Frequently Asked Questions
Many injured victims have never had to hire an attorney or been involved in any legal process. If you feel overwhelmed with questions about the process of pursuing compensation and what you can expect, you’re not alone. As your attorney, we’ll happily answer every single question you have to the best of our ability. Below are general answers to just some of the questions you may have.
Do I have to file a lawsuit?
Whether or not you have to file a lawsuit will depend on a few factors.
First, what caused your injuries? If you were injured in a car accident or in a slip and fall accident on someone’s property, as examples, you may have to start the process of pursuing compensation for your injuries by filing a claim with your or their insurance company. If you were injured in a car accident, you have to file a claim with your own insurance company first. If your coverage is insufficient to cover your accident-related injuries and losses, then you may be able to file a claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company.
If you were injured due to other negligent actions by an individual or company, you would have to file a lawsuit in order to obtain compensation for your injuries.
Even if you file a claim with an insurance company for compensation for your injuries, you may still have to file a lawsuit later. After filing your claim with the insurance company, you and your attorney will negotiate with the insurance company for the compensation you deserve. Negotiating with insurance companies can be challenging because they generally want to pay injured victims as little as possible for their injuries. Insurance companies are in the business of profit-making. If you’re unable to receive the full compensation you request from the insurance company, you can file a lawsuit against the person who harmed you to try to get compensated fairly.
Can I be compensated for the income I’ve lost due to my injuries?
Yes, you can be compensated for income or wages you’ve lost as a result of your injuries. A hospital stay while you’re receiving treatment for your injuries or the substantial, long-term impact that your injuries have on your mobility can both cause you to miss work or become unemployed. This can result in significant financial stress you wouldn’t be facing if it weren’t for the negligent party’s actions.
That’s why this is one of several losses you could recover compensation for. The other losses you can be compensated for include:
- Medical bills for treatment for your injuries
- Loss of future earning ability
- Property damage repairs or replacement
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Permanent disability, disfigurement, or scarring
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of quality of life
- Loss of consortium (personal relationships)
You could also be awarded punitive damages, depending on the at-fault party’s actions that led to your harm. This type of compensation is only awarded by the court and in rare circumstances.
