I Have Some Questions

About My Personal Injury Case

Do I Have A Personal Injury Claim?

If you have been injured as a result of someone else’ s actions, you probably have a valid injury claim. However, not every injury claim requires a lawyer. I often advise injured people that they do not need a personal injury lawyer and that they can handle their injury claim without a lawyer. If you are unsure if you have a claim, feel free to contact me. I never charge anything to consult with people who are injured.

What Is My Case Worth?

There are many factors that determine the value of your personal injury case. The most important factor is the severity of your injury. Other factors include: Insurance coverage, the amount of medical bills, and the conduct of the person who caused the injury. If someone tells you that there is a personal injury claim formula to determine the value, they are misrepresenting and oversimplifying the process to you. There are simply too many factors to determine the value of your claim.

How can I pay medical bills after a car accident?

Generally, a personal injury lawyer will contact all of your medical providers and let them know what happened, and ask that they wait to be paid until you settle your case. If you have health insurance, Medicare or Medicaid, you can pay for services up front, but keep in mind that you will probably be required to pay these companies back out of your settlement.

I was in a car accident in Asheville, what should I do first?

1) Do not talk to the insurance company. They will contact you and ask for a recorded statement to try and find a way to not pay you for your injuries. 2) Contact a personal injury lawyer. 3) Take photographs of the vehicles involved in the car accident and get names of any witnesses. 4) Seek immediate medical treatment. Take an ambulance to the hospital, or report immediately to the hospital or a doctor. 5) Do exactly what your doctor says. Do not go to work if you’ve been written out of work. If you are prescribed medication, take it.

Why should I let EMS evaluate me after a car accident?

Immediately following a car accident, it is common for a client to have no pain, due to shock and adrenaline. Many decline medical treatment by paramedics at the scene, only to find that their symptoms develop hours or days later. unfortunately, the other party’s insurance company can use this lack of treatment to try to prove that you weren’t injured in the crash, or diminish the value of the claim. it’s wise to always let EMS check you out, just in case things get worse.
