FAQ: How do I know how much I’ll recover from my personal injury case? Generally speaking, knowing what your total medical expenses are gives us a good and very rough estimate of what the possible recovery is in your personal injury case. However, there are many factors in addition to medical expenses that should be considered in valuing a case.
Q: I was hurt, but I am worried about suing someone personally. Why can’t I just sue their insurance company? If you’ve been hurt by another driver or at someone’s home, Georgia law requires you to make a claim against the person that is responsible for causing your injuries. Our law does not permit a direct against a liability insurance company except in very limited cases, such as in some trucking cases.
Q: Will I be responsible for attorney’s fees and/or costs if we do not win? No, our Firm does charge a fee or seek reimbursement of costs in personal injury cases if our client does not obtain a recovery.
Q: My total medical expenses are $30,000.00. Will I have to pay back all of that amount out of my personal injury settlement? Almost certainly no. First, if an insurer, Medicare, or Medicaid paid expenses to medical care providers, you may have to reimburse the insurer, Medicare, or Medicaid some amount, but it will almost certainly be much less than the originally billed amount.
Q: It is someone else’s fault that I was hurt. Why should I use my health insurance to pay the medical expenses? If you have been hurt in an accident that was someone else’s fault, we almost always recommend that you use your health insurance policy to pay medical expenses. The short answer for this is reason is that using your health insurance policy will almost always result in a great net recovery for you.
Q: I was hit by a drunk driver, but I wasn’t injured. Do I have a claim? Yes, you have a claim if you were struck by a drunk driver and it may shock you how much that claim is worth.
