Answering Columbia Clients’ Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Cases
Navigating a personal injury case can be overwhelming, and there are plenty of frequently asked questions. The Law Office of Michael Witherspoon in Columbia provides the answers you need to frequently asked personal injury questions.
How Will an Insurance Company Handle My Auto Repairs?
Your insurer should pay for your auto repairs up to your policy limits. If your insurer refuses to pay, your attorney can help you file a suit.
How Will an Insurance Company View My Injury?
Your insurance company wants to settle your claim as cheaply as possible and will take time to gather the facts beforehand. If you have not filed a personal injury lawsuit, you are less likely to receive an offer.
What Will Happen When I Am Out of Work Due to an Accident?
You have the option of filing for workers’ compensation benefits. Once approved, you will receive money to pay for medical bills and cover loss of wages.
Who Pays for Medical Treatment Needed Due to an Accident?
You are always responsible for your own medical bills unless you file a lawsuit and the judge decides otherwise.
Should I Sign a Medical Authorization?
Do not sign a medical authorization. Insurance adjusters may use access to your medical records to find ways to prove that you were the one at fault for your injury.
Should I Give a Recorded Statement?
Avoid giving a recorded statement. You may accidentally say something that can be used against you to weaken your case.
Will a Delay in Hiring an Attorney Hurt My Case?
Contact an attorney as soon as you realize you have a personal injury case. Delaying could cause you to make errors in paperwork or otherwise be detrimental to your case.
