Why Should I Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

1.

Know the system

Health insurance companies use various approaches to cut costs. Examples of these include copay accumulators, nonmedical switching, step therapy, and prior authorization.

2.

Know your rights

As a result of these tactics, your insurer may not cover certain treatments prescribed to you or may require you to take a number of steps before your treatment is approved. While your experience with your health insurer may be frustrating and demoralizing, we are here to help.

3.

Make an Informed Decision

If you’re thinking about getting life insurance, be sure to do your research and speak with a financial advisor to get the best policy for your needs. It’s an important decision that should not be taken lightly, but it can give you and your loved one peace of mind knowing that you’re prepared for anything.

4.

5.

Insurance companies don't want you to ask for help

There are many reasons why an insurance company may deny a claim. Some of these reasons are justified — for example, if a claim is not filed within a certain time frame. However, insurance companies can wrongfully deny claims in an attempt to avoid paying benefits.

Step 4: Filing Your Insurance Claim.
It’s a legal case you can bring if you’ve been hurt in an accident that was wholly or partially someone else’s fault. It’s the official process of recovering compensation from the other party responsible. The compensation is paid by the other side’s insurance company. There are no upfront costs and you pay nothing if your claim doesn’t succeed.
You have the right to file a personal injury claim against anyone who causes you to sustain physical injuries by their reckless, careless, or negligent acts. You also have the right to represent yourself in a personal injury claim against the at-fault party.
The value of your injury claim will depend on multiple factors including the severity of your injuries, whether your injuries will require future medical care, and the insurance policies available to compensate you.

The short answer to the question, “How long does a personal injury case take” is anywhere between a few months and two years. Sometimes, a client’s financial situation dictates how long a personal injury case takes.
As a very rough guide, a claim may take 6 to 12 months if liability is accepted by the treatment or care provider immediately. If liability is disputed, it could take 12 to 18 months for more complicated claims.
