Common Questions for the Injured
Our experienced attorneys have helped over 10,000 clients, and we would be honored to help you. Here are a few commonly asked questions. If you have questions related to your case, please reach out using our convenient contact form.
What Is the Deadline for Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
You only have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit. While this sounds like plenty of time, you should consider that most lawsuits arise only after insurance negotiations break down. You want to exercise all your options without fear of missing important deadlines. Contact an injury lawyer serving McArthur as soon as possible to gain a better understanding of your rights.
Should I Admit to Fault to the Insurance Company?
Insurance companies look for any reason to deny your claim. Any statement that you make about your role in the accident could jeopardize your claim. Liability is a complex legal issue that is best left to an attorney with knowledge and experience. You deserve time to rest and recuperate; let an attorney with KNR deal with the insurance company.
How Do I Establish Liability?
You cannot simply accuse the other party of causing your injuries without proof to back up your claim. When someone is negligent, we mean that they failed to act with the same level of care that any reasonable person would in similar circumstances. An attorney looks for evidence that shows that the other party breached their duty of care for some reason.
Photos and Videos
Cell phones make it easy to snap pictures right at the scene. Try to include evidence that points to negligence by the other party, such as a dangling wire that caused you to trip or your damaged vehicle.
Witnesses who saw and heard the incident can give your attorney a statement. Eyewitnesses should be interviewed as soon as possible while the details are fresh in their minds.
Police reports are often full of valuable information that your attorney can use to establish liability. You have the right to request a copy of the report to use with your claim.
Should I Go to the Hospital?
Going to the hospital might not be necessary for less severe injuries. However, you should still see a medical professional. People who “feel fine” often experience pain several hours after the accident. You do not want to risk making your injuries worse by delaying or avoiding medical care.
Going to the doctor is the first step in feeling better. It is also an essential component of your insurance claim. Insurance companies view a lack of medical documentation as suspect and could refuse to pay compensation. Diagnostic tests, lab results, and your medical provider’s notes are objective evidence of your injuries.
