What Payment Are You Entitled To?

Most personal injury cases involve bodily injury to a person due to the negligent acts of another. The most common personal injury cases involve automobile accidents, which often change the course of a person’s life forever due to what they suffer. According to North Carolina law, a person injured by the fault of another is entitled to receive payment for their medical bills, pain and suffering damages for both at the time of the accident and into the future after the accident, permanent injury or permanent scarring, loss of wages, loss of earning capacity, and more. It is very important that the opposing party takes into account the full extent of the damages that you are entitled to recover. Before you settle your claim with an insurance adjuster, you should consult with one of our personal injury lawyers to ensure that your settlement is fair. In fact, the attorneys at Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC can assist you step by step to make sure you are not persuaded by an insurance adjuster or opposing party to settle for an amount that is far less than what you fairly deserve for your suffering. In some cases, you may be working with numerous liability insurance policies and even uninsured and underinsured motorist insurance policies in order to recover a fair amount, and we can make this process as easy as possible for you. You may find that you are entitled to recover compensation from unexpected sources, and it is important that you receive a fair amount! We offer free consultations for personal injury cases, and we also offer contingency fee arrangements in which we do not get paid for any legal fees unless you recover. Please contact us today to see how we can assist you with your personal injury case!

Step by Step – The Negotiation Process

At Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC, we can navigate through the personal injury case process for you. Often, it is better to settle a claim directly by negotiation with an insurance adjuster rather than through a court trial. We gather your medical records and medical bills, photographs, witness statements, accident reports, and more, and compile a package along with a detailed narrative summary of your suffering and treatment. We then demand a particular amount of money which we believe is fair based on our knowledge, research, and experience, and engage in negotiations with insurance adjusters to try to arrive at a fair settlement amount for you. We also work with your medical providers in arranging for them to be paid fairly from your settlement amount for the services they provided to you related to your accident, and we also work with Medicare and other healthcare coverage providers regarding the subrogation claims that they have on your settlement. In cases in which settlement by negotiation is not possible, we can pursue trial in court if we deem that is the best route for your case! The negotiations process is crucial to working for the best results for you, considering every detail of what you have suffered and endured from your accident.

Frequently Asked Questions

When you are injured due to someone else’s negligence, there are numerous sources where you may be able to recover compensation for your medical bills and your pain and suffering. You may be able to recover from many unexpected places! Your compensation may come through an at-fault driver’s liability insurance, a car owner’s liability insurance, an at-fault individual’s assets, an at-fault party’s homeowner’s insurance, your own MedPay through your vehicle insurance coverage, a commercial vehicle insurance policy where a commercial vehicle is involved, your uninsured motorist coverage (even on another one of your vehicles), your own underinsured motorist coverage, the underinsured motorist coverage of the driver you were riding with, the underinsured motorist coverage of a resident of your household, or more other sources! You may not even realize all the coverage that you have paid for through your own vehicle insurance! Call us at Farmer & Morris Law today so our experienced attorneys can help you determine where you can recover compensation and obtain the fair amount that you deserve for your suffering!
Call Farmer & Morris Law today if you have been injured by someone else’s animal! An experienced attorney with our personal injury team can help assess your situation to see whether you may be able to recover compensation through the animal owner’s homeowner’s insurance policy or through their assets. Often, homeowner’s insurance is available to pay for your medical bills and pain and suffering in this situation. Do not settle for less than what you deserve!
If you are involved in a car accident, be sure to obtain the name, address, and phone number of the other driver. If the other driver has insurance, obtain the name of the insurance company along with and contact information of that company. Also, be sure to gather all your medical bills and records from treatment that you receive due to your accident injuries.
It is imperative that you receive quick medical attention after being involved in a car wreck if you are hurt at all! The longer you wait to be examined and treated, the harder it will be to succeed in a claim for the injuries you suffered in the wreck. Also, many injuries are not quickly visible, and a medical doctor will help you to determine what is really wrong with you and will provide the care that you really need. Do not wait until it is too late!
It is important for you to report your claim to the liability insurance provider quickly after you incur injury due to another party’s fault. However, you must be careful not to settle your claim too quickly before receiving your necessary medical treatment or at least having a doctor’s prognosis for what treatment you need to reach maximum medical improvement. It is also important to make sure you consider any permanent injuries you may suffer from your injury, in order for you to be fairly compensated. Often, settling your claim too quickly without obtaining legal advice can leave you without fair compensation. We will be glad to assist you here at Farmer & Morris Law!
When the at-fault party does not have liability insurance in a car wreck case, in many cases you can still pursue a claim with your own vehicle insurance through your uninsured motorist coverage or even sue the at-fault party directly. Making a claim with your own uninsured coverage will not cause your premiums to increase. Do not give up just because the at-fault party did not have insurance – call us at Farmer & Morris Law today to see what options you may have!
If you suffer an injury due to someone else’s negligence and you need medical treatment, there are times when you should turn your bills over to your own health insurance. However, depending on the nature of your health insurance, your insurance provider may be entitled to subrogation, to be paid back after you settle your injury case! Therefore, it is very important for you to consult with an attorney who can assess your situation to see what the best outcome will be for you to be fairly compensated and also have your medical providers paid.
