Who Pays Out a Personal Injury Claim?

Have you been injured in an auto collision that was not your fault? Have you been injured on someone else’s property because of unsafe conditions? Have you been seriously hurt by a product or service rendered? You may be eligible for financial compensation. Millions of people every year are involved in personal injury cases that disrupt their lives and leave them in need of medical attention. However, people often wonder who is responsible for the costs of their medical attention and pain and suffering? 

Van Law Firm strives to help personal injury victims with the personal injury process so that they may make a full recovery and receive full financial compensation for their injuries. In this article we will be explaining who is responsible for paying out your personal injury claim. 

Personal Injury Claims

Personal injury claims arise from injuries caused by the negligence of another individual or organization. The negligence could stem from a car crash caused by the negligence of another driver, a product, a service, or from unsafe premise conditions. If you or a loved one have suffered serious injuries from any one of these factors, you could be eligible for monetary compensation. 

State law generally dictates the time limit you have to file a personal injury claim in state court. From the date of the incident, you generally have two years to file your case in Nevada and California civil court systems, three years in Washington, and four years in Utah. To protect the interests of minors involved in personal injury incidents, Nevada law does not impose the two year time limit until the minor reaches the age of eighteen. The law that imposes these time limits is known as the “statute of limitations.” Please ensure that you contact our office before your statute of limitations on your personal injury claim is passed. 

Who Will Pay For My Injury Claim?

The individual or organization that is responsible for your injuries should have insurance. The responsibility of insurance companies is to hedge the risk of financial losses on behalf of their client. After you treat your injuries, the insurance company of the responsible individual should cover the costs of your medical treatment, in addition to any and all pain and suffering. However, in the case that the cost of your injuries exceeds that of the responsible party’s insurance policy or if they do not have insurance at all, you may be able to use your own insurance to cover the costs of your injuries and medical attention. Van Law Firm’s experienced team of attorneys will help you through this entire process to communicate with the opposing party’s insurance company as well as your insurance company to protect your interests and retrieve full compensation for you.
