

Medical malpractice is any negligent act by a medical professional that results in injury. All patients are entitled to a reasonable standard of care when they seek assistance from medical professionals. When a medical professional fails to provide services that an equally qualified medical professional would have provided and an injury is the result, that professional may be guilty of medical malpractice.

Q.

How much will it cost me to hire an attorney?

A.

Fuller & Associates, P.A. handles many claims on a contingency fee basis. This means that if you win your case, Fuller & Associates, P.A. will be compensated by a percentage of your award, and that if you do not win your case, there will be no charge to you. All cases are different, and the terms of representation in your case will be discussed prior to the commencement of work.

Q.

What is nursing home abuse?

A.

Nursing home abuse is the violation by a long term care facility of a patient's right to be provided appropriate care. Examples of abuse include, but are not limited to, failing to protect residents from falls, ulcers, infections, malnutrition, or dehydration, over or under medication, or physical or sexual abuse.

Q.

What is a statute of limitations?

A.

The law limits the amount of time that a person has to make a legal claim against a wrongdoer. The Court may bar your claim if it is filed after the expiration of the statute of limitations. You should contact an attorney as soon as possible after your injury because the statute of limitations does not provide the same amount of time for all types of cases.

Q.

What is a personal injury claim?

A.

Personal injury is an injury to one person caused by the negligence of another. This negligence can be either due to a direct action of the offending party or by that party's failure to prevent the injury in violation of their duty (if one exists). Personal injury cases include, but are not limited to, slip and fall injuries, automobile or motorcycle accidents, brain injuries, wrongful death, nursing home abuse and any other physical injury caused by the negligence of another party.

Q.

Will Fuller & Associates, P.A. represent me in my case?

A.

Each case is different. Fuller & Associates, P.A. is happy to discuss with you the particular circumstances involving your potential claim, and will provide you an answer regarding legal representation once that discussion is complete. Please call or email us to schedule a free consultation.

Q.

I have been injured, what should I do?

A.

There are three essential steps: 1) remain calm; 2) seek medical attention and 3) contact an attorney. It is very important that you speak with an attorney prior to speaking with any representative from an insurance company. Do not sign any documents until after an attorney has reviewed your potential claim. Accepting funds from an insurance company or signing a document they provide may bar you from asserting your rights in court.

Q.

What is a "class action?"

A.

In some instances, a company's misdeed will result in a large number of victims having the same potential claim and suffering similar damages. In this event, it is in the interest of both the victims and the court to combine the claims into one case rather than spend the time and money to try essentially the same case numerous times. In addition, there are instances when the financial damages to an individual claimant may be too small to justify the cost of a lawsuit, but becomes economically feasible when the economic damage to all of the victims is combined. In a class action lawsuit, one or more plaintiffs serve as the "named plaintiff(s)" and pursue the claim on behalf of themselves and other similarly situated plaintiffs injured by the same defendant.

Q.

How much is my case worth?

A.

Every case is different, and no attorney is able to give you a fair estimation until they have fully reviewed all of the facts of the case. The most important factors in determining the case's value are medical bills (past and future), lost wages (past and future) and pain and suffering.

Q.

What is a referral?

A.

To properly handle a case, it is essential that a law firm have both the proper experience and the resources to complete a thorough investigation and bring the matter to trial. It is very common for other law firms to refer a case and/or client to Fuller & Associates, P.A. to handle claims in which either they themselves do not handle the subject matter or because Fuller & Associates, P.A. has the necessary resources to pursue the case. Other times, firms will serve as co-counsel with Fuller & Associates, P.A. in the matter. Our excellent reputation and track record are also important reasons why other attorneys continue to send us large numbers of their cases and clients.
