Do I Need A Lawyer?
Yes. To be clear, you are not required to have a lawyer, but having an experienced lawyer can level the playing field with the insurance companies and make sure you get the financial compensation you deserve. The insurance companies will have lawyers looking out for them; shouldn’t you have a law firm looking out for you?
How WIll I Pay My Medical Bills?
Personal injury attorneys do not get paid unless they obtain compensation for accident victims. Their payment comes out of the final settlement or jury award. it is often possible to front the costs of medical treatment, repaid once the case settles or results in a verdict. Your initial costs can be paid for by your own health insurance or through your auto insurance policy’s no-fault coverage.
Who Is Responsible?
Ultimately, the insurance provider for the negligent party will be the one to cough up financial compensation for your medical bills, your pain and suffering, your lost wages and other accident-related damages.
What If The Other Driver Doesn’t Have Insurance?
If you were injured in a hit-and-run or by a driver with inadequate insurance, it may be possible to collect compensation through your own policy’s uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. Attorney Michael R. Franzese will identify all available sources of compensation in your case.
Should I Talk To The Insurance Company?
It is best to save your talking for your lawyer. However, you definitely should not sign anything from the insurance company without running it by your lawyer first. An innocent signature could result in you signing away your rights. The insurance companies profit by finding ways not to pay your medical bills and other costs; their incentive is to save money on your treatment. You need someone looking to maximize your compensation and make sure you get what you deserve.
