The Right (and Wrong) Reasons to Get Medical Treatment After An Accident

If you’re hurt in an accident, the most obvious course of action is to get medical treatment. But getting treatment after an accident has implications that go beyond just your physical health. People get pressure from their attorney to get treatment, even though their attorney may not disclose that often medical treatment from an accident isn’t covered by health insurance, and your legal settlement may depend on the treatment you get.

FAQ

What should I do if I get in a motorcycle accident in District of Columbia?

After a motorcycle accident, it's important that you check for injuries and receive the necessary medical help. Call the police so they can write an official accident report and facilitate the exchange of driver's licenses and insurance information between you and the person responsible for the accident. If you are able, you might want to take pictures of the point of contact, vehicle damage, road signs, and other relevant records. This information can be useful for your motorcycle accident attorney during the claims process.

How much will my motorcycle accident in District of Columbia settle for?

It's probably not the answer you want to hear, but it depends. And it often depends on factors that you don't know initially such as how much insurance the person who caused the accident has. Other factors include which state the accident happened in, how clearly the accident wasn't your fault, your injuries and medical treatment, your lost income, and more. Evaluating how much your case is worth is what a good lawyer will help you do and what a lawyer from our network will do if we work together.

Is hiring a motorcycle accident lawyer in District of Columbia necessary?

You are not required by law to hire a motorcycle accident lawyer in District of Columbia. You always have the option to pursue it on your own. That said, these crashes can often result in serious property damage, injuries, and other collateral damage. In many cases, you'll have the best chance of securing fair compensation with an experienced District of Columbia motorcycle accident lawyer who's fluent in industry standards, the negotiation process, and the specifics of your case.

How much does a motorcycle accident lawyer in District of Columbia cost through Mighty?

If your case settles directly, your lawyers take a pre-suit fee of 33% or less of the final settlement. Cases requiring a lawsuit have a post-suit fee of 40% or less. In either situation, you'll only pay if you win, and in most cases your rate will be 10% less than the industry average because District of Columbia motorcycle accident lawyers are here to lessen your financial burden—not add to it.

What does the process look like to get started filing my claim?

Mighty starts by talking to you for free. You'll fill out a simple form online or call us. If our legal team can be of help, we'll send you a retainer agreement that lays out the terms of our engagement in simple terms. Most importantly, you'll only have to pay if you win your case. Once you're officially a client, we'll assign you a case manager.

That case manager will be your point person and help you with everything from making sure you have access to medical care to help with collecting documents, including medical bills, insurance information, photo evidence, and more. Our network of District of Columbia motorcycle accident lawyers will then assemble a claim with those records and begin negotiations with the insurance company. Most cases reach a settlement, but in some instances, your lawyer may need to file a lawsuit against the defendant's insurance company to get the compensation you deserve.

How long will it take to investigate a motorcycle accident claim in District of Columbia?

The length of time it takes to investigate a motorcycle accident in District of Columbia varies greatly and depends on the details of the case. Factors that could slow your case down include disputes about who is at fault, a slow negotiation process, and the filing of a lawsuit. Our team of motorcycle accident attorneys in District of Columbia will work hard to help you reach a satisfactory outcome as swiftly as possible.

What happens once my motorcycle accident case is settled?

Once you've agreed to a settlement, your District of Columbia motorcycle crash attorney will give you a “settlement statement” which shows the total settlement and all of the expenses that come out of your settlement before you're paid. You'll sign that and a release to officially move forward with your settlement. Those expenses, or bills, get paid once the settlement check is received from the insurance company. This typically includes anyone who provided services to you during your case such as your lawyer, doctors, and more. You'll get the amount that's left after all of these bills are paid which is sometimes called the net settlement. It typically takes a few weeks to a few months to get the check from the insurance company, pay all of the expenses, and disburse it to you.
