WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
If you have been injured in an accident, there are several things you need to know so that you and your attorney have the same expectations. These include:
- The health insurance that is covering your treatment may be more like a loan. Most health insurance policies possess a section about “subrogation.” This is the right to be paid back for any money given as part of one’s coverage. Insurance companies will seek to enforce this “right” in a number of ways, and all of them may involve you having to pay for your injury expenses out of pocket.
- You are not guaranteed compensation. It is actually against the law in our state to promise or guarantee compensation. Most any attorney who represents individuals in personal injury cases will have lost at some point. However, you and your Alpharetta personal injury lawyer can maximize your chances of success by thoroughly preparing your case before it moves forward.
- A lawsuit is not the same as the lottery. If you are successful in your suit, you can expect to receive compensation for expenses related to medical treatment, therapy, pain and suffering, and lost wages. You should be wary of any attorney who attempts to value your case before an investigation has begun. You should know somewhat accurately what you may receive at the completion of your case.
