Most Americans are 3 months away from homelessness. All it takes is a single unexpected expense that drains your savings and leaves you without the means to pay your bills–something like a car accident that results in serious injury, for example.
Even a minor injury from a car accident can leave you with mounting medical bills. You may miss work, and your hospital may not take your health insurance when treating an injury that you got in an accident.
Most people wind up using their savings to cover these expenses, but if your injuries are more severe your savings won’t last long.
If you’ve been injured in a car accident, a personal injury attorney will be able to help. They’ll ensure you’re able to get medical treatment and recoup your out-of-pocket expenses.
The Law Offices of Kenneth Morgan Biggs & John Greenslade offer Central Texans a way to get back on their feet after being injured in an auto accident. They’re dedicated auto accident lawyers that are ready to fight for their clients.
Kenneth Morgan Biggs is a retired marine and former Assistant District Attorney with extensive civil and criminal trial experience. He leverages that trial experience to ensure that insurance companies and negligent parties pay what they owe.
Prior to becoming a personal injury lawyer, John Greenslade worked as an in-house corporate attorney for insurance companies. He knows the opposition and is able to provide aggressive and confident negotiation for his clients.
If you’ve been injured in an accident, the first step you should take is to get to a doctor to get medical attention. They may not accept your health insurance.
Schedule a consultation with a lawyer as early as you can. They’ll let you know whether or not they believe you have a good personal injury case.
Your lawyers will begin documenting your injuries and expenses, including a projection of how much the injury will cost you in the future.
Your lawyers will negotiate with the insurance company using the evidence and documented expenses to get the right compensation.
If the insurance company offers an appropriate settlement, the case will end here. If not, it may go to trial in court.
Doctor visits, hospital stays, and advanced imaging are all expensive. Your attorney will ensure that you can pay those bills.
If you missed work because of an injury, you stand to get compensated for the days that you missed.
Most wrecks that have injuries also have substantial property damage, which your lawyers will recover for you.
In major cases, your lawyer may recover compensation for future medical expenses or last wages due to disability.
Personal injury lawyers get paid on a contingency fee. You don’t pay them anything out-of-pocket, but they earn a percentage of the final settlement. If they don’t win, you don’t owe anything.
If anyone was injured in the car accident, you should probably consult a lawyer. It’s best to do so early in the process, because they can help ensure you get to see a doctor and are prepared for the case.
It depends. Most of the time a car accident case can get resolved really quickly. The insurance company is eager to offer a settlement and close the case.
However, in some cases where there’s an injury your lawyer may want to ensure that you’ve made as full a recovery as possible so that your compensation adequately covers your medical bills.
Possibly. Your lawyer may advise you that a trial will get the compensation you need. However, the decision about whether to accept a settlement or go to trial is up to you.
A settlement is a lump sum payment that your lawyer will request from the insurance company. It’s meant to cover all of your expenses that resulted from the accident. After paying out the settlement, the case will be concluded.
It’s difficult to provide accurate information about how much a claim is worth. There are monetary damages that can be measured–things like medical bills, property damage, and lost wages.
There are also non-monetary damages, like pain and suffering, future medical expenses, and disability that may be compensated.
Your car accident lawyer will discuss the potential value of your claim throughout the process.
Injuries sustained in a wreck can spiral out of control and lead to medical debt–and worse. Biggs & Greenslade won’t let that happen.
