Settlement Issues: What Does the Settlement Cover? Will There Be Any of It Left After Lawyer’s Fees and Medical Bills?

If you have suffered an injury due to an accident, you may be entitled by law to receive compensation in the form of lost wages, medical bills, and attorney’s fees.

Personal injury attorney-Samer habbasYour total settlement amount is affected by a lot of factors. The amount that covers your medical expenses will increase if: (a) you are unable to pay the medical bills without the settlement money; or (b) if you need to reimburse your med pay insurer. Furthermore, you will be reimbursed for the wages you lost due to time you had to take off of work due to your injury. This includes time taken off for doctor’s visits, hospital stays, and also for time taken off to recover at home. You are usually entitled to recover some lost wages, even if you were able to use your sick days to cover some of your time off.

In addition, you will usually be awarded a modest amount to cover the pain and suffering your accident caused you. One of the difficulties in pursuing personal injury cases is that the other party has the misconception that you can somehow get rich off your personal injury claim. However, the law entitles you only to what you deserve; without a good personal injury lawyer, this misconception may prevent you from receiving the settlement you deserve.
