A serious injury from an accident is a traumatic experience which impacts every aspect of your life: your health, your finances and your family. You will likely have many questions: Who is responsible? Who will pay my medical bills and time missed from work? How will I obtain money from the at-fault person? At Gurovich Law Group, an experienced Attorney will answer these questions.
No one should have to pay the bills for an accident that wasn’t their fault. You may able to force the at-fault person to pay you for your injury, but how can you be sure that it’s a fair settlement? There may be other people responsible, but how can you be sure? Legal representation is the only way to help ensure that your case is handled properly.
Do I have a personal injury case?
Whether or not you have a case depends on many factors. First and foremost, is your injury the fault of someone else’s negligence? If so, what is the extent of your injuries? If you can prove that your injuries are someone else’s fault, you probably have a case where an injury lawyer can help you.
The value of your case depends on many factors, but most importantly it depends on the severity of your injury and whether or not there is insurance coverage you can collect from. Other factors include the amount of your medical bills, the specific conduct of the at fault party, and the permanency of your injury.
Who pays my medical bills?
When you are injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, you may incur significant medical bills. How do these
bills get paid? Generally, when you hire a lawyer, your medical providers will charge you for their services but not expect to be paid until the case settles or a verdict is obtained in court. Upon settlement or a verdict, your lawyer will assist you in paying all of your medical bills out of the settlement or verdict.
How much does a personal injury lawyer cost?
Gurovich Law Group’s personal injury lawyers are paid on a contingency basis. This means that you do not pay your lawyer before they work on your case, and your lawyer will only be paid if you win your case. Your lawyer will not expect to be paid until a settlement or verdict is reached. Nearly every personal injury lawyer in California charges 33% of whatever they can recover in your case. (If a recovery is obtained, additional costs for filing fees and other legal costs may be in addition to the contingency fee.)
