Dealing with insurance companies and obtaining appropriate medical attention after you have been injured in a vehicular accident can be overwhelming, and the consequences of doing it wrong can affect your claim for the worse. You need experienced legal counsel who knows how to present your case in the most advantageous position as possible in order to secure a maximum recovery.
One of the most common inquiries made to personal injury attorneys concerns the liability of property owners to people who sustain an injury when they are on the premises.
A common misconception is that the property owner, especially if they are conducting a business, are automatically responsible for the injured person’s injury and medical bills if they are injured on the premises.
Many property owners, including both commercial establishments and private homeowners or renters, carry liability insurance that may provide for “premises medical payments” coverage. This is a limited amount of insurance, usually for $5,000.00 or less, that will pay for the injured person’s medical bills within the coverage limits. Such coverage is paid without regard to fault or legal liability, and will not cover damages for loss of earnings or non-economic damages (aka “pain and suffering” damages) that the injured person may also be claiming.
If somebody owes you money, either due to a loan or the providing of goods and/or services, then you may be in a position of obtaining a recovery if you act promptly by retaining an attorney who is familiar with collection law and tactics, and can best evaluate your prospects for successful action against your debtor.
