When someone gets hurt, he or she might immediately wonder if the injury will keep him or her from being able to work. Perhaps the injury will lead to expensive medical care. In fact, one of the first things most injury victims think about after is whether they should go to the hospital at all. After all, American healthcare has become exceedingly expensive. A single visit to the emergency room can easily cost $10,000 or more, even if the injuries are relatively minor. For more serious injuries that require x-rays or surgical procedures, people might end up on the hook for $100,000 or more in medical costs.

Many people have the misconception that by hiring an attorney they are automatically “suing” the person who hurt them. In truth, this is just not how the process works. Instead, by hiring an attorney, you are just protecting yourself. Our firm begins every case by performing a thorough investigation in order to determine if someone else was truly at fault for your injuries. If so, the next step is figuring out if the at-fault party has insurance or the means to pay for your injuries. When an insurance company is involved, we will communicate directly with them, not the at-fault party. Most cases can be resolved with the insurance company without needing to even file a public lawsuit. Therefore, it is almost always the insurance company that pays, not the individual defendant.
Of course, there are exceptions. Sometimes a negligent person or company will fail to carry insurance. When this happens, you may need to pursue a judgment to collect the defendant’s assets. This is terribly unfortunate for everyone involved, but it is a poignant reminder to always carry good insurance. In auto accident cases, you may be able to collect from your own insurance company if you carry uninsured motorist coverage.
