Common Questions After an Injury: The Answers You Need to Know

After the initial shock of a car accident, back injury, workplace accident, or other serious injury has worn off, it is common for anxiety and worries to creep in. In your situation, you may have many questions about your future. The most common questions personal injury attorneys in Hollywood and South Florida hear in injury cases include:

Will I get better? How will my injury affect my life?

One of the first questions that many injured people have is what will happen next. While no one can predict the future, new technology is available for patients who have sustained brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations, and other life-changing injury. These patients are now able to lead fuller lives than ever before. Prompt healing can help improve the chances of a fuller recovery, as can quality medical care and follow-up care with services such as rehabilitation.

How will I pay for my treatment and my bills?

Money unfortunately becomes a source of concern for many people who have been seriously injured. After a serious injury, many people are unable to work and therefore lose out on income opportunities. In addition, many people who have suffered a serious injury have to pay considerable medical bills, car repair bills, and other costs related to their injury.

There are many ways to pay these costs. If an injury was caused by a workplace accident in Hollywood or anywhere in South Florida, patients may qualify for workers compensation or other benefits. In the event of a car accident, car insurance may handle some of the costs of the injury. If the injuries were caused by violence or negligence, a civil suit may be launched to seek damages. To find out what is possible in your case, it is a good idea to contact a personal injury attorney in your community to discuss your rights.

Why did this happen?

In some cases, it can be hard to move on if you have questions about what caused your accident. In these cases, reading police reports or speaking to an insurance adjuster can help you determine what authorities believe may have caused your accident. You can also choose to work with an investigator or an attorney, as these professionals can help you get the answers you need about your accident and injuries.

How can I understand the insurance process or this settlement offer?

It can be difficult to understand your rights after an accident and many of the people you speak with – including representatives of companies and insurance adjusters – may use legal language you are not familiar with. If you have been made a settlement offer or an insurance offer, you will want to get legal advice from an attorney to help you determine whether the money offered will cover the total, long-term costs of your injuries. If the money is not adequate, an attorney can help you explore your rights and the options you may have to secure a fairer amount.
