“If a person is seriously injured—or thinks they may be seriously injured—if they wait, they can negatively affect any potential claim they have. There are a few ways an attorney can help. There might be cameras [at the scene of the accident] that may not remain there, or a video where someone’s had a bad fall. These videos sometimes disappear, too, unless an attorney is there.”

Key Takeaways From David Klibaner:

Exercise your available options when it comes to paying medical bills.

The first option an injured person should utilize, says Klibaner, is to use their own health insurance. Medical providers will sometimes urge patients to simply wait for a settlement, and then the medical provider will take the payments out of that settlement. However, says Klibaner, payments coming out of settlements can be much higher than using personal insurance.

Some businesses will also have medical pay insurance, says Klibaner, but it is often low and may not be used for you if the business deems that your injury is not serious enough to warrant payment. Regardless of which option you end up taking, it is always best to hire an attorney to help guide you through the system. They may be aware of new or different options than the ones you were considering, and they can help you obtain the necessary payments for your injuries and potential losses.

Understand what to do—and what your attorney can do—if you are involved in an accident and the other driver is underinsured or not insured at all.

Sometimes, says Klibaner, if you are in an accident with an underinsured or uninsured driver, your car insurance will have coverage specifically for these types of collisions. This can help you out in a situation where you may not be able to rely on another party to cover injury or car damage fees. You can basically use this policy to file a claim against your own insurance company to obtain the compensation that is not covered by the other driver’s insurers.

However, says Klibaner, some insurance companies reject this coverage or type of claim to avoid paying out costs themselves. In addition, even if coverage is provided by the other driver’s insurance, you may be contacted by them if they’re trying to gather information that may reduce or cancel out your claim. This is where an attorney has enormous benefits.

Let your attorney deal with insurance companies on your behalf.

If you are attempting to recover compensation to cover injury or loss, but find yourself hitting obstacles, an attorney is a great resource. An experienced attorney will know how to negotiate with insurance companies and fight for compensation you are owed if your claim is rejected. Additionally, your attorney is available to speak for you if you run into a situation where an insurance company representative is attempting to get you to give them information that may negatively impact your claim and your recovery.

In this way, a personal injury attorney can help you smoothly navigate potential missteps, and offer you support in areas where you are unsure of what to say or do. Because every personal injury case varies, it is always wise to hire somebody who can handle both complicated commonalities and unexpected roadblocks—and clear the way to your path to recovery.
