Below, you will find general information on common personal injury questions. Reach out to our attorneys for a free consultation to discuss your specific questions and concerns.
Could I still have a personal injury claim if I don’t feel seriously hurt?
Yes. Right after an accident, you’ll likely have a rush of adrenaline that could last up to several days. The adrenaline could cover up symptoms and pain caused by extensive injuries that aren’t immediately obvious. For that reason, you should get medical attention as soon as possible after an accident, even if you feel fine. Establishing a medical record now can pay dividends later.
That’s also why it’s so important NOT to take the insurance company’s first offer for damages right after your accident. You might be more injured than you realize, and if you accept that first offer, you could end up leaving significant money on the table.
How do I know if I have a personal injury case?
In some cases, wrongdoing is obvious. Perhaps a vehicle ran a red light and T-boned you, for example. But with many accidents, it’s not always clear who was at fault or whether negligence was involved – at least, not at first. An investigation may be necessary to uncover critical details that shed light on liability.
An experienced attorney can evaluate whether you have a personal injury claim. Our lawyers know how to conduct thorough investigations and dig deep to find out what went wrong and who was at fault.
Who is liable after a trucking accident?
Truck accidents can be exceedingly complex. So many different people are involved in a single trip for a single truck. Beyond just the driver, there is also the dispatcher, the trucking company, the mechanic, the parts manufacturer, the shipper and numerous other potential parties – any one of whom may have been at fault in contributing to your accident. A good lawyer knows how to untangle the complex web of liability in truck accident cases.
How do I pay my medical bills before I get compensation for an accident?
If you have personal injury protection (PIP) coverage through your auto insurance, you can use that to cover your medical bills after an auto accident. If you don’t have PIP, your health insurance may cover those expenses. As a last result, you may have to incur medical bills out of pocket. The important thing is to get the treatment you need when you need it. An attorney can sort out the liability later. If another party was at fault for your accident or injuries, you can pursue financial recovery for all of the accident-related expenses you’ve incurred.
