FAQ: Understanding Personal Injury Laws
At the law firm of Mitchell Warnock, LLC, Mitch is dedicated to empowering his clients with as much information as possible. Personal injury claims are complex and you undoubtedly have countless questions. As a seasoned Georgia lawyer, he can provide you the answers you need to have a strong case. Here are answers to some of the most commonly asked personal injury questions.
How Long Does A Personal Injury Claim Take?
It depends. Do not expect to receive compensation overnight, within a few weeks or even a few months. Personal injury claims can take months, sometimes years, to resolve. The length of the claims process depends on countless factors, including facts surrounding your medical care.
Why Did The Insurance Company Deny My Claim?
If your claim has been denied, it is not the end of the world. Insurance companies may outright deny claims from the onset and you may not even know why.
Personal injury claims for benefits may be denied due to:
- A delay in seeking medical treatment
- Failure to attend medical appointments
- A preexisting condition
- The claimant being at fault for the injury
- The claim form was not filled out correctly or is missing information
As your lawyer, I can challenge the denial and provide evidence to prove the extent of your injuries and damages incurred.
How Much Is My Claim Worth?
The worth of your claim depends on numerous factors, including the extent of the injury, how long you will require treatment, policy limits, whether you are able to work and the amount of bills you have incurred. Just because your friend settled a car crash claim for $20,000 does not mean that you will too. We will do everything in our power to maximize the worth of your claim so that you can recover any damages you may be entitled to receive.
