- What should I sign for my health care provider? - Don't sign anything that looks like it allows your doctor, hospital or chiropractor to be entitled to your benefits. Most people who have auto insurance in Texas have a coverage known as Personal Injury Protection or PIP. This coverage pays a fixed sum in medical bills and lost wages if you are injured in an auto crash. You should control how this money is paid. You may need to use it for your own benefit as opposed to applying it immediately to medical bills for which you may have some other coverage.
- What is my personal injury claim worth? - No one's exact claim can be determined before a settlement is agreed on by both parties. You should avoid any attorneys who make promises regarding how much they can recover for you in compensation. Medical bills can be calculated, but factors such as emotional damages or pain and suffering are difficult to evaluate.
- What is contributory negligence? - Your actions may have contributed to the accident and the injuries you sustained. In some cases, contributory negligence on the part of the injured party can reduce the amount of the settlement award. When you have an attorney by your side, you can better defend yourself from being blamed for part of the accident.
