Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if I have a personal injury case?
You must have suffered an injury to your person or property. You should consider whether your injury was someone else’s fault. It is not always necessary to have a physical injury to bring a personal injury lawsuit. We find victims injured in vehicle collisions are best served when they act immediately to get legal help. The point of filing a lawsuit is to bring some level of improvement to the injured party and their family, not merely to punish the opposing party or compensate your attorney.
How much does it cost to hire a personal injury attorney?
Mancini Law Group P.C. offers free consultations and you will not be charged unless we win your personal injury claim. Upon the successful resolution of your claim, a predetermined percent will be deducted from your judgment or settlement amount. This percentage covers the cost of litigation and your attorney’s compensation. Contact us today for a more detailed assessment of your potential claim.
Are my medical bills paid in an injury settlement?
Yes, payment or reimbursement of medical bills will be a component of any settlement that in an injury-related insurance claim or lawsuit. The plaintiff and or claimant will be compensated for all medical treatment necessitated by the accident including reimbursement for medical bills already paid, and a plan for payment of all future necessary medical treatment.
Also, when it comes to getting compensation for medical bills that have already been paid, if your provider already paid some or all of the bills that you later get compensated, your health insurance provider may have a lien on part of your settlement.
Should I get money for “pain and suffering” in my settlement?
If you were injured in an accident, and you were not at fault, you may receive some amount of money for your pain based on the impact the injury has had on your daily life. In accidents with minor, short-term injuries, it may be a small “token” amount. When injuries are more serious, painful, and/or long-lasting, the settlement of the pain and suffering portion will increase.
