You have been injured in a car accident and you are wondering what the next step is to recover your losses. How are you going to pay the medical bills? You are going to miss work, and you will lose income, how are you going to recover those lost wages? These are all valid questions, and discussing those questions with an experience Personal Injury Attorney like Rick H. Merrill will help ease your mind.
When you contact Rick to answer your questions about your injury accident, he will ask you a series of questions to gather more information about your case. In a sense he is doing a claim evaluation to determine if you have a viable claim to help recover your losses from the accident. Rick will ask you details of the accident. For example, what happened during the accident, when did the accident happen, was there a citation issued and who received the citation, did the other party have insurance, what is the name of their insurance company, do you have an adjusters contact phone number, did you go to the doctor right away, how long have you been in treatment, have you missed any work because of this accident? These questions are all very important questions that Rick will need answers to help determine if he can recover your losses from the accident.
The more information that you are able to provide Rick, the better he will be able to evaluate your claim. For example there is a statute of limitations on most injury cases. The definition of statute of limitations is a type of federal or state law that restricts the time within which legal proceedings may be brought against an individual. In a personal injury case you generally have 3 years from the date of the accident to file a claim against an individual who has caused harm against you. However some cases have different time limits. So it is important that when you do talk with Rick about your injury you provide as much information as possible so he can help you recover your losses.
