Read our answers to frequently asked questions below or contact us at (864) 408-8890.

Is There Anything I Can Do About My Medical Bills?

Our firm does their best to have our own insurance company cover your medical expenses while we wait for the outcome of your case. When you retain our services, please make sure to send all related medical bills to our office, so we can forward them to the appropriate insurance company.

What Happens During a Lawsuit?

Before filing suit on your behalf, your lawyer should explain the situation thoroughly. Lawsuits can lead to settlements or trial, depending on the nature of your case. If your case does go to trial, there are steps that must be followed, including filing pleadings, complaints, and other legal documents; the discovery process, including medical exams and depositions; and mediation, which can help you arrive at a settlement.

No matter what your case involves, lawsuits, trials, and litigation should be approached with the assistance of an experienced Greenville injury attorney.

What Is Subrogation?

Subrogation is when an insurance company essentially takes your place in order to receive some of the money you received from the party that was liable for your injury. To recover funds that were expended on your behalf, an insurance company may assert a subrogation claim so they can get some of that money back, pulling from the amount that the liable third-party paid in damages. If this happens, the company is typically required to cover all or some of the attorney's fees your incurred as well as other expenses. Our attorneys can help you navigate this potentially difficult process and ensure that you are taken care of.

What Is the Value of My Case?

There is no way to know how much money, if any, you will win from your case. This is because every case is unique, and there are no precise rules about how much compensation can be gained. For serious catastrophic injury cases, the amount in damages is usaully determined in-part by the amount of coverage the insurance will provide. It will also depend on what kind of injury you sustained, its severity, and how long it is expected that you will suffer the effects of that injury. The claim will also take liability into consideration. At Christian & Christian we are dedicated to fighting for the amount of money that you justly deserve and that will cover your loss and injury.

Why Does it Take so Long?

Before we can make your claim, we need doctors to provide a report that outlines what your medical condition is and details about expected recovery or future complications. Many times doctors are very slow in making these reports and we may have to ask you to contact your doctor to speed up the process. It is important that we wait for your medical condition to be established by a professional because if we rush into things, you may lose compensation you were owed due to not having a full picture of the complications that are likely to arise from your injury.

We will also need to wait until the extent of damage has been determined and all investigations regarding liability have been completed. This process of gathering vital information usually takes several months. If your case goes to trial, it may last several years before it is resolved. Although it is hard for us, we may need to ask our clients to have patience during this complex and difficult time.

We will work as hard and fast as possible to settle your case. Contact Christian & Christian today to discuss your questions in a free consultation.
