Legal Answers
3 Questions Answered
Q. Should you agree to release liability limits?
A: Yes. Your liability limits will be discovered one way or another. Disclosing it early will allow for possible resolution of the case short of litigation. You can avoid a lawsuit and being sued for the accident.
Q. Geico is denying my medical claim. They are the insurance company of the person who hit me and won't pay.
A: You should consult a personal injury attorney to pursue your claim. In a personal injury case, you are entitled to general and special damages. General damages consist of the pain and suffering your endured due to the injuries you suffered. Special damages include your medical bills, future recommended medical treatment, lost wages and any other damages incurred. Having said that, your damages from your case is likely more than simply the $385.00 you incurred for past medical expenses.
Q. In a personal injury case who should the injured party be in communications with about the case?
A: You should only speak to your attorney. Do not communicate with the at-fault party and/or try to determine fault at the scene of the incident. Do not speak to the insurance company, even your own, until you speak to an attorney. Anything you say will be used against you and you want to make sure your rights are preserved completely. If you've been injured, give us a call to find out how we can help.
