The Top 3 Questions Personal Injury Lawyers are Asked
Miley Legal Group
What is my case worth?
As the most common question asked, the answer to this one is tricky. In most cases, we will not know the value of your case when you first sign up. In most instances the value of any case will be made up of a number of factors. This includes the nature of your injuries, the extent and duration of your injuries and the amount of damages in the accident. We will also factor in medical bills, lost wages and other out of pocket expenses caused by the accident.
How long will it take to get my money?
This is another tricky question. To be honest, we have seen accident cases get settled in a few months, and we have seen some take years and years. It depends on the amount of medical care you receive, the time it takes to gather all the information necessary and how forth coming the defendant and their insurance company is. As we progress in the case, we can give you a better idea of how long it will take to either settle or go to court.
Who will pay my bills?
Your medical bills can be paid through a variety of processes. In the beginning, you should always utilize any and all health insurance you have to pay your medical providers. The details of reimbursement and subrogation will be worked out towards the end of your case and you do not want medical debt to make it onto your credit report. You may also have Medical Payments insurance available to your through the at-fault driver’s insurance or through your own. This will assist in paying medical bills, usually up to a certain amount. If neither is available, our office will contact your medical providers and advise them of the accident claim; however some providers will still require you to at least set up a payment plan to show good faith. In each of these circumstances, we will provide you with the guidance you need to make the best decisions for you and your family.
