What qualifies as a personal injury?
So you’ve been hurt in an auto accident due to someone else’s negligence…what next? Should you talk with the insurance company? Should you accept what they’ve offered? Navigating through the claims process can be scary. But here’s what you can expect after an auto accident if you were not at fault.
First, know that the other driver’s insurance company is not in the business of giving you a fair offer. They may attempt to give you an offer for your injuries, DO NOT accept this offer, as you may be signing away some of your critical rights. Should your injuries turn out to be serious or permanent, settling your case too soon can leave you without recourse and leave you stuck with bills. That is why your first course of action should be to Contact TROHPY LAW FIRM to discuss your options. Once you’ve contacted our firm, we ask that you trust the process.
If you are injured, we recommend you get treatment right away. If you are unsure of where to go for treatment or how to begin the process, we will help you find the right doctor based on your symptoms. The most important thing and our top priority to do after your accident is to get you healed.
During treatment it is important that you keep your appointments and communicate with your doctor and us about your symptoms. We will make sure that they are well documented. Depending on the severity of your injuries, your treatment can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. More serious injuries may require surgery. In either case, you should always consult with your doctor about the nature of your injuries and the course of treatment.
Your doctor will either release you from care once you have reached what is commonly called “Maximum Medical Improvement” (MMI) or recommend a permanent solution to the pain you may suffer with for the rest of your life. At this point, we will gather your medical records and bills to submit a Demand package to the at fault party or their insurance company (most often the insurance company).
The Demand lays out your injuries and what the cost of your treatment has been. The at fault party is responsible for all past medical bills associated with your treatment. Depending on the type of injury you have, there may be need for future medical care as well. This will be included in the Demand. It is important that you provide us with any bills you have associated with your treatment. If you have any pictures of your injury or the property damage caused, it is important
to provide these to our firm as they will be included in the Demand.
Once the at fault party or their insurance company receives the demand, they will have 30 to 60 days to evaluate and provide an offer to settle your claim. This is where having a powerful firm like Trophy Law will make the difference. We will not allow the insurance company to undervalue your claim. You are entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering related to your injuries caused by the accident. We ensure any settlement includes compensation over and above the cost of your medical treatment.
While most cases end with settlement, sometimes the best offer from the insurance company is not good enough. When this happens, it may be necessary to file a lawsuit and take your case to trial for the best chance at the maximum recovery. We are dedicated to winning you the best results even if it means going to trial.
