The question I get asked most often, right after how much is my claim worth, is "how long will it take for my claim to settle?" The typical attorney response I’ll give you is, it depends. But seriously, it depends on various factors; the most crucial piece is that we cannot even begin negotiating until you, as the injured person, are finished treating

  • We only get one bite at the apple, so we cannot come back later for more.
  • We need to know you won’t incur future medical bills.
  • We need to know what the subrogation claim will be from your health insurer (this is how much you’ll have to pay back to your health insurer)

Why do I practice personal injury? - Kyle Wright

I love meeting new people. For me, the more relationships we can build provides for a richer, fuller life. In these new introductions, I find my new acquaintance’s reactions to my career quite entertaining.

When I meet new people, the vast majority of my interactions always seem to go the same way. They are interested in my practice areas, and then upon hearing that I practice personal injury law, their mood changes, and I can see how turned off they are in an instant… this is EXACTLY why I developed an injury practice.

Personal Injury Attorneys are Free! (kind of)

We all know how expensive it can be to hire an attorney. As an attorney who frequently litigates cases, I will be the first to acknowledge that attorney fees can (and do!) mount rather quickly, especially in contested matters. This fact is no secret, as the general public is pretty well aware of how expensive attorneys can be. Most require an upfront retainer and then provide the client with regular statements with a bill that reflects the attorney’s time tracked by the tenth of the hour. However, injury attorneys do not bill this way. Personal Injury Attorneys are Free! (kind of)

When you sign up for car insurance, studies show that most people just select what his or her agent first recommends. The problem with this is when injured clients come in for an initial consult, it’s too often we find their coverage is not appropriate for that client’s unique situation. This post serves as an introduction into auto insurance policies, and some of the things that you should look for when reviewing your auto policy.

Sixth step to take after a vehicle accident - Follow up & listen

One of the biggest hurdles we face as Plaintiff attorneys in representing injured clients is the accusations from adjusters and defense attorneys that a client has a gap in treatment. If you retain our firm, my one constant instruction to clients is simply "Get Better!" You will hear me say it every time we talk. Of course, I say this because I want to take that burden of handling the administrative issues off of clients' shoulders, but I also say it because I know that once a client stops treating for an injury or takes time off for treatment, it becomes much more challenging to include future treatments after gaps into an adjusters valuation.

After you have been injured in an accident, it becomes your life. Going to treatments, dealing with the ongoing symptoms, trying to find a new car if yours is totaled or needs repairing… the list goes on. Because you are the one going through the experience, you know every little detail. The problem is that when an insurance adjuster is evaluating your claim, it's often not until months after you have completed treating for your injuries. Whether your treatment ends months or years after the accident, the insurance adjuster evaluating your claim is going to heavily rely on the medical records from the providers at which you are treated.

Now that the dust from the accident has settled, the focus turns to get the proper medical treatment. Nobody should ever be so concerned about their future insurance claim that they prioritize "making a good case" ahead of getting the appropriate medical treatment. When we meet with prospective clients that are more concerned about the value of their case rather than treating their injuries, it is a red flag for us. Your number one concern should be: "get better!"

At some point after your accident, your claim is going to be evaluated by an insurance adjuster in order to determine liability and the value of your injuries. That evaluation might be months in the future, and it could even be years. Regardless, the initial reports made with the responding officer and other first responders will be relied upon when your case is evaluated.

Seriously. Imagine you’ve just been in an accident, your adrenaline is spiking, and your mind is racing a mile a minute. You can’t change what just happened, but you are in total control of what happens going forward. It sounds simple, but taking a deep breath (or several), allows oxygen to go to your brain, thus relieving tension and emotion. This will enable you to think clearly so that you can adequately assess the situation.
