Personal Injury FAQ

Helping You Understand Your Rights After an Accident

Suffering an injury at the hands of someone else is a deeply disorienting experience. Many of our clients come to us because they simply don't know what to do next. What kind of claims do they need to file? Do they qualify for a personal injury claim, or should they file for workers' compensation benefits? What do they do to get medical care for their loved one, or how do they afford a funeral in the wake of a wrongful death? Most of our clients ask an even simpler question: "with all my medical expenses, how do I provide for my family?"

What Do I Do If I'm Not Getting the Best Care?

One of the most common questions that we hear from people who contact us concerns the care that they're receiving for their injury. If you feel as if you are not receiving the best possible medical care, you may need to switch doctors. You need a doctor who will listen to your concerns and help improve your medical conditions. A doctor chosen by your company or an insurance adjuster may not have your best interests at heart. You want a doctor who cares about your well-being first and foremost. Do not settle for a doctor who does not listen to your problems—find a medical provider who will listen to you and assist you throughout your case. If you feel like you need a better doctor, please contact us. We can be reached at (888) 493-1629. We can work with you to determine who the most qualified doctor is to treat your particular problem.

What If My Employer Wants Me to Sign an Agreement?

Another common concern is employees injured on the job who feel as if they are being pressured into signing an agreement. After an accident, companies often try to force injured workers to sign an agreement or release in exchange for a small payment. You should never sign anything without talking to a skilled personal injury attorney. Most often, the insurance companies are really trying to pay you the least amount possible. They will also require you to give up your legal rights later on. For this reason, it is imperative that after being involved in a personal injury accident you retain legal representation immediately. You should not sign anything, or give any kind of a statement, before consulting the situation over with an injury attorney. Having a skilled lawyer on your side will help you avoid jeopardizing your case.
