If you have been injured, one of the worst aspects of this difficult experience is the uncertainty. You may be, understandably, worried about your future—you may not know how long or successful your recovery may be, whether or when you will be able to return to work, or how your injury will impact your family, lifestyle, and finances. With difficult questions like these, you need advice from an experienced personal injury lawyer.
The legal team at Consky & Associates has assembled some of the most frequently asked questions that we receive from clients; we hope these basic answers will give you a better understanding of some of the legal issues involved in personal injury matters. For more information, we offer a free initial consultation; call our office to schedule an appointment to discuss your unique situation.
If your injury resulted in medical bills, hospital treatment, follow-up visits, rehabilitation, and other related expenses, you may be able to obtain compensation for those costs through insurance claims. However, what most people don’t know is that they may be entitled to much more; you may be able to recover lost wages due to absences from work, rental car expenses, long-term care and assistance associated with your injury, and even compensation for the pain and suffering you’ve been through. An experienced personal injury lawyer like Harvey Consky will be able to examine your case and provide you with more information about your rights and the options available to you.
You can choose to give your lawyer the authority to settle a case on your behalf, or you can choose to review any settlement offer before making a final decision. Either way, you need to be in good communication with your lawyer, have a clear understanding about your expectations, and make sure that you are prepared to make informed decisions regarding your case.
Legal fees and fee structures can vary widely from lawyer to lawyer. At Consky & Associates, your initial consultation is free, and all our legal services are provided on a contingency basis—that means that you pay if and only if the firm is successful in recovering money for you. Our legal team will be more than happy to discuss your case and our fees during your initial consultation.
It depends on your specific case. Your insurer may have a provision in your policy that allows the insurance company to be repaid, out of the proceeds of a settlement, for any amount that the insurer has paid on your medical bills prior to the settlement.
