Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Claims
Do You Need to Seek Immediate Medical Care After an Accident?
- A claimant can pursue a cause of action, either informal as a claim or in litigation, even if you don’t seek medical attention right away. Most people try to see if they’re going to recover from their injuries without seeking medical attention. Insurance adjusters, defendants, and especially juries understand that reasonable people don’t always seek medical attention right away.
Will My Injury Case Go to Trial?
- A lot of cases are settled in what we call pre-suit period. You treat until you reach what we call maximum medical improvement, at least in the eyes of your doctors. A settlement demand is made to the at-fault party’s insurance company. The insurance company and your attorney with your input decide that the claim ought to be resolved without reverting to a law suit. If the case cannot be amicably resolved, then your case is put in suit.You go through a discovery process and eventually to trial. The statistics are that 90% plus of cases are settled, and that is still the same for those cases that are put in suit. In other words, more than 90 cases that are put in pre-suit are settled, and even those cases that are put in suit. The chances are that your case can be resolved amicably. However, it may require filing a suit and heading towards trial. Oftentimes those cases are “proverbially settled” on the court house steps. Again, your chances are better than 90% that your case will be settled.
Is There a Minimum Amount of Medical Bills Needed to File Suit?
There are basically two types of damages. There are economic damages which are medical bills and wage loss, and then there are non-economic damages which are things like pain and suffering, mental anguish, inconvenience, disability or impairment, and loss of the ability to enjoy life’s pleasures. We look at both types of damages in evaluating a claim. We look at the economic damages, the medical bills and the wage loss, and we also look at the non-economic damages.
One of our largest cases had $14,000 in medical bills, and there was not really any long term future medical care that looked like would be needed, but the individual had an inner ear problem that kept them from working as an auto mechanic and really affected their entire life. Despite the fact that there was only $14,000 in medical bills, that case went to trial and settled for multimillion dollars, so there’s not really a minimum of amount of medical bills before one should look at filing a claim.
