Who pays my medical bills if I’m injured in a car wreck?
If you were injured in a car wreck and were not at fault, you will likely be making a claim for medical bills with the insurance company of the at-fault driver. That said, there are a number of additional factors to be aware of. For example, insurance companies will not “pay as you go”, meaning they will not reimburse you for each doctor visit one at a time. The insurance company may also want you to sign a broad medical release that would allow them to get your medical records from years before the wreck. Additionally, if you need extended medical treatment, you need to be aware that North Carolina has a limited window of time within which to file a claim, so you want to be careful not to miss that deadline. There may be other ways to get some of your medical expenses paid in the meantime including things like filing your own health insurance and collecting the med pay from your own auto insurance policy.
How much is my case worth?
The value of a personal injury case in North Carolina varies greatly depending on many factors. Some of those factors may include: type of injuries, whether surgery was required, other damages such as lost wages, length and cost of medical treatment, gaps in medical treatment, and whether enough insurance exists to fully compensate you for your full damages. A personal injury lawyer from Paynter Law can review the facts specific to your case, identify available insurance coverage, and advise you on the best way to make sure you recover the compensation you deserve.
Do I really need a lawyer?
Depending on the kind of case and the facts of your case, you may or may not need a lawyer. If you were injured and had little or no medical treatment, you may be able to resolve your claim on your own. There are several things you’ll want to keep in mind, though, to avoid missing deadlines or damaging your claim. Some things to keep in mind include, but are not limited to, the statute of limitations, whether your injuries are ongoing or permanent, whether liability has been determined, and whether there are any entities that will need to be reimbursed from your settlement proceeds. At Paynter Law, we offer a free consultation, so give us a call to learn more about whether your case might require the assistance of a lawyer.
Will I have to file a lawsuit and go to court?
Not all cases end up in the courtroom. Many North Carolina personal injury cases can be settled out of court through negotiations with an insurance company. Sometimes, however, it is necessary to file a lawsuit. For example, if you’re injured, you have a limited amount of time to file a claim for your damages. Sometimes, if that time is running out, it becomes necessary to file a lawsuit to protect yourself. Other times, the insurance companies make offers that are not nearly enough to fully compensate you for your damages, so filing a lawsuit becomes necessary.
