Who Pays For Medical Bills After a Car Accident?

August 10th, 2018

Injuries resulting from a car accident can lead to medical expenses. In a situation where the injuries are serious and require extensive treatment, it’s important to know how your medical bills are going to be paid. The following may help you understand how your medical bills will be covered if you have been injured in a car accident in New York.

Car insurance: If you were a resident of a “no-fault” state at the time of the accident, your own car insurance will primarily be responsible for your medical bills, regardless of who is at fault in the accident. You can make a “no-fault” injury claim under Personal Injury Protection coverage. However, there is a limit to what your own car insurance company will pay and the limit may differ from state to state. If your medical bills exceed your state’s “no-fault” limit, you are responsible for paying. You must file an application for “no-fault” benefits with your insurance company within 30 days of an accident.

The “no fault” benefits may cover the following necessary medical expenses:

  • Emergency medical treatment
  • Diagnosis and initial medical care
  • X-rays, MRIs and other tests
  • Surgery
  • Nursing services
  • Prosthetic devices
  • Prescription medications
  • Therapy and rehabilitation
  • Any other professional medical services provided

If your accident occurred in a state that does not have no-fault insurance, you will generally be responsible for paying your medical bills.

Med Pay: Med Pay pays for medical bills of drivers or passengers injured in a car accident. It covers medical bills including hospital visits, doctor visits, physical therapy sessions, etc. After your medical bills exceed the policy limits, you will be responsible for paying.

Medicare or Medicaid: Medicare or Medicaid, just like Med Pay, also cover medical bills to the extent the regulations allow and upon exhaustion of no-fault and private health coverage benefits. It is important to note that Medicare does not reimburse paid bills. They will pay your medical bills, but not reimburse you for bills that have already been paid.

If you or a loved one has suffered injuries as the result of a car accident, you may be entitled to compensation. At Dervishi Law Group, P.C., our car accident attorneys understand how to effectively represent persons who have been injured. Our team has the knowledge and resources necessary to obtain the compensation you deserve. To speak to our car accident lawyers, call 917-300-0797 or 718-619-4525.

How to Choose the Right Car Accident Lawyer

August 2nd, 2018

Pursuing a car accident claim can be challenging. Things could become worst if your lawyer is not equipped to pursue the compensation you are entitled to. Hiring the right car accident lawyer is important to ensure a successful case. Choosing the right car accident lawyer can save you time and unnecessary stress.

Here are some tips to help you choose the right car accident lawyer:

Consider referrals: Referrals are one of the best ways to find a car accident lawyer. You can get recommendations from friends and family who have already used the services of a lawyer at an earlier date. These recommendations can help you narrow down your list of choices.

Consider the lawyer’s experience: Choose a lawyer who has sufficient experience and one who understands the court system. Find out how long the lawyer has been in practice. An experienced lawyer will know the ins and outs of the law and the procedures and protocol for negotiating and settling a car accident case.

Consider the lawyer’s success rate: Find out the success rate of the lawyer for cases similar to yours. If he or she has a strong record of winning cases like yours, it shows that they have experience and exemplary skills. The lawyer’s success rate can play an important role in how your case is handled.

Consider the lawyer’s reputation: A lawyer’s reputation among their colleagues in the court system and among insurance adjusters is critically important when it comes to the success of your claim. Choose someone with a good reputation.

Consider the lawyer’s available resources: To ensure a good settlement, consider a lawyer who is well-established, well-staffed and well-financed. A car accident case requires using forensic tools, conducting safety analyses and developing a network of medical and economic experts to calculate damages. Without these resources, your case may not be well-prepared and you could potentially lose.

Tips to Preserving Your Rights to Obtain Compensation After a Car Accident

August 1st, 2018

If you were involved in a car accident due to someone else’s carelessness or negligence, you have the right to obtain compensation for your injuries and damages. Here are some tips for preserving your rights to obtain compensation after a car accident:

Document the accident scene: If possible, document as much as you can about the accident scene immediately after the accident. Strong evidence is the key to receiving fair compensation.

Talk to witnesses: If there were any witnesses and if you are able to talk with them, get their contact information. Ask them questions related to the accident and if they would be able to make written or verbal statements. The more information you obtain from the witnesses, the stronger your claim will be.

Call the police: Even if you had a minor injury, call the police. A police report will prove the authenticity of your accident, provide documentation of the accident scene and will often include evidence of fault.

Photograph the scene: If possible, take photographs of the accident scene, any damages to your vehicle or the other party’s vehicle, and any obvious injuries you have sustained. Also, take pictures of the traffic lights, signs or road if any of these conditions contributed to the accident.

Seek immediate medical attention: Treatment records, medical bills and doctor’s notes are strong evidence of the injuries you have sustained and the financial damage the accident has caused. A complete set of medical records, including medical bills, will be helpful when claiming compensation for the injuries incurred.

Get repair estimates for property damage: Collect repair estimates for any damage done to your car. Most insurance adjusters will demand an inspection of the damage to your car. If you already have the estimates, you will be able to make a strong argument for the repairs you need and the associated costs.

Hire a lawyer: If you feel the insurance company is deliberately delaying or blocking payment of your claim, or if their estimation is unfair, contact an experienced car accident lawyer. Your lawyer will fight for your rights and make sure that you are fairly compensated for your injuries and other damages.

If you have suffered injuries in a car accident, you may have an injury claim. It is crucial that you are represented by a dedicated and experienced car accident lawyer to help you through the legal process. At Dervishi Law Group, P.C., we have years of experience in dealing with car accident personal injury cases. Let our car accident lawyers handle your case and guide you through the legal process.

Proving a Slip and Fall Injury Case

July 26th, 2018

If you have suffered injuries in slip and fall accident, you may be eligible to file an injury claim against the owner of that property. However, establishing the property owner’s liability can be challenging.

Although a property owner is required to keep his or her property in a reasonably safe condition, this does not necessarily mean that whoever slips and falls on the property can hold the owner liable. To hold a property owner liable, you must prove that:

  • He or she should have known about the dangerous condition on their property and should have fixed it.
  • He or she knew about the dangerous condition but did not fix it.
  • He or she intentionally caused the dangerous condition.

PROVING THE PROPERTY OWNER’S NEGLIGENCE

To claim that a property owner was negligent, you must be able to prove that he or she failed to act as a reasonably prudent person would have acted under similar circumstances. When trying to assess whether the property owner acted reasonably, consider the following:

  • Did the hazardous condition exist long enough for a reasonable property owner to eliminate it?
  • Did the property owner have a policy of routinely checking for potential hazards? If so, was the procedure followed before the accident?
  • Was the hazardous condition intentionally created? Was there any justification for creating the hazard?
  • Could the accident have been prevented by taking measures such as relocating the hazard, placing adequate warning signage in the area or preventing access to the area?

It is common for a property owner to argue that the victim is partially responsible for the injuries. This kind of argument is made under the theories of “comparative negligence” and “contributory negligence.” If your state is guided by the contributory negligence theory and you are found to bear any degree of responsibility for the accident, you may be barred from collecting any damages at all. Similarly, if your state is guided by the comparative negligence theory, and you are found to have equally contributed to the accident, your damages will be reduced by a percentage equal to your share of the liability.

Our Experienced Slip and Fall Lawyers Can Help You
