Personal Injury FAQs

The hours and days after a personal injury or the wrongful death of a loved one can be incredibly important, both for your well being and your ability to recover money from the guilty party.  

First, make sure not to underestimate your injuries or avoid seeing a medical provider. Trying to “tough it out” is never a good idea, and this could lead to additional injuries which might have been prevented. Also, putting off seeing a medical provider, regardless of the reason, can make a juror question your injuries during a trial.

Second, do not discuss the details of the the accident with anyone except your medical providers, police, and your personal injury attorney. Do not speak with anyone from insurance company of the person or company that caused the accident. Under no circumstance should you give a recorded statement. If you were hurt in an accident at work and are asked to prepare a statement regarding the incident, provide only a general overview of what happened and do not try to diagnose what injuries you suffered, as you are not a doctor.

Third, attempt to gather evidence before it disappears. If possible, use your cell phone to take videos and pictures of the accident scene and your injuries, if visible. Likewise, if possible, try to get the contact information of all witnesses to the accident, and make notes of anything they told you or that you overheard them saying. 

Most importantly, you want to hire an experience personal injury attorney as quickly as possible, so that additional steps can be taken to obtain evidence and protect your rights to pursue a personal injury claim or wrongful death case.  

Contact our office in St. Louis, Missouri, or Belleville, Illinois, for a free consultation with a personal injury lawyer. 

How you pay your medical bills after a personal injury accident depends on your specific situation, and this issue should be thoroughly discussed with your personal injury attorney. Options include paying with your own health insurance, having the at-fault party or their liability insurer pay, or having your employer pay (if you were injured at work). In addition, many doctors and other medical providers will agree to wait for their bills to be paid until you have recovered money from your injury claim against the at-fault party.  

As a rule, it is extraordinarily uncommon for an insurance company to make a fair settlement offer on a personal injury or wrongful death claim if you are not represented by an experienced personal injury lawyer. The insurance company deals with cases like yours everyday, while you, if you’re lucky, have never before suffered a personal injury or have a loved one killed. Given this imbalance in experience and knowledge, coupled with the insurance company’s goal to make as much money as possible, a low-ball settlement offer is almost a certainty.  

In some cases a personal injury victim or the family of a wrongful death victim, due to the results of the accident and resulting damages, feels that they have to accept an insurance company’s settlement offer because they can’t afford not to. We cannot stress enough the importance of speaking with an experienced personal injury lawyer, either at Wayfinder Law or elsewhere, before accepting any settlement offer.

This is one of the most difficult and troubling problems that people who suffer serious injuries face following their trauma, and there is no easy solution. Please contact us so you can speak with a personal injury attorney about this very important issue. 

After suffering a personal injury, your are entitled to recover money from the at-fault party for past and future pain & suffering, loss of a normal life, disfigurement, past and future medical bills, and past and future lost wages, among other things. In certain cases, you may recover punitive damages against the party that caused the accident. Punitive damages can be awarded in cases where the at-fault party’s behavior was intentional, willful and wanton, or reckless, and such damages are designed to punish such behavior and deter similar future behavior.  

If your family member was killed, it you may be entitled to recover money for medical bills, burial expenses, lost future income, loss of companionship, and loss of services. It is also possible that you could recovery money for the pain and suffering your family member suffered before their death.

In the end, your personal injury claim or wrongful death case is worth what you and the guilty party (or their insurance co.) agree that it is worth, and a settlement agreement is reached. If no agreement can be reached, a judge or jury will decide at trial how much the case is worth.  

While it is impossible to precisely predict the value of any personal injury or wrongful death case or lawsuit before any settlement or trial judgment occurs, a good estimate can be made. Contact our St. Louis, Missouri, or Belleville, Illinois, personal injury law office to get a free, confidential consultation and meeting. The value of your case can be assessed at this meeting. 

If the at-fault party does not make a fair settlement offer, a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit will need to be filed. A lawsuit can last from a few months to a few years or more. Generally, most cases are resolved within one or two years. Things that can extend the length of an injury lawsuit include ongoing medical treatment, extensive legal arguments between the parties, uncooperative witnesses, unreasonable parties, and appeals, among other things.  

In all likelihood, no. Statistics show that approximately 90 – 95% of cases are resolved by settlement or other means prior to trial. However, we will work on your personal injury or wrongful death case with the expectation that it will go to trial, and we will not settle your case without your approval. Only by planning to take your case to trial can we maximize the settlement value of your injury or wrongful death case; if a reasonable settlement offer is not made, we will recommend going to trial.   

No. You pay nothing unless your Wayfinder Law personal injury attorney recovers money on your behalf. Once we recover money for you, we receive a portion of the money as our fee.  The court costs and litigation expenses we paid during your case are also be reimbursed from the amount recovered.  

If you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid.

Don't Get Taken Advantage Of

Sometimes the guilty party (or their insurance company) will recognize the pain & damages caused & make a fair settlement offer to a personal injury victim or the family of a wrongful death victim who is not represented by an attorney. However, this is very rare. We strongly recommend that you do not sign anything or accept any settlement offer before you speak with us or another personal injury attorney. We also recommend:

  • Not giving a recorded statement to the guilty party’s insurer
  • Not settling your injury claim until you have fully healed
  • Not letting the insurance adjuster bully you into a settlement
  • Finding out the true value of your claim

Typically, guilty parties (or their insurance companies) do all they can to pay as little as possible to make your personal injury or wrongful death claim go away. We know this process, & we understand what is right. We promise to fight for you as long as it takes to get you a fair recovery, whether that be through a settlement or a trial.  

Let us help you.
