Personal Injury FAQ
Personal injuries leave victims with a lot of questions and even fewer answers. If you have received a personal injury due to another person’s reckless or negligent behavior here in Massachusetts, we at the Law Offices of Aleixo and Murray, P.C., can help.
To help you start on the right foot, here are some of the common questions of personal injuries, and their answers:
How Do I File A Personal Injury Claim?
The first step in filing a personal injury claim is to determine if you need to file one. In some cases, the liable party’s insurance will agree to cover all of the costs of your injury. Unfortunately, this is a rare occurrence, and when you need to fight for your best possible recovery, that is when you need an attorney.
An attorney will help you review your case, and determine what your best options are, and how to pursue them.
Do I Need An Attorney To Handle A Personal Injury Claim?
Of course it is not against the law to pursue a claim without an attorney, but the consequence of doing so is putting yourself at greater risk of not receiving the compensation you need to recover from your injuries.
At the Law Offices of Aleixo and Murray, P.C., you don’t pay us for your personal injury case until you receive compensation for your case.
How Much Is My Claim Worth?
There are a lot of factors that come into play when it comes to the total cost of a personal injury. We at the Law Offices of Aleixo and Murray, P.C., fight to include everything, including:
- Medical expenses
- Medical care
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
The more factors you account for, the better your compensation can be. It is always our goal to fight for the best possible compensation for our clients.
What If The Insurance Company Refuses To Pay?
Sometimes, after a car accident, the victim does not even need to file a claim. If the offending driver has insurance, there are instances in which their insurance covers your costs, saving you the time and energy of filing a claim.
If the insurance company refuses to pay or will only pay an insufficient portion of your damages, this is when you need an attorney. An experienced lawyer knows how to negotiate on your behalf, and is prepared to take things to court, if push comes to shove.
