The aftermath of a personal injury can take months or even years to address all the issues that are associated with sustaining one or more injuries. You have to receive medical care, which quickly racks up substantial bills. The extent of your injuries might be severe enough to prevent you from working, which means you do not have any income coming in to pay off rapidly increasing debts. On top of money and healthcare issues, your insurance company has denied your claim for financial assistance and you discover another party committed an act of negligence that caused your injuries.
There is a lot on your plate that one of the experienced personal injury attorneys at Morgan and Morgan can help clear.
One of the most important benefits of hiring a state-licensed personal injury lawyer is to deal with your insurance company and file a civil lawsuit that seeks monetary damages for the negligence committed by another party. The personal injury lawyer that you work with from Morgan and Morgan will try to negotiate a settlement with your insurance company and if needed, do the same with the attorney representing the defendant during a civil lawsuit.
After your personal injury attorney reaches a settlement, you might expect immediate payment. However, receiving the money owed to you from a legal settlement requires following several steps that prolong the payment process. If you want to know the answer to the question, “How long after a settlement do I get paid,” the answer is it depends on the complexity of your case and the professional skill level of your legal counsel.
At Morgan and Morgan, we have more than 30 years of experience negotiating favorable settlements for our clients. Our team of personal injury lawyers also has recovered more than $14 billion in the monetary damages awarded by judges presiding over civil trials. If your highly-rated personal injury attorney from Morgan and Morgan cannot reach an agreement with your insurance company and/or another party that committed one or more acts of negligence, your legal counsel will not hesitate to take legal action to recover your financial losses.
