What Type of Financial Compensation Can I Get by Filing a Claim?
As a plaintiff, you stand to be reimbursed for your out-of-pocket expenses, such as medical bills and property damage. But compensation usually does not stop there for moderate to serious injuries. A personal injury claim will seek full compensation for all of your medical costs, pain and suffering, lost wages, lost earning ability, emotional distress, loss of joy of life, and more.
For victims with high medical bills, we will do everything in our power to limit clawback—the practice health insurance companies use to take back money won in a settlement or lawsuit verdict to cover their costs. For example, a severely injured pedestrian’s hospital bills alone might amount to $250,000, while their full damages, including pain and suffering, amount to $750,000. This would not be out of the question for a serious pedestrian injury case. If the at-fault party’s insurance policy is capped at $400,000, and plaintiff’s UM policy is $100,000, and there is no way to obtain additional compensation, the plaintiff’s take-home (after their lawyer’s 30 percent contingency fee) of the $500,000 will be $350,000. Here is where clawback really impacts the plaintiff: if the plaintiff’s health insurance company claws back the full sum of $250,000 in medical bills, the plaintiff will be left with only $100,000—not nearly as much as they deserve. We can help eliminate or reduce clawback so that this does not happen to you.
