Frequently Asked Questions
What is a personal injury case?
If you are physically and/or emotionally injured because someone else was negligent, you may have a personal injury case. Being negligent means a person or organization is at fault at least in part for causing injury and or death. Our goal is to clearly define liability on behalf of our personal injury victims. Personal injury law can include many types of accidents such as: truck accidents, car accidents, motorcycle accidents, medical malpractice, pharmaceutical negligence, wrongful death, birth, and neonatal injuries, and child abuse.
What is the personal injury liability?
Liability is defined as the state of being responsible for something, especially by law. People, companies, and governments can be held responsible for negligence. If you are injured and believe someone is responsible for your injury – they may be liable for this injury, therefore responsible for any cost associated with your injury.
Will my personal injury case go to trial?
In many instances, we are able to reach a settlement without going to trial. Typically this is done through the process of mediation. If we cannot reach fair compensation, via mediation – we will go to trial.
What is mediation with regards to personal injury?
Mediation is a process where each side of a case agrees to use a neutral third party to try to resolve the claim without going to trial. It’s important to know how personal injury mediation works. Mediation can be voluntary between two parties, but most often mediation is mandatory before a judge will allow your case to go to trial. If your case is sent to mediation, then your attorney and the insurance defense attorney will try to agree on who to use as the mediator. The mediator is the neutral third party. Both parties agree on a date, time, location, and mediator.
How do you know if the mediator conducting the mediation is unbiased and fair?
A good mediator addresses the weaknesses of each side and suggests making compromises. Mediators explain to the plaintiff why they should lower their demand and encourage the defense to raise their offer. A fair mediator asks questions throughout the process to allow each side to re-evaluate their position. Essentially, the mediator will go back and forth between each party until a settlement is reached.
What happens at the end of personal injury mediation?
When a settlement is reached, the parties will sign a written agreement defining the terms of the settlement agreement. Then the attorneys will prepare the necessary paperwork to file with the court to pay the claim. Then, the plaintiff’s client signs a release agreeing that the case is over. If a settlement is not reached, then typically the case will go to trial.
Who will pay my medical bills?
Most victims of a personal injury worry about how they will pay their medical bills. There are different answers to this question depending on your case. Your auto or health insurance may cover your medical costs, or you may have to rely on another party’s insurance carrier. In any case, the best course of action is to speak with an attorney at Kats, Jamison & Associates to discuss your personal injury case. Our initial consultations are completely free.
