I was injured in an auto accident – what do I do?
First, make sure you receive medical care for your serious injuries. Next, call our firm. Our lawyers have built a strong record of success negotiating settlements, as well as winning at trial. When your future is in the balance, you need a lawyer with a proven track record. An auto accident resulting in injury or death can involve many insurance companies. We will look at your health and auto insurance policies, as well as the policies held by the responsible party, and work to ensure they provide you with the compensation you deserve.
How do I deal with my insurance company or the other person’s insurer?
For your own automobile liability insurer, you have a contractual obligation to cooperate, but not necessarily immediately. In addition, you do not have any such obligation to the other person’s insurance company. Protect your right to compensation; do not speak with any insurance company or complete paperwork without speaking with a lawyer.
What do I do with my bills if I cannot work?
Depending on your own insurance coverage and that of the person who caused your injury, medical bills may be submitted to your own healthcare insurer, your automobile insurer (under the medical payments provision of your policy), or a combination of insurers. If you were hurt on the job, you may be eligible for worker’s compensation benefits. The coordination of rights and benefits where worker’s compensation is involved is a matter that requires experienced personal injury practitioners.
How do I receive medical compensation?
Every insurer has a different procedure and there are vast differences between companies and policies. In addition, many health insurers will claim a right of reimbursement for medical bills paid on behalf of an injured person. The respective rights of these insurers and the injured person is a complicated web of rules and regulations. It is best to work with a lawyer experienced in dealing with the paperwork and negotiations with insurance companies. Our lawyers work with a large network of experts in fields ranging from health to engineering to vocational issues to ensure that we gather the facts necessary to successfully move forward with your case.
