There are many questions that may arise while navigating the claims process. We encourage you to contact our office or your lawyer should you require any information, however, here are some questions that we are often asked.
Once we get a complete and comprehensive understanding of your medical situation and injuries, we will be at a better position to answer this question. Each situation is unique, and an amount may be larger depending on the severity of the injuries and the impact they have on your life. With the help of one of the lawyers on our team, we will ensure that you receive the maximum award possible.
It is your body, so you know best. If you feel that you can go back to work, and your doctor shares that sentiment, then there is no reason you should not go back to work. On the other hand, if you do not feel you are ready to go to work, then we will make sure you get the proper benefits (when available) in the interim, so that you can continue to live your life without the pressures of having to pay for expenses.
Mostly you just have to worry about getting better. Every now and then you may have to attend our office to give a statement, or even a different office to be interviewed about your injuries. You may also have to go for an independent assessment ordered by the insurance company. In any case we will support you along the way. We are well entrenched in the medical community and will make sure you get the best legal guidance, and also the best in medical care.
While many people are anxious to get a settlement (and that is the only way we get paid), we will only settle the file when it is best for you—both from a medical and financial perspective. This date will range depending on a multitude of circumstances, including the insurance involved, the extent of injuries, etc. No matter what, however, we proceed according to your instructions.
This is surely one of the most common questions we receive. While often people will dismiss their injuries as insignificant, we think it is always best to consult with us. Sometimes, injuries or incidents that appear to be “unworthy” of a call may turn out to be very serious. We are always happy to hear from you, and are available to help guide you through the claims process.
