THINGS TO REMEMBER

  • Inform our office of any change of address, telephone number or employment.
  • If your vehicle was damaged, take pictures before you get it repaired, and get two estimates from different body shops.
  • Save your medicine receipts, medical devices such as casts or crutches, and medical records.
  • Give us videos or pictures of the accident scene or accident, if available.
  • Tell us about any changes in your job, job duties, or salary.
  • Be sure to save all receipts for any expenses you incurred as a result of your accident.
  • Inform us of anything that you think has a bearing on your case, including extensive medical treatment, hospitalization, or any new doctors that you may have been referred to.

WHAT NOT TO DO

  • Do not give written or recorded statements to anyone concerning your accident or injuries.
  • Do not fail to tell your doctor about prior injuries or accidents.
  • Do not change your home address, phone number, or employment without notifying us.
  • Do not miss going to the doctor if you are in pain.
  • Do not discuss your case with anyone other than your attorney or your doctor.
  • Do not disregard your doctor’s orders.

FOLLOW YOUR DOCTOR’S ADVICE

Be sure to do what your doctor tells you. There is no good reason or excuse to miss a doctor’s appointment without calling to reschedule. By missing a doctor’s appointment, you are telling the doctor and the insurance company that you are not hurt and that your injuries do not matter. Our job is to recover for you for the pain and suffering that can be proven. Not going to the doctor is a good way to show that you are not hurt and that you don’t need to get better. If you do not care, the doctor may not care. It is very important for you to work hard to get well and to go to all of your appointments. If you are in pain and do not see a doctor, the insurance company or the jury may not believe that you are in pain. Each time that you go to the doctor and report that you are still having pain, your doctor makes an entry in his records. It is important for your doctor to have recent information on your condition. Some clients get discouraged and do not see their doctor. This may hurt your claim. It is important that your doctor knows how you feel.

OUR PROCESS

What To Sign

All necessary information from employers, schools, or other persons will be obtained by us. You should not sign anything until you check with us first.

Medical Payments

While your case is pending against the insurance company of the person that caused your injuries, we try to arrange to have your medical bills paid by your own insurance company. This could be from the medical payments provision of your own automobile insurance policy or your own health insurance policy, or, if applicable, worker’s compensation insurance. Please be sure that all medical bills that relate to your injury are sent to our office, so that we may forward them to the appropriate insurance company.

Keep Detailed Record

Please be sure to keep records of the following:

  • Lost work time and wages.
  • Other expenses resulting from your injuries, e.g., transportation, home care, etc.
  • Pain and suffering.
  • Your physical limitations. A small notebook of your day to day changes may help.

It is important to make your entries on an ongoing basis. A summary at the end of each month will not be as helpful. Copies of checks and receipts of payment, as well as the above records, will be useful when you may be asked by the insurance company or an attorney to recall your pain, physical disabilities, and any out-of-pocket expenses, including medication.

Medical Liens

Sometimes our clients are involved in an accident where there is no source of medical payments, insurance, worker’s compensation or private health insurance. In such cases, your doctor will expect to be paid by you at the conclusion of the case. Often they will require you to agree, in writing, to have us pay them directly from the proceeds you receive. We sometimes issue letters of protection to the doctors who will be paid if we obtain a settlement. State laws sometimes permit health care providers to file a “lien” which must be paid out of the proceeds of your case. If your doctor asks you to sign what is often called a “lien letter,” be sure to contact our office. In some cases, it may not be appropriate for you to sign such an agreement.

Subrogation

If an insurance company pays some of your medical or other expenses arising from your injury, the law provides “subrogation” which means that the insurance company stands “in your shoes” and can recover from the responsible party. When this is the case, they usually are required to pay their proportionate share of the attorney’s fee and costs in connection with the recovery.

FAQ’S

Why Does My Case Take So Long?

We cannot fully state your claim until after your doctors have given us a report stating exactly what your medical condition is and what they expect it to be in the future; in other words, until you have reached “maximum medical improvement.” Many times doctors are very slow to make these findings. We may even, on occasion, ask you to contact your doctor to speed up this report. If we try to settle your case before your medical condition has stabilized, you may lose money that you are entitled to for a condition that did not show up until after your case settled.

It is important to know that your case will not be settled until the damages have been determined and all investigations to determine who is liable have been completed. It generally takes several months to gather the necessary information. If a trial becomes necessary, it can take several years to complete a case. One of the most difficult requests we make is for you to have patience. We will work as hard and fast as possible to maximize your recovery.

What is the Value of My Case?

It is impossible for us to tell you immediately how much money, if any, you will recover in connection with your case. There is no formula and each case is different. In cases of serious bodily injury, the ultimate recovery is often related to the amount of insurance coverage available, as well as the nature, extent, and duration of your injuries, along with an assessment of liability. As your attorney, we at the Law Office of Carlos G. Galliani, P.C. feel that it is our primary duty to obtain an amount of money that will fairly and justly compensate you for your injuries. We will make every effort to do this by locating all sources of money. In general, most states allow recovery of damages for the following elements of damage:

  • The nature and extent of the injury, including whether the injury is permanent, or the amount of disability.
  • Medical expenses, both past and reasonably certain to be incurred in the future.
  • Lost wages, past and future, and loss of capacity to earn a living.
  • Pain and suffering, past and future.
  • Property including your motor vehicle and other items of personal property.
  • Loss of consortium for your spouse, past and future.
