Personal Injury Care at Red Rock Surgery Center
- What is personal injury? Personal injury happens when someone gets hurt because of someone else’s actions or negligence. It could be from a car accident, a slip-and-fall, or other accidents caused by someone not being careful.
- What happens in a personal injury case? When someone gets hurt, they may decide to take legal action to get compensation for their injuries. They might hire a lawyer to help them with their case. The lawyer will gather evidence, talk to witnesses, and negotiate with the other party or their insurance company to try to get a fair settlement.
- What is a settlement? A settlement is an agreement between the person who got hurt and the person or company responsible for the injury. Instead of going to court, they agree on a certain amount of money that the responsible party will pay to the injured person. This money is meant to help cover medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses caused by the injury.
- How much money can someone get in a personal injury case? The amount of money someone can get in a personal injury case varies. It depends on factors like the severity of the injury, the impact it has on the person’s life, and the negligence of the responsible party. There is no set amount, and each case is different. Sometimes, people can get a lot of money, but most settlements are not as high as the big amounts you might hear about in the news.
- Why do people hire lawyers for personal injury cases? People hire lawyers because they have experience and knowledge in dealing with personal injury cases. Lawyers can help gather evidence, negotiate with the other party, and make sure the injured person’s rights are protected. Studies have shown that people who hire lawyers for their personal injury cases are more likely to receive a settlement or award compared to those who handle the case on their own.
- What role does a surgery center play with a personal injury claim? If your injury is serious enough that you need medical or surgical care like injections for pain control or repair of broken bones, the care may be provided in a surgery center. This care is often expensive and may or may not be covered by your health insurance. Generally, the financial responsibility for the care is on the person that is responsible for the injury. Until the claim is settled we will provide the facility services in exchange for a medical lien.
