Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury
At Klaiman Edmonds LLP, we understand you may have questions about your personal injury case. Below is a list of frequently asked questions and what you should know about the claims process.
Personal Injury FAQs
Should I sign a settlement with the insurance company? Do not sign anything until we have reviewed your case to determine if you should pursue a claim and potentially litigation to get the proper benefits after an accident.
What does contingency mean? Cases taken on a contingency basis mean you do not pay anything upfront, and we get paid only if we recover in your case.
Will I have to pay costs to the defendant? We can help you receive cost protection assistance to reduce liability cost exposure in your case.
Do I have a case if I don’t have insurance coverage? Yes, if the person at fault for the accident has insurance.
What are accident benefits and what can I recover? Accident benefits are paid by your own insurance company and it does not matter if you were at fault for the accident. You may be able to receive benefits for your medical expenses, lost wages, rehabilitation costs and housekeeping costs.
What is a tort claim? You may be able to pursue a tort claim if you have suffered a serious injury that will affect you for the rest of your life. A tort claim is filed against the party responsible for your injuries and seeks to recover damages for more than what your insurance would cover.
