Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Claims
The biggest reason our clients come to us is because they have too many questions unanswered about how to pursue fair compensation in a personal injury claim and what happens when a case is made. Here are a few that you may have:
How should I interact with an insurance company?
The goal of an insurance company or adjuster is to give accident victims the lowest compensation deal possible. We do not want to see our clients pay out of pocket for their medical bills, therapy and other expenses because their compensation was too low. At Johnson, Mulholland, Cochrane, Cochrane, Yung & Engler, P.L.C., we talk to insurance companies in a way that gets our clients the most compensation possible.
How are medical bills handled after a personal injury?
In many cases, your own insurance company will pay while you pursue your claim, then subrogate the claim to the liable party’s insurance.
What should I expect when filing a personal injury claim?
When you work with one of our Fort Dodge injury accident attorneys, we take the necessary steps so that you get fair compensation. We may request additional documentation, such as police and medical reports and other information so that a proper investigation can be made. We always aim to negotiate a fair settlement, but we will not hesitate to take a case to trial.
