Understanding Financial Compensation
What are injured people entitled to collect?
You should never be forced to pay because of the recklessness of someone else. If you have been injured due to the negligence of another, you are entitled to financial compensation. You may be able to recover money for current and future medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering. It is no secret that insurance companies have provided financial incentives to their employees who reduce the value of insurance claims. Don’t let your claim go underpaid. Don’t take a quick settlement over long-term financial compensation. Call Aurora and Denver Personal Injury Attorney John R. Fuller now. He’s been fighting insurance companies for years and he will fight for you.
The Difference Between Settlement and Judgment
Financial Compensation can come in two common forms, 1.) Settlement and 2.) Judgment. A financial settlement usually comes from an insurance company that represents a responsible party. The terms of personal injury settlements vary greatly depending upon the details of the injury. Settlements are a way for both parties to avoid entering into the litigation process – which means actually filing a lawsuit with the court. If a settlement can not be reached before the statute of limitations, then you may have to actually file your lawsuit and prepare for trial. Trial provides the second most common avenue for financial compensation: jury verdict and judgement. In this scenario you bring your case in front of a judge and jury. Both the plaintiff and defense present their case to a jury or your peers. Based on the presented evidence, a jury decides who are all the responsible parties, what portion of the accident is each party responsible for, and how much financial compensation the injured person should receive.
