Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Claims in Hackensack
FAQ: Do I have to see a doctor to pursue a claim based on personal injury?
Generally, yes, and you should see a doctor as soon as possible after your accident. First, the doctor’s recommendations will be instrumental in ensuring that you heal properly, but they will also be used to establish that your personal injury was caused by the accident in question. Your doctor’s ongoing recommendations will provide a baseline for the medical expenses that you can expect to recover in your personal injury case, both currently and in the future. Without a medical professional’s expert opinion as to the future outlays required to treat your injury, your basis for recovering compensation for those anticipated expenses will be much weaker.
FAQ: How (and why) does the insurance company or court assign percentage of fault in determining my personal injury compensation award if fault is contested?
Because some personal injury cases involve accidents in which both parties played a role in causing the accident, the courts will assign a percentage of fault to each party to determine how much of your compensation award you can actually receive. In many personal injury cases, your lawyer’s skills and experience in crafting a strong argument in your favor will be critical to achieving a favorable outcome when it comes to assigning percentage of fault in your case. The strength of all evidence will be considered, as well as our ability to locate and use evidence that mitigates your own responsibility.
