In cases involving personal injuries and accidents, determining what your claim is worth is more than just adding up medical bills and damages to property. It is important to take into consideration the impact your injury could have on your life in the future, psychically, emotionally, and financially. When determining what your injury claim may be worth, it is important consider the following factors:

  • The potential for suffering chronic conditions, with could result in periodic relapses and require ongoing treatment;
  • The impacts health problems could have now and in the future on your ability to participate in activities and do the things you enjoy;
  • The potential for permanent scarring or disfigurement; and
  • Lasting disabilities that could affect your ability to work in your chosen field and could impact your earning potential and future savings.

All of these things and more need to be carefully considered when calculating the total amount your personal injury claim may be worth. Unfortunately, these are often the type of expenses that are either left out or underestimated when dealing with insurance companies. To get a truly accurate estimate of what your claim is worth is to contact our experienced Georgia personal injury attorneys for a free case review.

In the aftermath of an accident, injured victims often mistakenly believe that the insurance company is on their side and will help them to get the amount of compensation they deserve. Unfortunately, this is not the case. The insurer is operating a business, and like any business, their bottom line is making money. In order to accomplish this, companies often limit administrative costs by limiting the amount of time and effort spent on each claim, with the result being that offers to settle your claim may be far less than what you expected or what your case is actually worth. According to the Georgia Office of Insurance, avoid signing an insurance release accepting settlement of your accident claim before doing the following:

  • Conducting your own investigation into the costs associated with replacing or repairing any property damaged in the accident;
  • Speaking with your doctor about the prognosis for your injuries, any future treatments you may require, and any lasting effects or disabilities you may suffer;
  • Keeping a written record of all bills and statements you have received, as well as all correspondence you have had with the company and its representatives; and
  • Consulting with a legal professional before signing a release accepting a settlement amount.

You have one chance to get the compensation you need to recover from your injuries. It pays to have our experienced personal injury attorneys working on your behalf and negotiating with the insurance company to ensure you get the maximum amount you deserve.

In the aftermath of an accidental injury, it does not take long for medical bills to come flooding in. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may be entitled to compensation for these bills and other costs associated with your injuries. How do you manage these medical costs while waiting for your case to settle? You can always elect to have your bills paid through your own private insurance. If you do this, you are still free to receive compensation for these costs through your insurance claim or through a personal injury lawsuit. Your other option is to have our attorneys file a letter of protection on your behalf with your medical providers. This letter lets them know that you are involved in a lawsuit, and assures creditors that they will be paid through the proceeds of your suit or claim.

While most accident victims want to get the maximum amount of compensation for their injuries, many have concerns about actually taking their cases to court. According to statistics from Black’s Law Dictionary, in approximately 95 percent of personal injury cases, the injured party receives a settlement without ever having to step foot in a courtroom. A major reason that insurance companies are willing to settle is that a court proceeding will likely result in increased costs, such as court fees and legal expenses.

Any money saved by offering you less than what your claim is worth is cancelled out by these costs. Additional motivation for at-fault parties to settle is that if a claim amount cannot be agreed upon and the case goes to trial, a judge will then set the amount, which is again likely to involve additional costs, thereby eliminating any savings for the insurer or at fault party.

People get hurt on the job every day, but not all of them were using drugs when it happened. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, more than 2.8 million people were injured while on the job. Thankfully, most people who are hurt at work aren’t seriously injured. They get medical treatment and are back to work in a few weeks. Sadly, there are others who suffer very serious injuries.

They need long-term medical treatment and are out of work for months or even a year. It’s one thing if you’re receiving workers’ comp benefits. However, Carrollton workers comp attorneys meet with workers all the time who are upset that their claim was denied. Whether or not your attorney can help get benefits for you depends on why your claim was denied.

When you get hurt at work, your employer is going to ask you to submit to a drug test. Employers have the right to do this. If your injury or accident was the result of your being intoxicated, then your company isn’t going to want their insurance to pay out any benefits. If you refuse the test, your claim will be denied. If you take the test and it’s positive for drugs or alcohol, there’s a good chance your claim will be denied as well. Depending on the circumstances, your Carrollton workers comp attorney may be able to help.

Every Company Has Its Own Drug and Alcohol Policy

When you get hired at a new company, they give you a copy of the employee handbook. Of course, when people are at orientation, they rarely take the time to read the policies inside the handbook. One of these policies is likely a drug and alcohol policy. In addition to issuing penalties for being caught using or being under the influence of drugs or alcohol, there is almost always a policy about workplace accidents.

Almost every business makes it very clear from the outset that any accident or injury suffered while under the influence of either substance will not be covered by worker’s compensation. Make sure you bring a copy of this policy when you meet with your Carrollton workers comp attorney.

Your Workers Comp Claim Will Probably Be Denied

Whether you test positive for drugs or not, if you appear to be high or drunk at the time of your workplace injury, your workers’ comp claim will be denied. No company is going to want to pay benefits out to someone who was under the influence when they got hurt. When your manager fills out their incident form, they will make a notation of whether they think you’re impaired. They’ll also make sure you take a drug test. If it comes back positive, they’ll advise the insurance company to deny your claim.

What Can a Carrollton Workers Comp Attorney Do to Help?

If your claim is denied due to drugs or alcohol, your Carrollton workers comp attorney has a few options. First, they can prove that the drug was legally prescribed to you. If this is the case, your claim may be approved.

The other option they have is to prove that the accident had nothing to do with your being under the influence. For example, if the equipment you were using malfunctioned or was defective, it may help your case. Of course, there’s no guarantee that they’ll approve your claim. You may still have to file a lawsuit against your employer.

Rehab May Be an Option

Some employers have special policies for workers who have an addiction problem. They may allow you to take time off to go to rehab. However, this is usually an option when there is no accident or injury involved. If you hide your addiction from your employer, they will likely still deny your claim. Or they may approve medical treatment from your accident but deny replacement wages. If this is the case, your Carrollton workers comp attorney will fight to get your benefits approved.

Call and Discuss Your Case with an Experienced Carrollton Workers’ Comp Attorney

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, more than 2.8 million people were injured while on the job. Many workers’ comp claims are denied.

Finding out that your workers’ comp claim was denied is frustrating. Even if it was due to your own actions (such as taking drugs while you’re on the clock) it doesn’t make it any easier to swallow. Without benefits, you may not be able to get the medical care you need. You’ll also have no way to pay your bills. That’s why it’s important that you consult with an experienced Carrollton workers comp attorney immediately after your accident.
