Yes, in many cases.
If you have been injured by someone else’s carelessness, you may be dealing with:
You don’t have to face that all alone.
A personal injury lawyer can often help solve a lot of problems for you:
After you are injured in an accident, it is very important that you get trained medical professionals to examine your injuries. You may be more injured than you think. And untreated injuries often just get worse.
Even if there is an insurance company or other business involved, offering a quick settlement to make you go away, it may not even be enough to cover your medical bills and repair costs. If your injuries are severe, your medical professionals may prescribe ongoing therapeutic care, which can add up quickly as healthcare costs have skyrocketed.
Having your credit ruined because of medical bills from an accident someone else caused is just adding insult to injury.
We deal with issues like this every day and are skilled at making the at-fault driver pay for our clients’ medical bills after a car accident. If the other driver’s car insurance policy isn’t sufficient to pay for your medical bills, we will work to make your own insurance company cover those bills.
Many of our clients who were injured through no fault of their own are unable to afford the significant medical care they needed. Some were afraid to see a doctor because they didn’t have health insurance, and could not pay.
At Justinian & Associates, our team of experienced personal injury lawyers works every day with qualified medical professionals who treat accident victims. Many of these professionals will treat you at no up-front cost to you.
Instead, they receive a Letter of Protection. A Letter of Protection is a letter we send to a medical provider that guarantees if we get a settlement in your personal injury case, we will repay the medical provider out of that settlement.
If we aren’t able to get a settlement in your accident case, the medical provider will not be paid and you will not be billed.
Medical providers are taking a risk that we can settle your case for a fair dollar amount. They are comfortable taking that risk because we are very good at settling our clients’ car accident cases at fair value. If you need help getting medical treatment for your injuries after a car accident, call us right now and we will work to get you to the right medical specialists for treatment at no up-front costs to you.
Insurance companies are businesses. Like all public companies, they are required by law to focus on profits.
Insurance company employees may have compassion for your pain and suffering. But they work for the insurance company. It’s their job to use any statements you make, or legal theories they can construct, to deny or reduce compensation. They will offer as little as they can get you to accept. It’s not personal. It’s their job.
But you don’t have to face stressful phone calls and negotiations alone.
An Austin personal injury lawyer is experienced in dealing with insurance companies. The attorneys at Justinian & Associates know their tactics. We understand the law and how the court system works, and we never retreat from fighting for your rights.
Even if the other side was clearly at fault, we can contact the insurance company to ensure that your car is quickly repaired and a rental car is provided if needed. And if your car is totaled, a personal injury lawyer can help negotiate a fair settlement.
One thing is for certain: when you speak to the insurance company, they will consult a lawyer. In fact, probably an entire department full of lawyers, all of whom understand that victory lies in achieving the very lowest possible settlement you can be convinced to accept. Before speaking to any insurance company employee, you want to know your rights.
Many people who are involved in an auto accident do not know all of their rights and responsibilities. Even simple car accident cases can have complicated legal rules involved.
You might know you only have a certain amount of time to make a claim or file a lawsuit. But the amount of time you have varies depending upon who caused the accident. For example, there are different deadlines for government employees and regular citizens.
Your insurance company has to give you the benefit of “good faith and fair dealing.” But the other driver’s insurance company does not.
An Austin personal injury attorney is trained to know those rules and explain them to you. If you’re got any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact us right now for immediate help. The longer you wait, the more you risk losing your rights.
If you or your loved one is coping with hospitalization or physical and emotional pain after the accident, you may be too busy or injured to think about how you will pay all the bills.
If you are dealing with a grievous harm or even the wrongful death of your loved one, you might not be in a position, emotionally or mentally, to make complex financial or other serious decisions on your own.
You may feel overwhelmed, facing an uncertain future.
An Austin personal injury attorney is someone on your side, who can be calm and objective. At Justinian & Associates, we are warriors for the injured. Everyone of our lawyers is driven by a sense of fairness. We fight for those who cannot fight for themselves. And our only goal is to get you justice, whatever that means for you.
And if you were involved in a car accident, we can help you navigate the sometimes complex process of how and where to get your car repaired after an accident.
At Justinian & Associates, our attorneys work to ensure that the insurance company pays a fair amount to repair or replace your vehicle.
You probably know that the other driver’s insurance company should pay to repair or replace your car. If you have been involved in an Austin auto accident, even if your car is properly repaired, you may even be entitled to an additional payment because a car is worth less after an accident than it was before.
That’s because fair or not, many people believe that a car is “never the same” after an accident. This is why we often recover “diminished value” settlements to compensate our clients for the loss of value of their vehicle. If you’re not sure what to do about your damaged car after an accident, our team of car accident lawyers can help. Contact us now for help.
Many of the injury lawyers and staff members at our law firm have been in car accidents themselves. We know that even minor accidents can cause major pain and suffering.
Worse still, that pain can interfere with your activities of everyday life, like walking, shopping, holding your child or pet, and performing your job.
Our car accident lawyers know how to make insurance companies pay fair settlement values for pain and suffering after a car accident.
We maintain a very expensive library of settlements from around the country broken down by injury. So we don’t just guess if a settlement offer is fair. We research it and make sure that the insurance company isn’t trying to settle your claim for less than it is worth. If you’re hurting and don’t know what your car accident case may be worth, please call us now so we can help.
Not only is missing time off of work because of a car accident annoying, it often costs money because many employers won’t pay workers for time spent at the doctor’s office.
Thankfully, the law requires an at-fault driver to reimburse the innocent driver for his or her lost wages. We will work to make sure that you’re properly compensated for all of the time you take off work due to your car accident.
Contact us now if you’ve missed work because of a car accident and need help getting paid for the hours or days that you missed.
